When Lyle Villines learns his daughter has leukemia, he searches for a way to pay the huge medical bills that come with the condition. In desperation, he takes a well-paying under-the-table job driving a delivery van. He doesn't know what the cargo is, but the pay is enough to make him ignore that for the sake of his child.
Lyle questions his decision when he's hijacked on the interstate and left alive only so he can deliver a message to his employer. Turns out the load wasn't exactly legal. Nor was it insured, meaning he will have to pay for the loss by taking on a new job - cooking meth. Not only does it pay better, his boss says, but it keeps him off the road. When Lyle objects, he's given a simple choice. He can either take the opportunity, or his family will suffer. Faced with no other option, the only thing to do is follow orders...and hope he can get out alive.

Shadows of Breaking Bad.
I was voluntarily provided a free copy of this book by the author / narrator / publisher and I'm leaving an unbiased review.
From the summary, I figured that there will be some similarities between this book and the Breaking Bad tv show. And there were quite a few such similarities. The author also tried to dance around that same dilemma at places. The original parts of the book manage to stand on their own, despite the similarities at other places. But the problem with this book is - nothing comes as a surprise. You can predict what's going to happen next and that ruins the fun of reading the book.
fwiw, the narrator does a good job.
