It's a Tie for best of the series...
I just don't know how I could have missed this book! John Gilstrap is one of those authors I watch for. I've enjoyed the Jonathan Graves series as well as his stand alone Nathan's Run narrated by George Guidall.
This is a very good series and this book may well be the best or at least equal to End Game which I had said was the best in the series about 3 1/2 years ago.
In this book Graves and Boxers are sent to Mexico rescue a DEA agent kidnapped by a drug cartel. After retrieving the man the man the they find themselves abandoned with the cartel head hunting them down. They take refuge in an orphanage run by same man and escape into the jungle with the orphanage residents and black market weapons in tow. Graves knows the children will be killed if left behind.
This book is so fast paced and the story is exciting. There is quite a bit of conflict between Graves and Boxers because Boxers priority is to save the agent and Graves can't leave children behind to die. It certainly has a Bang Up ending.
Basil Sands does an excellent job narrating. I've seen a few people complain about him and I understand, he does mispronounce some of the simpler words but he's been doing this series so long I've come to expect him to continue.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series. If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
