The hostages are young: a bus full of teenagers on a church mission.

But rescue specialist Jonathan Grave doesn't believe in ultimatums. For him and his elite team at Security Solutions, it's all about protecting the innocent.

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. Victoria Allman author of: SEAsoned: A Chef's Journey with Her Captain

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!

Digger and Boxers to the rescue again! I love this series, and Damage Control is the best by far. Who wouldnt love Boxers wry sense of humor and Diggers strong sense of right and wrong? I look foward to more of the same by John Gilstrap. Definitely recommed, but you should start with the first in the series to fully appreciate. Buckle up, its a bumpy ride!

Again, I couldn't wait to turn the page to see what happens next. Keep telling myself I'll go to bed after this Chapter. Can't do it. I have to force myself to put this author's books down & get to bed. Absolutely love this series with Jonathan Grave & his team. I love all the characters. Great reading! Can't get enough!

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.

The Jonathan Grave series is another series that I don't want to put down as soon as I read the first page. This book never lets up and is fantastic to the end. I look forward to many more adventures from Digger and Boxers.

Great page turner, as always in John Gilstrap's book. My only complaint is that I had to read it in one setting after waiting months for him to come out with a new book....write faster! (lol). John Gilstrap is one of my favorite authors and this book met and exceeded all of my expectations!

Damage Control is the best of the Jonathan Grave series, so far. Digger kicks ass though much of Mexico before exacting some well earned revenge back home…I really didn’t want it to end. This book won't disappoint!
