Radical environmentalist, a crooked mine boss, a white superamcy group, and a ex-Speciali Ops soldier. This book seems to have it all.
The book started slow and took a couple of chapters to warm up. Once it did though it was soldier action to the end.
Mike Herne, call sign Orion, is asked by his old boss, Alpha, to look for a girl. A girl who was part of the protests at the Hobart mine.
What seems a simple job, becomes a deadly adventure as one group after another sets out to kill Mike.
This is the second in the series of Mike Herne stories, although it works well as a standalone book. Written in the same style as the Jason Borne books, it draws you I with the action, and cliff hanger chapter endings.
For an action book the characters develop rather well, particularly the lead Mike, and his new found FBI buddy Agent Nichols, who plays the potential love interest in the book.
This is a great read, and I can’t wait for the next.
