I enjoyed it, but not as much as 'Viper.' This is just my impression, but I figure it goes something like this... the success of Viper has imbued the author with confidence and everyone is excited about the upcoming sequel. Mr. Broyhill falls into an easily understandable creative position of wanting to grow as a writer and (no pun intended) spread his wings… he wants to tick all the boxes… Dark thriller = check. Relentless action = check. Great flying = double-check. Alphabet Agency conspiracy = check. Adult = check. And so on; you get the idea.
And all are embodied (although I was personally hoping for more dogfighting) here, especially the ‘Adult’ portions. Which were, in my estimation, over-represented and prevented me from giving this book five stars. The ‘R-rated’ (I’ll call them that so the Amazon Reviews Police stay out of this) scenes were waaaay overdone and quickly became tedious. My opinion stems not from any puritanical streak – if you knew me you’d laugh yourself out of your boots at such a thought – but simply from them not needing to contain that level of detail to achieve their goals and unnecessary to move The Story along. Put it this way, the cinematic equivalent in an action film would be the love scenes, which might normally take up, say, a minute or so, being extended to ten minutes. Or, alternatively, the spectacular car crash going on for five minutes. Or that wide shot of a gorgeous sunset going on and on and on and on… It’s an indulgence.
I don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun, Mr. Broyhill, and certainly not yours. Hey, I’m often a “If some is good, more is better. And if more is better, too much is just about right!” kinda guy. But not in this instance. Sure, by all means, get graphic on us but please, a little goes along ways. I really think you’d be better to dial back the hot sauce a tad rather than splosh it on by the bucket. Just my observation…
I’ve just bought The Satan Contract and I’m excited to see what Pearce gets up to next. Thanks for some great writing!
Of course there is still plenty of flying and I was curious to see how it would happen as the last book was all based in a F-15 Viper but this one starts off in a luxuriousness Gulfstream IV. Good news is it manages to work out very well and Chris Broyhill's style of writing and descriptions of what is going on make it a super fast and heart pounding read. I found myself laughing out loud a lot and making comments a lot which doesn't happen to often while reading. The mixture of sex, love, reality, flying is a great combination for a book for me!
Have to be honest was a little worried at the end of the book where the author was going then pleasantly surprised to see where he went in the last few pages. Good choice otherwise I was going to be a little upset. Looks like the next one to come out is the Satan Contract and look forward to getting it on my kindle as soon as it is available. Highly recommend reading this and good luck putting it down!
