John Gilstrap really knows how to weave a story. After reading Even Stevens, I wasn't sure if he could match the intensity again. Then I read Nathan's Run and discovered that it has been his first book. Excellently written. So, two well written stories lead me to At All Costs. I was not disappointed. You won't be either. Oh, and I recommend reading Even Stevens and Nathan's Run as well.
Meet the Brightons. A family just like yours. They live in a small town, pay their taxes, and obey every law. Then one day their neighbors find out who Jake and Carolyn Brighton really are--the FBI's most wanted fugitives. Jake and Carolyn know they're not guilty. But the real innocent is their thirteen year old son, Travis. To save him-and them selves--from a life on the run, they will return to the scene of a crime beyond telling. And commit an act beyond all daring....
Good read, interesting, it has little twists and turns throughout the story that keeps you guessing.
Just beginning to read this author, a couple I've liked and a couple I don't, this is a don't
The storyline seemed to be a good one until it gets into why they are on the run for something they didn't do (of course) but the pages just drag page after page
I didn't feel like the story kept on track and instead had to continually go back, then repeat and repeat--a pet peeve for me
Just too much page filler at times which just make for more pages and gets boring quickly
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Meet Jake and Carolyn Brighton. They look like a typical American couple with a typically rambunctious thirteen-year-old son. They live in a small town, abide by every law, pay their taxes on time, and work very hard and successfully to blend in with their surroundings. Then one day authorities discover who - or who the FBI posters say - they really are. Fourteen years ago their last name was Donovan, and according to their accusers, they slaughtered sixteen of their friends and touched off an eco-disaster of unprecedented proportions. Now they're at the top of America's most-wanted list, and the feds want them badly. To achieve salvation, not just for themselves but for their son, Travis, the couple must attempt the insane: elude a massive manhunt and revisit the original scene of the crime - the toxic hell that just may contain the evidence that will set them free.
