Joshua has a bright future ahead until the night he hits a stranger in the middle of the road. If only the guy would’ve been killed on impact.
Circumstances cause the teenager to cover-up the accident. But did he leave something behind?
Being at the wrong place at the wrong time quickly escalates into a fight for their lives as Joshua and his single-mom Karen are drawn into a life-or-death situation as their path crosses that of a pair of criminals on the run. How far is Karen willing to go to protect her son?
The pace of this story moved rapidly along like an action movie. The plot was a little far-fetched at times, but it is fiction, so I overlooked it. The descriptive writing was on point. The characters were well developed, ranging from sympathetic do-gooders to a downright evil monster. I even felt a bit of sympathy for one of the “bad guys.” And sometimes there’s a fine line between the good guys and the bad guys.
Overall, I enjoyed this page-turner, although it had a little too much foul language for my tastes. There was a bit of goriness too. I suggest a mature reader.
I give this book four* stars (with an asterisk for language and content.)
