Book Review – The Grey Man – Changes

JL Curtis has added to his “Grey Man” series with “Changes“. Here’s the plot synopsis from Amazon:

When Texas Deputy Sheriff John Cronin thwarts the Cartel’s plan to get paid to smuggle Muslims across the border, he becomes the target of the Cartel once again. One try fails, but the cartel isn’t about to give up. With his granddaughter, Jesse, still recovering from her last run-in with the Cartel and now far away with her Marine husband on a military base, Cronin only has to worry about the innocents around him.

One way or another, this old school law man plans to end this cat and mouse game for good. But, this time, the Cartel is playing for keeps; ending this war might just cost the old man his life.

Changes continues the story of John Cronin and his extended family as they get through life as peace officers, warriors, and family.  We see the relationship between his granddaughter Jesse and her new husband grow and blossom while they deal with life’s catastrophes and blessings, as well as Cronin himself work his way through life with Jesse out on her own.

As always, Curtis is an expert storyteller, and with this book he is really starting to hit his stride as a writer.  Changes grabs hold of you early and doesn’t let go.  It’s not a thriller by any means, but it’s easy to get wrapped up in the story so much that you’ll look up and wonder where the time went while you were reading.

This is a book that will be appropriate for young adults through senior citizens, and will make excellent entertainment for the beach or next to the campfire.  If you enjoyed the other two books in the series, you’re sure to like this installment.

Disclaimer – I received nothing in exchange for this review.  I was a beta reader for Mr. Curtis on this project, but bought my own copy once it was published.
