With the constant shuffling of authors, the Covert-One series has had its ups and downs. The Janus Reprisal falters to the lower end of the scale.
Events, circumstances, and decisions by the characters often defy all logic and reason - starting with the opening scene. Terrorists engage in a prolonged attack inside major hotel, bringing police, firetrucks and even media cameras to the front of the hotel - yet the rear of the hotel, facing a beach, is inexplicably deserted and unwatched - allowing the terrorists to escape.
Jon Smith, the protagonist and key counter-terrorism operative in this series, makes one horrendous decision after another. His ineptness is matched by the Covert-One group (America's ultra-secret, counter-terrorism experts - which employs Smith) which decides that maintaining its secret existence justifies taking no action to stop the terrorist plan to wipe out New York City.
If you enjoy muttering, "Aw, you gotta be kidding me," this is the novel for you.
