"We shrug our shoulders and pretend we have no choice. However, we are wrong, and unless we stand against the evil, it will consume us."
Lonnie Bowers is facing the bitterness of life with a failed marriage, a once successful rodeo career that was now succumbing, a battered ego, and empty bank accounts. Right when Lonnie believes his life can't get any worse, it does. His closest friend and travel partner, Brian Besser, gets kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel. Putting his life at stake, it is up to Lonnie to fight for what is right. One wrong move could be the end of his life and many others. Lonnie must make it into Mexico without getting recognized and save his best friend before it's too late.
This book is truly an inspiration for those who refuse to stay silent against the injustice of the world. It encourages us to fight against evil and stand up for what's right. It is a motivation to not give up even in the darkest of hours. It shows how life is not always easy; it's filled with ups and downs. However, with the correct mindset and companions, you can always find a light at the end of the tunnel. Some of the obstacles faced by Lonnie might be relatable to many readers, which is hard to find in many books. Besides that, the character and plot development were also quite impressive.
However, I couldn't help but feel that the last few parts of the book were a bit lacking in terms of delivery. The final part of the book takes place in just a few days, making it filled with too much action and then sudden grief. Another way to make the story even more appealing would be to work more on the physical description of the characters. Doing so would create further and deeper bonding with the characters.
Viewing all aspects, including plot, character development, and delivery, I rate this book a solid three out of four starsThe book was immersive and engaging and was worth a read. Furthermore, I found the book emotional and relatable in certain aspects of our daily lives.
David Griffith's book Blackwater crossing is a roller coaster of suspense, keeping the readers on edge till the very end. It is the perfect book for fans of suspense and mystery. This book is recommended for teenagers and young adults as it's filled with action.
