Members of the Del Rio drug cartel destroyed Elizabeth Sanchez's village seven years ago in an attempt to set an example for other towns that defied their brutal rule. All her family members perished that day except her. After learning that someone survived his vengeance-fueled massacre, Hector Suarez sets out to eliminate the last surviving Hernandez family member. Drew West, a writer suffering from severe writer's block, becomes entangled in this conflict when, while out hiking, he saves Elizabeth from Hector and his goons. Drew decides to protect this lovely girl at all costs, but before making such a risky move, the practical young man must banish some ghosts. Drew and Elizabeth are about to discover how determined Hector can be in H.L. Wegley's No Turning Back.

H.L. Wegley creates continuity in this installment of the Witness Protection series by subtly referencing the beginnings of Elizabeth and Hector's conflict, making it easier for readers to dive right into this gripping adventure. The narrative is simple to follow, and the fast pace evokes the sense of an end-to-end adventure where deft decision-making and astute puzzle-solving could mean the difference between life and death. Wegley emphasizes the value of Christian morality throughout the adventure; perhaps the most notable instance is the passionate scene involving Elizabeth and Drew, which culminates in their first kiss but ends before it gets too close for comfort for conservative readers. A remarkable amount of attention to detail is used in the fight scenes to make the entire adventure seem as realistic as possible. Wegley's clever use of wordplay, particularly with Drew's name and that of the ranch and the Dodge incident, lends a lighthearted tone to an action-packed novel. Action and adventure lovers will enjoy reading No Turning Back.
