Blurb: "Former Colonel Lou Christopher is an ex-Army Ranger retired from the military and contentedly working as a New York investment broker. After being assigned a number of lucrative accounts and becoming accustomed to living the good life, he discovers there is a pay back. His former military skills are requested under a threat of losing everything he has.
Handed a group of misfits to assemble into a military strike team, he is coerced into leading the team on a mission of domestic terrorism. At the center of a bridge outside of Manhattan, his strike team is caught in the act and unexpectedly becomes engaged in a deadly firefight. It’s then that he learns the mission was a political maneuver from the highest levels of the U.S. Government—and ultimately realizes he has been betrayed by his superiors. Learning his team was considered nothing more than collateral damage and intended to be killed and left as a scapegoats, he uses his unique military expertise and engages in a fight for his life.
As the strike team is decimated, he and a female teammate elude the opposition forces to survive and escape, turning the tables on his superiors. Using his distinctive set of military skills, he now becomes the hunter and vows to extract his revenge and bring them all down."
Oh, I hate when I have to give these reviews. I really pushed to finish this because there’s always a chance it can surprise you, but it didn’t. This book starts out with a couple kindle pages worth of dialogue with no tags.
A little confusing, I will buy that, but then we come to work? Work, yep. This book in the three chapters mostly focuses on a man and his wife, how they love and got together, and how they had affairs on each other and still stayed together… Most of this during an auction. An auction, waiting for a butter mold to show up.
I did finish all three chapters, and action started to appear towards the end of chapter, but it was just too little and too late. Maybe another chapter or so, but if I am not hooked by a chapter three, then it’s really not for me. I would have to say I wouldn't continue with the book.
I also have several formatting errors in this copy, but as this was not bought directly from any place, I can’t say whether these formatting errors exist only in conversion or not. Sample yourself to be sure.
