TOP 500 REVIEWERon 30 August 2015
As other reviewers have mentioned, this book will remind some of the Bourne trilogy. The similarity is about an unscrupulous and beyond the radar government agency taking a former elite soldier and enhancing him both physically and mentally to make him into the “perfect and ultimate killer”. The agency is an appendix of Homeland Security tasked (or self-tasking itself?) with targeted assassinations of what could loosely be called “enemies of the State”, except that it is not the Head of State that defines the targets…

There are however numerous differences as well. Here the killer is manipulated at will. He is motivated by reprogramming his mind with artificial and fake memories that make him seek personal vengeance against the targets that he is assigned and, in between missions, he is given a completely different persona that has no idea of what he is capable of doing.

As also mentioned by others, the book is fast paced and – unsurprisingly for the genre - action packed. Some scenes are particularly well executed. One is the assault on the compound of a Mexican drug cartel. Another is a man hunt by a kill team of snipers with nigh sight equipment in a forest. A third is a horrendous firefight in an animation park. Then you have a number of interesting twists in the plot, which I will NOT reveal but which are quite surprising, at least for some of them. One additional and particularly interesting feature is that of split personalities, as the reprogrammed killer realises that he is manipulated and fights it

This is an uncomplicated thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and finished in an afternoon during which I must confess that I did nothing else. Four strong stars for a good read and for spending an entertaining and relaxing afternoon.

From the beginning this book was reminiscent of the Bourne trilogy but in a rushed fashion with one dimensional characters. Good enough for a light read but difficult to engage with.

A roller coaster ride with more twists and turns than a snake. Its an all action tale that has an ending that is tailor made for a sequel so get writing Vaughn.
