I have read several of his books and only found one I did not care for and that was"We are coming". This book does not read like his other books and I wish I had not wasted my money on the next one that follows this one. Very disapointed.
In the summer of 1941, Sergeant Dan McGill did the unthinkable, something no Chicago cop was ever supposed to do. He refused to go on the Mob’s payroll. Refused to become one of organized crime’s stooges in blue. If the Mob let something like that go unchallenged, it’d be the end of them.
So McGill had to go. Six feet under. Only the Mob made a serious mistake. The boss decided Charlie Hart, Dan’s best friend and the crooked police lieutenant who’d been given the task of roping Dan in, had to die, too. That was the price Charlie had to pay for failing to make Dan knuckle under.
The Mob got Charlie, all right, but then Dan struck back. He killed the boss’s two sons and then the old man himself. He caught the boss just as he was about to blow town — with $3 million stuffed into two suitcases. Finders keepers, Dan thought after putting the boss down. He took the Mob’s money after all.
From that moment on, a hunt began that would last four years. The mob would stalk its target throughout the United States and all the way into war-torn Europe after learning that Dan, now calling himself Charlie Hart, had joined the army. The boys in Chicago figured if they didn’t kill the bastard, the Nazis would get the job done.
Very disappointed in this book as the James McGill were so good. This is slow and boring. Won’t be reading further in this storyline.
Great prequel to the Jim McGill story. McGill is a tough guy, fair where deserved, and hellfire on really bad guys. He’s what Captain America would be without the magic shield and supernormal athletic moves.can’t wait to begin Cohort 1.
Didn't know where this one was going! Finally realized this good guy was going to outsmart them all! So far, second book is even better!!
Haven’t read a mob themed book in a long time. I forgot how ruthless they could be. I felt like the end just dropped the reader in a hole. Guess I will have to read the next one to learn the rest of the story.
Love "Charlie Hart" aka Dan McGill he is intelligent honest loyal and very trustworthy hope he is successful in the Army and against the Mafia
Once again Mr. Flynn has written a book that you can’t stop reading. If you do put it down, it keeps calling to be picked up. The characters are real and the action sequences are believable.
Love these books by Flynn. The background on Chicago PD, the U.S. in the early 40's and the overall written descriptions are really great. As the book ends we are at war and McGill is in the army. Pick up this book and the others in the series, beautifully written and well worth your reading.
