This was a really entertaining thriller. fast paced, exciting, intelligent. I have read all of Rucka's work but his Atticus Kodiak novels are my favourite. This is item 6 in that series. Fans of Lee Child, Robert Crais etc will enjoy this series. If you haven't read any, start at the beginning with (in order)
Shooting at Midnight
Critical Space and then this one, Patriot Acts.
All feature professional bodyguard and security expert Atticus kodiak. Think Jack Reacher, lighter of build, heavier of brain and you'll be close. All are fast moving, with reoccuring characters and intersecting story arcs and all feature lots of action. What i love about these is the planning and intricate set up that goes into the client protection and bad guy entrapment. totally absorbing. In the last 2 books, Kodiak has taken a serious change in his life and because of associations he has made, is now considered a bad guy by the US government. This novel focusses on his attempts to clear his name, win back his freedom and avenge the death of his best friend. Of course, when your adversary is a White House official, things get a little complex....
read it and enjoy the thrill!
