ABOUT THE BOOK


A loner, trying to forget. A community--and a woman--who need for him to remember...
Broken relationships and unfulfilled promises scatter themselves across Wayne's past like burned-out craters. His background in military special-ops is something he's trying to forget. But when he gets himself sweet-talked into helping a quirky group of seniors who've been scammed, he discovers it will take a lot more than muscle and nerve. Breach a conman's high-security estate to recover stolen money? No problem. Become part of community? Love again? Not on your life.

A lawyer with her own painful past is intrigued by Wayne and asks him to take on another unusual case--Tatanya's wealthy employer believes he's been visited by...an angel? Did a messenger from God in a pinstripe suit truly bring a divine warning, or is this merely another cruel hoax? Tatanya is willing to trust Wayne with her boss's life, but she's not sure she's ready to trust him with her own wounded heart.

With a financial analyst's skills and a warrior's tenacity, Wayne races to unmask dangerous forces hiding behind a corporate veil. But he will need all his resources--and then some--against an unseen enemy bent on destroying his fragile bid for a second chance at life...and love.

All he wanted was to put his past behind him. But now it's the only thing that will save them...

MY REVIEW:
I was looking forward to reading Davis Bunn's new book but didn't really know what to expect. I'm glad that I kept an open mind while reading because he blew me away with this book! It was such an interesting twist (hello - we're talking about a special ops accountant here people!) and in the first quarter of the book Wayne manages to wrap up the old people's trouble. I thought that was going to be the main jist, but noooo, it was only getting started there!
And can we say supporting cast? We have a retired cop with a thing against juvies, an old man that sits in airports in his spare time and a 13 year old juvie. Oh, and there is an old lady who stays in close contact with God and they all live in a retirement village. Don't forget that Wayne isn't a Christian and his sister is a member of the cloth. Hmmm, and that is only the beginning.
This is a must read people - and if you want to see the interview I had with Davis Bunn previously then click here

All through the Night sounds like a great book. Thanks for the post!
One that I've just finished putting down is called Bear Any Burden , by Ellis Goodman.
I really enjoyed it!
