Wow! What a thrilling book! A thriller with a very clever assassin, but an even cleverer Delaney. I just couldn't put it down.
Loads of action and tense drama. Well worth a read – Ken Robson
A tense psychological thriller. Ex-special forces guy Mike's wife gets killed brutally, and he goes into a monastery to try and reconcile his life. But real life interferes, and he goes on the track of his wife's killer.
David Callinan has a winner here – J. Johnson
David Callinan absolutely rocked this. Mike Delaney is my new favorite hero.
Callinan has given readers a great ride – Robert Gill
David Callinan has written a taut, fast paced, page turner of a novel. It’s a non-stop thriller that features a villain on par with Dr. Lecter. In the vein of a Preston & Child 'Gideon Crew' novel.
My confession. This is a great read – Tammy Windsor
Callinan weaves a very intricate and addictive web of suspense that I found unable to resist or put down until the end. I can't wait to read what is in store for Delaney next.

Mike Delaney was a hard, take no prisoners type of guy – until his wife was murdered and their baby died with her. He had been nearly murdered in China while working as a cop; worked before that for a group that didn’t have a name and survived but Maria’s murder? That did him in. He left their house for a monastery high in the California hills, where he meditated, practiced Tai Chi and other arts until time came he had to do something else. Find the murderer of his wife. She had been a journalist with a home office he didn’t intrude on but, after the fire he had sense enough to move what was left of her computer and files somewhere else until the investigation was done. Until the public’s mind was distracted by the next big thing – The Priest. He took lovely young women, made them confess on tape to a myriad of sins and then put the tape in their mouths and killed them. His newest offerings had a cross cut into their backs. All clues and other disappearances somehow lead to a charity funder called LifeForce International but how? Mike risks everything to find out and, at the end, the surprise is his. You have to read this thriller! It never stops surprising and making you think you’ve got the answer when, in fact, you’ve got no clue at all!
