Publisher's Summary

This box set contains books five to eight in The Silencer Series, including:

Point Blank

After six months away in Detroit, Recker and Jones return their operation to Philadelphia. They're almost immediately thrown into trying to prevent a cop killing. They also come back to find things aren't quite the way they left them.

One of the city's crime leaders tries to force Recker's hand, by using Mia as bait in helping them take control of the city. Despite getting the cold shoulder from Mia initially upon his return, Recker works hard at freeing her from danger, taking her to the only place he knows she'll be safe.

It leads to a violent conclusion - one that finds Recker working with the police by his side.

Double Tap

Recker and Jones go hunting to add a third member to the team. After an exhaustive search, Jones has finally found the perfect candidate. Former CIA Operative Chris Haley has been out of the game for a couple of years, but jumps at the chance to jump back into things as the new Silencer.

As Recker and Haley start settling in with their new work dynamic, things don't go as smoothly as they have in the past. They get into a rough situation that leads to Recker getting put in handcuffs and taken away in a police car.

Can Jones engineer Recker's release? Or, will they once again become a two-man team with only Jones and Haley? 

Hollow Point

Somebody is shooting police officers. After several killings and no progress on finding the shooter by the police department, Recker is asked to lend a hand.

One of Vincent's men inside the department, a homicide detective, reaches out to the Silencer, setting up a meeting through Vincent. As Recker, Haley, and Jones investigate the killings, they start to find more questions than answers, and realize that everything is not as cut and dried as it seems.

Once the supposed killer is finally found, Recker thinks he may have been played. He's not so sure that it wasn't a plant and the man was framed. All of which leads him to question: If it's someone else behind the shootings, who has the power and motivation to pull it off? And why?

High Velocity

There's a new criminal element in town, and they state their arrival by knocking off a few of Vincent's men. Recker and the team get drawn into the middle of it and start investigating to learn the identity of the mystery player.

Recker and Haley get a tip about a high-level meeting of the new crew in an abandoned building, but all is not what it seems. Instead of a meeting, they run into Malloy, who's also there to investigate, and an otherwise empty building. It turns out to be an ambush, and only two of the three will escape uninjured.

Will they find out who's responsible for the attack and bring them to their brand of justice? Or, will the perpetrators slip out from under their fingers to cause more chaos and destruction?

These are good!

Yeah, ok..a bit cookie cutter but the pace is solid and the interaction is realistic. It’s the right amount of fun, action, decency, and humanism. Even though you know what’s going to happen you still keep wanting to listen...until the end of the chapter...like potato chips...good until the bag is empty! Narrator nails it!

Giving Credit when it's due, This Series Kicks Ass

You've got to start at the very first one and read it listen to the all in order, otherwise you would miss something important to the series.
the box sets here are a great value as well! Just waiting on the next box series but already purchased the next title on its own! they're that good!

Who edits these?

Why pay for a sup par product? Repeating phrases in both box sets. Sounds like they forgot to review and edit these titles.

Endings Not So Good

The endings are very blunt and anticlimactic They really don’t flow like the rest of the books

Only Every Four Episodes... so not worth purchasing each title individually!

POINT BLANK

I was a bit disappointed with this episode, given how the last one (Blowback) showed progress in the series, this one seemed like a step back. That may be because the central theme of this episode was around Mia, the nurse, who I really don’t like.

I don’t like including spoilers in a review, so I won’t, but I feel that the whole premise of the story, the plot, the outcomes, seem a bit unnecessary. So it feels a bit like a non-story...

I admit that this is an unusual ‘novel’. It’s essentially a TV episode in book form. I’m slowly getting used to it. It would be better transferred to screen, as I find this a bit unsettling when approached as a book. 3 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️

DOUBLE TAP

Episode 6 introduces us to Chris Haley, the new Silencer who joins Mick Recker. He’s unknown to the people who know about Mike. David wants to keep Chris quiet. So this episode shows what he can do, working alone and working with Recker.

That’s it. They have 3 close calls, where Recker needed the backup and then a bigger operation (which was not THAT big)! Silencer bonding. The End. (Btw: Mia is still tedious <sigh>).

Listening to the audiobook of these titles is probably the best way to devour this series. It’s still a TV episode to me, so the audio version lends itself to a production. 3 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️

HOLLOW POINT

Episode 7 is more of a story. Interesting yet unresolved (I don’t know if it gets resolved in a future episode). As I’ve stated in practically all of my previous reviews, this is not a series of novels, it’s a series of ‘expanded screenplays’ of a TV series. It’s perfect to transfer from book to small screen as is, and I can only think that the reason that it hasn’t happened already, is because the TV series ’Person Of Interest’ beat him to it (& in my opinion was a much better storyline).

I’m giving it 3½ stars because it’s not a fully fledged story - I’m guessing that it’s not supposed to be - it’s the backdrop of a couple of the cases that Mike and Chris work on together. In one of them, the tedious Mia assists. (I’m hoping that at some point, Mike Ryan writes a storyline around her that makes her more endearing on paper). Also I look forward to seeing a storyline in which Chris is the focus - on his own - that might change the dynamic a little.

Brian Hutchison. is a very able narrator and makes this series a very easy ‘read’. 3½ Stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️✨

HIGH VELOCITY

Every 4 episodes this ‘season’ gets interesting! This is the best thus far, but reinforces the fact that this is not a novel, but a TV episode. It ends, not on a cliffhanger, but more on a ‘To be continued...’ fade to outro and end credits.

I have a couple of continuity gripes (which I can’t mention without giving away plot spoilers), they’re not major but may be relevant!! Perhaps one will be picked up in episode 9.

This is the only title that has me interested to read the next episode. You know; to be continued... 4 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

If ‘Close Range’ is not the page turner I expect then, despite the great narration by Brian Hutchison, it will be my last.
This Boxset was worth 1 credit - not sure that a single title would be...
