really liked it

It surprises me just a little that I only just discovered David Morrell's books. He writes thrillers, he's been doing so since before I was born, yet I'd never heard of him, let alone realised he was the brains behind the Rambo franchise.... Okay, that latter point is not a huge selling point, unless you like seeing people sawn in half with a machine gun for the final act of a movie (Hint: my answer is yes).

In The Protector we have a protective services operator, Cavanaugh, protecting a client, Prescott, from two groups who want Prescott dead... Guess where the idea for the novel's title came from. Of course there is more to Prescott than it first appears, the groups after him are highly resourced, and the straight forward protection assignment goes sideways. Car chases, gun fights, black helicopters, several fires and a knife fight for good measure: you know, thriller.

This book moves at a cracking pace and was very entertaining. I'm definitely checking out more of David's novels.
