This is the first book in the "Discarded Heroes Series" and what a great way to begin a series! It is all about being a part of a black-ops group of men known as Nightshade. These men handle rescues that no one else will take and that no one will even know who these men are.
In this story Max Jacobs, a former Navy SEAL man joins the team while he is trying to come to grips with his war-related PTSD and trying to not fall completely apart while his wife Sydney files for a divorce. Max must learn to get his anger under control and save his marriage. When the team goes into the jungle to rescue a missionary family from the rebels you will feel as if you are there. You will experience the sorrow that happens, the suspense as they flee and hide in the jungle and cheer on the team that watches out for each other. But in the process of trying to keep their identities unknown, Max's wife Sydney, becomes part of the problem, as she does her job as a reporter and tries to discover who these guys are. It was one of those stories that was hard to put down and at times I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I look forward to reading the next story in this series. It has a good blend of suspense, action, love and learning how to let go and let God have control.
