Summary

For the last six years, Tim Scarberry has called Portland, Oregon, home. Placed there by the Witness Protection Program, he has assimilated into the existence set up for him, trying to gain some level of enjoyment from the life he never asked for and wanted even less.  

An existence that is completely destroyed by a single phone call, nothing more than a message telling him that his last remaining tether to his old life has been severed in a most tragic and unexpected way.  

Having no choice but to abandon his adopted life and return to his roots, Scarberry finds himself dropped into a situation far more harrowing than he ever could have imagined. Allied with a single sheriff's deputy - a young woman he knew only briefly in his youth who is fighting battles of her own - the two face a network of illegal gun runners, apathetic bureaucracy, and federal agency, ultimately squaring off with the very thing Scarberry's been trying to avoid for so long....

Very well written thriller

I took a chance on this because I liked the narrator in the sample and even though it only had one review - and it was a 1 star - they didn't say why they didn't like it - so I thought - I'll give it a try. I'm so glad I did.

This is a new-to-me author and I thought he did a great job of portraying a person whose life has been stolen by his participation in the witness protection program. What I really liked was that it wasn't so fast paced you got whiplash and the action scenes were believable and realistic. You do have to pay attention in the beginning because there are 4 different POV characters and they switch fast due to the short chapters. In audible, that can get you a little mixed up. Just rewind. It all works out.

I would have loved to see a little romance - but that's just me. This is a thriller so I can't count that off. Still maybe if there is a follow-up to this story? Anyway the characters were well developed and interesting and the story was intriguing and kept me wondering about the backstory right through the book. So that was fun.

If you like stories with great characters, some action, some intrigue and some plotting - you will enjoy this book. Very well narrated too.
