Jack's Vital Stats: Age: 34, Height: 6'2", Weight: 185 Hair: Jet Black, Eyes: Steel Blue, Build: Broad Chest & Shoulders, Slim Waist, Born: New York, NY, Home: San Juan Capistrano, CA, Work: Mergers & Acquisitions, Employer: Self (formerly Benson Kohler) Cars: Aston Martin V12 Zagato, Range Rover, Hobbies: Martial Arts, Hiking/Climbing, Spectator Sports, Surfing, World Travel, Music, Food & Wine. He goes on to summarize this impeccable creation: `When we first meet Jack in `Lazar's Intrigue' (Book 1), we encounter a gentleman whose battles are usually fought in the boardroom, not on the street for his life. But an evening on the beach at the brink of a raging storm changes all that. Maybe it's a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or perhaps the twisted machinations of fate, but Jack's life hurdles onto a different course that night as he witnesses the shooting of a beautiful woman and rushes to save her life, thrusting himself into the middle of a corrupt DEA investigation. But why get involved at all? Two reasons, really. And the first is easy to understand. Jack discovers that he is mysteriously tied to the DEA's case, and being a take charge guy, he's determined to get to the bottom of things, especially after the DEA refuses to answer his questions. The second motivation takes us to the core of Jack's greatest weakness, beautiful women.....So, Jack is seduced into a dangerous world he has never known before, and it starts a domino effect of similar experiences in the books that follow. It seems like a strange energy has taken him over, attracting dangerous people and life threatening incidents again and again. Through these adventures, we also watch Jack develop into a bold, courageous hero who won't hesitate to stand up to the bad guys, especially when it entails saving someone he cares for. To him, it's all about honor and doing the right thing, no matter what.'
So what does that inserted info, once again, have to do with LAZAR'S NEMESIS? Nothing and everything. To the uninitiated (and this is the sixth of the Jack Lazar novels I've read) it is imperative to know the background of the character to wholly enjoy this story. Sterling opens his book in Zaventum, Belgium where the seeds for the coming plot are planted. As for where this develops, the synopsis on site is solid: Jack Lazar has had a target on his back for a while now, and he didn't even know it. In fact, he thought the man behind it was dead. But the evil son of a bitch survived, albeit a little less for the wear, and he's hell bent on picking up where he left off with his demented world agenda. His first order of business is to kill Jack Lazar, the man who foiled his plans the last two times, but not before he snares Jack and puts him through a particularly bizarre ordeal. Fortunately, the CIA has skin in the game, and Jack finds Agent Alexandra Shaw on his side, who takes collaborating to another level (more scintillating sensual shenanigans). Sparks fly as they investigate the case, teeter on the edge of death, and ultimately uncover a terrifying scheme involving the world's largest airports. The situation ultimately hurls out of control, forcing Jack and the CIA into a no-win scenario, and they realize it's time to make peace with their inevitable demise.
Kevin Sterling is a major talent in his field. Few writers can maintain the consistency of `formula' and still keep the books improving in style and action. Sterling incorporates phrases of the language in each of the locations in which he places Lazar and it is that sort of quality that stamps Sterling's successful series. There just isn't anyone at present who can match him. Grady Harp, September 14
For fans of Sterling's other books, this is much the same - sharp dialogue, clever characters, well-crafted situations, daring escapes, visceral emotional turmoil, and the ultimate battle of inner demons. Such a well-written series, both female and male characters are given their moment in the spotlight, developments that you predict from Square One never happen, but equally incredible scenes unfold instead. It's always a thrill ride reading Sterling's books, and if this is the end of Jack Lazar, then we'll always have the memories! Another smashing novel from Sterling.
Like the first five novels in this series Lazar’s Nemesis is filled with action and a fair amount of sex. And again, like the first five novels I have found myself pulled in only to find that it is way past my bed time when I finish reading. Great job yet again Sterling.
Usually, the story revolves around some crazy scheme that jack Lazar gets pulled into by some crazy circumstance. This time, however, Jack is at the center of the entire ordeal. You see, when someone has their evil plots foiled once, they are none too happy about it. But whe they are foiled twice, by the SAME PERSON? Well, let’s just say that person would want to “murder that person to death”, if you get my meaning. But Jack isn’t in this by himself: he has the help of CIA Agent Alex Shaw, who is not only takes over the partner-teammate role in this book, Alex is also Jack’s love interest. Oh, and Alex is short for Alexandria, in case you were confused. The two of them are up against their toughest foe yet, and it’s anyone’s guess how everything will turn out.
What can I say? This series has been consistently enjoyable (apart from the 3rd book, which I personally took a slight dip in enjoyment-ability-ness…), but this book isn’t necessarily new user friendly. It relies heavily on you knowing about the past adventures of Lazar, to understand the motivations of the “Nemesis” of the story. There are better places to jump in with this series, but for my money, I would just start from the beginning, and catch up. This series is definitely worth the read.
