The Breakthrough is a story that will keep you intrigued until the last page. Boone Drake has a great career as a police officer, a loving wife, and young son. All seems to be going well for Boone until his wife has an accident leaving her fighting for her life and that of her unborn child. While Boone is in the hospital waiting to hear from the doctor about his wife's prognosis, his son, Max, has gone missing after his "uncle" took him for a drive around the town. When Max doesn't return for hours, it becomes apparent to the boy's babysitter that he has been kidnapped. When Boone is told of Max's kidnapping, he leaves his gravely injured wife's side to find Max and bring him home. While investigating Max's disappearance, Boone discovers that the boy is just a part in a web of deceit and illegal adoption placement. Jerry Jenkins weaved a great thriller with many twists and turns that is sure to captivate any reader's attention and looking forward to reading a continuation in the Boon Drake series.
The Breakthrough is the 3rd book in the Precinct 11 Series by Jerry B. Jenkins. Boone Drake is the youngest bureau chief and head of the Chicago PD's Major Case Squad. He is recently married and adopted his new wife's son. He is worried that since everything is going so well and wonderful that something is going to go terribly wrong.
I had a really difficult time getting into this book. The characters are nice but I just couldn't relate to any of them. I don't know if it was the fact that it was the third book in the series and I had read the others or what. With all of that in mind, I didn't dislike the book. I would say give it a try if you like this sort of thing. It was well written but apparently just not my thing.
Boone Drake is back, and is now a bureau chief in the Chicago Police Department. His life is going well at work and home. But then tragedy strikes and he must decide between taking care of his wife or working a personal case.
I thought this book was great. The story moved at a good pace and kept the reader wanting to know what would happen next. I felt sorry for Boone and his constant troubles, but all was well in the end. I hope there will be a sequel.
