Scott Wilkinson is a successful young advertising executive on his way to the top. Christopher Miller is an FBI legend who has been willing to do whatever it takes to see that justice is done. However, at age 50, he's ready to spend more time with his family. Two weeks before Christmas, Scott goes on a routine business trip that will forever entangle their two lives. It starts like so many others. Wilkinson calls for a car service to take him from his home to the airport. But the driver of Lincoln Town Car 716 is late. When he finally shows up, he drives like a maniac, and Wilkinson feels fortunate to reach the airport alive. Then, he makes a big mistake. Wilkinson calls the limousine company to complain. Customer Service assures him the bad driver will be "dealt with." Nicolai Kyznetsoff looks and sounds like all the anonymous others who whisk successful young executives back and forth to the airport every day, but the man behind the wheel of Car 716 is something much more sinister: an avenging dark angel who will stop at nothing to wreak revenge on the one man he holds responsible for ruining his life.

My first seasonal read of the year was quite the zinger. Slay Ride by Chris Grabenstein is a fast paced, action packed thriller that is wrapped up in a Christmas theme. Lots of mayhem and murder interspersed with Christmas cookies, music and school concerts.

Starting two weeks before Christmas, the story revolves around Christopher Miller, a F.B.I. agent who gets involved with the Russian mafia while trying to solve a kidnapping. With a psychotic villain as evil as they come, he has his work cut out for him. Eventually the evil is brought too close to home and Miller’s family is threatened.

This story takes off the minute you open the book, the plot is a little contrived, but fairly well-crafted. There is both graphic violence and language, but if you are looking for high powered thriller, this book pushes all the buttons.
