Publisher's Summary

Go further into the conspiracy....
Candle thought it was over. Back to the status quo. That's why, when a letter appears in his mailbox from someone he thought was dead, he's dragged back into the middle of the whole mess.
He'll have to scurry down to Texas to save the life of a man he doesn't even know, because if he doesn't, his wife and unborn child will again become targets.
The mystery spurring his quest grows deeper because everyone involved seems to be wearing a false face. And his supposedly benevolent employers keep pushing him further and further from the truth. Their ulterior motives have to be at the heart of this mess, but can Candle find out why?
The clock ticks mercilessly on as he hurries toward the Mexican border, all while trying to puzzle the reasons why he's been singled-out and what's driving all this death and destruction.
This second novella in the trilogy combines the action-packed chase thriller style with an amateur sleuth mystery, all told through protagonist Tucker Candle's unique and funny voice.

An action packed sequel.

Once again we find Candle in some trouble! After the events of the last book, all Candle wants to do is settle down and forget everything. His wife is coming home and their baby is almost here. But it's Candle we are talking about!!! He always seems to fall into it unintentionally!!! When a letter from Kareem arrives telling Candle that he needs to save Kareems brother, he is ready to bin it, but it plays on his mind constantly. He ends up having to go to Texas anyway so decides to drop by and see this guy, what's the harm?? Right!! Wrong, Candle once again finds himself caught up in the action and on the run from some trigger happy people!

There isn't much more I can say about the plot because with it being such a short story, I'll inadvertently spoil something, so all I'll say is that we get a few answers, more questions, plenty of action and adventure, more characters, more twists and turns and pretty much more of everything in this one. It's a fast paced, intense and addictive read. I loved book 1 and am pretty much hooked with this edition.

The author has a way with his words that will immediately grab you and not let go. His characters are all well fleshed out and developed. Candle especially has grown a lot since the first one. He isn't as naive as he was and is becoming quite the hero. Heskett also manages to throw in unexpected moments that I never saw coming. This is a story, that once you start, you won't want to put it down. Also the ending!!! I totally need book 3 to see what happens next. It's a cliffhanger that has left me wanting much more!!

In all, this is an action packed sequel, and indeed, an action packed series. The authors style has gotten me curious about his other works. I can see him becoming a firm favourite!

William Coon was fantastic, again! He has a wide range of voices and gives each character their own. He really brought the book to life and I hope he is narrating book 3!!
