Breakout is the debut thriller from author Paul Herron that will make you feel like you’re in a Jack Reacher book/movie. Jack Constantine is an ex-police officer who is in prison for killing one of his pregnant wife’s killers. After three years in the slammer, there is a hurricane warning for not one, but two, hurricanes that are about to collide. The prison officers go to escape accidentally leaving the rookie, Keira Sawyer, behind. It is up to Constantine, his cellmate Felix, and Sawyer, to find the way to safety. They must do this while traveling through the prison where dangerous criminals lurk everywhere with and without weapons.
Breakout is a rollercoaster of a ride. I could definitely see it being made into an action-packed movie. The author does a fantastic job of describing every move that Constantine makes and why so it feels as if you, as the reader, are right there alongside him as he climbs through flooded cells, dodges bullets, and deals with the mentally insane. A must-read for fans of Clancy, Patterson, and Child.
