If the first book in the series didn’t draw you in, this one is a sure bet!
Murphy Shepherd always leaves the ninety-nine behind to search for the one. The one that no one else could find that’s being trafficked. And he’s made a lot of enemies along the way that would love nothing more than to silence the man who has destroyed their profits once and for all. Unfortunately, someone has found the ability to do just that and not only have they destroyed his beloved island, they have captured his new wife and teenage daughters. Murphy must race against time with the tables turned on him to find his family before they meet a fate worse than death.
So, if you loved the rough, tough persona of Murphy Shepherd created during in The Water Keeper then you are in for a treat in this new book. There is not as much action as the first book, but readers get to see the man behind the persona and really begin to understand who he is. From childhood to university to how he become involved in this line of work. In addition to all of this, readers get to know some of the supporting characters better including Bones and his daughter Ellie. One of the most surprising elements of the book was developing the story of Casey, who was found at the end of the first book. She develops into such a beautiful, yet fierce, character with some unexpected twist and turns along the way.
If you thought the first book mirror the move Taken, this was makes you think it will be like Taken 2, but it is much more than that. Grab a copy as soon as you can!
