(I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)

For decades, the top-secret Red Cell Seven unit has operated beyond the reach of the law—defending the United States by any means necessary, with absolute impunity. But the tables have turned, and the untouchable anti-terror squad is under attack. Determined to end Red Cell Seven’s ruthless, lawless existence, the US president has tapped military assassin extraordinaire Skylar McCoy to lead a covert search and destroy mission. But McCoy isn’t the only one gunning for Red Cell Seven. A vengeful drug lord has dispatched his own hired killers to eliminate the elite commandos as the first step in the ultimate terrorist plot: exterminating the highest echelons of American government. Caught in the middle, the agents of RC7 must fight their dirtiest, most devastating battle—and dare to decide who will be saved or sacrificed for the greater good.

*3.5 stars*

This is the third book in the Red Cell Trilogy.

I haven't read the other two books in this series. I think it may well have been a good idea to, but this was on offer so I grabbed it to see what it was like.

And it was pretty good. There was certainly enough intrigue and action to keep most thriller fans happy, like myself, and the characters - especially Jack - were well-written and quite enjoyable. The plot itself was something that really drew me in and had me along for the ride.

For me, the downside was the actual story-telling. At times, it felt either rushed or forced. Almost like the author had a word count in his head and didn't want to exceed it, so things were rushed instead of being let to develop further.

Will I go back and read the others? Of course, maybe they will give answers to other questions in my head...or maybe they will just be good books...
