About this Book
Everything he learned to protect our president, he must use to take out theirs.
With an American president distracted by growing tensions in North Korea and Iran, an ominous new threat is emerging in Moscow. A czar is rising in the Kremlin, a Russian president feverishly consolidating power, silencing his opposition, and plotting a brazen and lightning-fast military strike that could rupture the NATO alliance and bring Washington and Moscow to the brink of nuclear war. But in his blind spot is the former U.S. Secret Service agent, Marcus Ryker, trained to protect but ready to kill to save his country.
Honestly, this was a hard read for me. Early on in the book the author would jump between characters and timeframes that I found confusing. I struggled keeping track of who was who and their significance. Likewise, the story at times seemed to drag on. Please note I reviewed an unedited advanced reader copy, some of the “slow” parts may have been cleaned up for final publication.
For me, a big problem was I didn’t start caring about the main character until near the end of the story. If I had related to him more earilier maybe I would have enjoyed the story, not sure.
For people who like Jason Bourne type stories you would probably enjoy this book. Lots of action especially in the final section, although in my mind somewhat unrealistic. (Hence the Jason Bourne reference)
Based on the ending, I’m guessing this is a book one, otherwise the author is cruel.
Although, I wasn’t crazy about this book, I might read book two but I would definitely read another book by this author.
Dislaimer: I did receive this book from the publisher but was not required to give a review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
