Summary

Jon Reznick will protect New York City or die trying.

When a group of homegrown attackers takes aim at cops outside a Fourth of July baseball game, black-ops specialist Jon Reznick and his daughter, Lauren, are caught in the crossfire. Jon hunts down two of the gunmen. But the last member of the group is at large and about to launch a fresh killing spree across the city. Cops are under fire, and Jon must stop this madman before more people are killed. 

But Jon’s renegade tactics and vigilante justice are starting to ruffle some feathers, and his friends in high places might not be able to help him anymore. With leaks inside the FBI and resistance from the NYPD, Reznick doesn’t know whom to trust. 

He knows one thing: he won’t watch the city he loves be torn apart, especially not with his daughter in the crosshairs. But can he get to her in time?

Packed with action...

If you haven’t listened to this series and you like plenty of action then I would suggest picking up HARD ROAD. That is the first in the John Reznick series. Each can be listened to as a stand alone but there is a progression in this character so I would listen in order but you can start here.
This book has Reznick chasing homegrown terrorists around NYC killing them off one or more at a time. His daughter is also in the city refusing to take her father’s advice. Instead of staying safe inside her hotel room until the snipers are all killed or apprehended, she on the streets and going to meeting places with friends. You can see where this is going.
Anyway, this is a fun listen that’s over too soon.
Jeffrey Kafer does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Very intense suspense!

Author J.B. Turner does it again with HARD SHOT Book 7 in his Jon Reznick series. Reznick's college age daughter plays a major role in this novel. Narrator Jeffrey Kafer does a great job.

Okay, I'm going to complain again about Audible's genre classification. Audible calls Hard Shot a military thriller when in is really modern detective (Reznick works for the FBI).

Lauren Is Braver Than Smart..

Narrator is at top of his game. Love his fast talking Reznick.

Even my husband likes listening to these stories. With his background, that speaks volumes. Meyerstein and Reznick's character growth and relationship is moving right along at a good clip.

Now, as to his daughter Lauren. Smh🤔, the girl is braver than she is smart. She jumps in without proper training. With her Dad being former Delta, that should be pretty easily remedied. First, she needs trauma medical training and should carry a small case in her backpack and inside an inner coat pocket. Second, Krav Maga training so she learns to use whatever is at hand. Third training with Reznick's hacker buddy. With these things accomplished, she won't be superwoman, but pretty darn close. She's young enough to take the Krav while finishing college then spend the summer before FBI training with hacker. She'll truly be an asset then. So where's the next book already?😁🥰

Good story and fair narration..


So, after the 6th book, that hating it so much I couldn’t believe it, I wasn’t going to read another Jon Reznick story. BUT I gave in and read this one. It turned out pretty good but I’m real tired of his daughter. In book 6 I wrote this in my review, “To make matters worse he finds out, at 80% of the book, after his daughter is all better, that she is a student of Krav Maga, can shoot and carries a gun, all the while she’s a college student.” In this book she was nothing but a smart-a$$. AND J.B. Turner keeps making Jon a cold-blooded killer, not that the gang-banger didn’t deserve it, but still, he was on the ground and unarmed, but Jon shot him in the head twice. I’m not sure I’ll read book 8 when it’s out. He’s making our hero not much of a hero. IMO.

No sex or romance and the F-bomb was used 118 times.

As to the narration: Jeffrey Kafer has a good reading voice and he’s getting much better at doing feminine voices.

Always a great story by JB Turner!

This series never disappoints, and this book was equally amazing. Starts quickly, and keeps the intensity up well. Whole story takes place over about a day, so it keeps you glued!

How these books haven't been turned into a Netflix or Amazon series is beyond me. Definitely should be though!

Not as good as previous

I enjoyed most of the books in the series but thought the plot in this book was pretty basic.

Absolutely THRILLING

This is one of my favorite series, and hands down the most thrilling of any series. J.B. Turner puts the THRILL into thriller. Narrator Jeffrey Kafer is the voice I love of Jon Reznick.

Nonstop Day of Action

Plot runs as fast as Jon Reznick on amphetamine. A 4th of July outing with his daughter turns into a nonstop chase after a family of killers who are assassinating cops. The killers have the unlikely support of the Arian Brotherhood MS-13, and traitors within law enforcement. Although associated with the FBI, Reznick does not feel bound by their rules of propriety or conduct. He has no second thought about killing a threat first and asking questions later. That includes a future threat, as well as an immediate one.
