Red Right Hand by Chris Holm

NOMINATED FOR THE 2017 ANTHONY AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL
If the good guys can't save you, call a bad guy.
When viral video of an explosive terrorist attack on San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge reveals that a Federal witness long thought dead is still alive, the organization he'd agreed to testify against will stop at nothing to put him in the ground.
FBI Special Agent Charlie Thompson is determined to protect him, but her hands are tied; the FBI's sole priority is catching the terrorists before they strike again. So Charlie calls the only person on the planet who can keep her witness safe: Michael Hendricks.
Once a covert operative for the US military, Hendricks makes his living hitting hitmen... or he did, until the very organization hunting Charlie's witness--the Council--caught wind and targeted the people he loves. Teaming up with a young but determined tech whiz, Cameron, on the condition she leave him alone after the case, Hendricks reluctantly takes the job.
Of course, finding a man desperate to stay hidden is challenging enough without deadly competition, let alone when the competition's shadowy corporate backer is tangled in the terrorist conspiracy playing out around them. And now Hendricks is determined to take the Council down, even if that means wading into the center of a terror plot whose perpetrators are not what they seem.

Seven years ago, Frank Segreti was a mob informant. He went to the FBI about an organization called The Counsel. Shortly thereafter he finds himself dead. Zip to present day and a family that it taking a photo at the Golden Gate Bridge when a tug boat full of explosives goes off. On review of the file, FBI agent Charlie Thompson is surprised to see Frank. But she can’t really investigate his appearance so she called in Michael Hendricks. Michael is still smarting after his last run around with The Counsel and has no problem fighting The Counsel. This is a great, action filled story. Michael is not just the killer of killers. He will kill for an exorbitant amount of money. And after his last tangle with The Counsel, he has them in his sights. Michael teams up with Cameron to keep ahead of the FBI and mob bosses to get Frank Segreti. But The Counsel expects Michael and he is going to have a harder time fighting them this time around. This is an action filled great story. It’s a great thriller that will have you cheering for Michael. I liked Cameron. She adds a bit of a fresh approach to the story and I hope she is around for the last book. If you like action packed thrillers you need to check this series out. I received Red Right Hand from the publisher for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

Maybe the best aspect of this book was the setting. It starts with a boat crash into a Golden Gate Bridge tower, and ends with a great scene on a BART train beneath the Bay. Great description of a good piece of The City in between. Ooo I didn't give it 5 stars because I thought it was too complicated and confusing. But still, worth the time Generally a good read.

A FAST JUST-OK READ! Not the best crime-fiction book I’ve ever read, but not the worst, by a long-shot. Combining aspects of terrorism and organized crime, and the fast-becoming-trite independent security group not on the up and up, as well as yet another clandestine group pulling a lot of strings, RED RIGHT HAND provided a quick few hours of reading that left me partially filled, if not completely sated. The second book in a “Collector” series, it didn’t leave me inspired to pick up book one or three, but it did make up for an evening of not much of anything to watch on television.

Red Right Hand by Chris Holm breaks new ground in the action/thriller genre. And it is something to behold. Michael Hendricks is a hitman. But with a difference. His mission is to eliminate other contract killers who have run afoul of a governing body called “The Council.” In Red Right Hand Hendricks has been forced to turn on the council. He wants to destroy them and end the council’s reign of criminality. This time, Hendricks is enlisted by the F.B.I. to protect a federal witness who is going to testify against the council. After video surfaces of a terrorist attack in San Francisco revealing the existence of the long thought dead witness, the council decides to take action. The story moves swiftly from location to location, unwinding like a non-stop action movie. Hendricks is assisted by a female tech guru who gives the story a nice added dimension. Red Right Hand is a book that should be savored and thoroughly enjoyed. The author does what all great writers do – he makes you look forward to his next book. Buy this for the weekend upcoming.
