About Westward:
All good men must come to an end....

Disgraced ex-cop Robert Hoon has crossed the wrong people for the last time.

Having struck a humiliating blow against the criminal network known as the Loop, Hoon has been targeted by the Alphas, an elite squad of assassins who will not stop until he is dead.

Outnumbered, outgunned, and on unfamiliar territory, Hoon's only chance of survival lies several hundred miles north, in a place he knows better than anyone else on Earth.

He swore he'd never set foot there again, but almost four decades after he left, Bob Hoon is finally going home.

My Thoughts:
I read with horror and fascination as Hoon tried to escape from the hospital!

This book made me laugh and made me cry!

I don't like plot holes, though. However, I will willingly overlook it for the reading enjoyment that this book brought.

You know that war is coming your way. You do not know if you are going to survive it. And you let two little girls stay to babysit them... WTF?!?

Angus King looked like a decent man and not the kind who swears a lot like a sailor, going by his picture alone. If he is, I bet the air in his studio turned blue when he was reading this book! Especially when he screamed Hoon's curses in the shower at the farm. :)
