Review: Ares Road (Jake Caldwell) by James L Weaver


About the book


With his days as a mob enforcer behind him, Jake Caldwell’s trying to go straight.

But it seems his past won’t let him go.

His first job working as a private investigator turns up a teenage girl screaming down a dead man’s cell phone, and Logan, his mentor and the only man with answers, beaten into a coma.

Now Jake’s taking it personally.

The only clues Jake has to unravel the mystery are a Russian with a stolen, silver briefcase and three names: Snell, Parley and Ares. Teaming up with his best friend Bear, the Sheriff of his home town, and an attractive FBI agent, Jake quickly discovers they’re not the only ones looking for the briefcase and its deadly contents.

It’s no longer about seeking revenge.

In this “riveting” second book of the Jake Caldwell series, “the stakes are even higher” leading to a heart-stopping ride that won’t disappoint fans.


My thoughts


Well, here is a book that is just as good as the first (I don’t often get to say that!)

Full of action, Ares Road takes up several months after the events of Poor Boy Road. Jake can’t believe his luck. He has a family, old friends and a new job. But his training case turns out to be more than anyone expected.

Areas Road brings back old friends and introduces new ones. Jake is discovering more about himself and what drives him, when fate gives him a choice he can’t back away from. That haunting scream over the phone. As we have come to expect, Jake is not about to let that go.

James L. Weaver kicks up the pace with a forceful story full of action and suspense (along with a dash of humour). We discover more about Jake, and hey… I love Bear! A great book two. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
