Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Janson Command
Paul Janson, a character first featured in Robert Ludlum's bestselling novel The Janson Directive, has a new goal: save the world, one operative, one mission, one redemption at a time.
Reformed from his days of covert-operations, Paul Janson has set a new mission for himself. Working in partnership with champion sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he rehabilitates disenchanted agents and helps them create new lives outside of the violent intelligence sector. These former operatives then form a network of support for Janson when it comes to his other job--Janson also takes on independent assignments. For a fee, he'll use his skills to resolve international crises. But only those actions that he believes contribute to the greater good of all.
Whether he's rescuing an American doctor from Somalian pirates, attacking militant thugs intent on murdering a West African public servant agitating for human rights, or hunting the money-lenders who capitalize on barbaric civil war, Janson stays honest with three simple rules: 1) No torture. 2) No civilian casualties. 3) No killing anyone who doesn't try to kill them. Yet with his commitment to doing what is right--while facing canny intelligence operatives, ruthless warlords, deep sea marauders, or brutal dictators--Janson finds that his most difficult task is figuring out if he's fighting for the good side.
Robert Ludlum (1927 2001) would have been proud of Garrison's fine thriller that picks up where his The Janson Directive (2002) left off. Paul Janson, once a respected and feared member of the U.S. government's secret Consular Operations, now runs his own private security outfit, CatsPaw Associates. An oil company headquartered in Houston, Tex., hires Janson to rescue one of their employees, who's been kidnapped by the Free Foree Movement, insurgents who are attempting to wrest the Isle de Foree, which broke away from Equatorial Guinea, from the hands of Foree's hated dictator, "President for Life" Iboga. Janson's girlfriend, Jessica Kinkaid, a world-class sniper and Special forces type warrior in her own right, lends assistance. That Janson is a complicated character makes him more interesting than most action heroes, while Kinkaid proves a capable sidekick. A number of swift, unexpected plot twists will leave Ludlum fans eager to see more in this franchise from Garrison (Fire and Ice).

Fast moving, a lot of action , too much needless and senseless violence ! Obviously this what makes the public and the publishers content ! It also has a tendency to desensitize the reading public , myself included! In your next book minimize the body count to just the principal characters ! Not enveloping countless innocents! Thank you ! Sincerely Gary Baker
The magic continues
Mr Garrison has very successfully mastered the writing style of the late Robert Ludlum. I look forward to his next publication.
The only complaint I have, is the cost of this "e-book". There is no way it should cost as much, or within a couple of dollars, of a printed hardback.
