There is no code Elroy Coffin can't break, nothing he can't hack, no safe he can't get into. But for the past two years, he's been incarcerated in a maximum-security hellhole after a job gone bad, driven to near-madness by the revelation of his beloved wife's murder.
Now a powerful and mysterious visitor who calls herself a "concerned citizen" offers Elroy his freedom if he'll do another job, and sweetens the deal with proof that his wife might still be alive. All Elroy has to do is hack into one of the most complicated and deadliest security grids in the world - clear and simple instructions for the best in the business. Or so he thinks.
Quickly drawn into the epicenter of a secret, brutal war between criminal masterminds, Elroy is forced to run for his life through a rapid-fire labyrinth of deception, betrayal, and intrigue - where no one is to be trusted and every fight could be his last ... and the real truth hidden beneath the myriad levels of treachery may be too shocking to comprehend ...
I'm a fan of "guy" movies like The Expendables and the Die Hard series. The action-packed scenes are exciting to watch and bond the hubs and me. Resurrection Express reads like an action-packed movie complete with deception, foul language and a one-sided plot line.
Yep! I don't find this story very balanced. There's a LOT in it that guys would love ... but what about the women? Yes, I enjoy some "guy" movies, but I sure don't want to read them. It may seem a little contradictory, but that's who I am. I watch the movies to spend time with the hubs and I wind up enjoying some of them. When I read a book it's a solitary act that I want to enjoy. Sorry to say, I did not enjoy this book. Perhaps if it had been a movie instead of a book, I'd have enjoyed it more ... heck, even the hubs would've watched this one.
