My review

Jake Boulder a man Who has a heart of gold and fists of thunder.   Who wouldn’t want to have Jake on your team.  He is a fighter who does what is right with a code of honour not seen often.

This book really hot the mark and is not a typical thriller as it had so much action packed into its pages.  It also has a lot of morals that are shown and of course a number that are broken.

As a former martial artist I see Jake as a anti hero.  He isn’t averse to breaking the law or even using violence to suit his purposes however he has a sense of honour and never goes overboard with the violence preferring to end the fight by the quickest route.

The story was too notch and is what I have come to expect from this author.  He has a skill at making his characyers likeable as well as capable.  

This book had just what I needed at the time a book that had action but also had a lot of crime solving in it as well.  I am looking forward to more of Jake Boulder and what happens next.
