What a Story. Even explains and joins all the dots leading to the TWIN TOWERS and 911. How it started and ended. Even theorizing it to its conclusion. Well written and rivetting action. Not to forget the bio-WEAPON in todays date. What with COVID 19 being called a BW as well. For all readers who gravitate towards THRILLERS, this is a story to TOP all. JACK CARR is the Man.
I am an avid fan of this author . The book I received had pages 303 to 335 missing which actually is quite upsetting considering one has reached 300 + pages and this really ruins the value of the book and ales for bad publicity
James Reece is the new jack reacher. The author jack carr is a former U S Navy seal. He is a fantastic author who's knowledge of tradecraft and military tactics is second to none. Read all his books in order if you can..it will give your the whole back story then. I don't post a lot of reviews, but I feel I would be doing the world a disservice if I didn't introduce this character and jack Carr into your library. Once you pick them up, you won't put them down. Great podcast for Jack Carr too, if you want to see and hear the man behind the books.
This book is frightening in showing how extremely vulnerable we have become (I’m reading it in 2023 while America has become the laughing stock of the world with a president who can’t even read a teleprompter). The country is being run by the weakest, dumbest administration in history who push idiotic agendas and tear the country apart from inside. We need men like James Reece in the real world.
Don't get me wrong, I love Jack Carr. HIs first two books were utterly outstanding. Great characters, great plots (though the first book was very similar to a 1990's book called Vertical Run) and hard-to-put-down. Lots of good 'gear' stuff, too. Being a former SEAL, the author is well-plugged-in to lots of companies run by former Team Members... so fans of Half Face Blades Knives, Resco Watches and lots of other cool stuff will find their favorite gear well-covered.
By this book, however, I sort of found the books had gone more 'Mack Bolan" and less Tom Clancy or John LeCarre. I like a good cerebral thriller and at a certain point, this book crossed more into the 'gratuitious violence' instead of great plot that characterized his earlier books.
For those who like his earlier books in particular, check out James Stejskal's series of books based on the Detachment A, Berlin Special Forces. Stejskal's books, along with Carr's early books, are some of the best reads since the early days of Tom Clancy and, well, almost everything by Frederick Forsythe.
That said, I read it with gusto and can't wait for the next one. Carr is in the big leagues among military thriller authors these days. So I'll put up with a big of "John Wick and Rambo" because, well, it is good escapism!
