To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My first book by this author, and the first in a new series, good to catch a new series from the beginning.
THEY TOOK HIS LOVE. THEY TOOK HIS VOICE. HE’LL TAKE THEIR LIVES.
Before he became a vigilante assassin, a legend feared by criminals, Silence Jones’s previous life was stolen from him in one night—his fiancée murdered, his throat crushed, and his face destroyed.
His brutal revenge leaves behind a long trail of mangled bodies, which captures the attention of a covert group hidden in plain sight within U.S. government. The organization makes Silence an irresistible offer: if he joins their ranks as an assassin, they’ll lend their full support to his blood-soaked rampage.
But when Silence discovers that the people who killed his fiancée have much bigger plans in mind—plans with deadly implications for national security—his mission suddenly shifts focus from vengeance to duty. A catastrophe is ready to explode, and the only person who can stop it is an untested assassin.
The first standalone action thriller in the pulse-pounding new series. Enter the world of Silence Jones. Hold on tight…
Being the first in the series there are flashbacks, which normally I do not like but I have the full understanding of the importance of introducing a new character, new story and a good history, which this does well.
Well paced action thriller, of course my favourite type of thriller. As a reader you will learn Silence Jones is "No superhero", he makes his mistakes and pays for it.
A great start to the action thriller series, which is filled with great authors and even more bad authors. Some good ones mentioned below.
If you like action heroes with the steely resolve of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, the calculating will of Gregg Hurwitz’s Orphan X, and the raw power of Mark Greaney’s Gray Man, Tom Wood's Victor the Assassin, Kerry J Donovan's Ryan Kaine, Steven Konkoly's Ryan Decker, Ben Coes's Dewey Andreas and Mark Dawson's John Milton then you’ll love Silence Jones.
Made a change from the usual Jack Reacher clones . Different character , original idea . Easy to read . But .... far too many flashbacks . Would prefer the book and character to live in the moment , not the past.
Great start to the series. I really liked the story and characters. Carter does a great job setting things up. Parts were a little verbose and the book could have ended 15 pages earlier but Silence is likable and this had good supporting characters and villains. This is the beginning of a fun series
