This book really was a great surprise on how much I enjoyed it. When you find a new Author you never know what to expect, but J.B. Turner has done an amazing job with this book. I like his easy fluid writing style, and the entertaining plot he has put together. I also really like Jon Reznick as a character. He’s certainly a tough guy with some amazing skills, and he lies so easily when falling into any persona when he needs to. Jon Reznick had the type of job where he could be relaxing on minute, then dropping everything to board a plane at a moment’s notice. Not quite a normal job either, as Jon is a paid assassin for the Government. After years of being a Black Ops assassin for Delta Force, he continued this line of work after leaving the military, where he uses his special skills to liquidate enemies of the US all around the world. His next job his handler Maddox sends him on, is to kill Tom Powell, a 59-year-old that was considered a security risk, and for Jon it seems pretty straight forward. Get in, kill him, leave. The only stipulation is to make it look like a suicide. However, when Jon is about to kill him something makes him check the dog tags around his neck and it seems he doesn’t have the right man. However, it’s not Tom Powell, but a scientist Frank Luntz. Someone out there wants Frank as well, and they aren’t afraid to kill to get hold of him. They manage to kidnap Jon’s daughter Lauren as a bargaining chip. Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein from the FBI knows that Jon has Luntz, and she’s been tasked with bringing him in. The body count is mounting and Martha isn’t quite sure if Jon is responsible for all of them. I was pretty happy to see that this character has been turned into a series and there are another two books after this one. If you enjoy Action Thrillers, then you will certainly enjoy this book. It’s well worth a read.
