The plot is pretty common former insiders being branded rogue and hunted by new (rogue) insiders. Starts well, then goes floppy in the middle before a shoot out at the bad guys ranch.... (actually is it a revenge western set in Europe?)
The love interest is superficial, as is the hero's angst about his lost son. The love interest's angst about killing someone doesn't have any impact on the story either. A lot of padding.
There are just enough clever twists, in the three intertwined story lines, and reveals to hold my interest.
It might make a good movie, Short stories do.
The story lacked credibility and originality.
It was totally irrelevant where it was set.
The hero can head shot a million baddies and still get back for tea and never rumple a shirt or muss a hair. Despite being betrayed on all sides he happily trusts and confides in the first and only love interest in the book.
Bottom line, a rather weak modern day James Bond caricature.
