Killer Lawyer is the latest addition to the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. It is an incredibly clever, intense, gripping and suspenseful read. This has a complex, multi-layered storyline- with lots of action, drama, intrigue, humour, danger, tension, and mystery. We once again team up with former marine Jake Wolfe and follow his lead, as all the excitement unfolds. Jake has earned his law degree, and has also been recruited to undertake dangerous, covert assignments on behalf of the government. His constant companion- trusty, highly intelligent, and loyal ex-war dog, Cody, live on a motor yacht own by a wealthy friend. When a deranged killer starts killing random targets on the streets on San Francisco, Jake and Cody are determined to hunt him down and eliminate the threat. But what happens when the killer decides to target Jake, Cody and all the people they love most in the world? This book really is worth the read to find out all the exciting details for yourself. It is a fast paced story with lots of twists and surprising developments. This is such an absorbing read, I ended up reading it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down, I really need to know how the whole story played out! The story is told from multiple POV’s ( even Cody the dog gets a say), which gives a well-rounded perspective of the developments, and adds an extra dynamic to the whole story. The characters are so great- they are completely developed, fully realised characters with their own quirks, flaws and unique personalities. I especially loved how incredibly detailed and developed Cody’s (the dog) personality was- it’s this attention to detail that really sets this book apart from others in the same genre! The next book can’t come soon enough for me!
Another memorable story in this fabulous series. Mark Nolan certainly knows how to write an exciting and tense Action Thriller. I quite enjoy a plot that I can’t guess what’s going to happen, and there are a couple of Wow moments in this story that I wasn’t expecting. This is the third book in the series and I’ve loved each one of them. Jack Wolfe is a great character. Jake Wolfe may have become a qualified lawyer, but he didn’t seem to have it in him yet to settle down into a normal lifestyle. It didn’t help that he kept getting dragged into missions where he put his life on the line. Hence, he was also having trouble with his love life. When a random killer gets a bit close to home, Jake once again can’t help but throw his hat into the ring and join the investigation. Jake is lucky to have his war dog Cody to watch his back, and unlike his girlfriend Sarah, Cody doesn’t mind Jake going after the bad guys and putting himself in danger. Mind you, no one could blame Sarah after her life was previously put in jeopardy for being close to Jake. With such a disturbed killer on the streets no one will be safe until he’s either caught or killed. The Author has done a great job in creating this special book, and I would certainly recommend it. 5/5 Star Rating.
Killer Lawyer (Jake Wolfe Book 3) by Mark Nolan is a very complex and very cleverly written gripping and suspenseful tale and the next in this wonderful series. This story is told in multiple POV’s which gives us more of an insight to the characters and a multi layered dimension. The story is action packed and fast paced with the usual twist and turns that lead you astray. The story is intense and will have your heart racing one minute and have you laughing the next. The danger and the intrigue, the mystery and drama will have the pages falling one after the other as you race towards the finish line.
Jake Wolfe is a former marine, a lawyer, covert operative and a nice guy who always rubs people the wrong way without even trying but if you are ever in a bind him and his buddy, ex war dog, Cody are the ones you want covering your back. The race is on to stop a serial killer whose kills have no rhyme or reason. If not stopped no one is safe. Marks plots are complex yet simplistic in their threads in the web he has cleverly woven together. I am very much looking forward to the next book.
