Ethan Cross captures our attention by opening the story in medias res, with Knight aboard a V22 Osprey having been pulled prematurely from vacation. As such, he is sporting an expensive suit in place of fatigues and is essentially unarmed. When the Osprey goes down in an abandoned city in China he is forced to scramble to secure weapons and cover, while searching for an enemy he believes he has seen spying on him from an empty building. Who he discovers in the building surprises him, but not as much what finds him in there. An old ally and an old enemy return, and Knight is forced to rely on every advantage his stature and training provide him with to battle seemingly unstoppable foes.
Aside from capturing readers' interest with intensity from page one, Cross also provides in-your-face imagery (like Robinson). The battle sequences are intense and vividly described, while the narration delivers keen insight into Knight's motives and emotions. Aside from being the most intense story in the series, it is also the most humorous. You will find yourself occasionally chuckling from this tale, both with Knight and at him.
If you are a fan of the Chess Team/Jack Sigler Adventures then grab the Callsign novellas. They add terrific depth to each team member, are quick reads, and will likely link to the next book in the series.
Knight is on vacation when he gets pulled out and thrown helter skelter into a mission.
The mission is in China.
They are almost at his landing zone when the plane, and Osprey, is hit. The plane goes down. Knight and a wounded pilot are the only survivors.
Knight leaves the armed pilot and does a walk around to see where the hell he is and whats going on.
Knight runs across two children and one helluva monster. The monster immediately attacks them. Its already killed the pilot.
Knight and the kids go underground in a building. The underground door is huge, metal and impregnable.
Knight has lost his contacts, a Delta team. He really has no idea what the hell he's there for.
All turn out to be dead, via the monster, except for Anna Beck. Anna Beck a woman who helped the Chess Team bring down Ridley.
Beck came with a group of SAS Spec Ops guys who were supposed to meet with Delta and Knight.
So begins one helluva good read.
This one is loaded with action, a couple of monsters, an old man who escapes his captor and Knight, Beck and one helluva brave SAS commander.
Just a great read and well worth those five stars.
Knight just rocks.
I won't spoil anything more than saying this is exactly what I hoped to read when it involves mishandled Lernean hydra dna.
The book is a nice look into the character of Knight as well.
