The deadly hunt continues in book two of the best-selling Trackers saga.

Five days ago North Korea detonated three nuclear warheads over the United States, triggering an electromagnetic pulse that crippled the country. A second attack destroyed the nerve center of America in a nuclear blast that flattened the nation's capitol. As the government falls apart in the aftermath, the survivors must decide how far they will go to save the ones they love. Police Chief Marcus Colton has struggled to maintain order in the isolated mountain town of Estes Park, Colorado, with the help of expert tracker Raven Spears and stranded pilot Major Nathan Sardetti. Together, they fought the evil terrorizing the town - but new threats are rising, and old rivalries are coming to a head. Charlize Montgomery, newly promoted to Secretary of Defense, is caught between loyalty to her country and love for her son, Ty. When the marines sent to find Ty in Colorado discover a scene of unspeakable carnage, the straightforward rescue mission turns into a deadly chase as the hunters become the hunted.

Fresh from having saved the town and their families from serial killers in the small town of Estes Park, Raven and Nathan find themselves on the move to find Nathan’s handicapped nephew, Ty.  Still plagued by radiation, thugs on the road and other dangers, both head off to Ty’s last known location.  While the US is recovering from the devastating EMP attack, others are ready to take advantage of the chaos.

Ty’s mother, the new Secretary of Defense is trying to find the last North Korean sub and also to save the rest of the US and her son from the newest homegrown terrorist – General Phoenix.   Together, Raven and Nathan hunt down General Phoenix and set into motion a deadly and a fight to the death.

Action packed, this second in the Trackers series is mesmerizing.  Nicholas Sansbury Smith has a gift for blending fact with fiction and creating a horrifying story.  A story that will keep one up for nights because the monsters he creates are people we very well may know in real life!  People who make headlines daily but who fail because there is no chaos – yet!

I have had the pleasure of enjoying several of Smiths books, this series, however, is far more frightening than any of his others.  He knows how to take terror and grow it, cultivating it until his readers cannot stop listening to his books – they know his horror can happen!

Well written with a shocking twist that will leave you gasping – I had to wait a couple of days to write this review because I was in shock and mostly angry at Smith!  I won’t say anymore but like life, a writer can be so unfair!

Once again Bronson Pinchot owns this book!  His talent of presenting each character with a voice that one can only love or hate; he nails each one perfectly!  I hate the voices of the President and General Phoenix – they are grating and “holier than thou” type voices thus gearing the audience to hate the men and appropriately so. While Raven, Nathan and Chief Colton are solid husky voices that demonstrates strength and stability – you cannot help but feel a strong connection to them and grow to love them.

Don’t miss out on this awesome series.
