Jack Tanner Box Set #1 - This is my first read by this author and I did not care for his writing style.
Standstill - This is a bad Hollywood movie, actually movies. A wannabe Bruce Willis tough cop that misses the goal.
I tried three different times to force myself to read this dribble and I cannot finish this two book set as promised.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
A new super cop has arrived, a hero who gets the job done. A British Jack Reacher, Jason Bourne, Mitch Rapp and the various James Patterson heroes, but a soft side, a human side, a vulnerable side.
A good read, a cracking read, a read in one go read.
Looking forward to more.
You don't find out all the details til the end of the story...but that is how it is supposed to be..right?
Keep the stories coming...I feel they will only get better. ...more

But what Jack lacks in life-experience, he more than makes up for in creative ingenuity. His Jake Tan ...more
