The Hunted Assassin: A High-Octane Science Fiction Adventure Kindle Edition
She was his fiancé …
… before he faked his own death.
Would she be shocked or just angry to find him alive?
Martin has made bad decisions. None worse than taking the job of assassin for the company. But, a close second would be how he left that job. The unimagined consequences were never part of his plan.
Eight years he remained hidden.
How'd they find him? How did they know he was alive?
Suddenly, with a bounty on his head, he had no choice; he'd have to run. Life off Earth was never easy, but heading into the Outer Ring was nearly unimaginable. Martin would need help, but who could he count on?
It had to be someone he could trust.
It had to be Camille.
You’ll love this high-octane science fiction adventure, because rooting for Martin to ‘right the wrongs’ in his life, makes you keep turning the pages.

Here's a couple...
Spaceships doing odd things, passengers sensing a change in a ships 'momentum', specifying a specific location in space using longitude and latitude, and the authors complete lack of understanding of what would happen to a human body subjected to a total vacuum.
The author also repeatedly used the word 'strafed' to describe how his main character moved down a passageway. My dictionary defines it as a type of attack by an aircraft. I don't think he was using it correctly. It gave me a pause every time I encounter it.
His approach to writing about highly trained, experienced, assassins didn't ring true. Instead of behaving as the experienced operators they were suppose to be they just seem to bumble their way from one situation to another. They repeatedly had slow reflexes, hesitated to shoot, left opponents alive in one situation and killed them cruelly in another, and never used stealth as a tactic.
I won't be reading follow on books.
Jaxon is a dead man walking. Eight years ago, he and a colleague faked their deaths to get away from “the company.” When he’s forced out of hiding, shock reverberates, from the fellow agents who’d heard of him to the beautiful Camille, who as his former fiancée has a more personal, vested interest in his unexpected “resurrection.”
Jaxon has to complete the current mission. Camille is an unwilling teammate, refusing to forgive him for faking his death and hurting her. Too much is at stake for Jaxon to allow personal feelings to get in the way. He has to save lives, even though an enemy may be closer than he realizes.
If you’re looking for more Paul Kohler, his shorter works are also amazing. Borrowed Souls is a riveting short story. It offers a cross-section of life in a bureaucracy, with a petty, tyrannical functionary as a boss.
“[He] was trying to fit his head through the neck of his secretary’s blouse. It would have fit, too, if it weren't for her still being in it.”
Linear Shift is a series of four short stories. Single father Peter tries to raise two teens, loses his job, and is on the edge of losing his home. When a face from his military past surfaces with the answer to all of his problems, Peter embarks on an exciting secret mission.
Through flashbacks to the hero's past, we learn about his previous missions, his previous relationships and lots of unfinished business in his life. Jaxon has been living a lie for the past 8 years.
Some quotes from the story:
"Martin repacked his satchel with all the weapons that he'd scavenged from the assassins before doing a final pass through of the warehouse, hoping to pilfer any additional items he might need."
"If you ask me, you look like some kind of techno-nerd. Because that suit looks out of this world. I've been up on this rock looking down on earth for coming up on six years now and boy, let me tell you. That is on fancy, suit yer wearin' there."
"They've told me that you are a positive thinker. Always looking at the bright side of things."
"...her raging fear jackknifing into righteous joy at seeing life fill his eyes."
I have also read and thoroughly enjoyed a previously released set of books called Borrowed Souls. I will definitely be looking for more books by this talented author Paul Kohler.
