More accurately, I would give it a 3.5. Three is too low and four is too high. It had an amazingly compelling plot, but the characters left much to be desired in terms of personality. The action scenes bore the mark of an expert of violence.

Admittedly, this is Fury's second foray into writing and his first into fiction, and by his own admission, he is not a writer by trade. But he has potential, and if he continues to practice the tips of the trade, I can easily see him ranking with Flynn and Thor in the modern action thriller genre.
