If you like Tom Clancy's hero Jack Ryan, you may enjoy Marcus Wynne's hero -- and I use the term purposely -- Hunter James. Depending on your point of view, Wynne's book suffers, or benefits, from many of the same characterization and plot mechanisms as a Clancy thriller.

The Prologue gave me pause, I have to admit. Assassination performed with the knife is the subject matter. Wynne does a good job of setting an almost out-of-body atmosphere, which makes what happens as much a study in psychology

If you like your thrillers with an extreme dose of reality and violence, this is your book! This one is by far the best book that the author has ever written.

The book is about a hyper-realistic, ultra violent terrorist plot. It was so realistic it scared me a little. It made me think about how, as a cop, I could defeat it. It was sobering to realize that I couldn't. And no one else would be able to stop it either.

The author's real world experience and training shows through, from his excellent

The author has some good ideas and overall the story was well conceived. However there were quite a few grammar errors, poor word choice (and sometimes simply the wrong word) and slack editing. A proofreader would have caught many of these errors which stopped me in my reading tracks. The action scenes were well-written and will leave you breathless. More attention to detail will make this a four-star book.

Hi All! Thanks for reading WITH A VENGEANCE! This was the first novel I published as an e-book only just a year ago; it was the first novel I've pubbed since my last hardbound book in 2003. I was sidelined for 7 years for a variety of reasons, which are covered in the Foreword and Acknowledgements of WAV. Thanks for reading and your great comments!

cheers, m

As fast and riveting as a knife fight...

If you like guns, knives, martial arts, strategy and intrigue, you will like this book. I read this on my flight home and really enjoyed it.

Serious knife fighting scenes, tradecraft, and quite a few twists and turns. Excellent thriller from someone who has been there and done that.
