Book Review: A Wolf On The Loose By Daniel Straka

A Wolf On The Loose
By Daniel Straka
Genre: Thriller, Adventure, Military

A Wolf On The Loose is a weekly e-serial, containing 36 parts spread over 5 episodes. One part is released weekly, free, on Amazon for 5 days (Monday-Friday). Completed episodes are available for purchase. 

Amid struggling with his addictions, former Marine Andrew St George goes AWOL from his rich family and lavish lifestyle. He appears months later in Miami with one intent; convince his friend, Emilio Cortez, to start a Private Military Company with him. Having left the Corps after his brother was killed in a drive-by, Emilio’s been stuck working three jobs to support his extended family, all of whom he lives with in a small apartment. 

While Andrew and Emilio enter into the security business looking for an escape from their civilian lives, both struggle with their demons. From the slums of Miami, the glitzy South Beach nightlife, to Cartel controlled Mexico, the boys will learn that despite their best intentions, no one job is the same and that there are battles to be fought outside of war zones. 

My Review

I am pretty fascinated with war stories, so I was looking forward to reading this series. Plus, the concept of following along to an e-series rules, too. We instantly meet Andrew St George, who is struggling with settling back into civilian life after coming home from war overseas. He ditches his wealthy family and friends and seeks out a fellow Marine, Emilio. I really like Emilio's character. He is loyal to the people in his life and works hard. He's pretty grounded unlike his pal, Andrew. But Andrew has contrived a plan to open up his own business and is trying to convince Emilio to join him. That's when the adventures really begin. I'm hooked and a new fan of A Wolf on the Loose!
