Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

At the end of HOLD ON! Season One, Brandon was convicted in a military Court Martial at Fort Bragg and sent to Leavenworth. It’s now two years later, and he has escaped with the help of his brother Tyler. With Brandon safe at the Aspen cabin, recovering from a gunshot, Tyler picks up Belinda Reese before the CIA can get to her. Now they must wait until Brandon has recovered enough to go in search of their sister, Emily. Meanwhile Emily has left the convent and became entangled in a white slavery outfit, where she’s to be sold to the highest bidder. Brandon, Tyler, and Belinda head for L.A. to rescue her, while the CIA is in pursuit, and closing in on them.

Brandon is still trying to control his alter ego, The Scorpion, but the beast is hard to tame. It may be best to let the beast loose, as they are up against a vicious Chinese Tong in California who kill wantonly.

Season Two continues the fast paced action as the first, also ending in a cliffhanger, to be concluded in Season Three, “Run!”, out soon. The writing is smooth and easy reading, with a good plot and characters. I was disappointed in the amount of profanity in the novel, and felt it wasn’t needed to tell a good story. But for readers looking for an action-filled novel, I can highly recommend this cliffhanger series. Just be warned, it doesn’t conclude until Season Three.
