Clayton White Is Back
4.25 out of 5 stars
I’ve enjoyed Gervais’s writing for a while now; each book seems to add something new and interesting to the last one. And seemingly, each new series has its own twists and turns. I enjoyed the first book within the Clayton White series, The Last Protector, so when I saw The Last Sentinel was released, I knew I had to jump on it.
Gervais doesn’t hold back and jumps right into the action. The Last Sentinel starts with a flashback, and things seem to spiral from there. He’s able to paint these gritty stories across multiple countries and places. Each time I thought I knew how this would end, it would make a change, or someone or something else would come to light. I love the “they almost got me” style employed here because it feels like Clayton is close call after close call from not coming home.
The story itself flew by. I thought that Gervais focused a lot on making sure that even the slower scenes had an edge to them. Toss in the excellent performance by Jeffrey Kafer, who never disappoints, and The Last Sentinel was a book that I absolutely devoured.
From the celebrated author of The Last Protector comes an action-packed sequel about a man whose duty to his country threatens the life of the woman he has vowed to protect.
Ex-Secret Service agent Clayton White doesn’t miss the relentless danger that defined his career. These days, he’s enjoying life at sea with his fiancée – who also happens to be the daughter of the double-dealing vice president, Alexander Hammond. But for the most part, Clayton has made peace with his old nemesis.
Then their ship, the NOAAS Surveyor, comes under attack. That same day in Miami, the Second Lady of the United States is assassinated. Hammond, who dodged the bullet meant for him, calls upon Clayton to help him hunt down the responsible party.
Clayton wants nothing to do with the notorious vice president, who boasts a violent and capricious history. But with his fiancée’s life in the balance, Clayton has no choice. He jumps back into the fray, where he’ll face off with enemies new and old. And unbeknownst to Clayton, a deep-rooted enemy has been waiting in the shadows and has now set his sights on him.
This time, it’s not just the world Clayton’s trying to save – but the woman he loves.
