BOOK REVIEW: CUTTHROAT
Cutthroat is the perfect title Steve Brewer’s newest book. Solomon Gage is a “troubleshooter” for billionaire Dominick Sheffield and his family. Cutthroat Lodge is next to the Mendocino National Park and the home of Dominick Sheffield. The Lodge is named after the cutthroat trout and is a wonderful place for fishing.
The book begins when Solomon Gage rescues Abby Maynes and his actions in doing so would certainly be considered cutthroat because Gage is not a man to let anyone stand in his way. Abby is Dom’s granddaughter and has fallen in with the wrong crowd. Gage checks Abby in at a place where she can be treated for her drug usage.
On their trip, Abby mumbles a mention of the “Africa deal”. As Gage attempts to find out more about the “Africa deal”, his troubles only increase. He finds that Dom’s sons have gotten involved in a project that would not meet Dom’s approval.
Dom has also instructed Gage to try to make some peace with Dom’s son Michael’s wife, Grace, who has decided to divorce him and has hired a cutthroat female attorney to handle the divorce. The attorney does not intend to pull any punches when it comes to revealing everything there is to know about Michael Sheffield and his family. This is one of the many chores that fall under Gage’s roll as troubleshooter.
The more Gage finds out about the divorce and the “Africa deal” the worse things get. Gage has lived with Dominick Sheffield since his mother died when he was very young. Will Dom remember all the loyalty that Gage has given him or choose to believe his sons when Gage begins to uncover what Michael and Chris Sheffield are trying to pull off behind their father’s back?
Cutthroat is a book that I did not want to put down until the final page. I would highly recommend it for a very exciting read. Solomon Gage is a wonderful character and I liked him very much.
