Cajun Justice opening lines: “Abra la puerta!” she screamed. Secret Service agent Cain Lemaire shot up up in bed. He left behind the recurring nightmare loop he had already experienced too many times, awakening to the high-pitched shouts of a woman.

My blurb:

Not willing to turn on his colleagues, Secret Service agent Cain Lemaire finds himself out of a job. With nothing else to do, the offer of a stint as in private security from his twin sounds ideal. She sets him up with a friend and client, but it turns out that not all is it seems. When Bonnie is kidnapped Cain will do anything to save her, even if it means letting this new job go.

Cajun Justice
From the world’s bestselling thriller writer comes an international thriller going from the Bayou in Louisiana to Tokyo, Japan as justice is served.
Cain Lemaire, a Secret Service agent from New Orleans, has the job he’s always wanted – until a single night results in a scandal that gets him fired.
Needing a new direction, Cain follows his sister to Japan and takes a job in Tokyo as head of security for the CEO of a top company. But what he thought was a simple security assignment unravels a tangled web of corruption, greed and extortion.
Without the wealth of resources he had with the Secret Service, Cain will have to rely on his instincts and training as he races to find justice the way only a former agent can.
My verdict:

This was not the best James Patterson book I have ever read and at one stage I could have put it down and left it. Once past the initial opening chapters, the pace picked up and the read was OK. My best takeaway from the novel was this:

“Mountains exist for you to climb”, the monk said slowly in English, “not for you to carry.” (p267).
