I enjoyed his fantasy series, so I thought I'd try out Brown's crime thriller series. This is the story of an ex-military/ex-con who gets caught up in a kidnapping plot when all he wants to do is make good with his life. The book reads like an episodic television series without much deep characterization but lots of action. I appreciated Sam the Mormon, bible-loving sidekick who, for a change, is not depicted as a zealot freak or a dimwit.
