Over the top....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Severance Kill (Martin Calvary Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoy this sort of novel usually....set in the murky world of espionage and assassinations with an anti hero fighting impossible odds to achieve his aim. This is the first nove O have read by this author and he certainly delivers in the action area. In fact this was the problem....he delivers too much. The hero is a multi talented assassin ....an expert at most things it seems....but nevertheless gets himself injured several times along the way fighting a multitude of both Russian gangsters and Russian spies and special forces. The whole tale revolves around long car chases around Prague destroying most of the cities vehicles in the process and building up an amazingly high death count. So much, in fact, that it takes the story from being good, escapist, edge of the seat reading to a totally over the top unbelievable video game style romp.
It was OK but just too over the top making it a bit of an action farce.
