Simple and fun read. Good pulp fiction.

I wanted to like this book more, but the cliches were painful. I was pretty much done with it when he described the floating bed - are you joking? That kind of magnets for a bed? And no electronics were affected?? So, go watch a James Bond or other dudebro thriller - you haven't missed a thing

This is definitely a “guys book.” Well written, and the plot moves along at a rapid pace. However, Hurwitz describes guns and knives and details fight scenes to the degree that I found myself just skimming those sections. With that in mind, I won’t read future installments in the series.

Created for the screen action character. From Kim to the present we have a fascination with the molding of a child into a secret agent. I'm sure it has been done ala Red Sparrow and the Bourne type characters. Now we have another who works for himself with apparently unlimited funds for good-told you there was a movie there-who can resist?

I guess the author's agent told him to create a series character. You know, like that Jack Reacher guy. This is the feeble result. Comic book characters and far-fetched story.

I wish my assassin dad was a walking cliche. Beethoven CDs are so good for children studying--even those studying weaponry dismantlement! I would be so cultured if my assassin dad cared for me like that, making me read Homer and Shakespeare in between Mace training. If you tried to fit one more cliche into this book, the spine would break. Go watch a James Bond movie instead.

I had to persevere due to the amount of uninteresting and superfluous detail. Mid-way through. it became truly interesting.

Never heard of the TV show but I gave the book an average rating. The ending was too predictable!
