Critical Damage

Today I’m featuring a book that I have accepted for review. 

Mallen stared down at the hollow-point hypodermic needle poised over his arm, about a half-inch south of the crook in his elbow. The first needle he’d been around since quitting. The piece of rubber tied tight on his upper right arm was a sensation he hadn’t thought he’d ever experience again.

But here he fuckin’ was.

I read and reviewed the first Mark Mallen book, Untold Damage last year and loved it!! So I was thrilled when Mr. Lewis contacted me about reading his newest Mallen book, Critical Damage. I haven’t started this one yet, but those first few sentences really stick out at me because I know that Mallen is a recovering addict … is he relapsing? I’ll have to keep reading to find out 🙂 I can’t wait to get into this one and see what happens with Mallen this time around!
