This is the second introductory novella to the Bonafide family saga. This is leading up to the first full novel to be released this summer. If the future novels featuring this unique and interesting family are as compelling as these first two, I am in a state of quivering anticipation. Jack and Mac Bonafide are newly minted operatives of the CIA tasked with locating bits and pieces of a Soviet H-bomb supposedly located in various places all over the USA. Along the way there is plenty of action a ...more

Jack Bonafide is on another mission - of a different kind.

Leaving Delta for CIA NOC work was starting to look like a fruitful and good choice - until they were faced with some other conditions that were less than ideal.

So they safety of the world lies once again in the hands of some football playing, red necked southern boys.

hoo-yah!

an edge of your seat pre-quel to what promises to be more Bonafide adventures!

Kick butt adventure complete with ouch did not see that coming!

Beginning a new series

Direct Action by Jordan Vezina is the prelude to a high intensity race to find a Russian super bomb hidden in th USA. Jack Bonafide is the protagonist of this new series that includes his brother and a female auditor who will use their skills to track the Bob's location. The backstory and action in this novella has emerged my appetite for the Black Tsar, so now I'm waiting impatiently for the next book.

This is a wonderful intro to a new series. It’s a short read but a brilliantly crafted story that introduces the new series perfectly. This author has become one of my favorites when it comes to this genre, I have yet to read a book by him that I didn’t enjoy! Can’t wait for the next book and for this series to develop.

Having read several of Jordan Vezina's other books (love the Jericho Black series) I decided to give this new series a go. In Direct Action and with Jack Bonafide it appears that Jordan has really hit his stride. I found this book to be somewhat better than even the Jericho Black series, at least for my tastes. I really enjoy the new character, Jack, and am looking forward to future stories.

This one explores another member of the Bonafide family who were featured prominently in Broken English and a previous Jericho novel. High stakes action, espionage with Russians, and a nuclear threat. What more can you want?

More branches in the Jericho Black series, this is one awesome ride. This unique series has hooked me way back in among wolves and I cannot put these books down - this one as well. It is a short read, but I want to read more.

The dynasty building reminds me of Wilbur Smith one of my favorite authors. The characters are well developed and mesh together well.
