Genre: Thriller, Suspense
After a number of earthquakes hammer the Sierra Madre region of Mexico, Grupo Verdugo, a splinter group of cartel enforcers, takes control of the drug shipping routes through that territory. Caught in the middle, a small orphanage high in the mountains, desperate for supplies to care for the children and the battered earthquake victims, reaches out to Abel Yeager for help.
Yeager and his friend Victor agree to deliver the needed food and medicine. But Grupo Verdugo seems to have a special interest in starving out the clergy and forcing them to bend to their will. They send a man known as the Executioner to stop anyone daring to assist the people.
Yeager and Victor are in for the biggest fight of their lives as they are forced to move forty children, a dozen sick and injured patients, and one feisty doctor out of the mission and through mountains infested with vicious killers.
Yeager's Mission is about Abel Yeager who is asked to help refugees in Mexico from multiple earthquakes. But something sinister comes with the past earthquakes, among refugees, there is a good amount of bad guys that have popped up. And they do not want Yeager and his people to help the poor victims of the earthquakes.
Yeager's Mission is great! It is a nice read, it's full of adventure and suspense. But there were times that I couldn't help but laugh a little. The writing style of the author great, it was a mixture of fast-paced and slow. I knew this was going to be a good book from the beginning because Yeager's Mission has a perfect introductory. The book began smoothly and I understood what was going to happen immediately. The characters in Yeager's Mission are all great as well, they all had keen character development!
I would give Yeager's Mission five stars! I also would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an adventure book with a handful of suspense and the possibility of a sprinkle of humor.
