Can have spoilers.
Unfortunately i got them all at once, if i had bought them one at a time i would have stopped after 2 or 3.
This book series is cut and past, if you have read one you have read them all,its basically the same story, just change the locations and what artifact that is being looked for. The books follow the same recipe and you know what is going to happen. Like the chaces, some times its a car then a boat or a helicopter and there is no reason for me to read them because they all end the same way, the bad guys get away, after so many failed chaces this special team should reconsider there approaches and do something different.
Talk about this team of specialists, to me they seem like armatures, they always get caught offguard, like when they go to some expert at a museum,they all stand with there backs to the door and they get surprise by the enemy, and the expert always die.
They never have the right firepower ,it seems the enemy has acces to all sort of weapons ,attack helicopters ,RPG, missiles and other special vehicles, where our special team most of the time run around with little pea shooters, and only once did i read that they had body amour on,when attacking the base of the enemy. If they had used them, all the time then probably they wouldn't have lost some of the team members.
One really interesting thing was that in the first book,the main female lead was take at gun point 3 times as far as i remember, it actually happens a lot to many of them, and you start to think maybe they should find something else to do, something they are better at.
And when someone is held at gun point the rest of the team puts down there guns, big mistake you never do that, if this was real criminals this team would have been wiped out in the first book, but here they get taken prisoner and put in a very dangerous situation ,that they by a miracle can escape from, just like you see in a James bond movie.
Talking about shooting i have never heard about so many throat shots, not head shots but bullets that rip through throats, so far out LOL
Then we have the hunt for an artifact, it sounds good in the beginning but it always fall flat, they go under ground through some tunnels into a cave with a tomb, they get what they came for but the enemy surprises them again, and someone ends up at gun point and they lose the artifact and get looked up in the tomb.
Same thing every time, even in the citadel, it was set up to be something grand, but no just a throne and a big metal ball, even when they went to hell, it just felt empty and pointless.
So i see it, as a vast of time reading the books, this team is not good at there job, if seal teams would behave like this, there wouldn't be any more seal teams, they are behaving so stupidly not like professionals.
I could go on and on there are so many things wrong here but i think its enough.
This is more of a standalone novel with Joe Hawke in it. The President of the US is kidnapped while some of his successors are killed. A temporary President takes the oath, but he plans to stay there longer.
The curse of medusa involves.....well Medusa. And Hawke is there to neutralize it.
The stakes are high. The story propels forward at a breathtaking pace and the book is a hard one to put down. What more could you ask for in an action/adventure story.

As long as he doesn't do anything silly like killing for emotional effect and to hide lack of plot, I will certainly be anticipating new releases with the sort of enthusiasm I look at authors such as Chris Kuzneski, an author who could have inspired Rob Jones.
I have now just finished book 4 & they are just as great as the first time around.
Highly Recommend. Thanks Rob
On to book number 5
