Publisher's Summary

Gregg Kaplan is not an ordinary man, but a man with special skills, courtesy of the United States Government. His assignment is to stay off the grid when he innocently stumbles into a blown witness protection detail in Little Rock, Arkansas. He simply could not walk away from the impending mayhem. After the dust settles, a mortally wounded Deputy U.S. Marshal makes him promise to personally deliver the witness to a U.S. Marshals Service safe site. Not just a promise, an oath.
A pledge between ex-Army Delta Force comrades. A trust that could not be broken - once in, never out. Kaplan soon suspects the witness he vowed to protect has secrets of his own; secrets that go beyond his testimony for the U.S. government. When he discovers the witness is being tracked, Kaplan teams with a WitSec Deputy U.S. Marshal assigned to recover the witness, but soon realizes some merciless people are dead set on preventing the witness from reaching the safe site. But the witness has a hidden agenda - one that could cost Kaplan his life.

WOW! Constant action and suspense.

Blown is a stand alone novel, not a book in Chuck Barrett's Jake Pendleton series. The story starts in Little Rock where Gregg Kaplan makes a promise to a dying US Marshall to deliver a man in witness protection to DC. Both Kaplan and the dying Marshall are ex-Delta Force, so Kaplan considers his promise to be an oath of honor. From that point on the action and suspense never abate.

I very highly recommend this novel to all lovers of thrillers.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

I should have listened to Andrew

It's no easy task to write a book. I get that. I've been trying for years. This type of book makes me want to lower my expectations of good writing... Maybe I should say "Good story". Has anybody figured out that the Sopranos was the last believable story line for the mob. I swear - If it isn't the Italian Mob - It's the Russian Mob in every single book or movie thriller. And of course - A nuclear Bomb.

The last good Nuke story was in the Sniper Elite series # 2.. Why am I putting that in here? Because the Sniper Elite Books 1 & 2 should be the measuring point for all action thriller books. I would say the Mitch Rapp series - But only a couple come close to that.

I didn't hate the character.... I definitely did not like this book though. It was way too cheesy

Still looking..... J
