    1. Wow This was quite a page turner It moved fast and furious I love the idea of having your son and daughter strapped into your back seat as you crash through the garage door while shooting out the window as your wife calmly reloads your weapons Way to liven up suburbia This book reminded me a lot of Taken, except with younger kids I sure hope Mr Gischler comes out with another


    2. I must say that it sort of bugs me that everything I read about this book mentions the deal with CBS for the rights I m happy for Gischler, but that doesn t make me want to read it or less Still, Stay can at times seem like a really thorough pitch for a movie deal.Beyond that I was a little disappointed Gischler takes so many suspense novel mainstays the special ops guy with a troubled past forced into violence to protect his family, the paranoid old service buddy who s an expert hacker and wil [...]


    3. This book was recommended to me by a friend here and it s a good read.Our protagonist David Sparrow is a stay at home dad He s on, extended leave from an SOG and sort of in limbo about that This does not however keep him from being a dynamite stay at home parent.Then his wife a prosecutor gets involved in a case that puts a target on her and then by extension the kids.And as we expected from page one David needs to draw on his experience to save them and put an end to the threat.There s plenty o [...]


    4. There are some books that are like 30 year old single malt, that need to be savored Other books, like Victor Gischler s STAY, are like caramel corn and need to be devoured quickly and without thinking In terms of a light summer read, an addictive thriller, STAY cannot be beat The action is non stop, the characters implausible but knowable even the villains , and the resolution deeply satisfying The pages flew by quickly and each chapter leaves you wanting At the novel s conclusion you still wan [...]


    5. 3.5 stars The cover of this book doesn t do it service, I have to say Although predictable, this is a heart pounding thriller with a dash of family fun two things that don t usually go together but there we go The premise is a great idea for a TV show, which is why I wasn t surprised that the rights has been sold to CBS.


    6. David Sparrow is not your ordinary Mr Mom Sure, he does the job with great dexterity He gets the kids to school right on time, makes perfect pancakes, and does the housework according to a precise schedule But that s not what makes him different Because the real David Sparrow is not just some suburban schlub He s a Black Ops warrior, one of the Army s best.Sparrow is a man with complex and deadly skills And he s going to need every one of those skills when his wife finds herself in the crosshair [...]


    7. High 3 low 4 stars The early chapters leading you to believe David is a regular stay at home dad are misleading David s a former bad ass temporarily sidelined by the higher ups Bad guys come his way, specifically way of his family, and Mr Mom goes to the backburner and Jason Bourne Mitch Rapp come to the forefront.I ve never read anything by VG before so I had no idea what to expect It was an easy, quick, yet entertaining read David was definitely a bad ass with the help of his trusty sidekick, [...]


    8. A story of David Sparrow, a stay at home dad, who looked after the two children while wife Amy, a deputy district attorney, went to work.It s only when Amy s current case, a crime boss, threatens the family that we learn David is much He s on a forced leave from his army assignment to recover He s not the supply clerk even his wife believes, but a deep cover agent that handles only the tough, dangerous assignments.David takes the fight to the enemy who knows not what they ve unleashed Well, one [...]


    9. David Sparrow is a stay at home dad, a job which other guys find really amusing But when David s family is threatened by a truly nasty crime boss and a figure from his violent past, everyone, including Mrs Sparrow, discovers there s a lot to him than they ever suspected Quick, fast moving, relentless action makes this book nearly impossible to put down I finished it in a day because I was so wrapped up in it Highly recommended.


    10. Solid story It took a few chapters to warm up, but once it got started, it was really good I ve read most of this author s books and have enjoyed all of them He is an excellent prose writer, so his stories are clear and interesting.


    11. Not a bad read at all Potential good series Very similar to Lee Child s Jack Reacher novels If you like Reacher, you ll enjoy this one.


    12. Another enjoyable thriller Very fast moving.David Sparrow is an awesome stay at home dad He gets his kids ready for school while his wife, Amy, commutes to New York City, where she is an Assistant District Attorney She just inherited a major case prosecuting crime lord Dante Payne Meanwhile, David is content chatting with the moms at school drop off, and doing housework.One night, David is awoken by a sound downstairs, and discovers a man in Amy s office, going through her work documents Instinc [...]


