The terrorist leader and financier Matt Jacobs has figured out a way to eliminate the President. He believes he has come up with the ultimate weapon and needs help in getting close enough to the president to use it. He is relying on John Cannon’s stature as a hero to help him carry it off by providing the entry into the Oval Office. When confronted by Matt, John finds himself walking the fine line of pretending to help Matt while trying to figure out a countermeasure to the plan.
The action begins with John fearing for his life. John is forced to run from his house to avoid a killer. Clearly, whoever is trying to get him has a mission to accomplish, and the elimination of John is at the top of the to-do list. One survival does not a story make and the quest to thrive takes John and his love, Stephanie from the beaches of Port Aransas to West Virginia and finally to Matt Jacob’s corporate headquarters at the Embarcadero Center in San Francisco. There John finally understands what he needs to do to protect Stephanie and him from further mayhem. He chooses a path that takes him to the ultimate test while jeopardizing those he loves.
The third book in the John J. Cannon Trilogy brings together two strong wills for a showdown. The question to be answered is who will feel the satisfaction that the achievement of justice delivers? John, Matt or neither? – Goodreads.com
With this book, we come to the conclusion of our unlikely hero’s adventure. It all started with John J. Cannon taking a leave of absence for a well-deserved rest and to spend some leisure time on his new boat. And he hasn’t had a moment of peace since.
As with the other books in this trilogy, the story moves along at a brisk pace and the action begins almost immediately. I especially enjoyed the dialogue between John and Ned and the dry humor interspersed along the way.
With this last installment, the author did justice to this suspenseful and thrilling series with a befitting and appropriate ending for John Cannon. It’s been an exciting, fun ride.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
