Publisher's Summary

"Rocket-paced suspense."
—Jeffery Deaver
Four children's lives hang in the balance. A vicious criminal is on the loose. With law enforcement at a dead end, there's only one man who can recover the hostages: Jonathan Grave.
FBI Special Agent Irene Rivers is horrified to learn that because of mistakes made by agents under her command, a murderer and child molester will walk free. When Irene's own daughters become the monster's next targets, she reaches out in desperation to an elite Special Forces operator. His name is Jonathan Grave. For Grave, results matter more than procedures. Together, they discover a new kind of justice - and a new breed of evil.

Well written, fast paced Jonathan Graves novella

Would you listen to Soft Targets again? Why?

Probably if I didn't have anything else lined up or needed something short while I was waiting for a release.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes and no. When the story began the listener can kind of predict how it's going to end however it the getting there that does throw some twists into this story.

What about Basil Sands’s performance did you like?

Basil Sands is perfect for this story line. I had never listened to him before the Graves series but now think of Jonathan Graves as soon as I hear his voice.

Any additional comments?

This is a really good novella. It gives some background information on the relationship between Graves, Dom, Irene and Boxers. It also shows why Irene/Wolverine calls on Graves and allows or encourages him to do what he does even when it doesn't always comply with the law. But, he's "on the side of the angels"!

Marvelous thriller!

After listening to most recent three full length novels in the Jonathan Graves series I was not a big John Gilstrap fan. Two of the books earned 4 stars while the most recent earned only 2 stars. Soft Targets is a novella in the Graves series. It is superb! Both Gilstrap and narrator Basil Sands are outstanding. The story is about an FBI agent whose 12 and 14 year old daughters are kidnapped. The FBI agent, through her priest, seeks the help of US Special Forces soldier Jonathan Graves and his soldier friend in finding them quickly. Such help must be off the books since it is both illegal and unconstitutional for soldiers to operate on US soil.
