I like to boast that I'll read anything. And it's true. But I don't enjoy all genres equally. Spy stories and westerns are rough going for me. I have to make a commitment and dig in. The Ares File had me enthralled from page one. This is the second of the Michael Prentiss Stories by Andrew French. The action takes place about four years after the events in Assassin's Run--another great read.

Without spoiling the plot, the conflict concerns a minor character from the first book who has now come up in the world and wants to make sure his involvement in the earlier scandal doesn't become public knowledge. As usual French works magic with character development. We see this rather weak, unsure individual slowly develop into an arrogant monster willing to destroy anything and anyone, including what he once loved most, for personal glory.

Michael Prentiss is one of several individuals dragged into a deadly game of cat an mouse with a hired killer--a fabulously psychopathic creation by the way. Can the good guys stay alive long enough to neutralize the threat and root out the person pulling the strings? The plot twists and coils, taking the reader across the United Kingdom, to France, the U.S. and beyond, all at breakneck pacing.

As good as Assassin's Run was, I liked The Ares File even more. When I read the first book, it was falling in love with young Michael Prentiss--following his coming of age and loss of innocence--that grabbed and held me. This time around, Michael Prentiss (as sympathetic and "human" as ever) doesn't appear until the story has already begun unfolding. This says something about the growth and development of the author. His main character is not holding up the entire fictional universe.

The Ares File hooked me from the first chapter. A real thriller and page turner with a plausible plot and characters. There are many twists and turns as Michael Printiss works through a number of roadblocks to the satisfying conclusion. There were a few typos that could be easily corrected by a file update. However, they didn't detract from the books overall impact. I enjoyed this book and am waiting for the next book in the series.

The Michael Prentiss stories are tough and fast reading in the popular, thriller style of series for those who like this genre. Although the dialog is occasionally awkward, it is a rather minor distraction. The other distraction is the frequent typos that occur in most Kindle e-books.
