This one starts with Deputy Marshal Mason Raines and his companion Leila Mizrahi a beautiful Mossad operative headed for the Greenbriar bunker where former President Rosalyn Glass resides. Mason is headed that way after he and his Father, Tanner, intercepted a communique to General Hood and his Black Dog assassins. The black dogs are headed to Greenbriar as well. Only they will be gong there to kill Glass.
Tanner and his companion, twelve year old Samantha Glass, are heading for DC to confront President Lincoln Pike a man who's already proven himself capable of unspeakable horrors in his quest for unbridled power.
Given the overwhelming odds facing both men it seems a safe bet that this would be both Mason and Tanner's last hurrah. Even so, neither hesitated agreeing that is was better to go out fighting then to hide in the cellar waiting for discovery.
So begins another fine read by Bradley.
This one has Mason, Leila, Tanner, Samantha, a Mason who returns to the place where he found Bowie and finds a letter that lets him know that Bowie, who's real name is Gunner, is a military war dog and very highly trained, the skeleton that is all that remains of the previous owner is the wife of Bowies military handler, a man who was killed in Afghanistan, The dog was gifted to the wife, a dog who is now Mason's partner, a dog who will protect Mason with his last breath, a Tanner and Samantha who make it to DC and encounter and ex Delta operator who is killing any and all who get near him, a Tanner and Samantha who make it to the airport where they encounter drug dealers, a Mason and Leila who encounter military cadets and bunkers loaded with guns and ammo and a missing commandant and those with him, a group of infected who are led by an ex military vet, a Mason who damned near loses his life in the battle and Mason Raines and his father along with Leila and Samantha doing their best to stay alive, save the day and put an end to the Pike and his men.
Five Stars and then some.
It's tough waiting for months only to find out after a couple hours reading, that I now have to wait longer for the climax, on top of finding a bad segway into a rerun of "World War Z" with the needing blood transfusions to negate the tunnels by Tanner and Sam.........
The fact that Mason, Boone and Lelia get sidetracked when the clock is running sort of tips the reader off to a continuation of the ultimate conclusion pretty early on too, especially along with the sightseeing by Tanner and Sam.
Seems we are going the long way around the barn here to get to the end and dragging our literary feet in hopes of further monetary enrichment when I was already chomping at the bit for the finale, hence the deduction of a couple stars from this follower of Bradley's series..
But folks were saying some impressive things about Arthur and his survival books and so I got the sample of the first book in the Survivalist series expecting, well, not much.
Happy to say I was wrong. Way wrong. Six books (and subsequent reviews) later, for me, the series has been a riveting yarn from start to finish. I'm a fan of PA fiction and Bradley writes some of the best I've read. Never mind that Book 6 of the series is a bit short (plot interruptus?) but it's also hooky, fast paced, gory (at times), funny, moving and did I mention, never slows down?
After six books I feel like the major characters are friends; and I still love the plot. Even though I think I know how it'll all turn out (or not), corny as it might sound, I can't wait to read the final (?) installment.
I hope you feel the same way! Enjoy!!
