Publisher's Summary

Jon Reznick is a "ghost": a black-ops specialist who takes his orders from shadowy handlers, and his salary from the US government. Still mourning the loss of his beloved wife on 9/11, he's dispatched to carry out a high-level hit. Reznick knows only that it must look like suicide. It's textbook.

But the target is not the man Reznick expected. The whole setup is wrong. In an instant the operation is compromised, and Reznick is on the run with the man he was sent to kill. A man wanted by the FBI, and by a mysterious terrorist organization hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees. FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein is determined to track him down, and to intercept whatever it is Reznick was sent to do.

When Reznick's young daughter becomes a pawn in the game, he has to use more than his military training to stay one step ahead of those responsible. Meanwhile, he is the only person who knows the true extent of the threat to national security - and has the stealth and determination to stop it.

Rubbish

Badly written and terribly narrated. Not recommended. A waste of time. Couldn't finish it. Awful.

Plenty of Action

I really enjoyed this book. I've had it a while and finally listened to it, then I listened to the whole series! This is a good solid espionage thriller with lots of action.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this book and the entire series.
Narration by Jeffrey Kafer is excellent.

I almost never rate 5 stars

This is a great gripping thriller. It's interesting through the entire book. I've read hundreds of this genre. It becomes harder and harder to find a great book. This is in the top 5%.

Hard Road

If you have ever been drawn into intrigue you could not walk away from, even in the dark night, well you found it again. Hard Road is a mystery behind every blade of grass be careful now. Get plenty of sleep, lock you're doors have plenty of refreshments. Now you are ready. Enjoy as I have.

Above Average

The writing is good. Character development ok, could be better. Detail minimal. There is just enough of each element to convey the story with tension, suspense, and interest. However, there isn't enough to really add texture and depth. And while we cheer for the good guys, there really isn't enough about him, his daughter (no stories of things they did together, no memories of a birthday, Christmas shared) that the reader really doesn't get emotionally attached. I wish there was more to the characters, more descriptions of location, people .- that there was more depth and developed.

Very Surprised!

I’m a die hard James Patterson fan.. took a chance with this book- it was friended to me.. so why Not? Exactly what I want to tell you all- Why Not, there is no reason! I was drawn to Jon Reznick’s character.. just the way I did with Alex Cross in the Cross Series and Michael Bennett. A must for a true lover of detective- suspense type thrillers. Highly recommended!

Book 1 is great!

Loved it! Lots of twists and turns, multiple things going on but all interconnected! I'll definitely read the next ones in the series.

Awful narrator

The story sounds good but the narration on this book is so awful that you cannot concentrate on the story. Only got to chapter five and couldn't listen to any more. Probably a good book but ruined

Great story, Awful narration

I like this type of story. It's short and to the point with not a lot of padding. I was going to give up early on due to the narrators narrow range but the good story kept me wanting to find out what happened next.

Good story, incompetent narrator u.

Determined to get to the end of this good story but each time I listened to the narrator I cringed. My grandson of 2 has better understanding of how to read with passion. Shame,don't think I can face anymore of JBTurners books if it is the same narrator

A good book but poor narration.

The story was good, and moved well what let the book down for me was the rhythmic and droning narrator. Once you notice this, that’s it it’s the same all the way through.

Good introduction to Jon Reznick character.

Took a while to listen to this audio book, but happy I did. Looking forward to listening to more of the Jon Reznick series by the author. The narration was well paced.

A hard road but not a hard read

This is the first J B Turner I’ve read and the first in the Reznick series, but it won’t be the last. A great fast paced story, plenty of twists and turns and some good solid characters.
If you like Lee Child then you will like this

nice story

A one time read for sure. I am happy I tried this. The plot is slow and needs motivation to complete
