I loved the first book in the Michael Prentiss series, so I bought the other four. I listened to this one via my Kindle's text-to-speech while on an 8-hour car trip. Very engrossing, the miles flew by before I knew it.

Maybe it's me and British mysteries.
They're so convoluted, with so many characters, I started having a hard time keeping everyone straight.
Also, it takes too long to get going.
The Ares file is lost in the plot.

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 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.
