H. Terrell Griffin's Mortal Dilemma brings Matt Royal back to the printed page. Maybe you're like me and don't like him gone for any length of time. Prepare yourself for a thrilling read.

While Matt is playing host to his psychologically damaged school friend, Jock Algren, the love of his life, Longboat Key Detective J. D. Duncan, is being run off the road and shot at. Fortunately, her aim is better than her assailant's.

Jock feels he can no longer carry out his assignments for a United States government intelligence agency. But repercussions from his job are not finished with him. Both Matt and J.D. find themselves targets of Jock's extermination orders.

I felt as if there was not a page going by without a near catastrophe involving J.D and Matt. Jock's targets want Jock to suffer as they did when he was forced to kill their loved ones. Revenge is the key here.

I cannot begin to outline the story line for Mortal Dilemma. Too complicated but also easy to follow. My main concern throughout the whole book was the safety of the main characters. They sure do live dangerous and interesting lives, to say the least.

Mortal Dilemma. Don't miss it. A real treat from an author who knows what he's doing, and does it well.
