Viper is told to stand down and returns to New Jersey after being unexpectedly chased across the Middle East to the Amalfi Coast, a strange concept when the assassin is usually the one doing the hunting. The Organization has a mole that is leaking like a sieve and death lurks just around the corner.
And when the bill comes due, death always collects.
Alina knows this better than most, having lost her brother to enemy fire twelve years ago, prompting her to join the Navy and Naval Intelligence which eventually led her to the Organization. But the past is sneaking up, ready to explode like the handiwork of the terrorist’s bomb signature she knows all too well.
And he’s coming for more than just Viper this time.
Quarter Mile is part Fast and Furious, part Taken, and part Jason Bourne, and for a gal that loves cars and things that go ‘splodey, this was a really nice mix. But it isn’t all street races in this offering. We are talking about assassins – and even assassins have a human side.
That’s where this novel becomes a pivoting point in the series. Circumstances from all sides force Alina (and that mysterious Hawk) to explore the humanity that was buried long ago in order to become the weapon of mass destruction her government needed. But now that that government might be targeting her, she must reexamine the reasons for what she does – and what it has required her to give up.
And in this, Quarter Mile takes a darker turn – and you’ve gotta know how much I like the darkness. The stakes are high once again and the heat gets turned up on much more than the relationship that has simmered between Viper and Hawk. There is at times a level of gruesome we haven’t seen before in the prior novels that rivals the torture scene in Taken – and I’m talking the one that didn’t make the cut in the final theatrical release version. Viper goes deep, and for an assassin that means dark.
Since we’re dealing with so much introspection, the pace at times moves a bit slower than your typical thriller, but there’s so much meat to process in this novel that it’s appreciated. Things are set up here that promise an explosive next book – and yes, that means that not all loose threads are tied up in this one when it comes to the overall larger story. But that’s okay in my book. I like the anticipation of the upcoming possibilities.
As with previous books in this series, there are a few incidences of head-hopping with point-of-view, though it’s much better this time around. Overuse of eye narrowing, lip twitching, and the word slightly ran rampant at times. However, these didn’t decrease my overall enjoyment of the novel – especially after that killer ending.
But you’ll have to read it to discover what that is.
Another solid outing of the Exit Series, to which I’ll again offer up four stars. I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes – but I liked it so much I went ahead and purchased it for my library.
January 2019. I am re reading entire series in anticipation of the next book.
I got book 1 Next Exit, Three Miles (Exit #1)
as a freebie on amazon.com and from the first chapter I was hooked.
This is a new to me author and I like the writing style and the genre.
There is secrecy, action, intrigue, suspense, a bit of romantic/sexual tension, conspiracy, CIA, Dept of Homeland Security, FBI, Secret Service , and the main character is an assassin for the Government, what more could you ask for?
After finishing book 1, I bought Book 2, 3 and 4 and went on a reading binge, I have not been disappointed.
All 4 books can be read as stand- alone books as there is enough information given to follow the story, but I feel that you get more enjoyment out of these books if you read them in order.
Settle yourself in a comfortable chair and enjoy the twists and turns. A great read.
Book 4 finished with a bang and I look forward to Book 5.
Absolutely outstanding series. Non-stop action and intrigue. Great stories and great characters.
This is one series that is a must read.
