After an assassination attempt on the president-elect, the OPSIG team is on the hunt in this “terrific thriller” from the USA Today–bestselling author (Lee Child).
Hard Target by Alan Jacobson is a ticking time bomb that will keep you clinging to the edge of your seat . . . and turning the pages.
An explosion pulverizes the president-elect’s helicopter on election night. It soon becomes clear that the group behind the assassination attempt possesses far greater reach than the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force has yet encountered—and a plot so deeply interwoven in the country’s fabric that it threatens to upend America’s political system.
Only one criticism
Thought the story and writing were very good. The one part I had a problem with was the relationship Uzi had with Leila. The story shows Uzi to be unbearably distraught over his wife and daughter's murders along with great feelings of guilt over his relationship with Leila. With that situation, it is hard to believe Uzi could fully function once he learned of Leila's true identity.
One of the few books that I quit reading before finishing. Unrealistic plot involves right wing militia in cahoots with gun lobby organization trying to kill President elect because of his “anti-gun” agenda. Writing style was boring and seemed to drone on about minutiae. Skip this one, save your money
