Targets Down by Bob HamerIf the degenerates knew that the lady who witnessed them dumping a body was the wife of a FBI agent, they would have thought twice before leaving her for dead on the mountain overpass, because now Matt Hogan is on the case.
Matt Hogan's job requires him to become like the slime he's working to put behind bars. The undercover FBI agent finds himself living life on the edges of a branch of the Russian Mafia--a neo-Nazi group involved with all sorts of illegal enterprise including the sex-slave industry.
When his "in" is murdered, Hogan wonders if his cover is blown before he even gets started. Surviving so many close calls during this operation have him seriously considering that the God his wife puts her faith in might be real after all.
An excellent read, this book was clearly written with the male reader in mind. It is fast paced and action driven. It is clear that this author, a retired undercover FBI agent himself, knows what he is talking about. The undercover situation has a truly authentic feel I didn't know was missing from other similar novels until reading this one.
One thing to note: There is a bit more of the marriage relationship described between the agent and his wife than is typical in Christian novels. Nothing too over the top, but enough that I won't let my 15-year-old daughter read it.
I give this book 5 stars.
