Behind every corporate takeover executives pull levers this way and that, squeezing the last profitable nickel out of the deal. But no one knows the true intent of every corporate takeover. No one knows the secret bonds that exist.
An Indian technology giant swallows up another private company that has deep roots in North Texas. For one unassuming man the thought of layoffs, of losing his own job to a bunch of arrogant assholes feels like a kick to the jewels. Until the day Michael’s life changes forever.
Perverse alliances. An affair of the heart. A grisly murder. A spiraling string of events thrusts Michael into a life-or-death fight to save a tortured soul and hunt down a brutal killer…one who lurks closer than he ever imagined.
Greed knows no boundaries.
In the beginning, I almost felt like it was slow because I didn’t know what was going on, there wasn’t much action. I felt like the beginning was really more of a background description of sorts but quickly, I learned about the players of the game and figured there was something ‘fishy’ going on.
I wasn’t sure what the players were up to exactly, but that kept me turning the pages.
This book isn’t a mystery because you know who the game players are and you know their master plan, but you don’t have quite all the details and things happen that you think you know whats what and who is who, but you aren’t 100% sure. It was quite suspenseful.
I caught myself cheering for certain people in the game and definitely feel like this book is just the beginning of what’s left to come. (I don’t read the previews of books I’m reading so I really didn’t know what this was about or what the upcoming books are about. I like being surprised.)
I think the things we found out in book 1 will really start to develop and unfold in the remaining books.
I enjoyed reading this book and was actually upset that I had to pick up another book between this one and the second one in the series.

No one knows the secret bonds that exist.
An Indian technology giant swallows up another private company that has deep roots in North Texas. For one unassuming man the thought of layoffs, of losing his own job to a bunch of arrogant assholes feels like a kick to the jewels.
Until the day Michael’s life changes forever.
Perverse alliances. A gruesome murder. An affair of the heart. A spiraling string of events thrusts Michael into a life-or-death fight to save a tortured soul and hunt down a brutal killer…one who lurks closer than he ever imagined.
Seduced by an insatiable urge to escape reality, North Texas teens are falling prey to the one weakness parents fear most about their kids—taking illicit drugs. More than a thousand miles away, two contemptible hooligans plot their path to the top of an emerging start-up company. But what will it cost them?
With his city under siege by a series of drug deaths and a kidnapping, Michael and those closest to him are sucked into a twister so toxic and destructive, no one will be the same in its wake.
From the jagged mountains and alluring beaches of Mexico to the suburban concrete jungle in North Texas, Michael defends an entire drug-ravaged generation against ruthless killers who attack on every front possible. And just when you think the dragon has been sleighed, a vile act of cruelty threatens to shred his family.
A sick, twisted email lands at journalism outlets across the south, referencing innocent little animals and primal urges, Hollywood movie stars and women of a certain ilk, tearing flesh from bone. The haunting note tests Michael’s over-protective nature, and he questions if it’s just a prank from a sheltered computer geek, or a prophetic sign of a future heinous act.
A shadow of death swallows up one beautiful young lady after another…and no one can stop it. But what force is behind this string of sadistic killings, pulling the strings, toying with pretty girls who want nothing more than to meet Mr. Right? As Michael and his band of brothers (and sister) track a series of bizarre murders in southern college towns—slowly piecing together what the FBI can’t—a ruthless monster strikes close to home.
When blood pours from the soul you love, the pain isn’t of this world.
In the end, lives will be forever changed. And one will not survive.
