Fast and furious! What a great 1st time around with Lawson Raines. If you want entertainment at it's finest you must read this book. I'm already hooked on Bradley Wright's Xander King, so here I go again with a new addiction; Lawson Raines. Just remember that I warned you!!!!!!

Lawson Raines goes to jail for 10 years for killing his wife. When he gets out he has one thing in mind prove he did not kill her and get his daughter back. Read this book and take a wild ride with Lawson Raines. I hope there will be more books in this series.

I’m a fan of revenge stories. I love Man on Fire and The Punisher. One of my favorite books is Without Remose by Tom Clancy and a huge fan of the Mitch Rapp series. When the Man Comes Around has definitely earned its place in those hallowed halls for me. I am a big fan of Bradley’s Xander King series and I wasn’t sure how Lawson would match up. I can definitely say that he matched up completely. I highly recommend this book to people who really enjoy good storytelling, Bradley Wright just gets better and better.

Thought the intro for this book had the right appeal to peak my interest BUT plot was weak. Too much effort and words in fights and chase scenes. All that describing detailed information was way way not interesting. opinion only.......

I'm a big fan of the author's writing; and totally enjoyed this new book. From the character development to the non-stop action, it's a hard one to put down. There's more depth in the backstory, which flows in nicely. As with the Xander King series, this one is not to be missed.
I received an ARC for an honest review, which was easy to do on this one.

Lawson Raines had it all with his beautiful wife and daughter. That all changed one sunny day at the lake. He stands falsely accused of a heinous crime against his family that he didn’t commit. Jailed, stripped of his job as an FBI agent, humiliated, and baffled as to how it all happened, he plots. He’ll find the truth and serve up his own style of justice. This book is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller. Hold on for the ride.

I received an advanced copy of this book for review by the author.

Buckle up... this adrenaline filled book just does not stop. Wright hits another home run with this one and continues to produce characters that draw you into their world, hand you a weapon and say “follow me”.

WARNING - don’t start this book late in the day.... you won’t want to stop.

Bradley once again out done himself! Once you start to read this book you don’t want to put it down! Bradley’s new character, Lawson Raines is as action packed as you would expect him to be, if you have read any of his books! I encourage any and everyone to read Bradley Wright’s books, Xander King series, and now Lawson Raines! If you like action, suspense, and just a great read than his books are for you! Thanks, Bradley, for such great entertainment in your books and characters! Keep them coming, my friend!

A new character from Bradley Wright, much more interesting than his Xander King series. An interesting read, lots of action, flawed characters with issues, and a plot that keeps you guessing most of the time. I like it!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Fast paced story; Lawson Raines is a likable but shady character. Never know what he will do next. But always with intentions of getting Lexi back and proving that he was not guilty of murder and didn’t deserve to be in prison; and finding out who was guilty of committing the crime for which he was sentenced, seeking his revenge, be it legal or not.

This book catches your attention right from the start and doesn’t let go until the very end but leaves you wondering where his next story starts.

When the man comes around was a fast paced page turner. I was shocked in from the first page. A ride with lots of twists that you don't see coming. get ready for an emotional heart felt story of a man whose life was stolen. Bradley Wright is my new FAVORITE author.

Thank you Mr. Wright for giving us the reader, another great character to enjoy reading about! I have read all the books in the Xander King series and have enjoyed reading them immensely. Keep up the great writing!

I truly appreciate enjoyed this book! The characters are realistic and the plot sucked me in, right from the beginning all the way to the end! Can’t wait to see what else is in store from Bradley Wright!

Bradley has done it again!!! From the very first page, you are drawn into Lawson's world. When the Man Comes Around is a gripping on the edge of your seat read!! Can't wait for the next installment of Lawson's story!!!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I received an ARC of "When the Man Comes Around" and I could not wait to "turn" the pages on my tablet. His first chapter makes quite an impression, luring you to read more...and wanting more! It's filled with action, adventure, and emotion. This book will put you in the middle of Lawson's life as it unfolds. Cheers to the beginning of a new favorite author for you, too!

Bradley Wright has yet another winner!! In addition to the Xander King series he now has Lawson Raines!!! A true badass when necessary but also with a conscience and a deep sense of right and wrong. From the very beginning it’s action packed and doesn’t slow down throughout the entire book. This is a book you will not want to put down. Can’t wait for the next one!!!

Thus was essentially a 50 page novella stretched out via the use of every cliche and/or metaphor contained in the "crime writers handbook". After realizing that there was a good reason why this book was free, I would try to guess which of the aforementioned would be next in order to motivate myself to continue. By page 100 I was on target almost half the time. This review originally gave props to the author as a first effort. However. this is his latest book and I shudder to imagine how inane his previous offerings were. Save yourself and don't bother.

Once you pick it up impossible to put down. From start to finish this book was a thriller ride. Action around every corner and turn. Bradley has created a new hero for the ages. Look out X Man there is a new guy on the block. Great new book by a fantastic author. If you love action this is a book for you.

Raines is vastly different than Xander King.

Lawson Raines is a former FBI agent, now ex-con who has spent ten years in prison preparing himself physically to exact revenge on those who tore his family from him.

The action never stops with multiple mob families, the police and the FBI coming for him the moment he walked out of the prison gates.

I really enjoyed reading When The Man Comes Around, can’t wait for book 2.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Action, pathos, suspense, even some humor -- "The Man Comes Around" has it all. Wright has created a worthy companion to his Xander King novels. Set aside some time to read before you start this book; you won't want to stop reading for anything short of the end of the world.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading. Had to keep turning the pages because it was always action filled. Looking forward to the coming books as I hope they are already in the works. A great addition to Xander King.
★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆
Shallow characters and shallower, utterly predictable if overly unrealistic plot - can only have been churned out (I'm reluctant to say written!) in hopes of a quick movie deal even though mindless violent action films like it would have to be have been out of vogue for decades.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Non stop action - Don't mess with a man's family!! Great character development, some great twists and turns, fast read, you just don't want to put this book down until it's finished!! Also take a look at Bradley Wright's other book series - Xander King - give it a try and you'l be hooked!! Highly recommend!!

