All Through the Night- Blogger Tour
Award winning bestselling author Davis Bunn takes us on a wild ride (in a red Ferrari no less) in his action thriller All Through the Night. This was my first Davis Bunn read and as a John Grisham and James Patterson fan I am pleased to say that Mr.Bunn did not disappoint.
The hero, Wayne Grusza is a tough as nails special ops veteran with scars that go much further and deeper than than those acquired on the battlefield. He's tired of running from his pain but to even hope for a second chance at life and love seems like a moonshot. That is until he meets a group of senior citizens in need of a guy with his special skills and a lady with beauty equal to a modern day Ingrid Bergman in need of some healing of her own.
I thought it would be fun to imagine this bit from the book being narrated by Humphrey Bogart- so think Casablanca as you read the following:
"The voice was all burr and rough music, the words slanted at the edges like her eyes. Wayne thought it was silly getting a tingle in his gut, just hearing this woman finally speak. He saw in her gaze the message he had come to know all too well. The one that said, I'm not going to give you anything like what you want. Not now, not ever."
Pretty great huh?
