From this intriguing opening, author M.H. Sargent leads readers on a fast-paced ride that touches on many of today's current news topics, including the bank crisis, the war in Iraq and the long-standing hostilities between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The characters are well drawn and, while I am not familiar with what daily life is like in Iraq, the details of the plot are convincing and appear to be grounded in reality.
The ending of this novel seemed a bit predictable to me, but overall The Shot to Die For is an entertaining and worthwhile read.
The setting is Irag and all the players are back, all the twist and turns of this suspenseful thriller are back.
So settle in for another thrilling ride by M.H.Sargent.
Then late last night right after I finished 'the shot to die for' I found another book by him Operation Spider Web so purchased it as well.
You cannot believe that this man sells his books for .99 when the writing is so wonderful. a must read.
The only thing I did not understand (which was not enough to lower my rating) was that towards the beginning of the book, there is a female insurgent who seems to have a lot of power and control, which is very uncharacteristic for women in this culture. Sargent even talks about how women are subservient to the men. But, this woman's power position is never really explained. I would have liked to known more about her and why she was in a position of power in a male dominated environment.
At $2.99, this is well worth the money. I have already purchased Operation Spider Web and will be starting it after I write this review.
I can't wait to see what Sargent comes up with next!
If you are a fan of military/political intrigue, Sargent will be right up your alley.
I would like to see his characters both friend and foe, made a little more real through deeper background developement.
I like them all very much and would highly recommend them to anyone who likes exciting spy type thrillers. The action is more based on sneaky, clever activities than shooting people. If you like this kind of genre, I highly recommend that you start at book #1 in the series.
I think this book is better than his first, which I also liked. But it may be that the author, in using the same cast of characters in this book, gives them more depth.
The bad guys are too one dimensional. JD Robb's books, the Death Series come to mind, you understand why the bad guys are the way they are.
Looking forward to the third!
