As a sniper with the elite Massachusetts State Police SWAT Team, Bobby Dodge saved a woman and her young son by shooting her armed husband. But vicious rumors begin to circulate the next morning when Bobby loses his gun and his privileges. It turns out the dead man was the son of a prominent Boston judge and had accused his wife of poisoning their son. Facing awkward stares and a crippling wrongful death lawsuit, Bobby begins his own investigation into the fateful shooting, and a fight to reclaim the life he holds dear. As the trail takes him into a twisted minefield of sordid wealth and family secrets, he is learning that nothing, and no one, is what they seem.
Don 't Bother
I don't know where to begin. I am a police officer, I am a SWAT officer, I have been in a shooting. I know quite a few other fellow officers that have also been involved in shootings. The main character reacts like no one else I have ever even heard of, this guy doesn't exist, and shouldn't exist. A true police officer would never do ANY of the things that this guy does, the author made him an emotional wreck who could not handle his job at the beginning, and then tried to turn him into a warrior at the end. Very disappointing, a couple of other books from the author are good. This was a waste of 10 hours.
The best story I have ever read. I was guessing till the end and I was happily suprised at the climax. I recomended this book to all my friends and to date all support my review. Great job Lisa
I have to agree with the previous review by yuther14. The main character shouldn't exist. The character is simply not believable. I enjoyed "Hide," which has the same character, but more believable, and I got to like him, so I purchased this book to learn more about the back story of this character. If you can set aside all disbelief, chock it up to "this is fiction created by someone's imagination," it is entertaining enough to pass the time. But the writing is not great, and I found myself getting angry at the main character instead of connecting with him. Worse, the female reader's interpretation of male voices is completely wrong. She narrates very well, but when she speaks as one of the male characters in the novel (and the main character is male so this happens a lot), she seems to think it important to deepen her voice to a level that would be laughable if it weren't so annoying.
