Praise for ALPHA (.)
Cynical hero, unrelenting villains and a story told at rocket-fuelled pace...has a speed and conviction that sets it apart. The perfect airplane read (Daily Mail)
A tough, action-filled thriller that starts at a gallop and never slows down (Canberra Times)
Hands down, the most exciting, adrenaline-pumping, butt-kicking novel I've read in years. (Christopher Reich)
'Pulse-pounding...Rucka mixes suspense and an alarmingly realistic plot with ease.' (Publishers Weekly)
This lean, mean thriller with just the right amount of character development and unexpected complications will appeal to all who enjoy this genre but particularly to readers who like a strong hero along the lines of Lee Child's Jack Reacher. (Library Journal)
The hunt for their enemy leads a special forces team to a much darker threat in the second thrilling novel in the Jad Bell series by New York Times bestselling author Greg Rucka.See all Product description

Bravo picks up literally where Alpha left off, and propels you into an action sequence worthy of anything you can read today penned by other respected combat operations authors.
I found Rucka years ago through Finder and Keeper, and earlier Queen and Country novels.
I think Jad Bell is as good a character as Rucka has ever created. I hope this is a long series. There are plenty of letters remaining after A and B.
The more or less consistent use of "handles" for his characters. This was the only negative for me in "Alpha", and I found it increasingly difficult to figure out who was who among the team, or to really care about people identified mostly by off-putting code names.
The lack of interesting locale. Wilsonville made "Alpha" stand apart from other thrillers, but "Bravo" has nothing comparable going for it.
The main story is familiar enough (minor spoiler alert), in fact it somewhat repeats "Alpha", but there is a secondary story that almost overwhelms it in interest and intensity. That is the theme of female undercover operatives and their attachment to their controllers. It is a powerful message and quite well done, but it is odd to find Jad Bell edged out of the center of the story. I found the parts of the story involving Jad's deaf daughter Athena to be quite good.
I won't say more about the unraveling of the threat except to note that I don't understand the need to invent enemies when there are so many real ones around.
