The Breakthrough, Precinct 11 Series #3
Wow! This was another great novel from Jerry Jenkins. This novel had me hooked from the very beginning. This novel continues with Drake Boone and his new family. I don't want to give it away but there is an incident that happens within the family that he must try to solve. It really keeps your attention. Jerry Jenkins is a very gifted author and I have never read a book by him that I didn't love! I would definitely recommend this book to everyone out there!

This is book 3 in the Precinct 11 Trilogy. Even though it stands alone well, reading the first 2 books (The Brotherhood and The Betrayal) will enhance the reading of this one. Like the first two, this was a page-turner. I did not understand the why of what happened to Haeley (you have to read to find out), and thought it could have been left out. The tension and suspense builds up and then is tied up a bit too quickly for me. I really like Boone and hope he makes a return appearance. The character's faith is explored but it not too preachy. Overall I enjoyed this book despite a couple of issues I had with it.

Action, Adventure, Suspenseful Thriller
Jerry B. Jenkins in his new book Ã¢ÂÂThe BreakthroughÃ¢ÂÂ Book Three in the Precinct 11 series published by Tyndale House Publishers takes us back into the life of Boone Drake and the Chicago Police Department.
From the back cover: After years of turmoil, Boone Drake seems to be back on track. He is the youngest bureau chief in Chicago Police Department history, he heads the cityÃ¢ÂÂs Major Case Squad, he has a new family, and his relationship with God has never been better. Still, Boone canÃ¢ÂÂt fight the feeling that something is about to go terribly wrong . . . again.
When disaster strikes, it seems Boone is destined to repeat the past, as tragedy threatens those closest to him. And when his own familyÃ¢ÂÂs safety is at stake, Boone is forced to make a difficult choice: stay with his wife, Haeley, who desperately needs him, or pursue a human trafficking ring from the narrow streets, alleys, and hovels of the famed hutong district in Beijing, China, to the ancient city of Tianjin. The stakes have never been higher for Boone as the all-too-personal case grows increasingly dangerous . . . and time is running out.
The action doesnÃ¢ÂÂt stop as Boone Drake travels from Chicago to China dealing with a human trafficking ring. Ã¢ÂÂThe BreakthroughÃ¢ÂÂ is a page-flipping thriller where not only is his life in danger but the lives of his new family as well. Mr. Jenkins great skill is not only in creating suspenseful plots but in his marvelous characterizations. From Boone all the way down to minor characters they all come to life and we sit on the edge of our seats and we root for them to succeed in the face of what seems like overwhelming odds. Ã¢ÂÂThe BreakthroughÃ¢ÂÂ is a great read with Mr. Jenkins making us flip the pages as fast as we can because we want to know what happens with Boone and see if he survive and put the bad guys out of business. I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. Mr. Jenkins is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as he tightens the suspense. I am looking forward to, hopefully, more books in this series.
