DeLeo puts you right in the ring with Harding as you feel like you are experiencing every blow with him.,John Harding was an Active Duty Force Recon Marine, now he is a black ops CIA operator, Reserve Marine, and owns a PI firm to put food on the table. I forgot to mention, he is also a mixed martial arts cage fighter. The book is longer than I expected, and I really appreciated this, since I didn't want it to end at all! It is a mystery, with wonderfully rounded characters (not the cardboard ones you find so often). The story line acts as the real world does, moving along mostly unpredictably, but comes together beautifully. Kick-ass action, great character interaction, bleeds red, white and blue love of country; AND it's a fun read! I was lucky, book 2 of the series was already out, so I bought it, and then book 3 was in pre-release so I ordered it! If you like this one as much as I did you will immediately order and read the other two! How lucky can you get? I had to wait for the 3rd one.,This is my new favorite series. I can't wait to get started on the rest. The writing is fast paced and full of action. What would be boring connecting chapters is solved with a few sentences or paragraphs until the action starts again. I've already missed one meal because I was so caught up in this book.,DeLeo has crafted a character that is a cage fighter, a part time covert operator for the CIA, a protector of threatened women, children, and neighborhoods, a killer and vigilante, a multiple linguist, an aspiring businessman, an admirer of feisty, beautiful women, a knowledgeable world traveler, and he doesn't put up with any crap from self-lmportant bureaucrats.
The narrative weaves several story threads together into a barely plausible protagonist as in the old Charles Bronson "Death Wish" movies, but with many more dimensions. Still, the story was a consistently engaging race to the end. Thoroughly enjoyable.,This is my third book by DeLeo and I really enjoyed all three. I enjoy his characters and the attitude and outlook they have regarding America's enemy's. I won't give any of the story away but it's a fun read with all the action you could ever want. It is money well spent buying this book. Read and enjoy.,Strengths: Well-written action, well-done banter and humor, no agonizing about being a killer.
Weaknesses: Secondary characters not developed. Main character isn't developed much more, but we're in his head so it isn't so glaring. Plotline is a bit jerky and disconnected. The major female love interest is portrayed as some sort of split-personality bitch who keeps doing the same boring and irritating things over and over. I think that alone is where the fifth star went.
John (Wesley?) Harding kept promising to clean up his neighborhood from the gangs - I thought that would be fun - but suddenly it's months later and the subject was completely dropped. Sloppy. The pirate quest is a tacked-on affair. The buddies are not very distinguishable.
These weaknesses won't stop me from buying the next book, although if they don't improve, I may get bored.
If you like a light-hearted, impervious, killer hero who makes mistakes, but never has much self-doubt, and who is always in action, this may be the book for you.,I am definitely now a fan of John Harding. Well written novel with a fast moving storyline and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. Very much in line with the Jack Reacher novels but with a touch of love interests that you don't find in those novels. Some grammatical errors but was not sure if it was intentional at the beginning to make John seem like not as smart a person as he truly is which get shown as the book develops. Likeable side characters especially how John sees a lot of himself in his young protégé. He protects him like a true big brother should and would but at the same time keeps him in check like only a big brother should and could.
Overall a very well written fast paced novel and am looking forward to moving on to the second book in this series. Keep up the good work.
