  • Abel Yeager is dead broke, down on his luck, and suffering from a serious case of what-the-hell-does-it-matter. His transition from active Marine to stateside long-haul trucker hit a wicked speed bump when his rig was involved in a wreck that claimed the life of a pregnant woman and laid him up for several months.
  • Back at work but deeply in debt, Yeager meets bookstore owner Charlie Buchanan in St. Louis and jumps at the chance to haul a load of remainder books to Austin for her. On the way south, a crew of truck thieves tracks his every move. But none of them know what Charlie's ex has smuggled inside the book pallets, who he stole it from, or how far the owner will go to get it back. Charlie's the first person Yeager has cared about in a long time, but as their bond deepens, so does the danger they're in.
  • With enemy forces closing in, Yeager battles greed, corruption, and his own fatalism in a bid to hold true to Yeager's First Law: come home at the end of the day.

  • My Thoughts: 

  • Yeager rocks!!! Both the story and Yeager himself!! So Yeager is a truck driver, and on a routine drive, he is hijacked when pulls into a rest stop. Now Yeager is an ex-marine and will not take this lying down, but just as he is trying to come up with a way to disarm the guy, a woman comes out with a gun pointed at the hijacker. What follows is an action packed and addicting read!!

  • Plot wise, this is the kind of book that would translate really well to the big screen as there is plenty of action and plenty of things that the special effects folks would have a ball with!! The whole book reminded me of Rambo! 

  • Character wise, Yeager is the bomb!! A total and utter bad ass!! I'll tell you one thing, the bad guys didn't know what they were getting themselves in for :) I don't want to say much about what he does, but gosh he is awesome!! Lol. 

  • I really liked Charlie too. She is a quiet girl but when she sees what is happening to Yeager, she isn't afraid to pull out her gun and step in. She is badass in her own way, plus she runs a book store!!! Lol. Also Victor is awesome! Such a fun character!! 

  • In all, this is one of those books that you can't help but enjoy. All action, big scenes, plenty of bad guys and a hero worthy of the the name!! It's not all action though, because we get to see Yeager and Charlie's relationship develop. We also get a look at Yeager before and find out why things are happening to him! Extremely well written and developed, this is a must red for fans of big blockbuster type books! 

  • I've said it before about J. Scott Bennett, and I'll say it again, his range of tones and accents is truly impressive!! It really felt like there was multiple people narrating the story! Loved his portrayal of Victor!!! He absolutely nailed the performance in this and he brought the book alive.
