keep pregnant Marie out of the crossfire Ultimately, Bruno s inability to ignore a woman in peril yields unspeakable consequences My takeA fourth reading outing for me with Dave Putnam and Bruno Johnson and if I m being totally honest, probably my least favourite of the bunch Still an enjoyable read with lots of positives, but I think my reading association with the main character might be drawing to an end.Bruno, Marie and their extended family the kids they rescued a few years ago are making a life for themselves down in Costa Rica still personas non grata and outlaws as far as the US authorities are concerned Bruno and Marie get sucked back yet again to the States, imperilling their freedom in order to resolve some differences with biker gang The Sons of Satan a nemesis from previous books and an ongoing thorn in their collective sides.Back in the US, Bruno has an unwelcome reconnection with an old flame, Sonja from his days on the force many years ago His former colleague and lover gets in touch out of the blue and causes a slight blip in spousal relationships between Marie and Bruno Marie s a bit of a jealous type.Sonja is now involved with another biker gang The Visigoths and needs some help from Bruno One thing leads to another, then another and before too long Bruno is caught up in problems far removed from those he thought he was returning to the States to resolve.Bikers, law enforcement, family, pregnancy, old flames, children, criminality, violence, a highway altercation with deadly consequences, TV footage, bikers, a fatality, stolen weapons and a lot besides.I like Bruno as a character, I like his decency, his ability to look after himself, the care he has for his children and Sonia and his father, his striving to do the right thing and not run from a confrontation or a difficult choice He does seem to be a shit magnet though, which I suppose makes him such an interesting character to read about.I felt a sense of deja vous here, with Bruno returning to fight his battles back in the US the third book in a row that this has happened after his involuntary exile to Costa Rica It was one trip too many in my eyes and I kind of wished he could have something to sort out on his own patch now.The plot if I m being uber critical did seem to rely on a bit of suspension of disbelief and made use of a couple of unlikely coincidences to move things along in my opinion anyway.I did like large portions of the book, especially the early narrative where Bruno and Sonja work together and their shared experiences and developing relationship, before it all fractured I enjoy reading about Bruno when he spends time with his kids and with Marie I like the banter and the conversations and their obvious affection for each other Similarly, there are some well written confrontations and action scenes something Putnam excels at.A fast read and a bit of a page turner and while reading I was fully involved in finding out how the latest scrape would resolve itself, but a few niggles.Overall score 3 from 5 originally a 4 something which in hindsight seems a tad high David Putnam has his website heretps
