A ruthless crime boss…a mansion with a chilling secret…a young man faced with the biggest decision of his life.
When his daughter goes into premature labor, Shelby Alexander leaves his northern hideaway for downstate. No sooner does he drive into town that things go sour. His ex-wife, Helen, faces deadly consequences after hard times force her to take desperate measures, setting off a dangerous chain of events. Racing against time to save those he loves the most and avoid unspeakable tragedy, Shelby faces down an evil crime lord, trained killers, and one of the closest brushes with death yet.
Point of view:
This is the third book in the Shelby Alexander series and an enjoyable addition. Shelby’s ex-wife owes money to a mobster who is now hunting her down and endangering his daughter as well. Multiple POV’s and we hear a lot from Jimmy relative to Shelby. I guess because of the length, we’re kind of just ignoring the people of Serenity which felt a little off. Plus, I’ve enjoyed Carly as a character and her interactions with Shelby, but she’s completely ignored in this one. I didn’t like it as much as Serenity Stalked, but it was still an action packed listen.
Theo Holland continues to be an excellent choice for this series. He gives all the characters unique voices.
I own the ebook, however, I received a free copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
