Long Walk Home by Don Helin is an exciting thriller full of action, intrigue, and a smidgen of mystery that’s altogether riveting, as it follows an unusual character in his quest for the truth about his father’s death. It’s been thirty years since Colonel Zack Kelly’s father, who was an NYPD cop, was shot and killed by drug dealers. While on a trip to New York City, the Colonel is looking forward to meeting his daughter, Laura, and investigating his father’s death, a man who had been branded a dirty cop. But things don’t turn out to be as simple as he had thought and he soon finds himself embroiled in a network of corruption that may go as high up as the New York City Police Commissioner. It won’t be long before Zack and his friend, who tries to offer help, find themselves in very tight and dangerous spots, and what has the ex-military group called the Forgotten Warriors to do with all this?

Don Helin has written an unpredictable and compulsively readable story that will have readers on the edge of their seats, blending sleuth with mystery and creating an exciting romp that is irresistible. I enjoyed the fact that the story is balanced, original, and fast-paced. The characters are well developed, written with good backstory and very likeable. The author creates a sense of urgency in the narrative that pushes the reader to watch out for their favorite character. Its fast action coupled with the realism in the narrative make Long Walk Home a hard to put down story. It’s an interesting and enjoyable read.
