I enjoyed this book because I appreciate stories of military action and excellence. Levon Cade sets out to find the daughter of his employer but he runs into lots of people who don’t appreciate his search. With his skills, they are no match for Cade and, in the end, he takes the lives of several very bad guys. The good guy wins and the bad guys lose, which is pretty much guaranteed to win a four star review from me. The author avoided most of the pitfalls authors fall into: The proofreading was good, there was no gratuitous sex or romance, the writing was better than average.
Someone commented that the author is trying to make Cade into a pseudo-Jack Reacher. Jack Reacher has no purpose or roots and no need for any. Cade took a job and he did it to the best of his ability. He has a daughter whom he loves and is trying to make a home for her. There are other disparities, but I’m getting into spoiler territory. Suffice it to say, I see very little overlap in the two. I actually like Cade more than Reacher. Cade is a more sympathetic character.
