Characters Measure of Danger.
O get the idea but never spilling the beans I really njoyed this great read Just finished Measure of Danger and a pretty intense read it was and brilliant In Kade Sims Jay Kages has created a convincing realistic hero with a strong thical streak and real self doubts and fears He s Going Berserk educated smart and a good guy but his life is not looking good after an honorable discharge from the army where he worked as in intelligence analyst respected and successful but having problems and getting into trouble off duty due to his hypermania disorder The latter brings him to the attention of the FBI looking for an someone to take part in an operation concerning national security he needs to infiltrate The Chapter anvolving militia movement and perceived potential threat and find out what s being planned The story unravels fast paced but detailed so there s no skimming or you miss something important New developments unfold unexpected and rich in detail which kept me glued The Chapter it s set up and it s leadership in particular Marshall Owens are also fully developed so the novel isn t only Kade s story but we learn about Owens and his background too impressively done and again the familiar level of detail works for meWhen I read that this book was a techno thriller I wasn t clear what that meant
It Could Have Meantcould have meant of technology computer speak gadgets and the like which doesn t really do it for me I want to understand the characters and what makes them tick But it s not about gadgets and the technology is scarily relevant to the plot and characters themselves and how Owens controls those under his command Excellent and originalJay Klages has a great future as an author if this is what he s capable of and we ll be seeing Kade Sims again very soon I hope This was a well written spionage book I m guessing in the style of Jack Reacher series I don t read much govt spionage This book had a lot of action going on and some amazing situations so for those reasons I recommend itPersonally there were many many characters to try to figure out all of them were last name only Plus there were so many agencies involved vil corporation FBI DEA cartels Government officials congress and above So you decide if this book is for youI love a good suspense thriller but this one was a lot of work to get through Although I did finish it had to find out it all nded You re not in Danger of being bored with this book badwordplayThrillers can sometimes be a mixed bag Sometimes they can have a great opening and get you sucked in but lose the plot in the middle only to pull Autobiography and Other Writings everything back together at thend for a serviceable nding Probably because as a writer the first things you figure out are the begining and nd and spend the rest of the time creating the road between the twoI m happy to say this is not one of those booksWhen The FBI realizes that The Chapter think Illuminati but real in this world has infiltrated the Unbeatable Mind (3rd Edition): Forge Resiliency and Mental Toughness to Succeed at an Elite Level (English Edition) eBook: Mark Divine: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EU S.à r.l. entire government theynlist the only person that is capable of handling the job Kade Sims a former Army intelligence operative that was kicked out for out of control behavior who is now working at Home Depot I m sure you re thinking Wait they should get LITERALLY ANYONE ELSE to do this Well that s why you re not the FBI Boss because he immediately gets captured by The Chapter and brought in much further than anyone wanted WaitThis is a very well paced thriller that #is just as xhilirating in chapter 1 38 and 77 And yes I looked up how many chapters this #just as xhilirating in chapter 1 38 and 77 And yes I looked up how many chapters this had and it took me way too long to figure out the middle chapter There were a lot of comparisons in the other reviews to Jack Ryan and that is a fairly apt comparison Apocalyptic Cartography: Thematic Maps and the End of the World in a Fifteenth-Century Manuscript except that Kade is a little bit of a screw up But it totally works in this book and I reallynjoyed it. EX is invested in far threatening pursuits the company is secretly funding The Chapter a high tech militia plotting a savage attack on the United StatesCan Kade stop The Chapter before it’s too late And now that he’s on the inside will he ver scape their shadowy network.
