I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into the latest installment of the Jake Wolfe series. At the beginning of the story Jake is on a fishing trip, taking a much-needed break. However, the criminals didn’t get the memo and once again Jake’s R&R will end before it even started. This latest mission would prove to be the deadliest of all as he faces down a group, called The Society, intent on world domination. To achieve their goal, they aim to weaponize the 1918 influenza virus, after which they plan ...more

I am not exaggerating when I say that words cannot describe how excited I was to read another Jake Wolfe book. I am not even sure who I like more – Jake or Cody. They make the most intoxicating team of hotness and stealth and mystery and intelligence and just… I think they could be my dream duo!

But alas, the Jake Wolfe series is only a tiny bit romantic. It is mainly suspense and action and thrill and edge of your seat, nail biting, page turning, HAVE TO HAVE!

‘Deadly Weapon’ is the new book from Mark Nolan and is the fifth book in the Jake Wolfe series. If you love action-packed suspense novels, then this is a book for you.

Jake Wolfe is enjoying some much needed downtime in Alaska, Salmon fishing with his friend Tuktu, and his trusty sidekick Cody the Golden Retriever Support dog. But if Jake thought he’d be allowed to enjoy some peace, he is sorely mistaken, for it isn’t long before a Helicopter and a message from Washington D.C interrupts, cutting

I have read one of Nolan's books before, San Diego Dead, but I definitely agree that you do not have to have read any others in order to pick up this book. When I read that one, I said that I wanted to check out more books in the series, and I regret that I haven't picked up any of the others until this one!

I still have to say that Cody, the dog, is my favorite character, which is not to take away from the human characters. I just think that he is so lovable.

If you have never read any of Mark Nolan's Jake Woods series you have no idea what you are missing! My favorite character is Cody, a war dog who is Jake's constant companion. Both Jake and Cody have PTSD and have retired from the Marines. This is one smart dog and a big pussy cat unless he is told to attack or happens not to like you!!!

Jake and Cody do undercover work for a secret government organization who use them as killing machines. The action starts on the first page and never stops!! A de

Jake and Cody are out to save the world yet again! Jake Wolf is a former Marine who has been working secretly for the government for quite some time. His dog Cody is a former war dog who hasn't completely adjusted to being a civilian, and he works alongside Jake on his missions.

This particular situation hits a little close to home, especially in the middle of a global pandemic. Jake is sent to Alaska to stop an evil group from releasing an old pathogen into the world and killing millions.

Jake and Cody are at it again. While on vacation in Alaska, Jake gets new orders to head to Hawaii to stop a group from retrieving and using a new bioweapon. And as usual, Jake follows orders without question. This will not be an easy job, but that has never stopped him before. Jake will have to use every skill he knows, and it will be extra hard on Cody this time. But like Jake, Cody has never backed down either.

Another great story from Mr. Nolan. I love following the adventures of Jake and Cod

Deadly Weapon is the perfect fall thriller. I have to admit, part of the reason I love the Jake Wolfe thrillers is his faithful sidekick, Cody. There's never a dull moment, and Jake and Cody are in a race against the clock to save the world. If you're looking for something that will get your heart racing (and doesn't involve a cardio class at the gym), then you'll want to grab this latest installment in the series. ...more

I just love the duo of Jake and Cody (ex-Marines)—especially Cody—these two are beyond engaging. Intelligent, fast, cunning, capable, but tender and hot at the same time! There is something overwhelming in the attraction of Jake—perhaps that “animal magnetism.” (snicker, snicker)

In this series entry, Jake’s Alaskan holiday is interrupted by a call to action not wholly successful…it will continue back home in the Bay Area. “He felt the need for some vitamin sea.”
Anyway, it’s a nasty consortium of

I don’t think there is anything I can say here about the Jake Wolfe series that anyone hasn’t already said. We all realize the greatness of this series. This new book does not let us down. It may have more action in it. Constructing action in words to help the reader “see” is not an easy thing, but the author has accomplished it.

If you read my reviews from his previous books you’ll find I fell in love with Nolan’s creation of his character, Jake Wolfe, from the beginning. He has created a chara

Deadly Weapon is the fifth action-packed adventure in Mark Nolan’s Jake Wolfe series. Jake is a former marine who can’t seem to sit still (or in this case, fish in peace) without getting roped into some top secret, high stakes mission. His service dog, Cody, is also a former marine and his training makes him an indispensable part of the team.
The plot of Deadly Weapon centres around a biological weapon involving a deadly and highly contagious virus. So if you’re looking for a book that will take

With ghosts you call ghostbusters.

Deadly Weapon by Mark Nolan is the fifth book in the Jake Wolfe series. This book can be read as a standalone although I would recommend reading it in order as it follows the same character throughout and I feel you would miss of a lot of the previous development.

Another great story featuring Jake Wolfe and his war dog Cody. This one is non-stop action. If Jake isn’t taking down a plane he is running from a drone shooting at him. He is one guy that would be great to know but yet he wouldn’t because he always brings his work home. l need to say that I love his attitude. He has confidence in getting the job done anyway and anyhow which leads to his cockiness. Cody is just as animated as always. I love when we get chapters or snippets of a story from his PO ...more
