King And Maxwell
paperback
432 pages
It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father . . . after his supposed death.

Tyler hires Sean and Michelle, heroes of our tale, to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler’s father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target?

Sean and Michelle soon realize that they’ve stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets, Sean and Michelle are determined to help and protect Tyler–though they may pay for it with their lives.

If this sounds like a paint by the numbers tale, then that's because it certainly is, effortlessly gliding from one cliche to the next, from the two main character who play will they/won't they, to the super-dad coming back to save his son at all cost and the unassuming megalomaniac out to destroy the world.. as you near the end things get more desperate and the plot complete goes off the rails into the realms of farce.

Don't bother unless you have no choice..

End Game
paperback
416 pages
Action/crime drama meets super agent novel. Jessica Reel, a brave, capable, and independent sniper/assassin and Will Robie, a disciplined, focused and loyal FBI super agent, get pulled together when their superior disappears..

Whilst the action mves along nice, sounds like this last book in the series was one too many. Weird plot twists like the idea that in the middle of what is supposed to be an urgent search for a man he likes and admires, Will leaves the he woman he says he loves to go and have sex with a woman he hardly knows, and then walks out when he's done, not exactly gentleman like behaviour

The plot of this book is hence completely flawed. Too many bad guys popping up all over the place, too many conveniently staged rescues, too much sloppy characterisation and too little adequate motivation for what's happening.

Messy, find something else
