For heaven’s sake all he has to do is creep up behind the guy, bump him off, making it look like a mugging gone wrong which he could have achieved by chapter 7. Job done… move on.
Sorry I found this a page-turner for the wrong reasons as I ended up skipping entire chapters and still nowt of substance had happened.
The book does improve a touch after chapter 16.
If you are a fan of Jason Bourne or Jack Reacher style books then this one will be right up your street. The main protagonist is Nathan Stone, an ex-military man who has definitely stood on some toes and made some very powerful enemies. These enemies have hit Nathan hard when they kidnap his sister and use her in a blackmail attempt.
The scenarios that play out are fast paced, violent and action-packed and I really liked the variety in these scenarios as they were not too samey or stereotypical. They were used in such a way as to keep the speed of the read at a breakneck tempo.
With Nathan being backed into a corner he comes out fighting and kicking, stabbing… I think you get the idea. Yes, he is a man who has gone rogue there is no argument about that, but underneath this dangerous exterior there resides a man who has a soul and morals but only towards those who deserve them.
As I mentioned this is fast paced and if you are someone who likes mysteries, corruption and double dealings then this is a great book to read. I have bought the first so I can back track to learn more about the origins and what makes this character tick and look forward to reading more in the series.
One I would definitely recommend to readers.
Nathan isn’t the man he used to be and decides to rescue his sister and his target Mark Mahoney who is a New York Times reporter who is close to writing a story the Commission don’t want published. Things escalate and Nathan is as deadly as ever before taking very few prisoners and from the first page you are taken into his world the dark world of assassins. It also shows two sides to the story of the hunted and the hunter, brilliant.
I recommend this book by J.B. Turner and others in this series as it is a great gripping read that you won’t put down!
I'm going to stick with it because I enjoy the style but Reacher, Hope, Reznick he is not.
