"Former Army Ranger and thief Van Shaw is thrust into danger as lethal and unpredictable as the war he left behind in this emotionally powerful and gritty follow up to the acclaimed Past Crimes. When an old crony of Van Shaw's late grandfather calls in a favor, the recently-discharged Ranger embarks on a dangerous journey to the Olympic Mountains, in search of a missing girl tied to Van's own criminal past. What he finds instead is a brutal murder scene, including a victim from one of Seattle's most influential families.But the dead bodies are only the start of Van's troubles. A fellow Ranger from Afghanistan turns up at Van's doorstep, seeking support from his former sergeant even as Van wrestles with his own reemerging symptoms of PTSD. The murder investigation leads to heavy pressure, with a billionaire businessman on one side and vicious gangsters on the other, each willing to play dirty to get what they want. The price of his survival may be too high, demanding moral compromises that could destroy Van's relationship with his iron-willed girlfriend, Luce. And when a trusted friend's betrayal pushes him to the edge, Van has to enlist help from some unexpected places--including someone he believed was lost forever.The Ranger will need every ally he can get. A powerful, unseen player is about to unleash a firestorm on Seattle that will burn Van and his people to ashes--and it will take a miracle to stop it"--… (mais)

This was such a fast read, and in some ways, it absolutely lived up to the first book in the series, which I adored. In some other ways, I was hoping for more, I admit.

Hamilton created such a great character in Van Shaw--he drew me into the first book from page 1, and kept me hooked. Although he was part of what kept me involved with this second installment, though, I guess I wanted more development, and instead he felt pretty unchanged. I don't want to say he was flat, because he felt real and complex, but I guess I wanted to see him more affected, or at least at some point struggling on more than a superficial level. As with the first book, I loved the glimpses back into his past, and when it came to character, those were the best parts of the book.

But all that said, the plotting and the storyline were great here, as before, and they kept me engaged. If anything, there might have been one twist too many because it moved so incredibly quickly, but it was an action-packed ride that I couldn't put down, so I really can't complain on this front.

All told, there's no doubt that I'll continue with the series, and absolutely recommend it to others. ( )

This book by Hamilton is a continuation of stories about Van Shaw. This is my first experience with Van Shaw and I liked what I saw. From a diverse background of the main character the mystery flows from one unforeseen event to another, making you keep reading to find out what is going to happen next. Enjoyed the many characters, and they are characters. Received from Goodreads giveaways and for this book I am happy.
