Oath of Loyalty | Vince Flynn, Kyle Mills
Pickpick

This is the latest Mitch Rapp adventure from Kyle Mills, and it just may be his best. The president is afraid that Rapp is going to assassinate him, so a truce is brokered. Rapp agrees to leave the US as long as the man is in office, but Rapp soon realizes that the president is not keeping up his end of the bargain. And so begins a game of high stakes cat and mouse with the future of America hanging in the balance. Definitely worth a read!!

Total Power | Vince Flynn, Kyle Mills
Pickpick

Mitch Rapp is back in action in a novel that may hit a little too close to home for many Americans. After the power grid is knocked out, the country is struggling to survive. With no computers, spotty communications and gas a precious commodity, Rapp and his crew must locate the saboteurs and try to get the grid online. This may be the most realistic book in the series because we are all familiar with the panic that ensues after a short blackout

One Rough Man | Brad Taylor
Pickpick

Pike Logan is a top-Secret operative who has spent far too much time away from his family. When they are brutally murdered while he is off on a mission, he loses it. Eventually, he leaves the Taskforce and becomes an aimless drifter, drowning his sorrows in a bottle. After saving Jennifer from a pair of thugs, he has a spark of a purpose. He follows her to Mexico to try to locate her uncle and gets way more than he bargained for. Worth a read.

review

Panpan

I am a big fan of Brad Thor and his character, Scot Harvath. In this tale, Harvath makes a token appearance but the real heroines are a team of female operatives. They are tasked with foiling a plot to make use of top secret Nazi technology. The characters are not really individualized, and the result is a quartet without any significant differentiation. I will read more Thor and hope this is an aberration rather than the shape of things to come.

When the President is kidnapped, all signs point to Secret Service Agent Scot Harvath as having played a role in the abduction. Desperate to prove his innocence, Harvath goes on the run. As the frame around him is more carefully constructed, Harvath becomes increasingly desperate. Breaks and betrayals are balanced in this fast-paced thriller that has lots of twists, without ever seeming forced. This is the first Harvath book and it‘s a winner.

After capturing an al Quadra bomb-maker in Canada, Scot Harvath heads to New York for the July 4th weekend. While he is catching up with an old friend, a terrorist attack on all the bridges and tunnels isolates Manhattan. There‘s a lot going on here, and I don‘t want to spoil it for anyone. It‘s very well paced and the plotting is quite intricate. However, there are a few minor in the plot for anyone that knows Manhattan. Still, it‘s a great read.

Russian | Ben Coes
Pickpick

Ben Coes has decided to give Rob Tacoma his own series. After two prominent politicians are assassinated, the CIA is given permission to operate on U.S. soil to track the killers. When his partner is brutally murdered, Tacoma sets out on his own to bring down the Russian mafia and settle an old score. Dewey Andreas fans, already familiar with Tacoma, wont be disappointed. A quibble: For a top-secret op, way too many people are in the know.

Lethal Agent | Vince Flynn, Kyle Mills
Pickpick

Mitch Rapp is back in action, fighting a war on two fronts. While the black ops agent is trying to prevent a bioweapon attack on the U.S., he also has to contend with politicians in Washington determined to undercut his efforts. The book has that “ripped from the headlines” feel and it touches on any number of hot button issues. However, this is a great thriller that shows Kyle Mills at the top of his game. Don‘t wait! Pre-order your copy now.

The New Girl: A Novel | Daniel Silva
post image
Pickpick

I wait patiently for Daniel Silva‘s new book each year, and I must say I am never disappointed. After a Saudi process is kidnapped, her father turns to Gabriel Allon to secure her release. What makes the plot work is that the crown prince must abdicate if he wishes to see his daughter alive again. A pariah for having ordered the murder of a journalist, the prince is a great character. Seemingly torn from recent headlines, this is a great read.

I think this book hews closest to the Canon than any of my previous efforts. Dr. Watson is the sole narrator as Holmes matches wits with a very clever thief for hire, who will steal anything if the price is right. There‘s a lot of history here and more than a few rare artifacts that buffs should find intriguing. Let me know what you think.
