Thrilling… and impossible to put down.
Oak pumps new life into familiar action thriller trope in his second Jett Landry Saga, featuring the troubled vigilante Jett Landry. It’s been four years since Jett lost her parents, the pair of the infamous private detectives Marcus Jackson and his partner Ashley Garcia, to a shootout. Still reeling from tragedy, Jett leads a lonely existence in downtown Port City. When a lone vigilante begins to wreak havoc on human traffickers in the county north of Port City, Mike Krayton Sr., the Regional Director for the Port City Region and right-hand man of the charismatic “Governor” of the new Texas Republic, is convinced it is Jett, but taking the lone warrior down is not as easy as it seems. Oak expertly builds tension, balancing Jett’s inner turmoil with her quest to clean the Port City of human traffickers. Oak’s steady escalation of the risks and personal tragedies that Jett faces, and her courage in the face of relentless harrowing circumstances along with her ability to outthink and outgun the scores of dangerous criminals on her trail, make her a memorable heroine. The secondary characters, including Diana, Melinda, Mike among others are equally convincing. Blood-soaked battles add to the thrill, and the concrete plotting and precise prose keep readers flipping pages. The novel’s tone is dark and melancholy which suits Jett’s tragic circumstances. Loaded on action as well as emotions, this swiftly-paced action thriller argues that even the most vicious battles with criminals are less harrowing than the struggles within the psyche. This is a winner.
