This is part 2 and it's better than part 1. The introduction of the gangsters and the X girlfriend have set up major problems for Jack Turner. It's pretty funny too.

Review by: Jenny Eagle on Feb. 28, 2018 :
The thing I liked most about this is I can easily imagine these people are like my craziest friends but only in more extreme situations. The action is totally reckless. It takes you over the edge of crime and violence, but the bonds of friendship and love are strong.

Review by: Jack Parker on Feb. 25, 2018 :
This story gripped me and would not let go. After part 1, I read part 2 in a few hours. I could not put it down. The cool thing is that its about a Coast Guard / DEA task force and they track down and bust drug smugglers, but the main characters are two regular guys and a girl, so it's easy to follow and funny. The author has a point of view that is enjoyable to read and follow. The action is intense and there a romantic part to the story.

Review by: PaulS972 on Feb. 20, 2018 :
I read part 1 and 2 in about 3-days, it's that fast of a read. The action and the likeability for the main character (Jack Turner) kept me totally engaged. This author really knows how to write. It's a bloody good story. Now I'm waiting for part 3.

This story picks right up where the first book left off. It keeps the high energy and funny plot going with the same characters. I can't wait to read part 3.
