Description

An island paradise held hostage. A band of dangerous killers unleashed. A sinister plot that could push the superpowers to the brink of war. The perfect formula for explosive suspense in John Gilstrap’s electrifying new Jonathan Grave thriller . . .

For Jonathan Grave and Gail Bonneville, the Crystal Sands Resort is the perfect getaway—until gunshots shatter the night. Wealthy guests are yanked out of their sleep, herded like animals, forced to submit to their captors’ demands. But Jonathan and Gail are no ordinary vacationers. The assassins who invade their bungalow receive a deadly surprise. And two determined, skilled operatives escape into the jungle.
 
Jonathan and Gail are not the only free agents on the island. Cut off from his usual tactical team, with a pair of unlikely allies he can’t fully trust, Grave’s only hope of reliable back-up is his partner Boxers, who’s hundreds of miles—and hours—away. It won’t be long before the invaders turn this tropical paradise into the powderkeg that will set off global chaos. Grave may be without weapons, but he’s never without resources. Bold action is the only solution. Like the scorpion, Grave must strike fast and hard . . .

    I have really enjoyed the previous books but this one I struggled to get through. Jonathan seemed preachy and arrogant. More so than any of the other books in the series. I like Gilstrap’s writing but this one seemed a little far fetched and unrealistic. The cast of characters were ok but the constant reference to the backstory became tiresome at times

    I should know better by now, not to start reading one of your books in the middle of a work week. On the other hand, it feels like a mini vacation with old friends sharing a new adventure. Always a little sad when it ends, but glad to have spent time together. Looking forward to next time.

    The elements of the story are all there, as is a fair amount of character development, but the end result is a lot of extra pages that went nowhere many times. I’ve read all the books and this one is a stroke or two over par, unfortunately.
