That stop me from follow the story with interest. Good that each characters had differents names. Is something usual, in terrorist plots.
The mix of places, different plots and too many characters looks like a revolving doors, is something that the Barret needs to still master.
Grammar errors...needs a good proofreading. It took me too long to finished the book because I was distracted with this.
Too many roads that ends nowhere. A stong woman in charge and ends like a "girly in distress", come on, women are more strong than that.
I'm very honest with my Reviews, not only for me, the author or other readers, how an author know when did something good or need improvement?
How another reader believe in my review? If I didn't read the book, I don't Review. If the book is good, Review. If the book isn't good, Review.
With that we all benefit, readers, authors & readers searching for something new or special.
That will make me gave 3 stars to the book.
My opinions are my own. You can find me at Amazon under: MASTERI
I almost gave up at one point but fought on figuring it would get better. I should have stopped while I was ahead. There were endless gratuitously graphic fight scenes and the chase through Savannah took so long I almost forgot what the book was supposed to be about.
And then the ending. What a flop.
I also had a couple dings on the tradecraft aspect, though nothing that's a show stopper. Sending texts in the clear, mentioning names on unencrypted phones, even burners, is a Bozo No-No. Like I said, pretty minor. Let the little stuff slide and enjoy the ride.
Interesting plot line with good character development. And the ending may or may not surprise the reader depending upon his or her reading between the lines.
The plot is exciting and moves along quickly, and the characters make you wish you could step into the scene with them. The only reason why I gave this book 4 stars and not 5 is because the Kindle version still has a lot of small errors here and there in punctuation, spelling, formatting, and so on, but the author has assured that those were taken care of in the print book version. I also think the plot could've been even more intriguing if there had been some backstory in Ireland of some of the characters in an entirely separate chapter instead of worked into long explanations in sections of the narrative. This is something that I pick up on as an editor/publisher, but it doesn't detract from the fact that this is a fun, exciting book with great characters and an interesting plot. Barrett is soon to come out with two more books in the series, and I'm sure they'll be even better!
