5.0 out of 5 stars A Dark and Different Wynne Novel July 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having become a voracious Marcus Wynne fan over the past couple of months, I bought this book as soon as I saw it for Kindle. It is a different approach for Wynne, but still has all of his signature tactical acumen on every page.

The story revolves around a CIA operator named Frank Lovelady who struggles with psychotic episodes, and as a result he is placed in one of the less called upon segments of the spec ops community. He lives a normal cover life in a regular middle class town, but after accepting a request to find a missing teenager he finds himself immersed in the horrifying world of child exploitation. Three quarters into the novel, you're in horror story territory.

I found some parts of the story a bit hard to buy into (think Men Who Stare At Goats) but it was so well written, and the characters were so well developed that it didn't impede the story for me to any significant degree.

I was really impressed with how well Wynne incorporated the psychotic episodes of Lovelady into the story. I don't have much experience with mental health issues and yet I felt the oppressive internal struggles of the main protagonist with his internal demons acutely throughout the book. It added a dimension to the reading experience that I haven't found in other novels of this type.

There isn't quite as much outright violence as in some of the other books Wynne has written, but the buildup to each explosive scenario was excellent.

If you have enjoyed any of Wynne's previous work, this one won't disappoint. Its different and dark, but tremendously entertaining. If you haven't sampled Wynne's work before, I'd recommend starting with some of his previous novels.

Marcus has done it again. As always, this "gentle" reader has to wonder where the line is drawn between Marcus' real life experiences and the amazing stories in his books. Unfortunately, most of the serious topics in Lovelady are all too true.

Frank Lovelady makes a great Dark Angel. While fighting his own inner demons, he is still able to deal with the "bad guys" and make a little slice of order in a chaotic world.

My only complaint about this book is it's too short!

Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A slightly different persepctive July 22, 2011
By H.P.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lovelady is another peek into the world of Marcus Wynne, but from a slightly different perspective. Everything that his fans have come to expect can be found within Lovelady's electronic pages, but this time things are just a little different. If you like Marcus' work, you will like Lovelady. Be warned, however, this is a look into some of the darkest places that Marcus has taken us. It is not for the weak or faint of heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Read from Marcus. January 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gotta Love Marcus Wynne. I have all his books in paperback, that's published. I have all his books on kindle. I read and re-read them most every year. There is just something about a writer that has actually been there and done that. The only thing I know is if you haven't read his books you are missing out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, Brutal Ride September 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I discovered Marcus Wynne years ago with No Other Option and the other two that followed after that in print. Loved them and passed them on to many friends and family. Been waiting years for more work from Wynne and Lovelady does not disappoint.

Picked this up for my iPhone Kindle reader just before I went on vacation in July. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Intense, adult-oriented thriller about a psychopathic special forces assassin going "off the reservation" to use his skills to help the family of a fellow warrior.

There were some typos scattered throughout the book, but honestly, they just made it better by jarring me with an additional level of unease as you see what Lovelady is going through. I know that sounds like the ultimate suck-up defense of an author, but for me it was true.

The ending seemed a little rushed, but I suspect that's how things play out in real life instead of in the movies. Still enjoyed the hell out of it, though.

Marcus Wynne has a well-honed knack for putting you inside a person's head and his ability to do so really shines in at least one part of the book that you don't want me to spoil for you.

Read this book.
