When war veteran Jake Wolfe accidentally takes his picture during a murder, The Artist adds Jake to his kill list and he becomes a target in a deadly game of cat and mouse that only one of them can survive.

I received this book to give an honest review.
I have to say this was a pretty long book though it was full of humor and lots of action.
Jake is an ex-marine well I say ex but once a marine always a marine in my eye. He is a photojournalist and from time to time helps out the law enforcement with tips. His best friend Terrell is on the force and the humor them two have is quite funny.
Though Jake will find himself in a predicament and running from the law when an assassin has it out for him and certain people, . Along the way he will find a friend with a dog named Cody and will possibly find romance.
It will be a fight to the death with this assassin and only one will survive. Though if the assassin dies who all dies with him?
The book turned out to be pretty good, for me there was never anything dull it was a steady action plot. As far as characters go I really liked them all and found them to be developed.