    13. David Sparrow, stay at home dad with a murky US Army past, is married to a newly appointed deputy district attorney for a large Eastern city When her prosecution of a notorious crime lord brings criminal retribution into their lives, David shows how murky his past was by going into action as a one man killing machine Despite the odds, DAvid has the edge because of what he did for a living.The writing is crisp and direct The action is non stop The plotting is predictable but serviceable As books [...]


    14. This book is an attention grabber, full of action and very quick reading The main character, a stay at home dad, with a history of working to stop deadly criminals, a history that even his wife doesn t know about, is forced to utilize his skills in protecting his own family This would probably make a popular R rated film with Jason Statham or Mark Wahlberg in the starring role But a literary event, it is not There isn t much character development or plot creativity, for those who want that Perha [...]


    15. David Sparrow seems to be an unassuming stay at home dad on indefinite leave from his pencil pushing job with the army David s wife Amy is the newly appointed deputy district attorney for Manhattan When Amy inherits a major case, prosecuting crime lord Dante Payne everything changes Dante kills Amy s prime witness and then goes after Amy herself In order to protect his family David reverts to his previous secret and hidden persona a highly trained special operative with a deadly skill set David [...]


    16. One of the few times I d have to say I was disappointed by a Victor Gischler book Stale and tired compared to Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse, or Gun Monkeys, Stay should have been called I m Ripping Off Liam Neeson Movies.The body count piles higher and deeper every chapter of Stay, while the characters remain flat, and the potential remains unrealized I was hoping for so much than a cardboard action hero, leave the little woman at home while I fight the bad guys treatment.This one felt uninspir [...]


    17. Reading this book was like watching a fast paced Liam Neeson movie, without Neeson So the dad is on RR from his super secret military job tell ya, kill ya kind of job and his wife is the new assistant district attorney what could go wrong Bad guys all over the place, threatening his family, so super Dad goes into action, getting help from a couple of folks who worked with him in the old days It s ridiculously over the top killing bad guys while on the run from the cops, but I finished it in less [...]


    18. 4.5 stars to be accurate Was really enjoyable, fast paced, intense at times I ve never been big on car chase scenes in books or movies but found a scene in this one had me gripped I ve read a few of Gischler s books Shotgun Opera being my favourite and if you are a fan of his other novels then you will no doubt enjoy this one.


    19. Liked it a lot Non stop action Lots of thrills and made me stay up late and wake up early to finish A departure from Gischler s previous work A bit traditional than I expected The writing was excellent This would be a great starting point if you have never read him before I m a huge fan of all of his previous work.


    20. Intriguing premise, non stop pace, action galore and an ever twisting plot Echoes of DIE HARD in some scenes The satisfactory conclusion still opens a wormy can of sequel potential Gischler usually infuses his work with touches of quirkiness and humor but this was a fairly straightforward action thriller.


    21. I haven t read a thriller in a while, if ever, which was nice to change things up a bit I liked the story, reminded me of Mysteries of Laura, but it didn t grab my attention all the way and I predicted how it would end before I even got there.


    22. This book seemed to exist primarily to showcase the protagonist s presumed skills in special ops There was very little character development to make much of the book believable I was disappointed.


    23. While this book started out slowly and had a cardboard character or two, the main character was so likeable that I found myself reading all the way through with enjoyment.



    24. David Sparrow didn t set out to be a stay at home dad But after being set on hiatus from the Army that is just what he is And he is ok with it His wife Amy has just been promoted to Assistant Deputy Prosecutor And because of a case their family had become a target Years in the Army have served David well, and prepared him for this fight A quick, fast and action filled story.


    25. Great light read Enjoyed the characters, although pretty violent at times Different book than my usual I liked it.


    26. It s fast paced and action packed but also very implausible I chose it because I loved Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse, but this book didn t live up to Gischler s others.



    27. Former military solo ops specialist turned househusband goes on the offensive when his wife s life is threatened at her work in an incident that left a coworker hospitalized and a star witness dead For Assistant DA, Amy Sparrow, the loss of the witness is in some way worse than the threat to her own life Her case against notorious criminal Dante Payne now in tatters needs something dramatic to turn the tide David, having been on the sidelines on indefinite leave for too long has a mission other [...]


    28. Very fun and intense book about a stay at home dad who is actually special forces but is on medical leave for mental issues His wife is a lawyer and just taken over a big case against a crime boss His wife thinks he is a pencil pusher in the army.A quick book that fly s by once you pick it up I liked the main character and will have to read from the author.
