Robert "Lee" Rand is on a hit list; he is also on the nation's most wanted and terrorist lists as well. But he is an innocent pawn to larger powers who have turned all the nation's powers against him and a few fellow former college students who were involved in a drug test program years ago. Mr. P calls in one of the best; Jonathan Lord is a renowned U.S. Marshal, who is always successful in getting his man. His assignment is to track down and capture the dangerous and notorious Rand. The chase is on, but some how every time Lord gets a lead, someone is there first and murders the person of interest.
Although the plot was obviously kindled from "The Fugitive" series, "The Rand Principle" still has an engaging plot and interesting premise with just enough original twists and turns to make it interesting. Thompson's story is exciting, well paced, and with interesting characters; all of which make "The Rand Principle" a very satisfying read. This story grabs one from the opening pages, and just when one thinks one knows what is going to happen, Thompson pulls the rug on the reader! Although I could only give it "4 Stars," "The Rand Principle" is a very satisfying ride. So "fasten your seat belt; it's going to be a bumpy ride!" Give this story a try; I think you too will enjoy it!
The ending seemed rushed and inconclusive.
This is a tale that grabs you from the opening page, takes you to the precipice of what you *think* is going to happen -- then yanks you another way entirely and takes you on a quick journey that leaves you constantly guessing, but never confused or frustrated.
All in all, a fantastic read. I'd gladly read a sequel.
Sometimes it takes a few years to stumble across the next author that keeps you anxious for the next read. Jack Thompson did just that for me! I regained my interest for reading ever since I started his book. I am so pleased to take his journey in the world of words!
The Rand Principle was a fascinating from the beginning to end. It grabs your interest and curiosity from the moment you start reading it. The characters became vivid in my imagination. This book was well written, didn't kill you with boring 3 page descriptions of scenery as some authors do. It gets to the point and lets you travel quickly through the mysterious plot. I was very happy with the ending as well. I loved this book and can't wait to read more of this exciting author. 5 stars to Mr. Thompson!
The topic was interesting and the potential was there. The first chapter or two was pretty good but it went downhill fast and the execution was just terrible. I thought the overall plot was weak, the characters superficial; the entire story choppy.
All throughout the chase the story just kept getting more and more ridiculous. Ultimately, Rand meeting Lord and helping him "see"; Rand & Jade using their collective "gifts" to deflect capture; the demise of Mr. P......what an unbelievable waste of valuable reading time. Like I said, I could slap myself for finishing this stupid story.
Thank goodness it's over and there are other engaging books to read.
