No more deception.
Brought to the Caribbean island of Dominican Republic on the premise that he could finally close the chapter on the darkest moment of his life—and rid the world of a cold-blooded killer—Booker T. Adams instantly finds a far different scene. Set against the backdrop of a city consumed by the rising fear of terrorism and a brutal drug lord, a woman, seemingly with two lives and even two faces, uses her hypnotic charm to get what she wants, sending Booker on a mission to rescue a teenage boy held hostage.
No more lies.
Befriended by a fired cop and a homeless kid with nothing to live for, Booker struggles to understand fact versus fiction, while staving off wild bores, snakes, terrorist traps, and a past that has haunted him for almost thirty years. Is he dealing with people believing their own hypocrisy, or have they simply perfected the art of betrayal and treachery?
No more killing.
The all-powerful rule with brute force, killing women and children like they’re swatting flies. It’s a savagery that Booker can’t comprehend, let alone defeat. With the smell of death stuffed down his throat, the man with everything to lose puts everything on the line—because he can stand…
I have been following this series from the beginning and I
have become quite enamoured with Booker T. Adams. This title can be read as a
stand-alone, but it would be in your best interest to read the series in order
which will provide one with a better insight into each of the characters.
In this installment Booker finds himself in the Dominican
Republic as he was hired to find his ex-girlfriend who was wanted on several
counts of murder in Dallas, Texas. New
evidence had come to light which indicated that she was residing on the Caribbean
island. While there he found himself
embroiled in another case which in true Booker fashion will have readers on the
edge of their seats. There are
kidnappers and members of the drug cartel to contend with.
We are introduced to some new and interesting characters.
They were a great addition to the story. My favourite was the homeless teenager
Bolt. This is not his real name but when you read the story you will understand
why he calls himself Bolt. Some interesting facts in regards to Booker’s past
came to light within this story which revealed more of his human side. These events enabled him to let go of the
bitterness he has been harbouring in his heart in regards to the absence of his
from his life while growing up.
Like all the books in the series, No Mas was fast paced,
suspenseful and action packed. It was
filled with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end.
The story is riveting and will hold your interest from start to finish.
My only problem with this story was that there were some
comments which were made in Spanish.
Having not being a student of the language, this made it a bit
challenging for me to read. The comments
were translated, but I had to reread certain parts so that I did not get lost
as at times the translation did not immediately follow the comments made.
If you enjoy, mysteries/thrillers that will get your blood
pumping and your heart racing at every page turn then you need to read this
series. You definitely will not regret it.
