Summary

A senior American security adviser is missing, presumed kidnapped for his top-level military intelligence. FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein needs to track him down before classified information gets into the wrong hands. She needs Jon Reznick on board.

The former black-ops assassin is supposed to be on vacation with his daughter, but when Meyerstein calls, it doesn't pay to keep her waiting. Her elite team is convinced that the missing diplomat's expertise in the Persian Gulf points to an Iranian terrorist cell, but Reznick isn't so sure. His gut instinct tells him they're all wrong. Never one to play by the rules, he finds himself working alone, following a lead that everyone else has dismissed. But to Reznick, the suspect seems a little too clean...

When the team comes under attack, the kidnapping is exposed as part of a much wider conspiracy, one far more dangerous than Meyerstein feared. Nothing and nobody is safe - and only Jon Reznick stands between national security and a campaign of unprecedented terror.

Better than the first

This is the second book in this series & very enjoyable with an original storyline. However, I'm put out by a couple of things: Why was there no overt admission of getting it wrong and admitting that Jon was right! And why did she foolishly allow him to use the bathroom? Every one could see that coming!!! That was disappointing.

But this is an enjoyable series - only 5 titles thus far.

A must buy audible.

Yes this Jon Reznick series is a fun listen filled with multiple red herrings to keep the listener engaged. Kaffer once again does an outstanding job in his narration just as he did in book one.

Movie material

Lots of action, and as usual almost supernatural characters to deal with it. People who like conspiracy will like it goodbdescriptions of moving thru New York on foot and in CARS. I liked it, but didn't love it.

Quick paced and enjoyable

The plotline moves fast and is somewhat unpredictable. The characters are appealing and grow on you. The narration is superb.

Average

I listened to Book 1 in the Jon Reznick series and thought I might have found a good series. Sure the first book lacked depth and character development but it was only the first book, surely they would improve after all the writing was pretty good. Unfortunately I was wrong. I never did figure out why Jon had to be involved. He didn't bring much other than his intuition and technically didn't work for the FBI. He really didn't bring any special skills.
There really isn't much relationship building or character development with depth. There is minimal tension or suspense. We do know that nearly everyone is always in need of sleep .. This isn't a series I am likely to finish or to follow waiting for the next book release.

Finally, truth in fiction instead of propaganda.

Americans wake up to understand how it really works. While many authors use the clichés of the War on Terror for their novels, now other authors are doing their job and reflecting reality. This book is more than fiction, but a carefully told story about what should have happened after JFK, 911, and you name it. There is a cancer eating our country and only good people not looking away will preserve our future. Is this your country or does it belong to an oligarchy who runs us as a plantation? The news will never tell you the truth, but courageous people everywhere are. Support them and stand you for what is right. We are not commodities, but spiritual human beings. Act like it. Bravo to be writers who decide against a nice paycheck if it means being ignorant or selling out. Amen.

Lots of action and sustained suspense!

Protagonist and ex-Delta Force hero Jon Reznick is now a contract employee of the FBI reporting directly to FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein. What appears to be a Islamist terrorist attack in the planning stages is actually a rogue CIA operation to kill the US president. While Hard Kill can be listened to as a stand alone novel it ends with the key terrorist target escaping. It certainly has elements of a cliffhanger finish. Narrator Jeffrey Kafer, best known for his performances of sci-fi audio novels, does a great job with this series.

The Jon Reznick series novels are fun listens.
