"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 was recently promoted to Deputy District Attorney. In fact, she just inherited a major case: prosecuting crime lord Dante Payne. Meanwhile, David is content chatting with the moms at school drop-off, making dinner at night, and doing housework. But when Dante Payne takes the fight directly to Amy, attacking her where she lives, David is forced to "reactivate" himself, revealing a history and deadly skill set his wife knew nothing about. And he'll do anything to protect his family. Part Taken, part First Blood, Stay is an action-packed, often hilarious, and hugely entertaining suburban thriller"-- Provided by publisher.

Nothing special but worth a quick read. Fast paced with lots of action. CBS has bought the rights.

Reading this book was like watching a fast-paced Liam Neeson movie, without Neeson. So the dad is on "R&R" 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 than 2 days, so I guess it was compelling, huh? I admit it, it was fun to read.
