My thoughts: I give it ❤️❤️. Many passages contain awkward language and the quasi-relationship he formed with a side character was unlikely and also awkward.
I doubt Mr. Rogers has ever been to Australia. There are improbable things in the landscape. An “abandoned metal work factory towered over the rest of the forest” in an alpine region of country Victoria. There is also a “sprawling industrial complex home to a concrete plant” close by, both near a small country town. There is no logical reason for these things to exist in this sort of area.
The romance is unbelievable, the romantic interest is unlikeable. And I do get sick of heroes who fail to finish off the bad guy merely in order to extend the plot.
Needless to say, I won’t be reading any more of these.
INTRODUCING JASON KING…
On a cold night in Australia, two construction workers driving along a deserted mountain road are gunned down inside their vehicle. The killings are fast. Efficient.
An assassination, carried out with expert precision. The only witness to the crime is a man resting by the side of the road. Recently retired, he’d flown halfway across the world to escape his demons.
Ex-U.S. black ops operative Jason King.
Quickly spotted, King is targeted by those in the shadows of a small country town, ruthless killers determined to tie up loose ends. They have no knowledge of the violent past they are about to revive…
