    WOW...What an exciting new story introducing us to Lawson Raines, FBI Agent living a good life with his beautiful wife and 2 year old daughter.

A man who believes in the justice system and works daily to protect the right and stop the wrong. Only to have his beliefs pulled out from underneath him when he walks up to his house and sees a pool of blood on the ground, his wife's body laying in a twisted heap. The justice system Lawson worked so hard for turns against him, he is found guilty of murdering his wife and is sent to life in prison. His daughter Lexi is pulled from his arms, his wife's sister takes her to raise. The years in prison are real tough for any officer, we see the fights and hardship, fear and disgust by inmates and guards. The adventure we go on with Lawson deals with revenge, love,back-stabbing, and friendship. The action is non-stop, scenes so well described that I could feel myself right there, and the plot worked through with some twisted turns, leading to the end. This is an explosive thriller that grabs you right away and has you completely hooked by the end of the prologue! When you start reading you can't put it down! I received an ARC of this story from author Bradley Wright, who I thank for this volatile adventure, and I am able to put my thoughts in this review so you too may want to meet Lawson Raines!

    Lawson Raines was a man on the wise within the FBI in Las Vegas. Not only that, he had a beautiful wife and gorgeous little 2 year girl. Then in the blink of an eye, all of that changed when he finds his wife and to make things worse, he is found guilty of the crime and sentenced to life in prison. Flash forward 10 years, Lawson has been behind bars fighting (and winning) for his life. Just like that he is released from prison.

Now the only thing on his mind is finding the killer of his wife and making him pay! The moment he steps out there the action ramps up. All I can say is you will not be able to put this book down. Every chapter the plot gets deeper and deeper. Mr. Wright made his mark with the Xander King series, but this is by far his best piece of work in his young career. Great action, great story and its one of the best books I have read in 2018.

    Even when reading, it is always exciting to meet a new character in law enforcement that if ever someone was in some type of situation when he/she (or in his/her family) needed justice that there would be someone to call upon, to rely upon, with absolute faith that the person would see the case through to the end regardless of the danger and with absolute confidence that the person was incorruptible. I knew that I had read about that guy when I "met" Jack Reacher as created by Lee Childs. [Also Even when reading, it is always exciting to meet a new character in law enforcement that if ever someone was in some type of situation when he/she (or in his/her family) needed justice that there would be someone to call upon, to rely upon, with absolute faith that the person would see the case through to the end regardless of the danger and with absolute confidence that the person was incorruptible. I knew that I had read about that guy when I "met" Jack Reacher as created by Lee Childs. [Also to clarify, that is not the Jack Reacher that Tom Cruise is portraying in the movies as he "doesn't even come close" to my imaginative character portrayal which I prefer to retain.] Now there's "a new kid on the block" in law enforcement in Lawson Raines as created by Bradley Wright. Especially if you're on the East Coast, you may not have heard about him as he's been in prison for the last 10 years but Lawson was considered a rising star in the FBI out in Las Vegas. I have to emphasize the past tense as a rising star as he's been serving a life sentence for murdering his wife. Justice failed him 10 years ago. Is justice still possible after all this time? Will he ever be able to see his daughter again? What has she been told for the last 10 years? This was a fast-paced thriller with some unexpected twists in Lawson's journey for justice that I didn't see coming. I couldn't seem to read fast enough to get the answers I wanted and yet I didn't want to miss a clue to figure out everything. That's a good story! After finishing this novel, the first thing I did was to check to see whether this novel might be a series opener and was so excited to discover that Lawson's story will continue in "Shooting Star" (Lawson Raines #2).

Don't want to say anymore as that would give it away...but Highly recommended if you like action and mystery. Will be looking for more books from this author.

This book is this about another complex man who takes whatever means necessary. This story reminds me of Harrison Ford in Proven Innocent. I won’t say any more. I’ll only say that this is a book 📖 you will definitely want to read. My rating is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars.

    Bradley has done it again. A book that takes place over barely 24 hours and includes enough action to keep your heart beating so hard you can hear it in your ears. Very well developed characters in this new series. I liked the prologue and appreciated that chaptor one started at year 10 and didn't include any of the court proceedings. That definitely wasn't needed in this book. I can't wait to see what Lawson gets into next! Bradley has done it again.

    I received this book as an ARC from the author. I am so happy that I did. This is an explosive book. There are cover ups, betrayal, revenge, and a love between a father and his daughter. This is the first in a new series and I look forward to reading more. If Bradley Wright is the author I will read it.

