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:

Last Day is not a book I normally wouldn’t have picked to read, mostly because I don’t usually veer outside the paranormal genre.  When I looked at the cover, I had no clue it was actually a paranormal story! It really surprised me. I liked how quick the book moved and I never felt bored or the need to put it down. The characters are well developed and the relationship between them is believable. Last Day basically, to me, was like if you mixed Bourne Identity and Flatliners. I was really hooked a few pages in. Even though not many of the characters including the MC Charlie are likable or even redeemable, you become almost invested in their story, you want them to win and survive.  It’s a crazy ride from cover to cover…a great read. If you are an action lover, you will totally dig this book.
