Assassins, Explosions, massive weapons, and psych ops. What's not to love?
This book is almost non-stop action. It seemed like every page had someone that was getting shot, stabbed, beat to a pulp, blown up, or kidnapped.
Chuck the main character is an assassin. Is he a good guy or a bad guy? You could argue either side. I liked him. He pulls off some bad-ass moves.
I recently read that to have a successful thriller book you need to show your characters failings and continually ratchet up the misery while keeping the action increasing. Mr. Weston does that in spades with this book.
I had read the first half of this book then stopped. Not sure why. I must've had a brain freeze because when I picked it back up barley a chapter into it and my heart was pegged and sleep was going to be a long way off. I literally chewed through the rest of the book in four days. Two more that it should have taken but in my defense I went on vacation and it's hard to fish with a laptop in my hands.
This story has a lot of characters that form a troop of baddies and I won't spoil anything but a good time was not had by all.
The only thing I disliked about the book is that it leaves threads at the end for the continuation of the story. I personally do not like that. I prefer each book in a series to stand on it's own and have a clear ending. That is to take nothing away from this book because it delivers on so much that it wasn't one of the endings that causes you to groan with disbelief that the author ended it there.
Thriller fans will enjoy this book and it will be very interesting to see what Mr. Weston has in store for Chuck.
