Synopsis: Book by Paoletti, Marc
From Booklist: David Cole?s career as a Navy SEAL didn?t end well. Life is OK now, though. He?s working in the movies, dating an exciting film director, and even teaching the underwater trade to his son, Ronny. But when he crosses swords with Gary Stanford, a film producer financed by organized crime, his world blows apart. Literally. Stanford decides to eliminate Cole and hires a disgraced SEAL whom Cole drummed out of the navy because of his actions during a failed Iraq mission that tainted Cole?s career. Frank Ruger sabotages one of Cole?s jobs, leaving Cole terribly burned. Struggling with the never-ending pain and obsessed with revenge, Cole sets out to kill Ruger, a very formidable opponent. This is your basic action thriller with enough violence for at least two Die Hard installments. But like that cinema franchise, the novel works because the good guy and the villains are believable, realistically motivated, and emotionally scarred individuals working through their issues with knives, guns, and bombs rather than conventional therapy. Hey, whatever gets you to a better place. Genuinely engaging escapist fiction with a bit of a surprise ending. --Wes Lukowsky
