BOOK REVIEW: THE BLADE ITSELF
Life is good for Danny Carter until an old buddy from the past sends Dannyís life spinning in a whirlwind that just will not quit.
Danny has a successful job in construction. He lives with Karen the love of his life. He has put his life of crime behind him or so he thinks. Then Evan is released from jail and Dannyís life is thrown into a turmoil from which he cannot recover without casualties along the way.
Evan went crazy with a gun during the robbery of a pawnshop. The owner and a girl were badly injured. Danny was able to escape but Evan was caught and tried. Evan did his time without involving Danny but now he wants to be paid back. Agreeing to Evanís plan will put everything and everyone Danny holds dear in jeopardy. Danny figures out several different ways of handling the situation but none seem to work out. Finally, Danny is forced to sacrifice everything to deal with a very bad situation.
The Blade Itself is a very exciting book and one that you will want to read cover to cover without interruption. Marcus Sakey is able to describe his characters in such a way that you feel you are personally acquainted with each one of them.
