Have you been reading the Bruno Johnson series? If not, why not? This series centers on the heart of a man who can't stand to see a child abused in any way, shape, or form.

So he and his wife Marie kidnapped ten at-risk kids and took them out of the country to Costa Rica. Bruno and Marie found that they are going to add to their brood with one of their own. Idyllic life? Ask them and they will give you a resounding yes.

However, Bruno is faced with a problem from his past and must travel to Southern California to handle what has plagued him for a long time. He insists that Marie not accompany him, not wanting to jeopardize her pregnancy. But when she learns who is involved, she insists on joining him.

What happens next is for you to find out by reading this thriller. I guarantee you a very good read with exciting scenes, plus plenty of blood and gore. The Vanquished is the fourth in the series, which caught my interest on the very first page of the first one. It will be a very good day when I can pick up the fifth.
