Mini Review: The End Game

Today's book is The End Game, the second Burn Notice tie in novel by Tod Goldberg.

Michael is just trying to survive Mother's Day when Sam calls. He's found another client for them. Gennaro Stefania is in Miami to pilot the family yacht in the Hurricane Cup. But he's been told his wife and daughter are kidnapped and unless he looses the race, they will be killed. Michael starts poking around and finds a hornetts nest. Can he rescue the women before he gets stung?

For fans of the TV show, this is a treat. The characters are spot on and the humor and action of the show are perfectly capture. My only complaint was a plot that occasionally took jumps I had to think long and hard about before they made sense. I'm not sure if I was just being dense or if the book needed one or two more things ironed out for us. Eventually, it did all make sense, however.
