A Review of The Second Man: A Paul Madriani Novella by Steve Martini

The Second Man: A Paul Madriani Novella

by Steve Martini

Mr. Martini wrote this short novel for a reason. It wasn’t just to sell some more books in the Paul Madriani series. It wasn’t to make a quick buck. He wrote this book because he believes that PTSD is a real problem in this country. He uses The Second Man as a way to publicize what is happening to our returning serviceman and women. But he writes this, not as a sermon, but rather as an exciting thriller. He takes a couple of hours out of your life and entertains you, and leaves you thinking about the problem that we all are facing.

This was a thoughtful but exciting book. I give The Second Man 4 Stars out of 5, and a Big Thumbs Up! If you are a Paul Madriani fan, you will like the different point of view in this book, but this story holds up well as a “stand-alone” book. That means that everyone should read it, because the message is important.

I received this book from the publisher.

Book Description

The Second ManNavy SEALs are the military’s elite—highly trained, deadly, and sworn to secrecy about the details of their dangerous and confidential missions. So when one of the men goes public about a high-profile assassination abroad, all of his comrades are thrown into peril.

In this riveting novella, attorney Paul Madriani comes to the aid of a Navy SEAL who is pursued by his own government and facing possible prosecution for disclosures he says were made by others. When the soldier disappears, Paul finds himself ensnared in a deadly game of intrigue that forces him to track the man down before it is too late.
