Neal Maven returns to Boston from his tour in Iraq only to discover that the country he vowed to protect has little use for him now. The men and women who remained Stateside are years ahead of him both personally and professionally, which embitters him and pushes him toward his breaking point.And then he meets Brad Royce. Royce is everything Maven wants to be: a fellow vet, charismatic and confident, principled, wealthy, and with a beautiful woman on his arm. Not just any beautiful woman, but Danielle Vetti—the most stunning girl from Maven’s high school. Literally, the girl of his dreams. Royce offers Maven a much-needed job, and Maven soon finds himself a part of Royce’s team of “sugar bandits,” a group of fellow veterans who use their military skills to intercept major drug deals, taking the dirty money while destroying the product—a get-rich scheme with a clear moral imperative. Though exceedingly dangerous and certainly illegal, the efforts of these modern-day Robin Hoods provide Maven with the adrenaline charge he’s craved since his decommission. Besides, Maven can’t resist the chance to be in Danielle’s orbit once again. Suddenly, Maven’s life is better than he ever thought possible: a soldier in a civilian’s world, he is once again able to do something he excels at and rediscovers the camaraderie he’s sorely lacked since his return. He can get into any club, eat at any restaurant, be with any woman he wants—except, of course, his dream girl. It’s almost too good to be true. In fact, it is too good to be true when Maven learns that nothing is as it seems, but he’s in too deep and can see no way out. . . .  Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Cwelshhans | 2/17/2014

    " This one isn't nearly as good as Prince of Thieves (which is pretty much perfect), but I do really like Hogan's style and will definitely be reading more of him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Andy | 2/14/2014

    " Great read. I'm really digging on Hogan and his stories about real people doing things for real reasons, like money. I don't agree with the choices that the characters make, but I can see where, in our society today, people will go to almost any lengths to ensure they get what they want. Me? I'm happy right where I am, but I love to read about someone who thinks differently than me. All hail Hogan! "

    " Waaay to heavy on the bad guy jargon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mark | 2/5/2014

    " Hogan has created an illegal Camel Club with this group of vets taking down the drug trade in and around Boston...like Baldacci, a great story-teller with enough twists to keep the pages turning!!! "
