Amid struggling with his addictions, former Marine Andrew St George goes AWOL from his rich family and lavish lifestyle. He appears months later in Miami with one intent; convince his friend, Emilio Cortez, to start a Private Military Company with him. Having left the Corps after his brother was killed in a drive-by, Emilio’s been stuck working three jobs to support his extended family, all of whom he lives with in a small apartment.
While Andrew and Emilio enter into the security business looking for an escape from their civilian lives, both struggle with their demons. From the slums of Miami, the glitzy South Beach nightlife, to Cartel controlled Mexico, the boys will learn that despite their best intentions, no one job is the same and that there are battles to be fought outside of war zones.
This is a great mix of action and insight. Andrew and Emilo are brothers in arms. After their stint in a war zone, they come together for form a security business.
I am not a huge fan of war reads, so I was hesitant to start this one. I really was not sure what to expect with this tale. This is not a war read as much as it is an action and adventure. It really keeps you on your toes.
These two Marines have experienced many things together and carry a lot of baggage around with them. Life is hard especially when we carry stuff from the past. This section is packed with interesting information about each character. How the past has influenced their life and their decision-making. Also, how the past changes their future.
A highly engaging and compelling read from start to finish. Can’t wait to see what these two decide to do next!
This is a very unique way to write a book. If I understand this correctly, each section is free for 5 days and anew section is released weekly. Now I have to go get the others to follow what these guys are up to!
