I acquired several David Morrell books after mentioning to a friend that I enjoyed his writing … kind of David Baldacci meets Dan Brown. In this book Drew MacLane is a man with a past who is trying to atone by becoming a hermit in a monastery. As with all “men with a past” no matter where you hide it eventually catches up with you. Drew is no different, so when the monks are all killed and Drew survives thanks to his pet mouse his mission starts. The book takes us on twists and turns, introduces us to a secret brotherhood of assassin priests and tells us the story of Drew’s past. It was a good escape read.
