Format: Kindle Edition
Killer Protocols is not the sort of novel I would usually read. Thus, I was (wrongly) expecting to slog through a story on the premise of having committed myself to the act of doing so. Instead, I've spent every spare minute (and I don't get many) reading this book, significantly in the middle of the night, which seems most fitting, given the genre.

The plot is truly compelling, although it really shouldn't be, in the sense that it is told through matter-of-fact, first person narrative with barely any variation in emotion. The main character (Richard Paladin) is fascinating, with his cold, stark perspective on life, which obviously shapes his approach to his work, and even the way he questions the orders he is given. That said, there are couple of nice little twists in there where we get to see a little deeper into Paladin's soul, and some wonderfully subtle, dry humour.

I can't say much more than this without giving the story away, but I have to admit I'm hooked and eager to read the rest of the Richard Paladin series.

Killer Protocol, the first in the Richard Paladin series, is a suspenseful and engaging thriller that keeps you guessing all the way through. The protagonist, Paladin, is a lonely and cynical person, which is probably a good thing as he is a government hit man. So when this hot-blooded assassin's inner humanity begins to force him to question some of the targets being selected for him, the foundations of his life and number of people he can trust starts to wither, forcing him to use all of his skill to tackle the various known and unknown enemies now occupying his world.

A thoroughly enjoyable thriller, I look forward to reading more Paladin...
