I have to start by saying that this feels like a Tom Clancy Op Center story. Not a copy, and the organizations and plots are very different. What I mean is that J.B. Turner builds the tension in a way that you really do feel like the world is under threat. This book gave me that feeling, you know the one, the one where you just know that this is going to be a long series of books that needs to be purchased. This is story is based more around the FBI than a shadowy grey ops agency but the additio ...more

Hard Road was an exciting and fast-paced read with an interesting plot and I really enjoyed it.

As far as the American government is concerned, Jon Reznick does not exist. His orders come in by phone and he carries out off book assignments with no hesitation. When Reznick is given his next target and told to make it look like a suicide, he immediately sets out to complete a task he’s done dozens of times before. However this time, something is wrong. The information he was given does not

Jon Resnick is a black-ops agent for the government who essentially murders people the government spooks want murdered without question and without trial. His wife died in the 9-11 terrorist attacks and left him with their baby daughter who he has help caring for by his mother-in-law. He is surprised when his handler sends him to a hotel to kill an American in the USA- usually he kills foreigners in foreign countries or foreigners in the USA but something goes wrong.He is supposed to set it up t ...more

This is another series where I've bought the first few before starting any, on the suspicion that it will be my sort of book, based on the reviews, so I will want to read the rest and so might as well get them while they're cheap. While this was not all that original (ex-Special Forces hunk with a tragic past and a vulnerable daughter, who contracts as an assassin for a secret government agency, finds himself on the run,not knowing who he can trust, after a hit goes wrong and the body count moun ...more

Disclosure:

I won this book in a goodreads giveaway. Goodreads encourages, but does not require, winners to review the book.

Review:

First of all, this is book 1 in a series and I will be reading the rest of the series. I like this hero. He seems to be more like a real person than a lot of thriller protagonists. Of course, he's the hero of the book and it IS a thriller, so he does things that most people wouldn't do, but between his feats of derring-do, he seems to be mostly normal.

I also like the

Firstly I would like to thank Net Galley, the publishers and the author for copies of all three Jon Reznick books and my apologies for the delay.

Secondly I would quite happily have paid for this book, the first in the series of the Jon Reznick books. A fast paced action packed thriller.

It is always a great pleasure to discover a new author, or one new to the reader. J B Turner was new to me, but this will not be the last of his books that I am going to read. “Hard Road” is an excellent thriller, reaching from Maine to Florida, and points in between. The hero, Jon Reznick, is former Delta force, now doing contract work, mostly assassinations, for the government.

I don't like spoilers, so I will not describe the plot of the book, but I will say that the pace of the book is relent
