Series: Nick McCarty, #1
His mission took a quick turn when Nick decides to protect a woman and her child who are under witness protection rather than killing her as he was hired to do. Many other hired hands step in to take his place and Nick sure does have his hands full protecting them from assassins just as ruthless as he is.
Fast-paced, exciting and full of non-stop action, this is a very thrilling read. Surprisingly with a nice sense of humour and even romantic elements. Truly something for everyone to enjoy in this story.
What strikes me most about this novel is the ability of the author to persuade us to root for and invest so deeply in this seemingly heartless antihero and unfeeling psychopath. I can't imagine anyone not finding themselves rooting for this bad boy. I was also most impressed with the way the author skillfully draws us into a scene, at times pretty brutal, but in a way that we get an appreciation for the violence that's happening while not completely horrified to be there or traumatized by it. A true testament to the skill of a proficient writer. Well done Mr. DeLeo!
Great characters overall, great story, and well-written. If you are a fan of Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne series, you'd enjoy this one for sure. Highly recommend it!
