Vic Rodriguez was keen to have James Reece on his permanent staff at the CIA. Reece was currently a temporary contract employee of the CIA’s paramilitary ground branch, however he was just recovering from having a benign brain tumor removed from his head. One that until recently thought was going to kill him. His close friend and former Navy Seal teammate Raife Hastings, had offered Reece to recover at their family property in Montana, at Kumba Ranch. Things improved significantly for Reece when Katie Buranek agreed to a visit, as he was becoming quite close to her. Half a world away, Oliver Grey is trying to track Reece down, as he would like nothing better than to see Reece dead. Problem is, Reece is obviously totally off the grid, and even if he did find him, Grey knew that Reece was going to be a very hard man to kill.
From start to finish this is an exceptional book, and I would certainly recommend it. 5/5 Star Rating.

1. Felt like wayyy too much 'product placement', I didn't buy an advertisement and it felt like quite a few sections were written for the sole purpose of 'promotion' rather than reader enjoyment. Who really gives a sh$t about how thick the meat is cut or the intricacies of wine, perhaps this appeals to others but I found it overbearing. I enjoyed some parts about service animal rehabilitation but added to everything else 😉
2. Too much detail, its clear the author researched extensively but this reminded me of the worst of Tom Clancy stories, those pages you would skim through because the author went off on a tangent about the complexities of submarine engines etc. It was tolerable in a Clancy book but this author is nowhere near that level of storytelling, yet.
3. Predictability, I knew exactly who was going to live/die by the end of the book.
4. The whole overland across Russia/Serbia was completely unnecessary nonsense imo.
5. Even as the author set up the next book he again overshot the target on detail so, rather than be exited about the next book I was just glad this one was over.
1st book; needed some work but made me exited about reading the second book.
2nd book; the type of book I could happily read again.
3rd book; should probably sue the author for time wasted that I won't get back.
I sort of felt that dropping the * was a bit harsh but it's also not 5* material, really somewhere in between. As far as the story arc, the first 20% of this book, is really just book 2 but change the places & character names but exactly the same formulae. The Book has 2 main story arcs, Oliver Grey from Book 2 who basically decides that Reece needs to die before Reece comes looking for him & the "Russians", mainly a Russian Psychopath who likes to hunt humans & a bit of the Russian Mafia. Reece through circumstance deals with one then the other. Without Spoilers the Grey story arc wasn't really a satisfactory ending & felt a bit rushed, on a Kindle it was literally 81% - 85% & I know that SEALs are super soldiers but 6 months living off of the land in Siberia in the winter! & somehow ends up at the exact location & at the right time. TBH this bit probably made sure I dropped off that star. Will read Book 4 but it won't be right way
The book follows a pretty standard storyline, no real surprises it's all pretty predictable
The first 30-40% of this book is pretty dull, but you keep going, because as said, you know where it's going and you want to get the fast paced action.
The last 30% rocks along at a respectable pace and it's this that saves it for me, if it had remained as per the start of the book it would have been 2* and the end of my interest in the series
I do hope the author starts to be less obvious