    Unrealistic but action-packed. Started somewhat decently but turned awful in the last quarter. So many stupid things but some highlights are: (view spoiler)[ 1) Hero is shot and unconscious for minutes, but his shooter doesn't take the extra second to put one in his head to make sure. Attempted lampshade with "He wasn't as good a shot as he thought he was." but when you're dealing with a modern day Rambo, you don't have ANY reason to take a chance by leaving him alive.

So many stupid things but some highlights are: (view spoiler)[ 1) Hero is shot and unconscious for minutes, but his shooter doesn't take the extra second to put one in his head to make sure. Attempted lampshade with "He wasn't as good a shot as he thought he was." but when you're dealing with a modern day Rambo, you don't have ANY reason to take a chance by leaving him alive. What's even worse is that the shots the guy landed weren't even obviously damaging (and thus potentially plausible kill shots) because the hero just walked it off. Total plot armor BS. 2) The whole final scenario with the 2 hostages. Absolutely zero reason for the bad guys not to go "you have 3 seconds to come out with your hands up or your daughter dies," the same strategy the shooter in #1 used to get the upper hand on the otherwise invincible hero. With 4+ people in the room they didn't even try to leverage the hostages in any way. Extremely poorly plotted and completely unbelievable. 3) "FBI hitman" suddenly turns conscientious when he realizes he was "about to shoot an innocent man" but has no qualms about holding a 12 y.o. child hostage? That didn't tip him off that he was working for the bad guys? Sure, author, whatever you say. 4) Mob boss not carrying in the final scene when he knows Revenge Dad is on his way to kill him. This is the same mobster that was one step ahead of the hero the entire book and now he suddenly turns stupid? 5) Hero kills what feels like 20+ people throughout the book but gets to walk away freely because the one murder that was pinned on him, he didn't do? Sure, whatever you say man. 6) The final scene where the good guys bluff their way into the mob den past the police cordon and walk out with bricks of money is so laughably stupid I wonder where he got the idea to write it. Utter drivel that sounds like an elementary schooler's fantasy. (hide spoiler)] Doubt I'll read any more books by this author but he should really stay on the side where his protagonists are invincible badasses that can outmaneuver anyone. When he puts them in perilous situations he has no idea how to write even remotely plausible scenarios to get them out. And by that I mean book-plausible, not even real-life-plausible. Avoid if you have any standards.

    Who hasn't thought about getting revenge on someone who has wronged you? How far would you go? What if it was someone you knew? From the author who brought us The Xander King series, we have a new hero to look up to. If revenge is a great motivator, Lawson Raines has the ultimate motivation when his perfect life is ripped from his grasp and his world is torn apart. Husband, father, friend, and now...prisoner.

What if it was someone you knew? From the author who brought us The Xander King series, we have a new hero to look up to. If revenge is a great motivator, Lawson Raines has the ultimate motivation when his perfect life is ripped from his grasp and his world is torn apart. Husband, father, friend, and now...prisoner. From the beginning of the book, when Lawson's wife is brutally murdered and he's set up to take the fall, author Bradley Wright takes you on a non-stop adventure thru the streets of Las Vegas and in the middle of a mob war. Lawson is released from prison after serving 10 years for a crime he didn't commit. After a surprise pardon from the Governor, he's on the streets and looking for revenge. He's going to find out who killed his wife and took his family from him, and he's going to make them pay...with their lives. Struggling with his inner demons through-out the book, Lawson's need for vengeance is balanced with the desire to have a relationship with his daughter, who is living with his wife's sister while he's in prison. This book isn't just about killing everyone who gets in his way either. He goes after the people responsible and along the way, he spares the life of an FBI hitman that will later turn out to be a lifesaver...literally. The details in this book are so descriptive, you'll think you've been to Vegas when you're done reading. Wright does a great job of taking the reader into the action with details about the location so that you feel like you're right there along with the characters. Also, this entire book encompasses a 2 day period. That's a lot of action packed into a short time frame. Hang on for the ride. It's gonna hit the fan...when the man comes around.

    What an amazing start to a new character. When the Man Comes Around is a display of what a man who is wrongfully accused and imprisoned for the murder of his wife will do to find those responsible once he is set free. Lawson Raines, former FBI agent, using the connections developed in jail, with the skills he learned in the FBI before wrongfully imprisoned, ends up looking for those responsible in the midst of a mob war in Vegas, that he is reluctantly drawn into. Bradley Wright’s prose perfectly What an amazing start to a new character. When the Man Comes Around is a display of what a man who is wrongfully accused and imprisoned for the murder of his wife will do to find those responsible once he is set free. Lawson Raines, former FBI agent, using the connections developed in jail, with the skills he learned in the FBI before wrongfully imprisoned, ends up looking for those responsible in the midst of a mob war in Vegas, that he is reluctantly drawn into. Bradley Wright’s prose perfectly captures the tortured soul of a man hell bent on revenge, and his struggle between whether he is the monster prison created, the man he was before, or something entirely different. The development of the character in essentially 30 hours of book time is wonderfully done, as each situation presented forces Lawson to confront who he is, and what he has become. The mark of a great book is that you do not know where the author is going to take the character next, and Bradley Wright accomplishes this perfectly with the ending of this book. It is left open to countless possibilities for the future. The events of the book are fast paced and action packed, with one chapter flowing perfectly into the next. I finished the book in one day because I had to know how it finished. I eagerly anticipate the next installment for such a compelling character.

