Last Day Book Review


Last Day

by Richard LaPlante

Charlie Wolf is an undercover cop assigned to infiltrate the Sons of Fire motorcycle club, suspected of manufacturing and distributing methamphetamine up and down the East Coast. Charlie’s been undercover for a long time—long enough to have broken the two cardinal rules of his work. He’s forged a strong friendship with Ray Sasso, president of the Sons of Fire. And he’s become addicted to meth.

A near-fatal mistake during the attempted bust by the cops leaves a bullet lodged in the right temporal lobe of Charlie’s brain. Operating to remove it would likely kill Charlie. Living with it will change him forever.

Two men linked by a tangle of lies and twisted loyalties. Two men who could not be more different—or more the same. When they meet again, for one of them it will be the Last Day.

My Review

 This book has quite a bit of action in it, but there’s a really interesting back story also. Charlie Wolf is undercover and is supposed to be taking down the bad guy. He starts to slip though and has started using the product and getting attached to and friendly with the man he’s supposed to be taking down. The book starts with a bang and doesn’t let go to the very end. Charlie is shot and has a near death experience. That leads him to question everything in his life, right down to what is reality and what may not be. The whole premise of the book is so intriguing that it would appeal to almost any reader of any genre. You can feel the love Charlie has for him family, but you can also tell that something just isn’t right after everything happens. Action, intrigue and love. There’s something for everyone in this story. If my husband were more of a reader I think this is a book he would really enjoy also!
