When I got this book and saw that author Michael Ledwidge has also written with James Patterson and has co-written his Michael Bennett series, I knew I would like this book. I am a huge fan of the Bennett series and got excited to read this novel. It did not disappoint. A thrilling novel from the very first page all the way to very end. The lead character of Michael Gannon is bad ass and you will not want to put this book down. It’s all action and one of the best books of its kind so far this year.
It’s another day on the water for Michael Gannon in the Bahamas. Not having a great day he’s ready to call it when he sees a Gulf Stream jet go down in the water. He tries to radio for help but his radio is broken. He goes to investigate the crash and see if there are any survivors (which there are not, just six dead men). He does find briefcases full of cash and diamonds. He takes them and leaves the scene. He hides them and bides his time as to what he will do with them. He figures he has a windfall now.
Soon he learns that what happened in the water is not what is being reported. Some kind of cover up is going on and Michael feels he needs to expose this. He goes to NY where he is going to do an interview along with Ruby, who is also aware of what happened there, with a reporter that does YouTube videos exposing truths (or rumored truths) of government falsehoods. While they are there, they are attacked and Gannon and Ruby barely escape with their lives.
Something big is going down and they need to get back to the Bahamas and get footage that Gannon shot that can expose this whole thing. When they get back the Feds are there and take them hostage and Gannon says he will get them the cash and diamonds. This plays into his hands. They don’t know who he is until it’s too late. There’s a hell of a lot more to him as they learn and now Gannon is offense and is going to save his friends and get to the bottom of what’s going on and expose the truth.
Hopefully there will be more adventures with Michael Gannon in the future. You can pick up Stop At Nothing in stores on Tuesday, March 3rd from Hanover/Harper Collins.
