“Like an arrow in the hand of a warrior, so are the sons of those who have been shaken. Hurl lightning bolts and scatter them. Shoot your arrows and rout them.”
• King David, circa 1000 BC
Wyatt Stryker, an ex-special ops, has suddenly found his more recent roles as a father, husband and doctor thrown into a world of chaos. A deadly drug cartel has targeted him and his family and forced Stryker to revisit a chapter of his life he thought forever closed.
Fortunately for his family, this transition was easier than he imagined – leading a simple life was never really in the cards for Stryker. In his heart, he always has been a warrior, but he now must battle for more than just king and country.
Confused by his connection to the cartel, Stryker sets off with little on his side but instincts and experience. As he attempts to connect the dots, Stryker infiltrates the deepest, darkest places of the organization’s stronghold and comes face to face with certain death.
In his every attempt to uncover the truth, Stryker’s plans are crushed by the cold-blooded cohort. His resolve to save his loved ones, however, becomes more firm with every failure.
Will his wits and training alone be enough to discover his connection to the cartel in time to save his family?

Wyatt Striker returns from Mexico and an attempt on his life. He finds his son kidnapped. But this doctor and ex-Navy Seal are not just going to follow directions on a silly ransom note. Wyatt creates his own plan to hunt down and take out everyone that has messed with his family. He will use all of his skills as an ER doctor and SEAL training to find out where his son is, why Wyatt is being targeted, stopping a drug cartel, and saving a senator. This story starts with and bang and doesn’t stop until the end. Wyatt is quick witted and had experience that helps him through this tangled maze. I love how his is willing to do whatever it takes to get to that next step. It’s not always pretty but it definitely has results. I really enjoyed how there is way more happening than you first see. If you are looking for an action packed thriller/mystery make sure to pick up this book. You will not be disappointed. Now I just hope Brent Rock Russell is quick to write the second book in this series. I received Caged Lightning for free from Elevate Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
