Summary

He’s fighting for justice while she fights for her life.

With his daughter lying in the hospital, struck down in a reckless hit-and-run, the only thing Jon Reznick can do is wait - and plot his revenge. Not satisfied with the slow-moving police investigation, he starts his own manhunt.

He discovers that the car belongs to a high-ranking diplomat whose interests are closely tied to those of the United States government, and this man may not be what he appears. The FBI wants Reznick to back down, but the more information Jon digs up, the more questions he finds. Was it a simple accident, or is there more to it? How many young women’s lives has this man ruined? Lauren’s life hangs in the balance, and Jon must get answers, no matter the cost - to him or the government.

With the help of a dedicated NYPD detective who has suspicions of her own, as well as FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein, Jon Reznick will have to fight for his daughter while she fights for her life.

Another cracking book.

Reznick and Meyerstien up to their usual business. Fast and full of action as you'd expect. slight twist near the end which I'm hoping will continue into the next book.

Great

I enjoyed listening to Jeffrey Kafer, perfect for this great thriller .

Jon Reznick, has trouble following him, he just seems to find it. A man of many strengths. With his daughter in hospital and having to wait for her to recover from the hit and run.
Jon , with help from FBI Director Martha, the driver, will be in trouble.
Action, fast paced.

Fast paced and full of action...

So glad to see Jon Reznick back again. I think this is my favorite J B Turner series. This is book 6 in the Reznick series, each can be listened to as a stand alone. I would suggest listening to the first book for background of this character but it isn't necessary. My guess is that if this is the first one you listen to you may want to go back for the rest.
The publisher's summary gives more than enough information so I won't expand on the story.
This is well written , light and fast paced. Plenty of action, a few surprises (what the bad guys are really up to) and completely enjoyable! Reznick's daughter has come a long way since she beginning of the series. It seems Mr Turner may have some future plans to make her a more active character.
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

hard hit review

no twist, no turns, nothing gripping. Very predictable from start to finish. no sex, no romance,. not even a regrettable kiss in any of the books in the series.

Just What I've Been Needing....Action!!

So before I say anything too much, soooo proud of Reznick's daughter. Sad, but in these days of Epstein, Covid 19 and everything so topsy turvy, this was just what I needed.... straight out action, right over wrong and a clear dynamic of growth. I truly am getting tired of the female with too many questions, talking while missing cues. That didn't happen here. Whoot whoot!!

Doesn’t Make Sense

John Reznick violates many laws and still able to work with federal and local law enforcement agencies. The rant against diplomatic immunity ignores why the U.S. agrees with those rules. That international agreements is the only protection for U.S.diplomats in some countries. A country that refuses to remove a diplomat so declared runs the risk that the U.S. will refuse to recognize his diplomatic mission subjecting the person to our laws.

This is a fast-passed action adventure in which Reznick goes after a Ukrainian diplomat who ran down Reznick’s daughter. Reznick flies off the handle when the diplomat sends flowers to the hospital. A running battle ensues between Reznick and the diolomat. In the process, Reznick discover’s the diplomat’s other illegal activities.

Running Scared

JR is brilliant. Nevers steps back, never questions his motivations, and never apologizes to anyone, including himself. He is honesty and integrity with a Glock 19 and now his daughter is threatened by the worst kind of bad guy. The bad guy that he has promised not to "damage" or even expose to the light. Should have used capture and exposure of grampa Brutkin to torment bad guy Brutkin. Love the hacker, still waiting for the surprise with this guy, though.
