The book is really good, fast paced, sad at times, has the Russian & Italian Mob, and my favorite HOT Bikers!!

This is a very good book. It is the 2nd book in the Wanted Men Series, but as I done read it as a stand alone. Thare are only a few refences in the book that you would need to read book 1 in order to get the full gist of what they mean. I will however be picking book 1 up, and can't wait for book 3. I was given my copy of this book for my honest review, but that had no bearing on my feeling for this book or my review.
