Another school shooting.
Another senseless act of violence.
But this one is different.
It isn’t random. It was orchestrated by a mysterious outsider.
And it’s just the beginning.
“This is Shea at his absolute best.”
The warning was released soon after the first school shooting. It came from an untraceable source, and threatened a similar violent incident at one school in each state across the country. Soon the entire nation is plunged into a state of panic.
As law enforcement desperately searches for the group responsible, former FBI agent Nick Lawrence is called up by an old friend. They need Nick’s unique set of skills to find and stop a twisted criminal mastermind...before he claims his next victims.
When a senator's daughter is found dead in a Boston alleyway, former FBI agent Nick Lawrence is called into action.
A powerful new drug has hit the streets of Massachusetts, and overdoses are skyrocketing to epidemic proportions. Senator Buzz Litchfield’s daughter is the latest opioid death, and he wants justice. Law enforcement is being told to take the gloves off; to come down hard on the rampant drug rings that have plagued the area.
Nick Lawrence and the Valhalla Group are tasked with taking down the distribution network, and must partner with Boston’s elite Tactical Narcotics Team to get the job done.
But just as they’re about to make a bust, things go south. And Nick realizes that in the war on drugs, corruption is everywhere. And nothing is what it seems…
BRIAN SHEA has served as both a military officer and law enforcement Detective. His authentic crime fiction novels have been enjoyed by countless readers around the world. His books are recommended for readers who enjoy Michael Connolly’s Harry Bosch, David Baldacci’s John Puller, or James Patterson’s Alex Cross.

On the one hand, the plots of books 4 and 5 (TARGETED VIOLENCE, MURDER 8) strike me as being a bit all over the place. Nick Lawrence ends up in a deep cover, off-the-book wetwork crew, but ends up handling plots that would definitely be within the wheelhouse of conventional law enforcement investigations. I suppose what makes the task force more efficient would be that they don't need warrants and can conduct interrogations and surveillance that would violate every principle of due process. I'd expect such a task force to be focused on international terrorism. There's also the problematic characterization that bullied people are prone to becoming school shooters. Plenty of bullied teenagers who end up hurting themselves rather than others. It's not the guaranteed conduit it seems to be in TARGETED VIOLENCE.
At the same time...the characters continue to be compelling, and the action crisp and compelling the reader to turn the page.
I don't regret reading the series, and it did what it set out to do (entertain). I might check out Shea's other works down the road. He has definitely improved as a writer from the time of KILL LIST, and as far as the flaws of his first three books, books 4 and 5 were the ones that demonstrated those pitfalls the least.
Each has felt the effect on their life, family and friends. Respect and support well is deserved!
