Read Every Day Above Ground (Van Shaw #3) Online Free - A favor for a dying ex-con turns into a violent battle against a mysterious enemy for Van Shaw in this emotionally powerful and gritty thriller from the award-winning author of Past Crimes and Hard Cold Winter
It sounds like a thief’s dream to Van Shaw: A terminally-ill ex-con tells him of an easy fortune in gold, abandoned and nearly forgotten after its original owner died in prison. For the dying man, the money is a legacy to ensure his pre-teen daughter’s future. For Van, the gold is cash he desperately needs to rebuild his destroyed family home.
The grandson of a career criminal who taught him all the tricks of his trade, Van suspects that nothing is ever that easy. Sure enough, the safe holding the fortune is a trap—set by a mysterious player armed with tremendous resources and a lifetime of hatred. Now, Shaw’s partner is in the clutches of the hunters, and the former Army Ranger may be their next prey. But when the ex-con’s innocent daughter is threatened too, Van’s own hard childhood means he can’t let her come to harm.
To discover who has them in the cross-hairs, Shaw must seek out the hunters’ real prey. His quest leads him from an underground bare-knuckle fighting ring, which may be fronting a darker purpose, to a massive pop-culture convention, where Van and his allies, Hollis and Corcoran, play a dangerous game with foes on every side. It also introduces Van to a brash and beautiful aspiring journalist who poses a whole different kind of personal risk.
For years, Van Shaw has tried to live every day above ground, on the right side of the law, even though crime is his gift . . . and in his blood. If he survives the coming storm, he’ll have to decide what he wants—and whether he can live as an outlaw without sacrificing his honor.

A disappointing follow-up to Past Crimes, this crime novel set in Seattle suffers from a confused plot with implausible characters and situations.

Hamilton is now one of my favorite authors. Not only does he place his stories in one of my favorite cities, but he has developed one of the most interesting characters in modern day fiction in Van Shaw. We learn a lot more about him in this 3rd book in the series. The plot was far more intricate...

4.25 Stars I really enjoy this series. Van Shaw learned how to pick locks, crack safes and engage in high end thievery as a child from his grandfather and ultimate guardian. Each book so far has flashbacks to Van's childhood and relationship with his grandfather that sets the tone for who Van is....

I received this book from Goodreads in exchange for a review.
When a favor for a dying ex-con goes horribly wrong, Van Shaw finds himself up to his neck in trouble. Even worse, he has no real idea who the bad guys are and what they want. Van wants to live on the right side of the law, but each day...

This might be the best fiction I've read thus far in 2017. First, I enjoy novels staged in Seattle, one of my favorite cities. Second, Hamilton's imaginative characters are off-beat and eminently likable. Finally, his plots are elegantly layered ... like a game plan for three-dimensional chess. A...

Glen Erik Hamilton knows how to keep you hooked from the very first page. The story is suspenseful and moves along at a nice clip. I found myself cheering for Van Shaw again as I did in the first two books. Great character development for the starring and secondary cast. Once again, I recommend t...
