B grade writing

It is kind of intriguing to have a minister go on spec-ops field trips as it allows the character to muse over what this sort of activity does to one's psyche or soul. It allows him to not kill in anger, and to be very careful about innocents. I guess it works.

What didn't work so well was the juvenile conversations and immature personality of the minister. He has an adolescent attraction to a beautiful woman who just happens to be the daughter of the #1 bad guy so he lets his guard down. When she eventually pulls a gun from under her skirt (didn't see that one coming, yeah right) he then describes her as "untrustworthy." That was a laughable line. I actually did laugh, and shake my head.

The actual take-down of said #1 bad guy was another head shaker. First our guy tracks him to a lonely cabin where an axe is seen on a chopping block. Our guy comments that this "really was a weapon of opportunity" but he doesn't take it! How stupid was he? Of course the bad guy does take it, but the axe is not the final weapon used. This ending could work out in real life I suppose, if the good guy is really, really lucky, but we usually expect our elite soldiers to win through skill and toughness. As a literary device, this scene didn't satisfy. This volume has ended my interest in the series.

Great continuation to the series! Can't wait to see what surprises the author has up his sleeve.

Almost, but not quite!

This tries really hard to be in the same league as Clancy, Flynn, et al, but it really isn't!

It's made more implausible by the fact that the main character is supposedly a Pastor! He allows himself to be put in a situation where he ends up killing more people than the other members of his team, and rushes off to do more superman stuff than Superman!

Add to that, the whole gunfight at the OK corale scene in the heart of London, further stretches credibility, especially worrying if it's a true indication of how little American 'Operatives' respect fellow 'allies' country and rules!

I was intrigued by the synopsis of a Spy Operative who is a Pastor but, the whole premise was thoroughly underwhelming!
