This is the first book by John Gilstrap I have read. I was hooked by the first chapter. This is a action packed book from start to finish.When an Indiana college student is kidnapped Jonathan Grave is called in. When Jonathan"s plan for covert rescue explodes into a deadly shooting spree the authorities are out for blood, Someone wants to control a deadly secret and that someone is willing to capture, torture and kill anyone who gets in the way. Jonathan, Venice, Boxer and Dom all people you want on your side. Will definitely be reading Hostage Zero the next in the series.
