Booklist Review: "Smith has been writing commercially successful thrillers, adventure novels, and historical fiction for more than 50 years and has built up a substantial audience. Here he teams up with Tom Cain in a follow-up to Those in Peril (2011) and Vicious Circle (2013). Once again featuring Major Hector Cross, the story is aimed at fans of adventure novels that showcase special ops in the manner of Brad Thor and Brad Taylor. Unfortunately, it's not one of Smith's better efforts. Cross has moved on from the murder of his wife, but her killer, Johnny Congo, has escaped from prison yet again. The manhunt starts anew, and Cross' new love realizes that she is out of the picture until this old business is resolved. Smith is not known for excessive violence, but he and Cain really pile it on here, almost as if gruesome action would somehow make up for a less-than-compelling story. Readers with strong stomachs may find all the mayhem exciting, but Smith loyalists are likely to be disappointed.--Ayers, Jeff Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Smith's thrilling third Crossbow novel, coauthored with Cain (and after 2013's Vicious Circle), Hector Cross's archenemy, Johnny Congo, who's been convicted of multiple murders, escapes from a Texas prison just hours before he's to be executed. Vowing to "concentrate every ounce of his strength and every cent of his enormous wealth on the complete and utter destruction of Hector Cross," Johnny begins building alliances to accomplish this task, concentrating on destroying Hector's company, Bannock Oil, physically and financially. Johnny secretly backs the charismatic rebel leader Mateus Da Cunha, who's attempting to overthrow Angolan rule over the tiny province of Cabinda, in whose territorial waters Bannock's drilling operation are located. Amid all the mayhem, Hector has time to acquire a beautiful new girlfriend, Zhenia Voronova. Smith's many fans will be delighted with this new serving of the author's usual heady mix of sex, violence, purple prose, and soap opera. Agent: Kevin Conroy Scott, Tibor Jones & Associates.
