Along the way, the two main protagonists pick up or shed some fellow travelers who help move the action along. The final act is long, dramatic and takes place on a creepy old container ship drifting along off the US coast during a storm. Good setting, that.
As to be expected out of supermen, the combatants have extraordinary abilities which you can either buy into or not. For example, the bad guy not only is cruel to the point of being disgusting, he doesn't seem to be killable or at the best, is roughly as vulnerable as a chief vampire in a horror novel gifted with nine lives. Part of your enjoyment of this as well as similar novels will depend on you buying into the existence of these sorts of folks who can take on any number of normally able foes and prevail. It's either fun or silly depending on your views.
Along the way, we have the usual business of one or another getting the other side under control usually at gunpoint and of course that's the signal for the speeches to start as if this weren't a deathly contest but a high school political debate. Naturally the speeches allow for Something To Happen and then we're off to the races again.
Well, written, well edited and mostly fast paced, this is good light entertainment if it's your cup of superman tea.
This is a cross between a comic book and an action movie. The characters are broadly drawn with no subtlety. I did like that the hero and villain were well matched in cunning and physical prowess. This book is apparently the sixth in a series and there are constant references to earlier events that I found annoying and unnecessary. There are more resurrections since Lazarus and the Bible and the faux death/reappearance trick gets old fast. But the pacing and plotting are tight and this is a good example of the genre. If you are not repelled by graphic violence and enjoy characters with machismo to spare, this is definitely the ticket. 3.5 stars

Using four criteria in which a felon needs only meet one, top level maximum security Fort Conchar houses the most dangerous threats to national security; no one escapes from this facility. One particular inmate, Prisoner 1854, is the only individual who meets all four criteria; even his jailers are wary of this mute maniac. After eighteen months residency, with help from a mob chief, he does the impossible and breaks out. Even with MPs, K9s and a helicopter in pursuit, Prisoner 1854, once Secret Service Agent Martin "Harvestman" Maxwell and allegedly buried as Tubal Cain to hide the scandal of his crimes, gets away.
The Harvestman owes his benefactor so he plans to pay off his debt by killing John Telfer and his family who is under the protection of Witness Protection as the latter soon will testify against the crime boss who freed Prisoner 1854. Maxwell also targets those who incarcerated him and John's half-brother, former Arrosake antiterrorist field agent Joe Hunter, who believes he killed the Harvestman several years ago (see Dead Men's Dust).
The latest Joe Hunter action-packed thriller is a fast-paced tale from the moment Prisoner 1854 escapes and never slows down until the anticipated final confrontation. Over the top of Manchester, England's Black Chew Head, fans will enjoy this adrenaline pumping rematch.
