The story takes off after that, bringing back Han, our hero/villain from the first two books. The story was great and had plenty of twists and turns that made it very hard to guess where it was going to end. I loved the idea of the Consortium and thought this was a very inventive way of taking the trilogy in a bold new direction.
The story was a real mix of ideas, with some cracking action sequences, a brilliant kung fu movie style student and master training sequence and a vicious new killer looking to steal Han's thunder. This new killer's executions were part Mortal Kombat fatality and part Saw trap. As a massive fan of both these franchises this is intended as a huge compliment.
The movie references we know and love are all present and correct, two favourites being reference to the epic battle over the sunglasses in 'They Live' and Han's request to skip his strenuous training regime with a montage a la 'Team America'. These references add a nice touch of humour to proceedings.
The final few chapters deserve a special mention for being nigh on impossible to put down and the final battle was a worthy competitor to the aforementioned 'They Live' brawl which is possibly the greatest fight in cinema history.
In conclusion, this was a brilliant read. It fits in well with the other two in the series. My favourite is still the second book, but this was outstanding in its own right. Highly recommended.
This was utterly brilliant. Despite the fact that is the third in a series, the story shows no signs of flagging at all. The pace was brutal, grabbing me from the beginning, and hurtling me face first into the explosive climax. This could easily be made into a feature film, maybe with John Woo at the helm! Han is still the flawed hero (or antihero?) but his previous experiences have changed him somewhat, he seems more emotional and introspective now. Once again there was only a small cast but from a small cast came a BIG story. It is essential that one reads the others or else many things in the book won't make sense. I do hope there are more as I feel Han's tale is not quite told yet!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
In this, the third, novel we see Han employed by the shadowy Troy Consortium to kill only selected targets in the interests of national security. However, all is not well within the organisation and Han must face a killer as accomplished as himself. Rod Glenn knows how to write a gripping page turner. I tend to read his novels quickly as they are difficult to put down. Sinema 3 is all action and Han becomes something of a Bruce Willis type action hero as he is forced to face life threatening situations. As usual the banter is excellent and Glenn tests your film knowledge with several references. Han is still haunted by the ghosts of Haydon but will he be able to lay them to rest?
Rod Glenn has brought us another great read that I recommend highly
So Han finds himself recovering from grievous bodily destruction at the expense and motivation of the Troy Consortium, an assassination organisation operating in the UK. As the most prolific killer in UK history, Han was naturally chosen to join the firm. But assignments start going wrong and it appears that the Consortium is compromised.
What follows is murder, bloodshed and annihilation of unimaginable proportions. The gore and guts factor is as disturbing as ever. The story line (although a bit far fetched in my opinion) is gripping and as with the other books, it's not a dark, depressing account of murder. Han's somewhat comedic personality definitely lightens the overall feel of the book. I found all three books in the series very enjoyable and would highly recommend them. Not one book stands out above the others. The only question I have is: when is Sinema 4 being published?
