Mortal Dilemma by H, Terrell Griffin (A Matt Royal Mystery #10)
Jock Algren arrives on Longboat Key in a state of depression and hopelessness. His most recent mission for his secretive U.S. government intelligence agency has been disastrous, and his friends Matt Royal and J. D. Duncan aren’t sure they’ll be able to pull him out of his despair—then the bad guys show up and danger erupts on all fronts.
Longboat Key Detective J. D. Duncan is investigating a cold case when the brother of the victim shows up on the island and complicates the investigation. A grizzled sailor—described by Matt as “the meanest man I’d ever known”—brings his boat into a local marina and bodies begin to accumulate. A Middle East jihadist intent on revenge locks on to Jock’s clandestine past, bringing a deadly chase to the last outpost in the continental U.S.—Key West. Three prongs of evil descend, clashing violently. How could all this malice be interconnected?

My review: Mortal Dilemma by H, Terrell Griffin (A Matt Royal Mystery #10)
This is back to Matt fighting bad guys with guns not law. Though Jock is not up to do anything much except drink. Somebody is trying to kill JD.
Matt Royal is a retired lawyer who lives on Longboat Key FL His girl friend is J.D. She is a Police detective.
J.D. is working a 3 year old murder case when someone tries to kill her.
Jock works for a secret agency he can call the President up. He is sent in to kill bad guys. He has no family but considers Matt family and best friend.
Mortal Dilemma deals a lot with how the different characters feel about killing bad guys. Jock can't do it anymore.
Lots of action, drama, humor and violence. There are terrorists trying to make Jock suffer like he made them suffer by taking out there father.
The setting in this book is Florida key Islands.
I like Matt Royal Mysteries and look forward to reading more of them in the future.
I was given this ebook from NetGalley and Oceanview Publisher. In return I agreed to give a honest review of Mortal Dilemma.
