My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another solid Tim Rackley suspense offering, this time with a complicated antagonist who could be Tim's shadow. The story starts with a prison break and the US Marshal's office is called in, with "Troubleshooter" Rackley on the job. It was amusing and poignant to see his home life with his active and into everything toddler son, especially since the series has focused so much on Rackley's tragic family circumstances.
And this book is all about family. The escaped con has an agenda, and his purpose is slowly revealed over the course of the story while a little boy's life hangs in the balance. Rackley is driven to find the fugitive, but the two of them are sides of the same coin--highly skilled ex-Special Forces.
I found the story engrossing, and once again, it could have been ripped from the headlines in its take on corrupt Big Pharma companies. I would suggest readers start with Kill Clause, the first Rackley novel, to appreciate the full character development that Hurwitz so skillfully weaves in.
