The Forgotten: A Jon Dough Thriller written by Kevin Macklin was my first read by this author, I was glad to have discovered him because I feel like we need more black males writing in this genre. I dove into the book unjudging just waiting to see how the story would unfold and I was not disappointed. Kevin hooked me in from the very first paragraph. These truly are my types of books, the protagonists with a shaded past that lives by his own set of rules and has a moral code that he abides by no matter the outcome.
Overall it was a decent read, the only downfall for me as a reader was that I didn't know the race of the title character. Perhaps I overlooked that part or read too fast I don't remember him being described. I suppose it doesn't matter to some readers but for me, it took something away from the story.
Would I read another of Kevin's titles in the Jon Dough series? Most definitely! And I suggest others that are not hip to him do the same.
Bullet to the Heart is my second read by this author and I must admit that I enjoyed this one a lot better than the previous one that I read. The tale of a bad guy turned good, turned bad to seek revenge for the loss of a loved one is a familiar tale but Elijah does a good job having his go at it.
