Product Description

Product Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Grant Blackwood introduces Briggs Tanner in a trilogy that Clive Cussler raves is “Pure fun, pure adventure.”

One Man.

Covert agent Briggs Tanner doesn’t like coincidences. In his business, they always mean trouble. So when a man is professionally assassinated right in front of him, Tanner wants answers.

One Mission.

Who pulled the trigger and why? And what is the mystery behind the key the man clutched in his dying hand—the key that Tanner now possesses?

One War Without End.

His search will lead him on an international trail, city to city, from the depths of the Pacific Ocean to the bullet-ridden back alleys of Beirut, all the way to a deadly secret—buried since the end of World War II—that only Tanner can keep from falling into the wrong hands.

3.0 out of 5 stars Standard global conspiracy silliness 8 Dec. 2002
By Amazon Customer HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I was a young lad in the 50s and 60s, I read all books of The Hardy Boys series wherein these two clean-cut, drug-free, American teenagers outwit a wide variety of scoundrels. In THE END OF ENEMIES, Frank and Joe Hardy have grown up to become Briggs Tanner and Ian Cahil, two clean-cut, nobly heroic, ex-Special Forces types employed by a private firm that does top secret wet work for the U.S. government. (Plausible deniability for the President, you see.) In any case, Tanner and Cahil now have the opportunity to save the world, or at least the Eastern Mediterranean.
This potboiler is a standard global conspiracy thriller involving leftover WWII munitions, a renegade Japanese industrialist, Arab terrorists, Syrian plotters, seduced damsels, the FBI, the Mossad, traitors, blackmail, the CIA, and a Doomsday plot. It's entertaining in a silly sort of way, much like the Impossible Missions Force movies starring Tom Cruise.
I don't know. Maybe it's because I've read so many similar storylines that I've become jaded. In this case, my peevishness stems principally from the fact that all the characters, whether American, Canadian, British, Japanese, Israeli, Russian, Syrian or Palestinian, all "sound" like customers recruited by Central Casting out of a Seattle corner Starbucks and dressed up in costumes for a day of play acting. (This is a failing of quite a few works of espionage fiction, not just this one.) Moreover, author Grant Blackwood is occasionally incredibly sloppy in the small details. I picked up on a few (and wonder how many more I missed). The page numbers refer to the paperback edition.
1. A woman with a femur broken in five places - imagine the cast - is not going to be seen having "curled herself into a ball".

By Barbara Rhoades TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
I find two drawbacks that make this novel hard to read: There are way too many typos. Whoever proofed this needs to find a new job. Written in 2001, I presume the print version doesn’t have such proof errors but the eBook, written in May 2014, needs help.

The second issue is that the grammar is terrible. I’m not talking about the words but rather the commas, hyphens and capitalizations. The same word, a name of someone for example, is hyphenated in one place and partially capitalized in another. Missing commas make sentences hard to understand.

Then there is the description of a ship listing to port. In the next three references about this ship, it stated that is listed more and more to starboard. I know port and starboard and those are opposite directions. Just more proofing errors that made the book less than fun to read for technical reasons.

Another distraction is that each chapter is a new location from the last. There is no continuity from chapter to chapter. For example, chapter 1 may be in Japan and chapter two finds you in Washington DC. This jumping makes it hard to keep up as you just get your mind into the city you are reading about and then it changes.

I had hoped for more spy novel than politics/military tack. I wanted to read about Briggs Tanner and not about the CIA people such as Stucky, although he ended up making a really good “bad guy”.

Once you got passed all the technical problems, the actual story was great. It didn’t get really good until about a third of the way through (due to all the jumping from place to place) and from then on, it was hard to put down. Briggs Tanner and Ian Cahill are my type of good guys to read about.

5.0 out of 5 stars End of Enemies: A Briggs Tanned Novel. 22 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A fantasticly written novel, so in depth with so many characters I wondered how the author kept track of them all, the story it's self will have the reader glued to it's pagers. The world situation are highlighted as if Grant Blackwood was a fully fledged politician. This is my first read of Briggs, a little scary when the Canaries come into because Fuerteventura is where I live. Enjoy this perfect thriller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too many typos! 8 Nov. 2014

This is the first book I have read by Grant Blackwood as a solo writer. Not a bad storyline once you got all the characters set up but there are some quite graphic scenes of torture which are not great to read at bedtime. My main complaint was the constant spelling errors. I don't know if it is just in this Kindle version but I found it extremely annoying.

A really good read.
You start off by thinking there are two stories running at the same time, but as the book unfolds it all becomes clear and was thoroughly enjoyable.
