Revised and Re-Edited
You can’t beat Schneider’s “Jessie Carr series” to get you out of a reading rut. In Black Talon, the 4th book in the series, Jessie is confronted with the inexplicable death of his best friend and the disappearance of Simone the girl Jessie had saved from a life of drugs and prostitution during his vengeful quest to get the people that raped and killed his wife.
This plot is intertwined with the constant high action of the growing Black Talon Security and Personal Protection business. On the cusp of the invasion of Iraq the members of Black Talon are in high demand from protection details in Europe and Asia to the deserts of the Pakistani border using their unique and eclectic skill sets (mostly in the deadly arts) to protect those that need protecting and remove (with extreme prejudice) those that wish to bring harm to Jessie’s inner circle.
Reading Jessie Carr is not only escapism at its best; it touches something in your psyche that makes you wish that you could be a little bit like Jessie (OK, maybe more than just a little).
