Publisher's Summary

When an ex-Delta Forces operative dies in a car wreck in Miami, the FBI dismiss it as a tragic accident. But Jon Reznick isn't so sure - especially when he learns that his teetotal former colleague was apparently drunk at the wheel.

Reznick's one-man investigation quickly enters dangerous territory when it becomes clear that this was merely the first in a series of mysterious deaths. All of the victims are ex-Delta Forces, and all were involved in a top-secret Iranian hit under Reznick's command. Retribution will not be complete until Reznick is wiped out too.

With Iran's ruthless Quds Force hunting him down on US soil, assisted by a powerful Mexican drug cartel determined to increase its own foothold in the country, Reznick's survival is a threat to national security. FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein is not as keen as some government officials to sacrifice him as collateral damage, but the longer Reznick runs, the more audacious his enemies become. Innocent American lives are at risk, and only Reznick's victory - or surrender - can save them.

Never a dull moment with Jon Reznick!

Would you listen to Hard Wired again? Why?

Maybe if I had nothing else to listen to and wanted something fast and fun!

Which scene was your favorite?

If I said it would give away that part of the book. I never could figure out why this question was asked.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this series. I listened to all four consecutively and HIGHLY RECOMMEND them when you are looking for a fast exciting book with likable characters. In this book someone is killing off the members of Reznick's former Delta team. He's also on the list. When he's taken into custody by the American military he realizes at the last minute that they are not trying to protect him, but instead are willing to betray him for the greater cause.
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating.

Another good read and listen..



So, I think this was my favorite so far. This one showed that Jon Reznick wasn’t invincible. He did get all the bad guys but was shot in the back in the process. It was about the 6 Delta Force guys that killed a scientist 6 year before and Iran wanted revenge. Reznick was the only one of the six to survive, just barely.

As always, there was a lot of chases and killing. And again he worked with Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein. They do make a good team, even if she wants everything done by the book and Reznick threw the book away a long time ago.

There was no sex but I get the feeling there’s romantic feelings between Martha and Jon.

And the F-bomb was used 52 times.

As to the narration: Still Jeffrey Kafer does good voices for the men but the women speak kind of low. It’s okay as long as there’s no sex. Then it would sound like two men. LOL

EPIC THRILLER

JB Turner puts the THRILL in THRILLER. Narrator Jeffrey Kafer delivers an epic performance making the book that much better.

I like Jon Resnick!

Another good Jon Reznick story. Full of action, terrorists, espionage, FBI and Jon.

This book is about a terrorist cell out for revenge on Jon's Delta group from an incident in Tehran.
The story line and plot was good. Fast paced, easy to follow and it all flowed very well.

As for the narration, it was very good. Jeffrey Kafer does a great narration. The women sound like women and he has a very nice reading voice.

A change of pace for Reznick

I liked the setup for this book. Something of a departure from the scenarios used for the plots earlier in the series, it played more strongly to the character's abilities and talents. The change of pace made the read refreshing and fun.

Technical editor is an idiot

Story and action are as good or better than the first two books.

Some technical details and story line details are implausible, however overall a decent story.

Hard wired

This was the best of the three. I was really glad that they changed the narrator. All in all not great books but something to listen to while driving or cleaning house

Jon Reznick cheats death...again!

J. B. Turner's Jon Reznick series excels at action and suspense. Hard Wired is Book 3 od what is a three novel series so far. Reznick continues to achieve the near impossible, but not without injury and near death. FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein is again a primary character in this novel that is about Iran attempting to kill the entire Delta Force team (including Reznick) that entered Iran to assassinate a scientist years ago. Iran has the active support of some key employees of the CIA. As in the prior to novels narration by Jeffrey Kafer is outstanding.

These novels are not great literature, but they do keep the attention of the listener.

Interesting story line, weak supporting characters.

This is book 3 in this series. Despite my enjoyment of the plot, I constantly frustrated with some of the recurring characters. In my humble opinion, the AD of the FBI should relocate her 'right hand man' Rob, because he has no learning curve! He continually degrades Jon's capabilities, tradecraft and intelligence, even though time after time his logical assessments Always helps them to achieve their end game. Anyone who is consistently obtuse & blinkered, is a liability to a team and cannot be depended on to do the right thing.

The AD herself is oftentimes illogical. Why did she need to go with the SWAT Team? That makes no strategic sense.

I'm happily listening to these novels, courtesy of my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I have 1 more to go, even though I know that there's a fifth book on the horizon. I doubt that I would persevere with this series beyond this book otherwise. Those character flaws irritate me - LOL.

Jon R is a Jack Reacher/John Milton combo. I like him, I'm sorry that he has this tendency to hang around with those FBI characters. He could do better! ;o)
