“Take my word for it, James Reece is one rowdy motherf***er. Get ready!” —Chris Pratt, star of The Terminal List, coming to Amazon Prime
The #1 New York Times bestselling Terminal List series continues as James Reece embarks on a global journey of vengeance.
A woman boards a plane in the African country of Burkina Faso having just completed a targeted assassination for the state of Israel. Two minutes later, her plane is blown out of the sky.
Over 6,000 miles away, former Navy SEAL James Reece watches the names and pictures of the victims on cable news. One face triggers a distant memory of a Mossad operative attached to the CIA years earlier in Iraq—a woman with ties to the intelligence services of two nations…a woman Reece thought he would never see again.
Reece enlists friends new and old across the globe to track down her killer, unaware that he may be walking into a deadly trap.
Bestseller Carr's fast-paced fifth Terminal List thriller (after 2021's The Devil's Hand) finds CIA operative James Reece, a former Navy SEAL, at his ranch in Flathead Valley, Mont., when he learns that a commercial airliner was shot down shortly after takeoff from Ouagadougou, Burkino Faso, killing everyone aboard. Reece recognizes one of the victims from a photo displayed on a TV news program: Aliya Galin, a Mossad assassin whose life Reece saved on a shared mission in Baghdad in 2008. Reece flies to Washington, D.C., where his boss, the director of the CIA's Special Activities Center, tells him terrorist Nizar Kattan was responsible for bringing down the plane. Reece decides to seek revenge on Kattan for Aliya as well as for Freddy Strain, an old SEAL pal who recruited him to the CIA and was killed by Kattan years before. Meanwhile, Kattan is hunting Reece, hoping to fulfill a contract for Reece's death assigned by the director of Russia's foreign intelligence service. The action builds to a gripping final sniper vs. sniper shoot-out between Reece and Kattan. Military action fans will get their money's worth. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, ICM Partners.
I’m a bit torn on this book. I still enjoy the main character but thought the story felt a bit flat. This super villain that Reece has been chasing didn’t ring that menacing to me nor the urgency all that dire. The epilogue was great but the overall story just didn’t work for me
In the Blood
This book is one of the best in a fantastic series. You will stay up all night following the exploits of James Reece. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Jack Carr is one of my favorite authors. Although it can be heavy in the military jargon, the overall characters, storyline, plot and narrative are compelling. Once you start, you won’t want to put this book down.
In the blood
Extremely good. Jack Carr’s books make us wish to keep on reading until the last page.
