Captain Kramer, USMC and Corporal Shadow, USMC soon find themselves in their deadliest fight ever.
You Can Run
U.S. Marines, Capt. Kramer and his dog Sgt. Shadow survive hell in Afghanistan — but worse awaits them back home. YOU CAN RUN is not your average crime thriller. Full of crime, absolutely! A thrilling ride, most definitely! But Greg Smith takes it up a couple of notches, pulls you, the reader, into a dangerous, action-packed FBI operation. You enter the world of 2 U.S. Marines who offer their services to bring down a diabolical kingpin.
Kramer and Shadow take on a new team member when their nemesis, Shelley Harper, surfaces with plans to exact retribution from America on a monumental scale that will have 9/11 pale in comparison. People on all sides have their own scores to settle. Who will be left standing after the dust settles? In LEX TALIONIS Greg Smith has written a strong story with an intriguing premise; one that can easily become all too real in this day and age.
If you have read the previous Kramer and Shadow books you are in for a sequel to the thrill ride. But if not, this book [Lex Talionis] will stand on its own as the author skillfully weaves in information from the previous book series to craft a tight plot line with enough believable plot twists and turns to keep you deeply engaged.
With this book Mr. Smith has taken his craft to a new level and defines what being a hero truly is
even as he deftly reveals our hero to being all to human, not an easy feat for an author. Bravo.
