* I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
Listeners were introduced to Greco in CROSSFIRE – Book One of the series. Greco is Mirissa’s protector and her trainer.
Not much is revealed about his background in the first book, but there are hints given that his childhood was anything but idyllic.
In fact, his mother treated him like an unwanted stray dog that she was stuck with. Her drinking only escalated the abuse and Greco has not seen or spoken to her in a very long time.
He is very private. He does not often tell people about the abuse he suffered at the hands if his mother. So, when word comes that Greco’s mother has been abducted, he is given the job of tracking her down.
“Ruthless mercenaries, inept crooks, and deeply buried secrets abound while Greco and Mirissa push their relationship to the brink in their search for answers.”
“In this novella sequel to Crossfire, the mysteries of Greco’s past are revealed, and his biggest mistake threatens to destroy his future.”
This audiobook is very well written and performed. I am glad that the author chose to use a male narrator to tell Greco’s story. I do not think it would have had the same impact if it was narrated by a woman.
David Dietz has the ability to pull his listeners into the story and to ensure that they keep listening. His pacing is perfect and his suspense building skills are second to none. I rate the narration as 5 out of 5 stars.
While the first book focused mostly on Mirissa and on building the plot, this book was much more personal. It does have a terrific mystery that must be solved, but it is the character development and the emotional aspects that make this audiobook a five star listening experience.
I rate this audiobook as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