Raines is a huge character that is both likable and believable. There are so many twists and turns in this book your head will be spinning BUT you will not be able to put it down. Bradley Wright has done it again. This is the first of hopefully many Lawson Raines novels. When your finished with this book and you too become a huge Bradley Wright fan, I would definitely recommend Wright's other character, Xander King. I will guarantee that you too will love each and every one of this author's books.

Lawson had it all family & FBI career but in the blink of an eye it was all gone. Now the " beast " left in his place will right the wrong done him. Those that did him wrong better fear " When The Man Comes Around " because he is playing for keeps. Can't wait for the next installment. Hurry! Hurry!

Everyone wants to kill this determined hero. but he is relentless, and the novel is an ongoing summary of all kinds of fight encounters across Vegas: with knives, guns, fists, and one memorable corkscrew. Sometimes Lawson stops and lets someone go for some reason, but mostly he kills,m kills, kills, and keeps going.

    Very unfortunate that I had literally just finished Harlen Coben’s audiobook No Second Chance before I read this book. I’m not sure how this particular book fell into my lap, but it did. My buying history must’ve recommended it. Had I read this six months down the road, I would’ve rated it higher I’m sure. Here’s my problem: This book is almost the exact same story as Harlen Coben’s book. The main character in this book is an ex agent, not a physician. He spends time in prison and is pardoned.

    Other reviews presented this as a "Jack Reacher" type of book - which I really like, so I downloaded it. Sadly, it is not even close. The dialogue is stilted and stereotypical, the plot shallow and the characters poorly developed. Lawson Raines in particular has none of the moral code of Reacher; he is just violent and blood thirsty. I have read the one and only in this series that I will bother with. Not even sure why I bothered finishing it. If you are looking for Jack Reacher II keep looking.

Lawson Raines in particular has none of the moral code of Reacher; he is just violent and blood thirsty. I have read the one and only in this series that I will bother with. Not even sure why I bothered finishing it. If you are looking for Jack Reacher II keep looking.

    Action packed... Intricate plot with lots of twists and turns. The body count really piles up as Lawson Raines tries to determine who killed his wife 10 years earlier. Raines' ability to beat the odds and escape one attempt on his life after another strains credulity after a while; but hey, the good guy has to come out on top, doesn't he. Fairly satisfying ending, even if two days of virtually non-stop killings, car hijacks and law breaking does seem to be resolved to police/FBI satisfaction rath Action packed...

    Bad Started okay, I thought maybe like two stars and a beach read when you don't have anything else. Had to labor through few chapters but have up before it even reached the middle of the book, life's too short to read books that bad. It's not totally garbage but it's such a cliche - almost super spy story. He is the one that always is smarter than anybody else. He plays people, reads their minds. And so many other things.

    When the man comes around. Bradley Wright Lawson Raines is an FBI agent. He is on a long due vacation with his wife and small child. The unthinkable happens. His wife is murdered. He is framed. Ten long, hard years in prison. A different man emerges when he is pardoned. A governors pardon? He is different. A hard man. Vengence. Extremely fast paced action thriller. Twists and turns to the very end. Enjoyed immensely!!

    One of the best I’ve read Lawson Raines spent 10 years in prison for killing his wife. While he was in prison, he’d learned valuable secrets about drug king pins who probably had the power and money to frame him. Now that he was out, could he use the secrets told in prison to find out who really killed his wife. This is a page turning thriller that will be very hard to put down.

    Great read, great action, Mark Beamon meets Jack Reacher meets Mitch Raap I don’t often write reviews but this book deserves one. Absolutely great beach read, with enough depth to keep you reading, yet great justice filled action that leaves you smiling when you look up at the end. Good stuff. Exactly right to escape into fiction!

    Great story I choose. A five star rating because that was the highest available. The story deserved at least ten star. Last year I read over 160 books but only reviewed a few. This year I have read 7 of Wright's and reviewed 3. If you are looking for series you Wii not be able to put down, please consider Wright. You Wii not be disappointed Great story I choose.
