A good read and quite well written. Possibly a bit too much of the writre's pat subject: surfing!
Short review: Read it!
This stand-alone is not as easy to follow as other works due to formatting issues. No graphic violence or drag-you-down drama.
Intriguing, well researched storyline. Descriptive writing that draws the reader into each character and their beliefs. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. The characters are conceivable with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking and memorable dialogue.
'He had no interest in the civilian job market, which he thought of a rat race where everyone guarded their salaries like a maiden’s virginity while they stabbed co-workers in the back and pouted like children over their status in The Company.'
'The sea was more than a cruel mistress --it was more like a very nasty ex-wife. If you failed to placate and respect her, she would hurt you. Or kill you.'
Every agent knew that, and it put a tremendous amount of pressure on anyone who ever had to go through a door. Nobody wanted to be the one who backed out of going first. That was a sign of weakness, and it was unprofessional. You never asked your partner to do something you were not willing to do yourself. Not to mention the fact that if you decided to convince your partner to go first, you’re a real chickensh@@ if he took one in the chest. But then again, who the hel@ wants to go first and get shot?
"Molly,” he said slowly, “when I was in the Marine Corps, I was trained to kill terrorists. Not deal with them. Not reason with them or negotiate with them. Not even treat them like human f'n beings. Just kill them. Remove them. Eliminate them. That’s the only way to stop them.”
I will re-read this story and look forward to other works by this author. To paraphrase another reviewer. "The man can write!"
