Friendly Fire by John Gilstrap

Book blurb…

It begins with a shocking act of vengeance. Barista Ethan Falk chases a customer into the parking lot and kills him. He tells police that years ago the older man abducted and tortured him. Then Ethan’s story takes an even stranger turn: he says he was rescued by a guy named Scorpion. Of course, there is no record of either the kidnapping or the rescue, because Scorpion–Jonathan Grave–operates outside the law and leaves no evidence.

As Grave struggles to find a way to defend his former precious cargo without blowing his cover, he learns the dead man has secrets that trace to an ongoing terrorist plot against the heart of America. It’s up to Grave and his team to stop it. But first they must rescue Ethan Falk–a second time.

My thoughts…

I could not put this story down. The pace and the plot had me breathless and thoroughly entertained.

The character called Scorpion is certainly someone I would want on my side if I was backed into a corner.  He not only saves Ethan Falk but also foils a terrorist plot along the way.

I have not read any John Gilstrap novels before but I certainly will into the future.

If you like action packed stories about how bad guys get their comeuppance you will love Friendly Fire.  Well written and action packed all the way to the final page.
