Dead Six reads like two books, by two authors one writing each book, and the two are melted into one book. There is the "killer's" book and there is the "thief's book" both of which are happening at the same time and at the same place. Each character keeps getting in the way of the other and this is a pleasure for the reader. Each character is trying to solve a problem, one is overthrowing a government and the other is trying to steal a .... oh I don't know what it was he was trying to steal. Both story lines cross each other and are erily simular in characters in each book and in action.
As for the reader, while this sounds confusing, this is all easy to follow and really keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. The main characters meet and try to kill each other or rather carve each other up. The two "goals" progress and digress and twist and keep you wondering what is going on and who is the "villian?"
There are beheadings, women gutted like a fish, shootings, beatings, revolutions, cons, bombs, tanks, ships, fanatics even show up for a minute or two, and a whole lot of killing. The book is straight forward and the authors play fair by not introducing at the last moment new twists or "out of the blue" shanagicans. As a matter of fact the last 150 pages or so are very satifing for the reader and the "twist" is an "oh yeah" moment.
Correia and Kupari are dead on with their guns and tactics. The battle scenes are believable and at times moving.Read more ›
First things first. Larry and Mike know their stuff. When it comes to shooting these guys know the in's and out's of proper firearm use. I believe both authors shoot competitively. Then throw in Larry's experience as the owner of a gun store, and Mike's army training. So while some of the action sequences may be incredible the action always reads as believable if not entirely realistic. The story itself is broken up into two perspectives. One perspective is told from the ex-mercenary Constantine Michael Valentine, a somewhat jaded young man trying to lead a normal life despite his deadly skill set. The other perspective is that of thief and assassin extraordinaire Lorenzo. Both find themselves neck deep in trouble in the fictional Middle Eastern country of Zubara. For Valentine trouble is the elite black ops counter terrorist group Dead Six. For Lorenzo trouble is infiltrating a terrorist organization for the ultimate heist. Both characters find themselves with opposing objectives and end up clashing, each characters actions having direct or indirect consequences for the other.Read more ›
The story switches between two point of view characters with the threads of the story getting pulled tighter and tighter and as the plot tapestry emerges. It ends with a bit of a cliffhanger ending - I hope we get the next book soon! The book is a great thriller with a small dash of alternative history and a pinch supernatural thriller thrown in.
Highly recommended for fans of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Matthew Reilly or James Rollins.

Enjoyed this book as much as the MHI series. Didn't too much care for the character written by Mike Kupari. His character's story was still entertaining. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Somebody else...

The only problem I had was that in the prologue the use of multiple first person viewpoints threw me. I didn't catch when they switched between Valentine and Lorenzo. Read morePublished 4 months ago by David L. Burkhead
