The beginning of the book is filled with rage and hatred towards a man who seems to have it all. Nothing seems to touch Phillip Gregory and everything turns to gold for him. Wilfred is seething with anger as he finds out that Phillip is happily married to someone he once had feelings for. The story is fast paced and the absolute jealousy of one man will cause havoc on many.

I loved having some of the characters from previous books in the story make an appearance in this one. It is always interesting to read how the characters grew, became adults and prospered in their lives. When greed and pride raise their ugly head in this story it is one that reaches far into many lives. I had chills as I read how Wilfred could not shake his contempt for Phillip and was determined to see him suffer.

Chad seems to have the perfect life. He is married to Caroline and is blessed with wonderful children. The company is going well and he feels on top of the world. Little does he know that everything is about to change. Something is happening with the company and the fear is money has been laundered without their knowledge that puts everyone at risk. I loved the quick action taken to protect the family. You could feel the tension in the air as plans were made to find out who was trying to sabotage the company.

The action really starts when a kidnapping takes place. Changing cars with a family member causes one person to be taken mistakenly. Will the family be able to save this person? Who is willing to do anything to take the family and its company down? The story is filled with edge of your seat intensity and thrills you see in a movie. I loved the faith element in the story and how the family never wavered from trusting God.

The story is like a spider web that weaves its prey into a place they cannot escape. There is more going on than just a kidnapping in this story. The drug cartel play a big part in the mystery as undercover agents are strategically placed to uncover crimes and rescue the innocent. This is a story that never stops with twists and leaves you breathless at times. I loved how the characters were vividly written and came to life in a story that captures pure greed and determination to get revenge. Don't miss this edge of your seat thriller that promises to keep you guessing.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
