As with the other books that I’ve read in this series, this is a good story, Well written with very few errors that may or may not have been caught by a good editor. Overall I highly recommend this series for anyone who enjoys adventure stories about ex-Seals and other ex-military Types who form a quasi official Group to fight the bad guys.
But it was too heavy on military tradition and behavior, Hoooha.
Also, there were a lot of moving parts and lots of characters, it's like the author wanted to roll three books into one. Lastly, why did the author give respect to DHS head Chertoff, who turned out to be un-American. (Yes, I toned that down)
In spite of the heavy military tradition, the plot has the president going fishing for a day on our hero's boat. The boat is not inspected by the secret service before, and spends the night tied up to a dock unattended. Then, while fishing, the Secret Service detail is on a different boat!
Now, the action was great, I loved the Key West parts, the flying, the boating, evidently, this former marine has an unlimited supply of money, and keeps inviting more people to live on his private island.
I remember when he built the house himself....my it's grown.
Besides the Jackie line, I found the character of Jesse to be a little more shallow than the other books. Just not the best of the series. I object that it is always the woman who is having to "seduce" Jesse. Here is a virile, intelligent super hero who has to have the woman always bring up the sex and make the first moves... such as: "Jackie had an idea how to kill some time..." It just doesn't play with his character for me.
The typos were just overlooked too often, again. This author actually pays a "professional" to edit and proof these books. They have both fallen short here in my opinion. Especially the proof reader. She has been off in the other books and I have let it slide. However, these are typos that even I, reading with a migraine, caught. Such as, "He'll will; Oour interviews; etc.
Although I do have my problems with some of the writing and the character portrayal, it is still a very good book for light reading. I am going to think, though, before I buy into the next book. After reading the sample of it that is offered by Amazon, I am not really too enthralled with the idea of reading that one. But that is for the next book.
As this is a review of this book, I have to say that it is a stand-alone book, even though it is part of the series. That is so important to me! In general, it is a good light read that anyone who has enjoyed the rest of this series, or books like this, you will love this book, also.
The three stars are an example of what I have felt about this book as well as the rest of the series. But I do think you should read this one if you have read the rest of this series!
I am going to put this same review against each book as I think they deserve it. More please Wayne!
