Hard Road (Jon Reznick #1) Reviews
So, Jon Reznick worked for the government as an assassin and, boy, he was a cold blooded killer. He usually went to other countries but this time he was assigned to kill an American. Which he was going to do until something didn’t feel right and he took off with his assignment until he could figure out what was going to do. He didn’t mind killing really evil men but he wasn’t feeling that from Luntz.
This story was exciting from beginning to end and I will definitely read more of the Jon Reznick ...more
* I received a free copy of the book by the author through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. *
This is a solid thriller with good characters and good writing.
I was happy to have an assassin who actually sensed something was off before he killed his target. As we all know it rarely happens that way, he kills the wrong guy then its all "why did you make me do that?" but thankfully no such nonsense here.
I liked Jon Reznick he's definitely a character that piques your interest and I'm cur ...more
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
I purchased this as an audiobook and am a bit disappointed with it. Neither the writing nor the narration were my cup of tea. I found the language a bit terse and the cussing seemed arbitrary and forced at times. I cannot tell if it is due to how the book was written or how it was interpreted by the narrator. I found my mind wandering during the narration and frequently checking how much time had passed. Since this was the first book in a series, I assume and hope the remaining books were better ...more
A good light read
Want somebody to read that's enjoyable, while in a mellow mood, this one fits the bill. Not one that is over whelming.
J.B. Turner's Jon Reznick is the type of guy who can shut out most of the despicable things he has to do before they can haunt him to such and extent that they either ruin his life by emotionally crippling him or causing him to lose a much needed edge in his chosen profession. And that's likely a good thing because Reznick's job is killing people. Mostly dirt bags. "Hard Road" introduces Reznick somewhat two dimensionally. He's hired to do a job a little out of his comfort zone. OK. A little arm ...more
Plot was okay. Writing not so good. There was too much detail given to what people wore and what a room looked like and not enough detail in the actions of the characters. It was very predictable and the ending was somewhat disappointing.
IMO, there are much better books of this genre out there.
J.B. Turner has written a suspenseful story about black ops specialist Jon Reznick who is sent to kill a man. The mission is compromised, and Reznick finds himself on the run with his intended target.
Along the way, his eleven-year-old daughter is kidnapped, and he has to use all his skills to rescue her. And oh yeah, he has to stop a biological weapon from killing thousands of people.
Though the action was good, I didn’t feel anything for Reznick. Even when his daughter was kidnapped, I just did ...more
