Publisher's Summary

Private military contractors. They're not just for foreign wars anymore. Jon Cantrell, a disgraced ex-cop, works for one such company. He's a DEA agent paid on a commission basis, patrolling one of the busiest drug-hubs in the country: Dallas, Texas.

When Cantrell and his partner and sometimes lover confiscate the wrong shipment of drugs, they find themselves in possession of a star witness in an upcoming cartel trial that could destroy the largest criminal organization in the hemisphere.

To turn a profit, all they have to do is safely deliver the witness to the US Attorney on the other side of the state. An easy trip, except the witness doesn’t want to go and a group of competing DEA contractors and a corrupt Dallas police officer want everybody involved dead.

This heart-stopping thriller takes readers deep into a strange underworld where the lines between government officials and mercenaries blur. In this complex network of drug traffickers, cartels, politicians, and police, no one's hands are clean.

Luke Daniels talent was wasted on this book

Save the credit. The author proved he had traveled around Texas, but he didn't deliver a very captivating story. This is just about blood, insanity and sexual innuendo. Oh, that's right a little racial stereo typing....as you can tell I wish I had used my credit else where

Plenty of twists and turns.

This is the first book in Harry Hunsicker's Jon Cantrell series, and I must admit I enjoyed it quite a bit. The story is filled with plenty of twists and turns, and just when you think you've got it figured out...bang! something happens to completely change the story. Definitely will be check out the other books in the series.

Luke Daniels, as always, delivers a stellar performance. I can't praise this guy enough. He's never disappointed me and I'm almost always willing to give a book narrated by him a chance, even if it's outside my preferred genres.

Barely okay book with awesome narration..


This was a decent story, not a murder mystery but a murder story. There was soooo much killing, And the story was soooo long. You could take 200 pages away and you wouldn’t miss anything. The author just kept getting Jon and Piper into one thing after another, one gun battle after another, but never got hurt. It was kind of unbelievable.

You can really tell in a review what the story was about because it was about because there was soooo much going on.

I did like the hero and heroine, Jon and Piper, and there was so good characters too. The only thing I didn’t like was Sinclair and Sadie. You could tell she was kind of mentally challenged and was ALMOST 19 years old and Sinclair told Sadie the he was old enough to be her grandfather but that didn’t stop him from kissing her and taking her with him. That was kind of yucky!

There was no sex, thank God, and the F-bomb was used 16 times.

As to the narration: To be honest I only got this book because Luke Daniels was narration. He’s so awesome with his voices and his emotions.

profoundly stupid protagonist. the main characters

the two main characters made so many mistakes over and over that it was laughable. they were supposed to be experts yet they kept escaping certain death by sheer luck. in addition the author apparently thanks fat people only move in a waddle because he went out of his way to mention this about every obese character in the book.
