Shelves: 2fiction, action, 1paper
Take two highly trained black ops guys who quit working for the government & go their own way. They're passionate, but highly disciplined men who seem almost identical, yet they take different paths. One becomes guilt-laden & pretty much retires from the world. The other sells his skills to the highest bidder. Put them on a collision course & watch the action unfold. A fun, exciting read.

Kind of a "Bourne Identity" Ludlum story line. Super spies created by various governments duke it out. A good read, but not amazing.

Mindless, suspenseful,implausible beach reading. Manchurian Candidate meets Bourne Identity meets Tomb Raider. Sometimes believable, other times fanciful almost, but hey's it's a story.

The title comes from the definition of a 4-phase man - one trained in intelligence gathering, counter-intelligence, technological warfare, and assassination.

It was an ok story. Typical bad guy/good guy/tortured spy story. Wasn't quite as gripping as I had hoped after reading Steinberg's book 'The Gemini Man'.
