This is the third novel in the JET series. The suggested reading order is:

JET
JET - Betrayal
JET - Vengeance
JET - Reckoning
JET - Legacy
JET - Justice
JET - Sanctuary

Q&A with Russell Blake

Q: JET has been a remarkably successful series. How many more books do you see with her?

RB: I originally envisioned it as a trilogy, but after finishing JET III, it was obvious to me that there would be at least one to two more. I really like her character, so I'm reluctant to see her story end. That's my long-winded way of saying I'll probably keep writing about her as long as readers want me to.

Q: How is JET III different than the first two books?

RB: I focused more on some of her non-traditional skills, like parkour. And I wanted to flesh out her emotional life a little, and give a sense of the person, not just the person involved in the action. I also tried to give her a sense of normalcy in her domestic situation, so she could bond with her loved ones and forge relationships and friendships.

Q: Some might think that the character of Jet is too over-blown, not realistic enough. What say you?

RB: I deliberately went overblown - unapologetically so. I wanted a protagonist the likes of a James Bond or a Lizbeth Salander - and let's face it, those are overblown characters. I think that as long as you're willing to go, "hell yeah she can do that...she's Jet!" you'll enjoy the books. Think Raiders of the Lost Ark - does anyone care if Indiana Jones is overblown? Not me. Goes with the territory. If you're looking for The English Patient, or Sophie's Choice, you'll be disappointed. I've written very realistic, gritty protags - Fatal Exchange's Tess, Geronimo Breach's Al, the Assassin series' Capt Cruz and El Rey, Silver Justice's Silver Cassidy...I didn't want to do a repeat, so I thought I'd go more over-the-top, kick-ass with Jet. I mean, just the name. Jet. Come on. She's got to be a bad-ass with a name like that.

Q: Let's go back to the parkour. Some of the scenes seem to have her defying the laws of physics.

RB: I provide some links at the back of the book to videos of some of the better parkour practitioners. I'd say anyone who thinks I'm exaggerating what these traceurs can do would be well-advised to watch those, in their entirety, and then we can talk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jet is a force of nature! November 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When it comes to action packed non-stop thrill rides, Blake is at the top of the food chain! I have not been able to put a Jet book down once I started reading it. True to his disclaimer, the Jet series contains characters and plots that many readers will deem unbelievable. But that is understandable due to the nature of covert ops.

As a gun enthusiast, I'm always excited when Jet opens her goodie bag and pulls out one of the latest toys of the industry. And the way Blake depicts black ops tradecraft is believable and convincing, even if there are a few super spies somewhere in the world shaking their head. One minor thing that irks me..and I hate being the guy that critiques my favorite writer's wordplay..but the use of "clips" when referring to a gun's magazines, or "mags" just bothers me. Even though the majority of readers most likely ignore it or. Sorry Russell. ;-)

Anyone whose read the other Jet titles obviously love the style, but this one in particular had me really entertained. The base plot was not of Jet's usual routine of mopping up hardened bad guys while tryin to secure her safety and peace of mind. Although that was the subplot, the main story revolved around a global conspiracy of evil bankers, shadow governments, and the powers that be.

The ending left us hanging more than the others, but I think that's due to Blake's inspiration to keep the Jet series alive, hopefully for 3 more titles! Can't wait for Jet 4!!

Hopefully we see more books from Blake containing the dark world of conspiracy! He really hit that aspect out of the park. That in itself could be the makings of a new thrilling series.

Until then, it's on to the Assassin Series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Russell Blake November 29, 2012
By VW
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading and enjoying the 1st two Jet books I didn't know where he could go from the ending of the second book. I was once again taken along a ride with a master spy woman named Jet. She once again settled down to raising her toddler when she was hunted by a group of russians. While reading this my mind went back to the start of the war on Iraq. I noticed a resemblance to a real life scenario regarding dealings in the middle east. You will not be disappointed with these 3 books except hoping to get your hands on the fourth book.

5.0 out of 5 stars When is number 4 coming out??? December 1, 2012
By Phoenix
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just finished savoring every word of Jet III, Venegance and I am already wanting number IV. I can't get enough of this woman and her kick ass ways. The ending just stomped me and I can't stand it. Why isn't anyone answering their phones? The suspense is killing me and I am upset I can't get the next book. Russell Blake is getting better and better with each installment. This character would make a great movie and women are hurting for female leads. It's fun, exciting, suspensful and the dialogue is right-on real. Love the Jet Books!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ACTION ADVENTURE! November 23, 2012
By AliKat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was every bit as good as the first two. I am eagerly awaiting the next novel. I am sure it will be just as good and I urge Mr. Blake to hurry and publish so I don't hang on tenterhooks for too long. I understand this next book takes us back to Uruguay (proper spelling?) with more adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars JET! with the wind in your hair... November 19, 2012
By srom

JET #3 Vengeance finds JET again trying for a normal life with her daughter...
And, again, It doesn't last long before she's back in action!
If you read the first 2 books in the series then you should have loved this one as well!
More JET-Goodness as a character from her past comes back into her life...
Her cover is blown and she Must keep Hannah safe, while going after the Bad Guys!
Surprises & Revelations await you in this Adventure!
As far as the ending - I was fine with it...It just set everything up to continue in JET IV, which should be out soon!
Russell Blake has crafted an Excellent series based on JET and supporting cast!
Fast-Paced & Action-Packed - I can't wait to read where Mr. Blake takes us next...
Rest assured, I'll be along for the ride to the end!
