Overview

Jet by Russell Blake

Code name: Jet

Twenty-eight-year-old Jet was once the Mossad's most lethal operative before faking her own death and burying that identity forever.

But the past doesn't give up on its secrets easily.

When her new life on a tranquil island is shattered by a brutal attack, Jet must return to a clandestine existence of savagery and deception to save herself and those she loves. A gritty, unflinching roller-coaster of high-stakes twists and shocking turns, JET features a new breed of protagonist that breaks the mold.

Fans of Lisbeth Salander, SALT, and the Bourne trilogy will find themselves carried along at Lamborghini speed to a conclusion as jarring and surprising as the story's heroine is unconventional.

Non-stop action and intelligent adventure: First in a series, Russell Blake’s Jet introduces a cool action heroine, chased by criminals, hiding from her past, with a secret history in the Mossad’s invisible forces. An exciting introduction follows this seemingly innocent shopkeeper as she destroys the hit team sent to kill her and swiftly falls off the radar. Nicely detailed, swiftly told, and immediately enthralling—it’s hard to even think about putting the book down until those first fast scenes are done. Then, with perfect timing, the author introduces backstory, building a mystery behind the tale. Why did Jet leave her Mossad team? And why can’t she stay lost? The author balances answered with unanswered questions to create an enthralling standalone tale, perfectly set up for further novels in the series. Jet’s no one-dimensional heroine, and she’s more than just backstory and plot. By the end of the tale she’s a wounded character chasing hope in the face of betrayal, as skilled with knife and gun as with a computer, and someone you’d definitely want on your side. As to who’s side she’s going to end up on, I guess I’d have to read more novels to find out. In this dark world of political and industrial espionage, good guys are hard to find. I’ve read several of Russell Blake’s novels before this one, and this is definitely my favorite—unputdownable and fun! Disclosure: I was lucky enough to be given a free ecopy of this novel.

This Book Reminds You Why You Enjoy Reading!: I feel like I've found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow with this author. Being a newbie to the Russell Blake world of writing, Jet was a tremendous way to start reading not only the beginning of what will be a Jet series but a beginning to reading his entire collection of books. In Jet, Russell Blake doesn't ease you into the beginning with this book, he starts you off running and you don't stop until the end. I'm not an arms master - couldn't tell you the difference between a Saturday Night Special and a Glock but Russell Blake broke open a world where fire power, spy apparatus, and kill or be-killed moves are an every day occurrence, and delivered it in such a way that I was both fascinated and wide-eyed with the knowledge I gained. Don't forget to dust your passport off because the plot carries you from country to country. From Monaco to Punta Gorda, you get to see both picturesque waterfronts and the sights, sounds and smells of third world countries. Russell Blake plunks you right smack dab in the middle of it all. Blake has made Jet a woman you don't want to mess around with but not to the point where other women would feel threatened by her. She has feelings and depth. This is a woman I would want on my side and her cell phone number to call if I ever needed some intimidation. As far as the plot, the twists are artfully conveyed where you don't know what to expect next. Want to take a quiet walk down the street? Rethink that when you hear the telltale whistle of bullets slicing through the air towards you. Thankfully, at the end of Jet, Russell Blake has given a sneak-peek of Chapter One from what will be the second in this series. This author doesn't know how to let up on the action....and I'm so glad. Well done, Mr. Blake. It is my pleasure to highly recommend this book to lovers of all genres.

A great over the top action story with excellent flow. I found myself attempting figure the whole story for most of the book while still being surprised at the end. An excellent quick read with exciting action.

Good book. Kept your interest. Kept you wondering. Looking forward to more good reads from this author.

Wow!  Fast paced.  Draws you in and won't let go.  Jet, no longer a part of a group that officially does not exist.  Enforcers/assassins for the government (a possibly the highest bidder to the government).  Total black ops.  Jet has lived a new life after she "dies" on assignment.  Now suddenly she is drawn unwillingly back into the life that she was desperate to leave.  Reunited with her ex lover, they try to stay 1 step ahead of the bad guys. While the book was predictable in a lot of places, the action and rekindle of the old life keep the book worth reading.  The ending was the only part I did not like, but the sequels are definitely now going onto my to be read list.

I liked Jet. She's tough, sexy and smart. But almost too many characters and locations to keep straight. Action packed but not sure if I'll read the series. I might come back after reading somethig else.

I loved this book and I don't say that often. There wasn't a dull moment and you never know what will really happen. At times, it can be a lot to keep up with but it's worth it. Very happy I chose this as my first book to read on my nook. Everyone should read it!

The protagonist was a welcome departure from the usual fare and the story well written. Enough detail to hold it all in a nice package without being pedantic.
