Publisher's Summary

A new thriller from the number one best-selling author of After the Fall: Jason's Tale.
After the mob destroys his restaurant, killing his pregnant wife in the process, Dan Stone has nothing left to live for except...payback.
He unleashes a series of devastating attacks on the mob designed to destroy their operations before exacting his final revenge. Using his skills as an experienced army sniper, Dan methodically sets out to assassinate those responsible and take down the Brooklyn crime family involved in killing his wife. However, his reign of terror and killing leads to a dead end. There seems to be no way out after his mission of revenge is completed. His activities attract attention of an unusual group, and they offer an exit path. As events draw to their exciting conclusion and Dan's options close down around him, will the devil's bargain he's offered prove a way out?
In Dan Stone, we have a new thriller hero. A blue collar kind of guy who'd rather not play the role he's now called to play, no matter how good he is at it.

Really enjoyed this story!

This was a welcome surprise, really enjoyed this story. Dan's character was perfect as the damaged soldier on a mission. Felt like I was reading a punisher novel, which is a good thing since I love the punisher. Looking forward to reading the next installment. If I can't comment on anything, some of the female voices the narrator used were a little bland compared to the male ones. But overall an awesome story and narration.

I recieved this copy for free in exchange for an honest review.

More to come I hope!

After listening to so many books about heroes with unequaled powers it was refreshing to see an average every man with an attainable skillset meet a challenge with bravery and smarts. David Nees set the ground work for a series that I am looking forward to. This is a credit worthy effort that I hope will return for many more volumes. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review with appreciation.

This time it is personal

In many ways this book reminds me of one of those revenge-based action movies, you have a highly trained former military person out for revenge after his wife and unborn child are killed by the mob, but the author manages to elevate the story from this somewhat simplistic setup.

One thing that I am glad about is that the author didn't persist with the excessive listing of guns and ammo types that would have detracted from the actual characters and story while adding nothing to that story.

This book is mostly focused on a man named Dan Stone who used to be an army sniper and is now on a quest for vengeance against members of the mob that killed his wife and unborn child when they fire-bombed his restaurant. He basically declares war on an entire crime family, hurting them by destroying their operations prior to finally taking his revenge on the ones responsible.

Alongside Dan, there are a number of notable characters, some old school friends who get pulled into the fallout from his mission and of course a range of mobsters and law enforcement who are both trying to stop him, there is also one other person who might be able to offer him a purpose and to make use of his skills once he has finished his revenge mission.

With so many Italian-American characters featuring in this book it would have been very easy for the narrator to have given an over the top performance leading to caricatures rather than characters, but thankfully he refrained from this and went with more of a tone for these characters rather than a full-on accent and it worked well as they were suitably distinct without being a distraction.

Overall, this book was an interesting one that grew beyond the basic starting point into something more, it will be interesting to see if the main characters will remain interesting in subsequent books when the series will presumably move onto a less personal setting.
