Wow! Well, others have outlined the plot much better than I would have, I'm sure.

I would have given this book 5 stars except for the grammatical errors (quite a few, actually). "Less than" instead of the correct "fewer than"; "drug" instead of more correctly "dragged"; "that" instead of "who"; "hung" instead of "hanged; "Calvary" instead of "cavalry"; and the word "officer" instead of "office".

There were also a lot of missed quotation marks, sometimes making it difficult to read.

I do have to caution people who have queasy stomachs when reading about torture, etc. There is some of that in this book; and although it's not overly descriptive (going on and on and on), it's still quite upsetting. Expect some vulgar language, too (not an excessive amount, but it's there).

I'm on the fence as to how I feel about John and what he did out of revenge. Not sure I like the guy.

All-in-all a good page-turner!

You're not getting my seat! And don't argue! I'm going through these pages with a man that has spent his lifetime protecting our vast North American borders.

A great read written from experience as previously stated. However, the twists and contrasts in this novel will easily keep your mind entertained as well. I went from a "No Country for Old Men" vibe to "Manhuter" (1986... my first introduction to the first Hannibal Lecter sagas) within two chapters!

Characters could have only come from someone who has trudged the turf.

No more.

A very visual read.

I was in need of a good story to get me back into the habit of reading, and "Quick" was just the tale I needed. It has the perfect mix of CSI type action, theatrical drama, and still screams originality.

Furthermore, I would thoroughly enjoy seeing this as a mini series or big budget feature. The descriptions of landscapes, and cities behind the characters seemed so real.Just a few pages into the story I was hooked, and transported into the story.

I highly recommend buying the book, and continuing the saga as I intend to.Worth more than a couple of reads! Keep a tab on this author, he's got the right stuff!

I found "Quick" to be exciting and fast paced. It gives the reader a good understanding of the misery and danger encountered on the US-Mexico border by unsuspecting people when they enter the world of smugglers. I was able to identify easily with the books characters. The descriptions of places, people and conditions along the border were very accurate. I am certainly looking forward to further stories by this author. J.Clarida

This story was so chillingly realistic that I had to stop part way through and look up what Amazon had to say about the author. Now I understand. Mr. Kring has lived what he writes about, and his knowledge of the subject shines through on every page. An exciting, informative read. Thanks for a great story.

What do they say about writing about what you know? This is someone who's been there and done it, and got the T shirt to prove it.

Billy Kring has gone and written a thrilling story, based in part on his experiences as a border patrol agent on the Mexican border with the United States.

This story will grab you by the throat on the first page, and won't let go of you until the end.

I think we'll be reading more of Hunter Kincaid...

QUICK was a smooth journey. The characters were interesting, the settings meshed together well, and the action rounded the story out nicely. Billy did a great job of bringing the reader into the setting without getting too bogged down in the description. I want to see more of Hunter Kincaid's character, as well as John and Randall. I want more.

I love that I have a new series of books to look forward to. James Patterson is great...Billy Kring writes like he has lived it!
