Neal Maven comes home from his tour in Iraq to nothing--no job, no friends, no future. Then he meets Brad Royce, a fellow vet, charismatic and confident, with the lifestyle and the one woman Neal has always wanted: Danielle Vetti, Maven's high-school dream girl. Royce offers Maven a spot on his team of vets who intercept major drug deals, take the dirty money, and destroy the product--an adrenaline-charged, get-rich scheme with a clear moral imperative. But is it too good to be true? With two psychotic hit men out for retaliation, a relentless DEA agent closing in, and more questions than answers about Royce, Maven suddenly finds he's in too deep--and the truth may be his worst enemy.

Delivering "heart-stopping intensity" ( San Francisco Chronicle ) in all of his novels of suspense, Chuck Hogan nails a terrifying criminal underworld of lethal violence and complex friendships, loves, and rivalries in Devils in Exile .

An excellent and very realistic book. I couldn't put it down.
This is a natural for an action movie.

War vet Neal Maven returns home to Boston with nothing going for him in his life. After foiling a parking lot robbery one night, he is contacted by fellow vet Brad Royce (who is a cross between Gordon Gecko and Tyler Durden), and receives a tempting offer to join his band of fellow vets who rob drug dealers and destroy their products. Maven eventually gets more than he bargained for when he falls for Royce's girlfriend, encounters a DEA agent on their case, including two Jamaican hit men sent to find his team by the dealers, and starts to discover what Brad Royce really is...
