Snipers refer to a point where a decision made could change the course of a target’s journey, as the release point. When Maddox Devereaux walked away from Glenn Webster six months ago, he’d reached that point and the path he chose meant he could never go back.
Maddox headed into combat and eventually found himself being held captive and tortured in South America by the head of a drug cartel hell bent on revenge. For Maddox, he felt as if that might just be his penance.
Glenn was tired of his team thinking that he was broken. Yes he had been raped, yes it had been horrible, but he had found a way to deal with that. What he was finding hard to process was how he had pushed Maddox away right when he needed him most.
When they find out that Maddox is being held captive, Bravo does what they do best. They load up and go to war. Maddox comes home and it takes all of them to help him heal. Little do they know, they are now the ones being hunted.
Can Glenn and Maddox find their way back together, or will this release point result in an outcome neither of them will survive?
Through the mission, we learn what happened to push Maddox away. We also get to see a bit of Maddox in captivity before Team Bravo sweeps in for the rescue. Once back at home, Glenn doesn’t leave Maddox’ side during his recovery, insisting on remaining by his side. They eventually hash out the past and are able to move on.
This was a quick read, and though I didn’t read the previous stories, I easily got to know the players and what was what. There were times, however, that I wondered if it may have been better to read them in case Maddox and Glenn were present, as it seemed as though there were some details lacking here and there, as we didn’t get a very good opportunity to really feel the emotion behind their relationship. It was an exciting story though, and I am definitely looking forward to going back and reading about the other characters on the team and will be on the lookout for the next installment as well.
