The Raid by Steven Konkoly is the second book in the Ryan Decker series While this book worked as a standalone novel I feel that it would have been better to have read the series in order There are references back to events that occurred in the first bookThis action thriller is well written Senator Steele asks Ryan and the team to take on an “off the books” mission along the US Mexican border that involves drug cartels and unscrupulous people in the US governmentThe story takes us from California to the border with Mexico to Colorado to Washington D C but most of it takes place along the border It is exactly what you would expect from an action thriller with lots of concern over who can be trusted as well as plenty of information on weapons and covert gearThere are a few twists to the story but nothing that was too hard to deduce There is a little character development but I did not get a significant sense of what the main characters would be like in their down time outside of missions Nonetheless it was so full of action and excitement that it kept me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next I was fully engaged in the mission becoming a successWhat is going on at the border What are the cartels up to and why are some elements of the US government providing support to one or of them Who is masterminding the efforts I recommend this book to those that like thrillers with a lot of action Thanks to Netgalley Thomas Mercer and Steven Konkoly for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This did not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review

This book will be available October 8 2019 Just know that it is a kick butt and ask uestions later type of storyUpfront information This is the second book in the series I highly recommend reading the first book so that you get a better background on the situations and characters There is violence as well as adult language and mild mention of abuse A border patrol stumbles onto an unclear situation and things go crazy before they can make a full report After learning the available information Senator Steele reuests Ryan and Harlow's assistance in investigating the situation What no one knew was the dangers involved Now with their lives at risk again will they be able to solve the mystery and have everyone come back aliveThis book had plenty of twists turns and unexpected events to keep me turning the virtual pages Disclaimer I was provided an advance copy of this book courtesy of Thomas and Mercer via NetGalley I voluntarily read and above are my honest thoughts

CHARACTERS ñ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Steven Konkoly

The RaidLizes they’ve stumbled onto something far dangerous than any of them understoodThe cover up is rooted deep in the Department of Defense itself Fearful for their own lives and unable to trust anyone outside their small circle of skilled associates Decker and Harlow set in motion a risky plan to stop a criminal conspiracy. First of all I would like to thank #ThomasandMercer and #Netgalley for giving me this opportunity to read Steven Konkolys second book about Ryan Decker This is a good story that concludes some of the stuff that started in the first book Konkoly also promise in the afterword that he is working on an even better third installment in the series Great news since I was really hooked by this character from the start I really love that they have a different ground theme than most thrillers with military connections today I think there are not enough books about trafficking and environment issues today Most are still stuck on terrorism and russians Don't get me wrong those are also problems I recommend this series
