Gregg Kaplan is not an ordinary man, but a man with special skills, courtesy of the United States Government.

His assignment is to stay off the grid when he innocently stumbles into a blown witness protection detail in Little Rock, Arkansas. He simply could not walk away from the impending mayhem.

After the dust settles, a mortally wounded Deputy U.S. Marshal makes him promise to personally deliver the witness to a U.S. Marshals Service safe site.

Not just a promise, an oath. A pledge between ex-Army Delta Force comrades.
A trust that could not be broken--Once in, never out.

Kaplan soon suspects the witness he vowed to protect has secrets of his own; secrets that go beyond his testimony for the U.S. government. When he discovers the witness is being tracked, Kaplan teams with a WitSec Deputy U.S. Marshal assigned to recover the witness, but soon realizes some merciless people are dead set on preventing the witness from reaching the safe site.

But the witness has a hidden agenda of his own--One that could cost Kaplan his life.

Blown 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 11 reviews.

Blown is a military thriller mystery adventure with sexy and dangerous Gregg Kaplan. Mobsters, assassins, good guy, bad guys and her. Gregg Kaplan was a Special Forces assassin, but now he works on the civilian side of government. He had to find her. He had four hours. But something happened and his cover is Blown. He had made Tony, Senior Inspector Moss of the Marshal’s Service,a promise. A promise is a promise and he would deliver the man to WitSec, no matter what. I quickly became enamored of Kaplan and his unique skills. The woman he is searching for is his love interest from Toymaker. I have not read that…yet. The identity of the assassin was a marvelous surprise. I love complex scenarios with more than one angle. It keeps the mystery alive and me on the edge of my seat with suspense, trying to figure it out. Chuck Barret makes me think he brings his personal life into his books with nicknames for his characters, like Dirt Man for Pete Moss. What can I say? It’s that something extra that gives the writing that additional kick. Do we see a book coming in the near future telling us his story? Could Greg and Tony become a team? I can see it. I received Blow from Chuck Barret in return for an honest review.

Another good Chuck Barrett read. At first I was disappointed Jake & team weren't in the book, but nice to follow Gregg Kaplan in his adventures. I'll look forward to a follow-up .

Great book by Chuck Barrett. He takes a character, Gregg Kaplan, from his previous books and gives him his own stage. And what a stage it is. If you like to read thrillers by authors such as Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Ben Coes, David Baldacci and the like, you'll love Gregg Kaplan and Chuck Barrett.

I absolutely LOVED this book. It is very fast paced and grabbed my attention from the very first page and kept it until the very last page. Complex characters in a sophisticated plot that rivals the best of Lee Child or Brad Thor. I found that I couldn't put the book down, and then once I finished it, I was sorry it was over. I don't know if this is the beginning of a series or not, but I really hope it is. I loved the unlikely partnership of Kaplan and Moss. This is a must read for thriller fans and I have added the author to my must read authors' list.
