Review from Booklist

An old girlfriend's request to find her missing brother lands PI Nicholas Colt in a plot hatched by neo-Nazi cult Chain of Life, which engineered the plane crash that killed his wife and daughter and the rest of his award-winning band years earlier. As the investigation leads to the Harvest Angels, the enforcement arm of the cult, Colt puts his new family in deadly peril before he’s kidnapped by an old nemesis who brainwashes him and hooks him on heroin as part of a plan intended to kill millions. The high standard set for this series by Colt’s introduction in Pocket-47 (2011) is generally maintained here, along with plenty of backstory, although the plot loses some suspense when Colt manages to break free with surprising ease well before all loose ends are tied. Still, Colt is a physical, no-holds-barred protagonist in the Jack Reacher mold, and this time he’s left with work to do to mend body, mind, and marriage. Another good bet for fans of hard-boiled fiction. — Michele Leber
