2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on August 16, 2011
Format: Hardcover
He is in New Mexico where he executes six drug lords. The extraction team of four goes to get him as a tech support unit watches and videos his activities. The techies are stunned when the agent executes the extraction team. In seconds ten are dead. To the further shock of the observers he vanishes in a blink. Techie Johnson calls Handler Ben Freeman who orders him to follow the GPS signal in John Tibbets' watch but he must keep a distance if he chooses to live. Agent Monroe explains to Freeman and their superior Farris that the watch has an alarm that wipes out Tibbets' memory, which makes him more dangerous as a beast protecting himself.

Freeman joins FBI agent Richard Cone in a hunt for Tibbets. Cone is stunned from seeing the video, but is appalled to learn Tibbets and Freeman belong to a top secret government agency whose mission is assassination. Tibbets has ben subject to mind control techniques enhanced by drugs. On his own, he begins to recall bits of his life while leaving corpses on his way to New York City where he vaguely remembers saving a cop's life (see Walking Homeless).

This is one of the year's best thrillers as the American Manchurian Candidate is on the lam from his handlers while the body count rises exponentially wherever he goes. The story line is action-packed from the opening killing of ten men in seconds (in less than a page) until the final twisted confrontation. Yet what brings heart and soul to Al Lamanda's excellent tale is the antihero killing machine is a victim but who the villains are will stun the audience.

I enjoy Mr. Lamanda's books. His plots flow so smoothly that it is extremely hard to put the book down.

This book is a stand-alone book. Whether you read the first book or not makes no difference. Yes, there are characters from the the 1st book but they're much more involved, AND EXPLAINED, in this book. You'll enjoy this book from the first page through the last page !

Easiest 5 stars I have given and it was easy. The continuous action hard to beat.
For fans of Silva, Flynn and Child you will not be disappointed.
