Not Your Ordinary Action Book
This is the third book about a man by the name of Joe Hunter, and no author in the world has ever named their character better. A former Special Ops agent with the CIA, Joe lives his life as a hunter, a troubleshooter with the accent on “shooter.” However when this book begins, Joe is taking a well-deserved vacation. The hunter is finally relaxing, taking some time out on his rented deck with a beer in one hand and happiness in his heart.
But like everything in Joe’s life, his quiet time comes to an end when he looks up and sees a young woman approaching him from the beach. She's the sister of a former colleague from the CIA who saved Joe’s life. Kate is worried about her sister, Imogen, who is missing and may already be dead.
Joe feels duty bound to help and soon finds himself far from his vacation standing at the door of Imogen’s house, only to find it occupied by a couple of seriously bad individuals who are trashing everything inside. (Readers, this is the first action-packed gun battle with plenty more to come.)
Little by little the plot is revealed and Joe, with the help of Kate and two buddies, go after the bad guys. As the bodies start piling up, they think that they've solved the case, however, as with all the Joe Hunter novels, just when you imagine that the story is over, there is one more tough situation to handle.
This is not your ordinary action book. In fact, it would not come as a surprise to see Joe Hunter up on the big screen one day. Joe and his friends can really put things right, so to speak, but are sincerely likable in the process. The bad guys are well written and certainly deserve every single thing that’s coming to them, and the author is very adamant about showing the sincere loyalty that exists between Joe and his friends. The only downside is that the Joe Hunter books go by so fast that it takes too long to receive the next one.
