Hard Road (Jon Reznick #1) Reviews
I purchased this as an audiobook and am a bit disappointed with it. Neither the writing nor the narration were my cup of tea. I found the language a bit terse and the cussing seemed arbitrary and forced at times. I cannot tell if it is due to how the book was written or how it was interpreted by the narrator. I found my mind wandering during the narration and frequently checking how much time had passed. Since this was the first book in a series, I assume and hope the remaining books were better ...more
Jon Resnick is a black-ops agent for the government who essentially murders people the government spooks want murdered without question and without trial. His wife died in the 9-11 terrorist attacks and left him with their baby daughter who he has help caring for by his mother-in-law. He is surprised when his handler sends him to a hotel to kill an American in the USA- usually he kills foreigners in foreign countries or foreigners in the USA but something goes wrong.He is supposed to set it up t ...more
I have to start by saying that this feels like a Tom Clancy Op Center story. Not a copy, and the organizations and plots are very different. What I mean is that J.B. Turner builds the tension in a way that you really do feel like the world is under threat. This book gave me that feeling, you know the one, the one where you just know that this is going to be a long series of books that needs to be purchased. This is story is based more around the FBI than a shadowy grey ops agency but the additio ...more
3 1/2 stars
An action packed suspense that you won't want to miss! With a complex storyline, interesting characters, secrets, lies, betrayal, intense situations, danger, and intriguing twists, this story will have you on the edge of your seat till the end. A great beginning to this exciting series!
I really enjoyed the mystery and suspenseful nature of this book, as well as the characters. There were a few times during the beginning of the story where the details of past missions, etc. got a littl ...more
I would say this is one of the top thrillers J. B. Turner's first in the Jon Reznick series I totally agree with
Jacqui Review I have all is book on my Tablet our ready to read
Exciting non stop action
First book I've read by this author and I can only say bring on the next one. The main character is believable as was the story. Great book.
Mmmm, I have to say when I read the reviews previous to reading the book I was a little unsure. I don't normally read the reviews but for some reason n this case I did and the feeling seems very mixed. I decided to get on with it and found myself straight in from chapter one, swept away with the characters and story line. Jon Reznick is not a good guy, nor is he a bad guy! He's ex Delta Forces and has been given a job by his handler. When Reznick turns up to carry out the high level hit, somethi ...more
Decent thriller. No complaints. Nothing extraordinary either.
