A story of faith,friends and family. It is all there in this new action-packed thriller.
My Life, For Her is a story about a Vietnam Veteran who becomes a cop, and a cop who becomes a hero as he struggles to save his family from the clutches of darkness and evil. The storyline take the reader from hometown America to the remote jungles of Columbia.
Suspense, action and drama are crafted together in this book for a memorable tale. This story is not only an action packed thriller, but is a tale of family, faith and friendship as well.
Rob heated up some supper for the kids and put on a pot of coffee. Right after dinner, he got the kids settled in bed. He checked the time. Where was Beth Anne? He called the hospital,"Please let her be there," he hoped. The floor nurse answered. She said that Beth Anne left hours ago, as far as she knew, to meet them at the game. Now he was worried, fingers of fear spread through his body and mind. It was so unlike her not to at least call. He called Beth Anne's parents, thinking maybe she went there, but they had not seen her either.
Time went by---hour after agonizing hour, and still no word. That was when Rob gave in his hope and realized it. The fear was starting to consume him. His hands were shaking. It was that same bad feeling when he was in the war, back on the jungle trail---something was---terribly wrong!

Review by Carol Hoyer PhD
First let me say, if you haven’t read Bullets and Bandages by this same author you should. This is a terrific follow-up to Rob a Vietnam vet who spent time as a medic seeing all the horror of a war he wasn’t sure he wanted to be in an and now ten years latter is a cop in Pikeville, NJ. Married with two great kids, Rob can finally, not completely take the warrior and nightmares out of his life, but it is getting better.
Pikeville is a great town to live in and be a cop. No major crimes, no serial killers just the usual domestic violence, and questions from the locals. His wife’s uncle is the chief of the police department and knows that Rob likes to go “wild” in his favorite car sometimes. During this particular driving to nowhere, Rob hears police sirens and realizes that a high- speed chase is in progress and decides to join the pursuit. Little did he know that this case would start one of the worst nightmares he has ever encountered. The suspects have crashed their car and caution is being taken to ensure the officers are not harmed. However, the suspects felt the need to open fire and as a result one dead and one wounded. Pikeville police found themselves involved in drug smugglers from a large cartel and now the FBI have become involved.
Rob, ever vigilant has a feeling something bad is going to happen in his little town. His slight paranoia returns as he goes home to take a break from all the excitement. Expecting to see his wife before he goes to a little league game. Rob becomes concerned when she doesn’t call or show up at the game. The nightmare begins.
From the very first page to the last, readers will not be able to put this action packed book down. Readers will not want to miss a moment and when the action is over, let down will occur. Frankly, I hated for the book to end. I wanted more.
The author’s ability to put readers in the character’s minds is outstanding, one could feel the bullets zip past, the anger and concern when family members don’t come home. It is often hard for Vietnam vets to forget nightmares, smells and sound from the war, and when people you love are put in danger it all returns. The research, detail and knowledge of returning vets and police departments make this story more authentic.
My recommendation is that everyone read books by this author; he is a great supporter of all men and women who are serving or have served in the military.
"On the razors edge"
Review My Life, For Her
On the Razor's Edge
Off-duty police officer Rob Marrino was cruising along in his 1969 Mustang when a hot, black car flashed by him on the road. The state police and Rob exchanged gunfire with the drug dealers and by the time it was over, one of the cartel was dead and the other taken into custody. Rob had the strangest feeling it wouldn’t be just a simple arrest and he was right.
Rob’s wife, Beth Anne, never saw her assailant as he grabbed her from behind in the hospital parking lot and pushed her into a waiting van. Thus began her nightmare of terror. When she was awake, her Columbian kidnappers bruised and abused her, taking liberties with her beautiful body while she prayed for a miracle. To free his wife, Marrino enlists the help of Tex, one of his friends from their “bullets and bandages” days in Vietnam. Not only is Tex a brilliant strategist, but he is absolutely deadly - whether or not he has a weapon in his hands. Together, they set out to free Beth Anne or die trying.
The Columbian jungle is a hot and steamy war zone, literally crawling with poisonous spiders and snakes, while death hovers nearby in the drug cartel’s rugged camp. The assault on the rebel base is a heart pounding lunge toward freedom. The reader can almost hear the staccato pop of gunfire ricocheting off the trees, feel the deep thrum of multiple explosions in his chest and taste bloody fear on his tongue as all of their lives tremble on the razor’s edge.
How can Rob and Tex extricate a terrified Beth Anne from her ruthless captors? It seems an almost impossible task. And yet, when things seem bleakest, an unexpected player may yet help them win the day. My Life, For Her gathers momentum like a huge locomotive, gathering speed with each page and thundering toward an explosive climax.
