Audie Award Finalist, Mystery, 2014
Book 1 of the Brainrush series was touted in Tthe Wall Street Journal as the number one Bestselling Action/Adventure in their "Readers Guide to Self-Published Big Sellers" (December 9, 2011). This sequel, The Enemy of my Enemy, was released in early December 2011 to rave reviews.

Former combat pilot Jake Bronson believed the worst was behind him. But when a sophisticated terrorist cell shows up in his hometown, he's drawn into a conflict that threatens the heart and soul of every mother in America. The bonds of love and loyalty are tested as Jake and his friends are swept into a deadly chase that takes them from the beaches of California to the depths of the world's longest underground river, and finally to the remote jungles of the Venezuelan rain forest - where Jake discovers that it will take far more than his enhanced abilities to prevent what is coming.

I liked how he did the voice of the bad guy. It had to have hurt, but it sounded really cool and true to the story description.
The story was action scene after action scene with our hero barely getting out of each scrape, sometimes pretty miraculously, most of the time just way over the top. It was fun at first, but by the end of the book I just wanted it to be over. I was exhausted from the endless series of narrow escapes and tough guy attitude. In the second novel I was expecting a litte more character depth and development. Instead it seemed to be more of the same as the first novel with few new developments other than lots of action.
Almost as good as the first book
I rarely get time to sit down and read books so I do prefer audio books for that reason. I do love to read, but I have more time available when driving to listen to books.
The characters commitment to each other.
He gives depth to the characters by the different voices and emotions in his narration.
I could break this one up more than the first book.
While I did find the story very compelling, I also felt that the independent vigilantly violence got a bit out of hand to the point that it was hard to stay quite as connected to the story. Made it more unbelievable.
