Hard Road (Jon Reznick #1) Reviews
So, Jon Reznick worked for the government as an assassin and, boy, he was a cold blooded killer. He usually went to other countries but this time he was assigned to kill an American. Which he was going to do until something didn’t feel right and he took off with his assignment until he could figure out what was going to do. He didn’t mind killing really evil men but he wasn’t feeling that from Luntz.
This story was exciting from beginning to end and I will definitely read more of the Jon Reznick ...more
In J. B. Turner's first in the Jon Reznick series, Hard Road (Thomas & Mercer 2016), JonReznick is sent to eliminate a man who threatens United States security, but it quickly becomes obvious he not only has the wrong man but the op itself is compromised. The man (known as Luntz) has an FBI protection detail who is murdered by someone who wants to kidnap the scientist. Reznick saves the man's life and they flee to safety where Reznick can figure out what's going on. But things go from bad to ...more
Hard Road is a fast paced terrorist themed thriller. The characters are well written as is the writing for the story. The major drawback for me is the story is all to familiar. Sort of reminded me of parts of the TV show 24.
A couple subplots at work that keep this book a real page turner. There is a imminent terrorist attack that is going to occur and the authorities are two steps behind the bad guys in figuring out what/where the target(s?) are going to be. The ending is really well w ...more
Firstly I would like to thank Net Galley, the publishers and the author for copies of all three Jon Reznick books and my apologies for the delay.
Secondly I would quite happily have paid for this book, the first in the series of the Jon Reznick books. A fast paced action packed thriller.

I would rate this series starter at 3.5 out of 5. The plot is thrilling and the story moves at a fast clip, though the latter part drags a bit and the end is a bit of a letdown. The lead characters are interesting. There are several implausible moments / sequences in this novel, more than in other action thrillers I've read recently. Also, there is not much explanation about how the bad guys know certain things, and not much justification for their actions. Hard Road is a decent read, and I hope ...more
This is another series where I've bought the first few before starting any, on the suspicion that it will be my sort of book, based on the reviews, so I will want to read the rest and so might as well get them while they're cheap. While this was not all that original (ex-Special Forces hunk with a tragic past and a vulnerable daughter, who contracts as an assassin for a secret government agency, finds himself on the run,not knowing who he can trust, after a hit goes wrong and the body count moun ...more
I purchased this as an audiobook and am a bit disappointed with it. Neither the writing nor the narration were my cup of tea. I found the language a bit terse and the cussing seemed arbitrary and forced at times. I cannot tell if it is due to how the book was written or how it was interpreted by the narrator. I found my mind wandering during the narration and frequently checking how much time had passed. Since this was the first book in a series, I assume and hope the remaining books were better ...more
