From Goodreads: Pensacola-born, Vietnam Veteran, Brendan O’Brannigan is a first-class sniper.

And he has a few scores to settle for old times’ sake.

And as he delves into the past, O’Brannigan suddenly finds himself entangled in a whirlwind of tenacious trouble.

But sniper O’Brannigan is no stranger to trouble. He’s seen it all before in the dense, hazardous jungles of the 60s Vietnam.

And if those suckers reckon they’re gonna take him for a ride, they’re in for a shocking surprise. If he’s going down, he’s taking the suckers with him.

Then the real action starts!

Set in Miami, West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Ohio, Detroit, Pensacola and New Orleans, this action-packed US thriller is a killer!

 

This book seems to no longer be available on Amazon, but I said I’d do a review so here it goes. It was incredibly action packed and I can see how this would have some people clinging to the edge of their seats. I don’t know if I was the author’s intended audience though. I’ll admit I was intrigued enough to finish the book and there are a lot of twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. I did have some trouble with the writing though and that may just be my English degree talking. I found a lot of the conversations to be very similar even though they were supposed to be between different characters. The main character lacked the depth that I love so much when I’m reading, but I suppose in this type of story that isn’t what matters. I also felt like there were a lot of jumps in what was happening with very little explanation in between and that’s always something that bothers me. I can see where any fan of this type of action packed novel would have a great time though, so I would recommend it to anyone looking for something fast paced and that isn’t afraid of a little death. 🙂
