The Rescue - story is what it says in the title. The story starts with a mission to rescue twins kidnapped in the beginning by a secret spy , and fastly escalates into the rescue of others too and also world in general as it also involves a chip that could change the face of warfare and ultimately the rescue of one's almost forgotten emotions and soul.
The story is fast paced , never a slow moment something or other goes on happening and the story transforms from a simple rescue mission to a

Coming into this book, I did not have a clue what a ghost assassin was and to be honest, assassin is never thought of it a positive light. However, once I started, not only do you root for Benning but respect him for sacrificing so much in the race to save humanity and finally getting his happily ever after or as close to it considering the situation.

Note: I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review

I’m never sure where to start when I review novels. I love reading, and I enjoy providing feedback. It’s a struggle though because I know the feedback won’t always be five stars, but I believe the stories and the authors deserve honest feedback.
There is a lot of work that goes into the writing of a book. If the novel is sixty thousand words, you can almost guarantee that the author really wrote over a hundred thousand in the process. After the writing is done, the editing must begin. There’s a

I was given a copy of this book courtesy of Booktasters and John J. Higgins for an honest review. The Rescue A Ghost Assassin Affair is an intense, action-packed, nailbiter from the first chapter to the final chapter. We begin with Chet Benning, an agent haunted by the death of his first love, on a mission to rescue twins kidnapped in a plot to obtain a chip that would militarize robots to be efficient killing machines in warfare. The plot takes you from Poland to New York as Sophia, the ex-wife ...more

I have to say that during the time I was reading this book, there were many moments I just had to see where the story was going, I couldn’t put it down. The world of the Assassins is filled with action and the story of both the main character and the mission he is on is intriguing.

Benning is an orphan and had lost the only person he ever cared about. He joined the Assassins at a young age and his past has characteristics that people can easily sympathize with. He seems cold at the beginning,

The opening sentence hooked me right in. I love it when a foreign language is incorporated in a story because that's usually an indication that extensive research was done and the fact that the author used as practically dead a language as Latin is just downright impressive.

The story jumps right into the rescue mission without much a background as to its context whatsoever but every minute detail was perfectly executed so there was never a dull moment. Despite the fast pacing, there were flashes

This book is brilliant! I have to say it was an attention-grabbing and compelling read, I was not disappointed. It is well-written with multifaceted characters, and a plot that keeps you constantly guessing what is going to happen next. I actually did not have a clue what a ghost assassin was all about to be honest, nonetheless, once I started I was fascinated, I could not put the book down because there was never a dull moment and I also wanted to see how the story will unfold. I would totally ...more

This is my first time reading a book by Mr Higgins,I must say I wasn't disappointed. I'm an action junky.From the first page,it keeps you glued.I love how everything comes together and then when you start to think,all is well....Something else happens that is different from the way things had 'seemed to be unfolding'.

The Rescue: A Ghost Assassin Affair is a well-written, hard-to-put-down book with complex characters, and a plot that keeps you constantly guessing what's going to happen. The main character takes a risk going against instructions from his faceless mentor. Going with his instinct, he uncovers far more than he originally anticipated in his search for answers.

The story has so much twist and turns which make me more interested in reading. The writing is easy to read and suitable for matured adults. This book is excellent.
