"He wishes that he had time to smoke a cigarette,
on 5 March 2013
that this night wasn't turning into a cherry-busting party for him: his first kill and his first time shooting real rounds from an automatic weapon"
Jack Palms, an actor that is known from a Bruce Willis style action flick where he played police sergeant Mike Haggerty, is involved in his second dangerous case and once again he must work with a contact from the police and an old former NFL star acquaintance. Things, however, are spinning completely out of control when it turns out that there are several different players working against them - from the Russian mafia to the San Francisco police department.
I guess if you take this as a light entertainment thriller chase (not unlike a Bruce Willis movie), the book is ok as it's well paced and easy to read. However, if the concept of an actor, who starred as a police man in one blockbuster movie, can go in and take over an investigation and that the police and FBI would be willing to let him loose like that annoys you, I'd say stay clear and read something else. There are also a fair bit of gratuitous violence in most of the middle part of the book which I found annoying - especially since it wasn't very innovative - he basically seemed to butt a lot of noses.
I finished it, but will not be reading other instalments in this series. Oh, and this is the second book in the series.
