Summary

A friend in danger. A shadowy psych ward. A conspiracy beyond Reznick's worst nightmares.

When an old Delta Force buddy comes to Jon Reznick for help, paranoid and fearing for his life, Reznick feels duty-bound to protect him. As a black-ops specialist, loyalty to his brothers in arms comes before everything - even the law.

But Jerry White proves difficult to protect. A runaway from a top-security psychiatric facility in upstate New York, he's considered a danger to himself and others, and Reznick is powerless to stop shadowy senior hospital managers taking Jerry back by force. When FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein warns him off, Reznick ignores her advice, suspecting the Wittenden Institute is not what it seems.

Digging deeper into the hospital's background - and that of its esteemed manager, Dr. Robert Gittinger - Reznick begins to unravel a sinister plot that will bring warzone black ops to American soil. And when his own life comes under threat, he discovers that Jerry is trapped in a web of high-level conspiracies more terrifying than anything he has ever encountered...

Dirty Ticks

I do enjoy listening to Jeffrey Kafer.

Jon Reznick finds a old friend crying out for help. Who is being used in mind games.
A hospital that is supposed to help veterans, is using 1960s mind games on them and using them for their own agenda.

Thrown into the mix is the CIA. We have a plot with double crossing and figuring out who you can trust.

enjoyable story

another good book from J B Turner. enjoyable and pretty well written with out being spectacular.
easy listening, although I do believe the narrator could sometimes use more intonation in his voice, as he can be a bit monotone.

Reznick to the rescue!!!!

What a great addition to the John Reznick series.
I won't restate the plot, the publisher's summary lays it out perfectly. For me to say more would only spoil this.
What I will say is that if you're looking for a well written book that is a high stakes, action packed thriller (Audible lists it as political but it's a thriller ) then this is the book for you!
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is $7.47.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this entire series.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

J.B. Turner packs a lot of action and suspense...

...into his novels without sacrificing his great plots. Just read the publisher's summary for the perfect setup. Hard Fall is a very intense suspense mystery with strong political undertones. The novel is standalone, but like most series the Jon Reznick novels are more enjoyable listened to in order. Jeffrey Kafer narrates all of the Reznick series. He does an excellent job.

Horrible

This book and especially the reader was the WORST ONE I have read in months.
The narrator’s incessant voice modulations were amateurish at a minimum and nauseating at the worst!

Great series

I’ve been enjoying all the books but liked this the best so far. The plot scared more than the Manchurian candidate.

Love this Series

Let me just say, Jon Resnick is who you want when you’re in trouble and not who you want to see coming when you ARE the trouble. Non-stop
action, great story line every. time.,every. book. If you like a no nonsense, patriot to the core hero, Jon’s your guy.

I can’t listen to another one of these books.

This is the third one I’ve listened to. I read a lot of espionage books so I feel I can review this competently. First, Resnik is so inept compared to other book characters that it’s unbelievable he would survive one book. Everyone is incompetent - from the FBI, to the police, to the black operatives.
If you really want to read a credible story read Barry Eisler’s John Rains series. But this is so bad I just can’t read/listen anymore.

Slow and Unbelieveable

Barely held my interest. Several instances were simply not believeable. Not one of his better books.

good read

The intrigue beginson the first page and continues throughout. Interesting plot, a different twist on the madness and inhumanity of the CIA. I enjoy the arguments between following the law and doing the right thing.
