My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For a 300+ page book, this book was fast-paced and of course, you’re smack dab in the middle of the action and it’s suspenseful and full of impact. From the characters to the very end, you feel like a part of the squad. It’s so riveting to read you’re excited to see how and where it ends. The truth is that I loved it from start to finish. Every aspect of it was fun, action-filled and of course, after reading previous works from Mr. Mark Nolan I couldn’t have been more excited to get started on this one.

Jake Wolfe and his ex-war dog Cody are back in another of their thrilling adventures and this time, they are in Key West in Florida so that Jake can attend the wedding of a friend, it is a barefoot beach wedding at one of the resorts on the Marina and while Jake is mingling with the other guests and catching up with people, he has a feeling that all is not well, his neck is tingling and the feeling of a premonition of danger, despite the fact that most of the guests are veterans and it is probably one of the safest places in the Keys, but this feeling only intensifies when a drone passes by and looks directly at him, even though this particular hotel has a no fly policy. After the ceremony finishes and the reception is over, Jake and Cody sail the newlyweds to their cruising sloop, however, as they approach it, Cody alerts Jake that he can smell something on the boat, the newlyweds stubbornly don’t allow Jake and Cody to investigate, preferring to set off on their honeymoon instead. Unfortunately, minutes after they set off there is an explosion followed by a ball of flame as the boat blows up in front of Jake. As the authorities arrive and take control of the situation, Jake is struggling with feelings of guilt and remorse and he is blaming himself for not insisting harder on carrying out the check until he sees the same, or very similar drone flying around and this throws him into a rage where he threatens the person behind it and swears revenge.

The next day, all the local news networks are talking about the devastating event and the person who has claimed responsibility for it by sending them the drone footage, as well as their ransom demand for $30 million from Monroe County. Meanwhile, the criminal being discussed is planning their next targets, the timings of them, planning the method of placement and finding out as much as they can about the man who threatened them. Jake is having breakfast with friends and trying to make sense of what happened when Jake receives confirmation that his request to take Cody to check some of the other marinas in the area has been approved and so the pursuit of the bomber commences in earnest. When the group leave, Cody turns up outside the restaurant and so Jake splits off from the others to take him for a walk back to the marina, but just as they are passing the county courthouse, Cody signals that he senses something followed by Jake seeing an individual jumping out of a car and heading away on a bicycle. Jake realises what is about to happen and shouts a warning before firing a gun shot in the air to encourage people to listen and just as the two clear the area and take cover, there is a blast from the abandoned vehicle. Jake goes into marine mode and starts to fight the fires in the immediate area while making sure that people are ok while demanding that someone calls the authorities. When they arrive at the area, he again has to make a statement and he is again annoyed that he wasn’t able to stop it, or protect the people around him, but as he talks it over with people later on, he is even more resolved to help solve the mystery of what is happening.

As the days follow on and more attacks are planned and carried out, the locals and tourists are becoming increasingly worried by the situation, as are the local government, but they are worried about the economic impact it could have on this area which revolves around tourism. Will Jake and Cody be able to figure out who is behind the attacks and why before more innocent lives are lost, or will they be the next victims before they get the chance? This is another thrilling race against time where an ex-marine and ex-war dog take on another criminal with malicious intentions.

Key West Dead (Jake Wolfe Book 6) by Mark Nolan is another excellent read. I really like these Jake Wolfe books. They are good whodunit novels, mystery, intrigue, plenty of action, and just the right amount of love. I have to say, in view of the way this story plays out, I’m really worried about that snake. One of the things I like best about Mark Nolan’s books is that not everything is made up. Even though some of it sounds science fictiony he always takes the time and trouble to tell you about his research on the things that he adds to the story. I really like that, I think you will too.

Key West Dead is a great read Mr. Nolan did a great job. The characters are amazing the description of the scenes are great.

Jake is in trouble yet again He visits the Florida Keys but now someone is killing his friends and Jake vows to shut down the murderer’s crime spree, even if it means settling the score through illegal vigilante justice.

