hopefully ever know When Tommy Jump bumps into a former classmate working for the FBI, he is tasked with working as an undercover actor in order to seek out answers against one of the most deadly cartels in Mexico New Colima The FBI wants to stage a coup against the cartel, and Tommy s professional history is the key to unlocking how Tommy Jump is a former child star famous from his Broadway days, but he s been struggling to find work after being typecast in the role that made him famous Although nervous about being put in jail, he takes this as a gig and knows that he will not only be helping the criminal justice system out, but he will also be making enough money for his family to thrive on for a good amount of time in the future They won t have to worry about their next paycheck, and they can live a good life for enough time for Tommy to find another job Under a pseudonym, Tommy has entered the prison where he must go undercover and find out the truth However, with New Colima also peeking nearby, will this be his last act I really can t get into the story any than I have, because it s just one of those novels that you need to take just a peek before diving in, but then you need to dive in full force And once you do dive in, you will be shook Seriously, I read this over the holiday break, and instead of talking to my family, I just ignored them and read this amazing Brad Parks novel The writing is on point, gripping, and it delivers I seriously cannot believe how gripped I was in this story, especially since I ve read so many books over the last year with a similar premise One thing that sticks out with The Last Act that so many books fail to deliver, is the fear of reality Although I m not an actor, and probably never get asked to participate in such a riveting acting job, I do think that Tommy s fears and stress with life is relatable Money issues, relationship dramas, and fear He s not only a relatable character, but a charismatic, multifaceted, and likable character as well If you enjoy anything by John Grishman, JP Delaney s Believe Me, or Jennifer Hillier s Jar of Hearts, I think you d love The Last Act It s a whirlwind of thrills from start to finish, and it gives the viewers a peek about our criminal justice system and how crime against drug offenses are possibly being handled in our society today I hope to see of Tommy Jump, and I hope
