Patterson has created a new character who takes us on an amazing thrill ride. Titus is clever, fast, strong, and a bit of a loose cannon. He is highly dedicated to his country and will work, even against his own organization, to keep his country and his people safe. The novel is well written and the characters are well developed. The settings are nicely described which makes visualizing the events easy for the reader. I look forward to the next installment in the series and where the character will take us next.
On this assignment (and the beginning of a new series), Titus Black is donning his scuba gear and on his way to a covert mission to rescue an AF pilot downed by a SAM. The pilot is being held in a Russian prison and the rescue is on.
There is a lot of action and adventure in this novel. Toss in a murder, and a mystery for more excitement! The addition of Tatiana, a 15 year old girl, adds an extra depth to this one. Wow is a good word to describe that entire plot line.
Excellent character development, a multi- layered plot line coupled with intense action will keep the reader on the edge of their seats. And, I will read on when the next one is available.
Most highly recommended.
One thing to remember, this is a fiction novel. There are liberties taken, that as a former USAF member are not realistic, but in the vein of fiction I can accept them. The action is fast, the intrigue is twisted and convoluted, the mystery and suspense are enough to really keep you glued to the book.
Some people may prefer the perfect GI Joe patriotic character, but Titus Black is human enough to be relatable with enough amount of superhero in him to be inspiring. Working for the CIA in a rescue operation, he accidentally finds about a different turbulent situation developing behind the enemy lines. Attempting to save his Country –while at the same time antagonizing with US authorities –Titus Black must work his way up to the President to fix the trouble. The only problem is the President wants him dead.
One of the many positive aspects of Jack Patterson's books is ability to engage the reader from the first paragraph and then sustain that level of interest until the story is complete. Nowhere is that gift more important than in writing mystery thrillers. For a taste of this new series (a very timely one), the opening of the book follows: ‘Titus Black checked all his scuba gear one final time as the lockout trunk filled up with water. He took a deep breath to calm his nerves. Missions that involved time in the ocean ranked last in his list of favorite assignments. “How are you doing in there?” asked Christina Shields, Black’s handler at the secret black ops program Firestorm, in her sultry voice. “It’s a day at the beach,” Black said. “For most people, that’d be a good thing,” she said. “But I know you’re not like most people.” “Give me a mountain with five hostiles on the ridge any day.”’ And in that short opener Patterson has our complete attention held to the last page.
The synopsis: ‘Titus Black is a survivor. Even after getting ousted from the CIA, Black managed to land on his feet. And while his government may have quit on him, he’s not about to quit on it … even when he’s falsely accused of murder …When black ops agent Titus Black embarks on a rescue mission, he comes back with more than just a left-for-dead pilot—he comes back with questions about an alleged secret operation that threatens to shatter trust in the U.S. military. As Black and the clandestine organization he works for start to unravel the mystery, he finds himself caught in the crosshairs of a plot to silence him. But if Black intends on getting justice and exposing the corruption, he must avoid capture and save the one man who wants him dead more than anything … the President of the United States.’
Another first class thriller from the talented Jack Patterson. Grady Harp, October 19
