Rock Island Rock is a combination of heart-pounding suspense, philosophical exploration and literary beauty, all set to a rock music backdrop. Daniel met his fate on Robert Johnson's crossroads, where he struck a deal with the shadowy bluesman. Now the direction his life takes is in Atibon's hands.

The action here is intense and, at times, graphic. But that's balanced with well-developed characters and a thought-provoking story. As we take the journey with Daniel, we explore the often thin line between good and evil. We ask ourselves if it's okay for a good person to do horrible things for the right reasons. And maybe we even root for him as he kills the people in his way.

I wish Daniel's choices had been more open-ended, rather than the do or die sort of thing that offers no real choice at all. Still, the story gives Daniel plenty of wiggle room, allowing us to see the kind of man he is.

This is the second book in the series. I didn't read the first one, Blues Highway Blues: A Crossroads Thriller, and had no problem following the story here. But I enjoyed this one so much that I plan to go back and read the first. ( )
