I liked the book though. I turned the pages and finished it in a few hours over two days. It was fun, but it's just same old same old. I like same old same old for the most part and that is what you are likely going to get with him. Robin is a good character. Sullivan is a good writer. I could follow the story (that's not always true, of course, in any genre), the bad guys were interesting and not completely interchangeable and he had a crew that piqued my interest, but weren't developed that much - mostly by stereotype. It had a decent if well traveled plot. He didn't bed any incredibly gorgeous woman he met within a few days (like Lee Child's Reacher), which always makes me yawn.Read more ›
One need not have read ROGUE (or the three Monarch eNovellas that have preceded OUTLAW) to enjoy this latest installment from the jump. It begins with a clandestine, off-site meeting of the U.S. Secretary of State and her counterparts from India and China that goes seriously wrong when a group of Islamic pirates with delusions of grandeur --- they call themselves the “Sons of Prophecy” --- kidnap the trio and hold them for ransom. If the respective governments of the kidnappees don’t pony up within a week, the Sons are going to start lopping off their heads live on the Internet. This occurs the week before the U.S. presidential elections and obviously is going to have some effect one way or the other on things if the situation is not resolved, and quickly. The President puts the call out for Monarch, who agrees --- for a hefty sum --- to bring the Secretary back alive.
Naturally, however, there is a lot more going on here than a bunch of lowlifes with AK-47s behaving badly. The man behind the curtain is a crime lord whose name translates to the Moon Dragon and whose purpose in having the three power players kidnapped go far beyond anything as mundane as influencing a presidential election. India and China are not going to stand idly by, either; as a result, Monarch finds himself in the uncharacteristic position of working with someone who is not on his hand-picked team.Read more ›
I read a great deal - often with more than one book on-the-go (typically one fiction yarn and another non-fiction heavyweight). So I'm suspecting that for whatever reason, I'm probably the variable that's changed.
Rather than being dissatisfied, I think I probably found something else that caught my attention and so I wandered off down a different pathway.
Would I recommend buying the book? I've you've read the previous work and enjoyed it, I'd certainly suggest it's worth getting (even better would be to preview some of the book and make your own mind up).
Would I not recommend buying it? No, there's nothing that makes this in any way a "poor" or "bad" story.
There are far less enjoyable books that have cost me a lot more - so, for my final verdict? It's remaining in my reader - I'll go back later and either finish it or re-read (and I suspect, I'll probably enjoy it immensely).