Exciting thriller. Lots of action. Characters you want to root for. A great read that is hard to put down. Do yourself a favor and get this book. This is a great new series to add to your library. And if you haven't read Bradley Wright's Xander King series, you need is fantastic as well.

When the Man Comes Around is action packed from start to finish! Lawson Raines is my new favorite character.....I can't wait to see what he does next! If you haven't read Bradley Wright, you are missing out! This is a must read for summer......and don't forget to check out his Xander King series!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I absolutely loved this book! I have read all of his other books, and Bradley Wright has become one of my favorite authors! This book had me from the Prologue, and I couldn’t put it down. The twists and turns that I did not see coming had me intrigued until the very end! If you love edge of your seat, nail biting intrigue, this book is a must read! Great job, Mr. Wright!

Bradley Wright does it again in this action packed page turner! You will feel like you are right in the book fighting for justice alongside Lawson Raines. I couldn’t put the book down and neither will you. A must read! Can not wait for the next book in this series!

When Jason Bourne meets Johnny Cash. Lawson Raines is the new action hero we need. After wrongly accused of the murder of his wife, he spends the next ten years planning his revenge. Bradley Wright has given us a new character that makes it a chore to put the book down. Well written and completely addicting. You will not be disappointed.

I got thru the book. There was a lot of action but the story and characters are very unremarkable. There are a thousand of other books just like it with different titles and authors. Best part of the book? It was a free read from the store.

This book was great, not a moment in it that wasn't action packed and full of suspense as to what would happen next. When the man comes around was my first book that I had read by Bradley Wright and since finishing this one I have read every book in his Xander series. Hands down my new favorite author and I'm impatiently waiting for more.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This book was a lot of fun and a real great read. Much like Bradley’s other books, it’s engaging and a real page turner. The new characters are awesome and I’m looking forward to future adventures. I would highly recommend this book.

Bradley Wright has created another spell binding character in Lawson Raines. This book will grab you from the first sentence and keep you turning pages long into the night. A can’t put it down book that will leave you with just one question when you finish, When will the next book be out?

Great new character and awesome story. Non-stop action from the beginning sets this character up to be just as good as Wright's Xander series. Looking forward to seeing what is next adventure for Lawson and crew.

Another great read by an up & coming author! His Xander King series has kept me waiting for the next installment since it came out and this does also. Plenty of action as he tears his way through those standing in his way. I hope you love it as much as I did!

This book started off at full steam and didn't let up the entire book. To say that it is a riviting page-turner would be an understatement. I highly recommend giving it a read, it will not disappoint.

Started okay, I thought maybe like two stars and a beach read when you don't have anything else. Had to labor through few chapters but have up before it even reached the middle of the book, life's too short to read books that bad. It's not totally garbage but it's such a cliche - almost super spy story. He is the one that always is smarter than anybody else. He plays people, reads their minds. And so many other things. Sorry don't waste your time on this

Fantastic!!! This book grips you right from the start and doesn't let go!! I couldn't put the book down and there were twists and turns that I didn't see coming. Bradley Wright did it again... An awesome read! I can't wait for the next book!

At this point maybe I shouldn’t be surprised. Bradley’s work is consistently unique story to story yet the same elements keep me coming back. This one is a pretty different read than Xander, and I loved every page of it. More please....please?

I'm sorry, but I don't understand all the positive reviews. I thought things started out promising but then just got so ridiculous and unbelievable. I like fiction where the action is believable. So tired of "mob" involvement too. Found the writing shallow, amateurish, and couldn't care less about the characters. Not giving this writer another chance.

When the man comes around is an action packed heartbreaking sensitive real story that would make you laugh and cry but very smartly told from one of our best storyteller lately, I personally totally enjoyed it and I hope you do too,very well worth the time

This is a great book for the anyone who likes the jack reacher, Xander king series will thoroughly love this book, I can’t wait to read the next Lawson Raines book. The characters in this book are well developed you can feel what the characters feel. Just an awesome book!

An incredible read! The plot hooks you from the very beginning and you will not be able to stop reading until you have turned the last page. Bradley Wright deserves to be mentioned along side Flynn, Thor, Child & Baldacci.

I have really gotten hooked on Bradley Wright’s books and his new series featuring Lawson Raines is incredible. I couldn’t put this book down and loved all the action and twists he led us through. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t read his books yet!!

Bradley Wright has done it again! When the Man Comes Around had me me from page 1! Lawson Raines is a man you want to cry for but he’s not asking for anything but revenge. This is a fast paced page turner with a new twist on every page. Great summer read.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Great story! First book in the new series. Bradley Wright does a great job of bringing action and emotion to the reader. Once you start reading you can’t put it down. Lawson Raines is a strong character can’t wait to see what’s in store for him in the next book!!

Hmmm. I get that our boy enjoys air conditioning, head butting (his default in a fight) and he's a Jack Reacher clone. The repeated close calls and escapes were silly and finally, he and his partner give up their weapons. This falls into the catagorie of a guy who thinks he can write common, hackneyed thrillers and the best he can turn out is this mindless bumwad.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Couldn't stop reading this book! You don't even realize the pages keep turning and all of a sudden you notice you are halfway through this book. Action packed! Plot twists and turns! Bradley Wright has done an excellent job with this one!
