Review

"With a go-for-broke pace fast enough to leave Lee Child choking on dustand enough gun-love to make Stephen Hunter fans pay attention, "SoldOut" is a swift, relentless, bullet-riddled helping of treachery,conspiracy, and scorched earth vengeance. ... Protagonist Nick Woods is pissed off, hellbent onvengeance, and woe to anyone in his way." -- Mark Allen, author of "The Assassin's Prayer"

A fast moving and believable story! The main character wanted to be left alone, and the bad guys who should have been the good guys are out to get him, no matter the cost. Good attention to detail and realistic. Of about 100 books that I've read in 12 months, this author is one of only 4 authors where I'll be actively getting more of their books to read.

For many authors, the axiom of "write what you know" is probably better expressed as "write what you love to read". A lot of us read and enjoy stories about things for which we don't really have any real world experience, and when we decide to try our hand at writing our own stories, I think many of us attempt to create something that emulates that which we love.

For Stan R. Mitchell of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, this concept turned into his novel Sold Out. Not only is Stan a former Marine, he has a love of books like Stephen Hunter's Point of Impact and Pale Horse Coming, and Sold Out could easily have been another book in the Bob Lee Swagger series of Hunter's novels. The story follows Nick Woods, a former Marine Corps scout-sniper who has found himself a life away from violence and bloodshed, although he's still more than a little paranoid, and definitely damaged goods. But when a top-secret assignment from his USMC days bubbles to the surface, exposed to the world's media, the architects of that assignment - and the failed cover-up that resulted in the death of Nick's spotter - move to take Nick out of the picture.

I won't go into too many spoilers, but let's just say, they make Nick angry. Really angry. Like, nothing to lose, no reason to live, from Hell's heart I stab at thee angry. So Nick goes on a crusade of vengeance and retribution to put paid to those who've made his life a ruin.

And when Marine scout-snipers go on crusades of vengeance and retribution against you...you're pretty much screwed.

Sold Out is a very fast, action-packed novel.

With a go-for-broke pace fast enough to leave Lee Child choking on dust and enough gun-love to make Stephen Hunter fans pay attention, "Sold Out" is a swift, relentless, bullet-riddled helping of treachery, conspiracy, and scorched earth vengeance. Protagonist Nick Woods is not your stereotypical hero; he's more than a little paranoid (then again, is it paranoia if they're really out to get you?), blunt to the point of rudeness, and is perfectly willing to blow large-caliber holes through anyone remotely associated with double-crossing him and leaving his wife dead...even if some of those "anyones" are law enforcement officers just doing their jobs. Yeah, Nick Woods is pissed off, hellbent on vengeance, and woe to anyone who stands in his way.

Author Stan R. Mitchell's writing style is sharp, snappy, cinematic, and impacts with all the blunt force trauma of a hollowpoint to the head. If you're a fan of action novels, you need to read this novel ASAP.

Sold Out was spectacular. It was precise, reality based and a fat read. It was hard to put down. My thanks for such a great read.

I'm disappointed I wasted time reading as much of this book as I did. I stopped when I reached the point where the hero of the story just shot & killed a female FBI agent doing her job (trying to arrest him), then turned around and flat-out murdered a hotel owner to ensure his silence (after first 'pretending' he was only going to tie him up). Had to read that bit twice to see if I'd read it right. Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but aren't the main characters of stories in this genre meant to have SOME kind of moral code, so we can clearly identify them as the ones to root for?? I was willing to overlook the lovingly-described overly-detailed sections of the book devoted to the main character's many guns, and I thought the story had a promising start. But, sorry, when the main character resorts to murder I lose any sympathy I had for him as well as any interest in what happens next.

Rather than attempting to sound like a big city critic I'll give the feedback this novel deserves. "Sold Out" is an action packed kick ass blood bath from start to finish. Anyone looking to relieve some stress from the daily grind should pick up a copy of Mr. Mitchell's book. From the detailed descriptions of splattering a brain on the concrete at several hundred yards to stalking a man in the woods for hours only to end his life before he ends your's. Stan Mitchell has written a masterpiece in the eyes of this southern thrillseeker. Let's hope he keeps it up, the world needs more good writers not afraid to tell it like it is.

I like books of this genre, but this one fell short. Nick Wolf was a sniper and a good one. When he was double-crossed by a shadowy quasi-governmental group, he vowed to seek retribution. At times the hunter and other times the hunted, Nick works to regain his dormant sniper skills and eliminate those responsible. Allen Green, a reporter who has been disgraced by this same organization, teams up with Nick. Together, they work to discover who heads this group and take them down.

It would have been a good book other than a few things which to me, began to feel like chalk scraping on a blackboard. I could deal with the typos - there were some but not so many as to be overly distracting. More distracting was the racism and juvenile political views, which came up throughout the book. Little snippets like this one: "He was one of only two white males in the place. Four other males were Italian and one other older male was black." And like the Nazi "SS" that was on Nick's chest. Regular comments like this one: "Well trained and battle tested, and Nick had to face them with just the help of an anti-gun liberal from New York..." and "Days and days together or not, in the grand scheme of things, he was still just a piss-ant liberal from New York." Since neither Nick's nor Allen's political views or race had anything whatsoever to do with the story, the book would not have suffered in the least if the constant references were omitted. The author also tended to over-explain and parts of the book felt very repetitious.

I did read the entire book as I was interested enough in the story to see how things ended up, but I would not read another book by this author.

I give this story 2.5 stars.
