The Homelanders 2: The Long Way Home by Andrew Klavan.

This book is the second in a series, and I gave it a rating of five out of five. You'll need to read book one first. Charlie West is still on the run, and he returns to his hometown to figure out the memories he's forgotten over the past year. He knows he's been convicted of killing his former best friend, Alex, he escaped from prison, and the Homelanders are trying to kill him. The Homelanders is a terrorist group trying to stop American democracy. He doesn't remember anything between leaving Alex in the park and escaping from prison one year later. In this book, he's reunited with his group of friends and discovers that he actually started dating the girl of his dreams. She lets him know that they grew very close, but he still doesn't remember any of it. Charlie is afraid that his friends may be in danger as they help him, and he's right. The police almost capture him a couple of times, but the Homelanders just want him dead. In the end, Charlie discovers a great deal about the past year and finds out the identity of the person who actually killed Alex. However, the Homelanders aren't finished searching for Charlie.

This book has a lot of action. The book opens with several men trying to kill Charlie. There are many fight scenes against the Homelanders and many chase scenes involving the police. It was nice to see Charlie's friends become more involved in the plot. I was surprised at how much information was shared about Charlie's past. The author shared most of the details about Alex's murder and more facts about the Homelanders' plans. A secret member of the terrorist group was revealed, but it was a surprise only because it was so obvious.
