Thomas's story took me right into the conspiracy theory of it all just like any paranoid book geek lover. I jumped into the rabbit hole with Thomas only to find truths that I wasn't ready for. Thomas was smart, strong, confident, but during his first mission he made a crucial mistake that I can only describe as a one in a million shot. The entire scenario is too stupid to be unbelievable, but one for the Myth Busters for sure! After the “incident” Thomas's boss Yakov notifies him that headquarters is placing the blame on him and you're fired. Well that sucks. But the good news is Yakov is a sneaky dude that had in the works his own business, so hey Thomas, I have a job for you if your interested... All in all, Thomas had to deal with his own recovery, and the mind blow that his own outfit would shun him like that, and basically leave him no choice but to go commando on them. During his new mission, he meets some interesting characters, and forms unexpected relationships with them. While undercover he finds ways to complicate the outcome, and made the ride a one way ticket to his own independence.
Thomas's character was your typical dude mentality, but with an edge. He was smart with a psychology degree, combat and weapons trained, and a mind as sharp as a trap! During his mission I was able to see him for the smooth operator he truly could be in a highly intense stressful situation. He definitely was the man you wanted on your team when trouble came. His team mate Uri was a good guy. He was more tech support than field agent, but he stuck by Thomas's side like a true friend, even though at times he did come across as a flake. Yakov was a wolf in sheep's clothing. I hate people like that, but he played his part well cause I do loath him. The plot twist was played out nicely, with just the right amount of danger to keep me glued to my Kindle. The pace was a bit slow, but there was a lot of character development involved with him. In the end, implications were left about his next mission leaving me with a need for more. Tom Glaze was a great thriller from a new to me author that I will definitely keep on my radar! And although I did thoroughly enjoy the story, the slow parts did sway my rating a bit and presented a conundrum. Since I don't do half stars, I always go down thus the 3 stars. Just let me tell you the struggle was real!
