Once again John Gilstrap demonstrates his command over pacing, suspense, tension, and really likable characters. Damage Control throws us into Digger and Big Guy's lives again in a new hostage extraction adventure set in the hot sticky jungles of Mexico. The enemy this time--a drug lord AND a church! You can't ask for a better set-up than that. When a bus load of teenage missionaries is kidnapped for ransom, Digger and Big Guy must go in and retrieve the kids and bring them to safety. Of course, it is never as easy as that and throughout the course of the rescue things go terribly wrong.

My favorite thing about Gilstrap and Damage Control is the characters, not only the recurring series characters, but the new "precious cargo" they must extract from the tense situation. Tristan is a thirteen-year old boy who shows not only a lot of spunk, but a lot of tender humanity. You can't help but root for him.

Damage Control is one of the best thrillers/action adventures I've read this year. You will not be disappointed.

This is the first Gilstrap book I have read. It was OK. I found the pacing to be very good as it moved along well. The story was also somewhat interesting. The characters are what killed it for me. They were all a bit too perfect to be believable. Maybe it was just the authors writing style, but I had difficulty being absorbed by the characters.

    Love the series, but sometimes the great storyline is overshadowed by the descriptive brutality. Still recommend as an intense action read. Once you start reading, hard to find a stopping place!
