From the best selling author of The Devil’s Necktie, and Blond Cargo comes the latest title in the Jack Bertolino series.Retired inspector Jack Bertolino straddles two perilous worlds. Known for his impeccable police work, Jack has also done a priceless favor for an infamous Mafia Don: he saved the gangster’s kidnapped daughter from being sold into the sex trade, and brought her safely home.
In Jack’s line of work, he can’t help but have friends—and enemies—on both sides of the law.
So when FBI agent Luke Hunter goes missing after a deep undercover assignment with that same mob boss, the FBI calls Jack in, looking for a favor. With his connections and skills, Jack’s the only man for the job: find Luke Hunter, dead or alive.
The Mobster operates an illegal gambling yacht in international waters off of Southern California, and when Luke went missing, so did half a million dollars of the mob's money. As Jack dives into the case, he’ll learn the true mystery isn’t the agent’s disappearance, but something far more ominous…
The Fourth Gunman is a sizzling action-packed thriller that will keep you turning pages until the explosive finale.
This is such a quick and exciting read. There is so much happening that is really difficult to put the book down. There are some really nice plot twists in there to keep it exciting.

John Lansing really was able to draw me in right from the start and keep me intrigued. The mystery in this book is great and I really like how Jack Bertolino handled this case. He is one of those characters I liked from the start. I like that he is not to self absorbed to ask for help and he knows how to get to some good people who can help him out.
I haven't read any of the books before in this series but that is ok. I did not have the feeling I missed something important. I am intrigued with John Lansings writing style so I will be sure to keep my eyes out for his next book.
My rating: 4/5
