there. As he digs further, he learns the conspiracy reaches more deeply
than he could have imagined. Finally, he will have to face the question,
What is a father willing to do to save his child? The answer? Anything.
Anything at all.
Jeff Gunhus starts off fast and doesn't let up, from page one, I was baited, hooked and reeled in completely. Part mystery, part thriller, part sci-fi AND part paranormal, fast-paced, intense, what’s not to like? The characters were intense, detailed and their pain, terror and confusion felt real! I had to relax my death grip on my Kindle, I was that involved, hanging on every word, action and event as I was taken from an innocent car ride into the bowels of an underground scene from Hell. And the ending? It could have gone a couple of different ways without a doubt, but I have to say, I was not able to second guess the author, brilliant!
