Meanwhile, Jack’s wife, Niki, an attorney with her own firm, is traveling to a funeral after the death of a client’s young daughter, who had been on a new drug. Niki is handling a class-action lawsuit against Andover Pharmaceuticals, who are manufacturing a drug which is supposed to save the lives of children with leukemia, like the young girl who just died. Instead, it seems to be hastening their deaths. However, the owners of Andover Pharmaceuticals are wealthy and well-connected, so Niki is having a problem with finding justice for the victims and she is beginning to lose hope.
Jack and his fellow vigilantes have just completed a mission against some corrupt slumlords. Now, with Niki out of state, Jack and his crew are ready to take on a new mission against Andover Pharmaceuticals. As they set out to provide the Andovers with their own taste of medicine, Bolo is under time constraints. Niki is making her way home and the mission must be completed before she discovers their involvement in it. Will the members of BOLO be able to do what Niki has been unable to do so far and provide justice for the victims of the unscrupulous, greedy pharmaceutical company, or will they be caught in their own trap?
Suspense-filled, TAKE DOWN, the third part of author Fern Michaels’ THE MEN OF THE SISTERHOOD serial, is an exciting, edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense that will keep you enthralled. The men and the women of the Sisterhood are still working out their personal differences at being separated so much, but right now they have to concentrate on stopping the company that is killing off children with their new drug. What better time to do it than right at Christmas. With glitches, such as the bad weather, thrown in, Jack and his crew must stay on their toes as they battle a powerful foe.
Complex, well-drawn characters, a captivating plot, unscrupulous villains that you can’t help hating, plenty of action and escalating suspense, combined with a bit of romance, make this story an absolute delight. After reading all three parts of this serial, I hated to see it end. I really enjoyed the entire serial and can’t wait to see what Ms. Michaels comes up with next. This story is not a standalone. For all the dynamics and backstory behind BOLO, readers need to first read UPSIDE DOWN and COUNTDOWN, in that order, before reading TAKE DOWN since it is a continuing saga.
