Summary

Jon Reznick has never played by the rules, a trait that has brought him into conflict with FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein in the past. But now Meyerstein has been taken by a shadowy gang, and the renegade black-ops specialist may be her only hope for rescue.

The FBI are reluctant to let Reznick anywhere near the case, but he's not in the habit of seeking their permission - especially once his covert investigation leads him straight to the head of the Russian Mob. And it soon becomes clear that it's not only Meyerstein who's in danger: her abduction is just the start of a campaign to undermine American law and order.

With Meyerstein's whereabouts unknown, and the CIA and FBI seemingly operating at cross-purposes, it falls to Reznick to go it alone. Can he get to Meyerstein before the mob get to him?

A good old fashioned thriller

This series of Jon Reznick's adventures is now becoming my guilty secret pleasure over the summer. It takes a while to suspend all your disbelief that only one man can save the world rather than the entire FBI/CIA/DEA/Police etc with all their manpower, specialized equipment and resources. But when you can achieve that you are in an adult sized boy's own adventure. You know the story by the first few pages and the good guys are going to ultimately win after coming over significant adversary. Just go with the flow and enjoy y

A good story line

The narration of the book Hard Way was pleasant to the ear, the tone even and cosiest. I also liked the story which was captivating and exiting without being too far fetched. All in all, a worthwhile listen to while away a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Great Series

This is another excellent thriller in the Jon Reznick series. I listened to all four consecutively and am sorry I hit the end.
The protagonist in this book is a very believable character. With all the action and scenarios in each of these books there is never a dull moment. The book are only about 6 hours with the first being about 8 hours. This author doesn't use any extra words , no fillers to lengthen the books so they are basically nonstop action from beginning to end.
If you have kindle unlimited books 2,3 and 4 have FREE Audible narration included.
Jeffrey Kafer does an outstanding job narrating.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the entire series.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Not the best

The story seems like it was strain more of an afterthought than a good idea. I don't know what the authors infatuation with the f word is, but true professionals do not speak like this. I bet if you get a word count, you can probably take a hundred words out of this book if you remove them all. the way he keeps repeating himself, adding extra descriptives and needless information, it seems like he was aiming for a longer page count with anything.

Stop with the ‘F’ word

I enjoy book series that follow the same characters and this series is great. But seriously, can’t the writer use other words besides the F bomb all the time.

Waaaaaaaay too much profanity

I converse with a diverse group of people throughout the day, every day and NO ONE I know has the limited vocabulary of Mr Turners characters. I’d it’s not f-this it’s f-ing that or m-f on every page it seems like. MR TURNER ... PLEASE either broaden your vocabulary or allow your characters to broaden theirs. The story’s are SUPER but the profanity. Especially the f-word used so FREQUENTLY is RIDICULOUS.

The ugly stepchild of the first three

Blessedly shorter than his first three books of the series, this one should have been shorter still. The plot line was basic, beefed up by overly drawn out arguments/conversation and an hour’s worth of gratuitous F-words. Edit out those and you have book #3.5 instead of #4.

Another 5 star winner from J. B. Turner!

The publisher's summary is simply perfect at setting up Hard Way, so I will not repeat any of that info. Hard Way is the 4th novel in the John Reznick thriller series. Reznick is an ex-Delta Force officer who sometimes works a a contract employee for the FBI. He is a individual risk taker who does not fit well in the FBI culture.

I'm amazed at the amount of action, suspense and vivid character development author Turner can pack in a 6 hour novel. There are no throwaway paragraphs, or sentences, or even words. The narration by Jeffrey Kafer is outstanding. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this action and suspense filled novel and this series.