Can Jake fin out who is killing his friends? Will he go to far and not come back from it?

This is the next book in the Jake Wolfe series and I couldn’t put it down.
Jake and Sarah are in Key West for a wedding. Jake finds out that death threats have been sent to some of his buddies. While on their way back to their boat there is a huge dangerous twist.

Will Jake and Cody be able to solve the mystery? Who is after his buddies and why?

Overall this was a thrilling read that had several twists and turns. The author does a great job with his writing and pulls you right in. You can read this book as a stand alone but I highly suggest you start from the beginning. All of the secondary characters were great. If you are looking for a great series, 1-click and get started today.

Key West Dead (Jake Wolfe Book 6) by Mark Nolan. I LOVE this series! I can’t wait for each new one and I might just have a huge crush on Jack Wolfe! You can read these as a standalone but I highly recommend reading them in order just to get the best reading experience. This book finds the gang in Key West for the wedding of friend Harlan who is a Veteran friend so all the guests were mainly vets. When Jack spots a drone around the boats he gets an uneasy feeling so he’s on high alert. After the wedding Cody, Jack’s retired military dog hits on the boat the newlyweds are getting on he knows somethings up. Things go downhill from there and Jack is determined to find out who is responsible. In this book you get to see more of Jack’s relationship with his girlfriend Sarah as they are planning on renting a boat together and living on it. When Jack realizes he’s up against a psychotic bomber its a huge rush to find him before its too late for Jack and Cody! Read this book for a can’t put down thriller. You won’t be disappointed.

4 Stars

This was not my favorite of the series, can’t really pinpoint why, it just didn’t seem to flow as well at times. I still loved the book because I love Jake and of course Cody. It has always amazed me that this author can take a character like Cody and make him one of my favorite book characters ever. I completely enjoyed more of Sarah in this story. I would love to see more emphasis on these two, but seeing a few different sides to her in this part really helped. More focus on their relationship would make me really happy.

All of these books can be read as standalones but reading them all will give you a better feel for these characters. I’ve always said this would make for a great TV series and I do plan to binge read these sometime in the future as I really enjoy this author’s writing style and the edge of your seat suspense that is always offered.

Can’t wait for more!

I give Key West Dead (Jake Wolfe Book 6) by Mark Nolan, 5 stars.

I should know better by now. When I first started this book, I wasn’t sure if I was really in the mood for this genre. My genre moods change frequently and I couldn’t decide on what I wanted to read. Of course, I was wrong. I was yet again quickly pulled into the story and could not put it down. I love Jake and Cody and the adventures they get themselves into. There is plenty of action and suspense in this book and it does not take long for it all to start. There are some surprises in this story too, one of them got me in the beginning. After that, I was hooked.

I love being taken for a thrilling ride filled with suspense, some laughter, some love, and some loss. This book has it all. The characters you love most are back too, along with new ones you will want to see again. A fan of suspense thrillers (not gonna lie, a huge fan of Cody too), I highly recommend this book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Key West Dead is the 6th book in the Jake Wolfe series. It centers around the character Jake Wolfe. This book easily stands alone or as part of the series. I have not read the others in the series, yet I had no trouble keeping up with the characters or back stories. I do plan to read the others now as this book was so good. Mark Nolan did a superb job with this book. There were several things I loved about his writing. One, the characters appropriately cursed, and it fit with the characters. However, Mark Nolan didn’t just use the F word or other language. He would describe the language in such a way that you completely understood without being vulgar. The second thing I enjoyed was that there were no descriptive sex scenes. The main character and his girlfriend flirted, and the story alluded to them having sex. But it wasn’t crucial to the story and never went into great detail. This book was a fantastic read. I had trouble putting it down. I highly recommend you take the journey down to Key West and into the life of Jake Wolfe!

I really enjoy the adventure I find in each of Nolan’s books. This latest adventure was no exception. Just the right balance of intrigue and suspense, I was left guessing until the very end. Excellent book and series.
