One person found this helpful. The third installment in his series follows Michael Beckett, a retired NYPD cop turned bodyguard, as he struggles to find and keep his footing in the celebrity bodyguard business. Beckett has a checkered past that is finally catching up to him. He and his fellow ex-cop friends are under investigation for their actions as vigilantes, two of his ex-girlfriends are out to wreck his life, and a serial killer is targeting one of his clients. The story is a high-octane thrill-ride through the tawdry lives of celebrities and the criminal underbelly of New York.
Partially based on Fitzsimmons own experiences, the novel will certainly undercut the glamor and poise of the celebrity world for readers. The novel also manages to avoid running off the rails, leaving readers with a tight, highly entertaining thriller. However, in the last few chapters, the novel runs out of steam, robbing readers of a truly electrifying climax to match the rest of the story.

The resolution feels ambiguous and rushed. The epilogue will leave readers grasping at loose threads, wondering how things wound down so quickly. My own biggest issue with the novel was its hyper-masculine tone. Almost all of the women in the novel are either mentally ill, airheaded, or evil.
About the Writer
Still, the novel kept me entertained right until the end. I was pleasantly surprised when it was so much better than even that other one! Thomas has the ability of really capturing the intrigue that you experience with each character. I found my fascinated with the concept of being a bodyguard as a whole. It makes you wonder did this really happen?
It adds to the suspense a little more when you start questioning things. There were moments of confusion for me. Sometimes I had to stop and go back to verify what a character's story was or even just snippets. Like Becketts choice of activities at any given moment. Throughout the whole story though I found myself rooting for Beckett. His connections through his previous career and life help him keep on a path to stop the bad guy and keep others safe.
Thomas did a fabulous job creating Becketts character into something believable and yet jaded at times. You just want to cheer him on but also fear him. Along with Beckett is a string of supporting characters that round out a story that is equally, intriguing, fascinating, witty, sexy, frustrating, and heart pounding. In my opinion, this should be on your to read list today! Any good author can write a book with in a series that can be read as a standalone. I think Thomas was really successful in that. This is the first book I have read from Fitzsimmons and I expect to read more of his work after this one.
The book brings out the highlights and, in some cases, the low-lights of the city-life. I strongly recommend this book for someone that likes intrigue, suspense, and action.

See all 57 reviews. Not surprisingly, his protagonist, Michael Beckett, has a similar background, which also includes acting on tv, the fictional aspect having Beckett portray — what else? The action is disturbingly realistic, portraying the dope dealers, pimps, corruption, bad cops, and poverty rampant in such sections of almost any large city in the country, and the dedication of most members of the police force who try to make them safe and livable. When a hugely wealthy real estate mogul has plans for a large section of real estate, forcible evictions are only part of his modus operandi, and the fact that the mayor, the police commissioner and some of the cops are in his pocket makes matters that much easier for him.
As noted, this was the first of many books, fiction and otherwise, by this author, and that fact is reflected in the somewhat unpolished writing. But ultimately the gripping realism of the tale won out. The book was a fast, suspenseful read, and is recommended. The author has re-released the novel now under its original title.
