Retired Police chief turned author Scott (LS) Silverii has released a prequel novel to the books in the Savage Souls MC series. Sabotage: Beginnings is an interesting mix of both military thriller with a splash of a suspenseful revenge tale.The plot revolves around Justice Boudreaux.

Ford’s hunt for Bin Laden is brutal. He is a killing machine willing to torture and desecrate people in order to get information. Boudreaux is in a difficult spot fighting aginst insurgents, corrupt local police, and his target Ben Ford.
Eventually, Boudreaux comes home to the USA and the book fast forwards a few years. Justice is married and has a small child.

Overall the story was very good. There are some brutal descriptions of killings and torture. Chief Silverii has an interesting way with words to describe violence. He also knows how to end a chapter on the cliffhanger, causing the reader to want to read just a few more pages to find out what happens next.
This book was not my normal reading. I tend to go for standard mystery and police procedural type thrillers. However, I am glad to have read this. Anyone reading this would likely also find Sabotage: Beginnings a worthwhile book to check out.
