Jack Carr keeps improving his craft!
James Reece is getting better, smoother, quicker, more confident and even a bit more human. Gone is the trepidation eveident in the Terminal List. There he did not know how to work outside the “rules” and write his own orders. Now, Reece knows who he is, what he is after and what he is capable of. More still his enemies know as well because his reputation proceeds him. Now Reece is more feared and respected than ever before. Which can be good and bad for him. Jack Carr really ramped up the action in this book. More graphic, more detail and more of it. But it is tempered by Reece being less of a blunt tool and more of a precision instrument. Make no mistake, when brute force is called for Reece does not fail to deliver. He is using just the right amount more often in this book. Which is good to read. It serves to make the character more human because Reece is not written as just a single minded killing machine.
The subjects covered and the details of the locations visited by the characters are excellent as always. Again, as always, the level of description for the guns, knives and gear used by all the characters is unparalleled. While some readers may object to this level of detail, I do not. I feel it adds to the story. After all, this a book. No pictures to illustrate the details. So the details make the mental imagery much better.
All in all a great novel. I have looked forward to reading each one and none of them has disappointed. I am looking forward to book six.
Hopeful you get this and might answer on a DC podcast
Firstly, love the series please keep it going Jack. That said, I do have one question where timeline are we? I only ask b/c we have a new, younger, sensible president who served…. In “in the blood” there is mention to Afghanistan and the plethora of issues we face in our present reality as orchestrated by the present real world administration mentioned BUT your fictitious president seems SIGNIFICANTLY better qualified and capable of decisions that might have yielded better results. (Candidly, any non-puddin head person would’ve) :-) I was pondering that as I listened to the mention, thought about the exchange in devil’s hand, and how such idiocy would seemingly never happen on the watch of your written administration.
