After enforcer Richard “Rico” Sanders stepped in to protect his girlfriend from a local mob boss’s hot-headed nephew, all hell broke loose.
When the smoke cleared, the nephew had vanished, but three goons who had tried to help him lay dying where they’d stood. Fighting for his life, Rico was alive but gravely wounded.
Out of the hospital but not fully recovered, he needed a place to crash – a place where he wouldn’t be found by men who surely would be looking. A place like the cabin owned by lawyer Paul Elliott, whose life Rico had saved more than once. Trouble was, Paul’s girlfriend hadn’t forgotten Rico’s dark history. Or Paul’s fascination with him.
Using Rico’s girlfriend as bait, vengeful killers soon would be coming for him. The only question was whether he would face them alone or with help from Paul.
Rico Stays by Ed Duncan is by far a great thriller. It’s a combination of The Jason Bourne Series and The Godfather in some ways. Action-packed crime fiction-this is a must a read! I liked the twist plots and the edge-of-your seat suspense. I never what the main character, Rico, would get himself into next. Deadly, intriguing, and satisfying-Ed Duncan caught my attention with this latest book. There were plenty of times, I didn’t think Rico would make it alive. He’s like a cat with nine lives. As a reader, I just never knew when the final moment would come, if ever. Rico is a bad-ass kind of guy. He knows how to use his weapons and use them well. He has his own rules of what makes someone bad or good. Rico rids the world of the bad guys. Overall, I enjoyed reading this fast-paced tale. Ed Duncan proved once again that he writes well-crafted fiction.
