Hard Road (Jon Reznick #1) Reviews
Hard Road was an exciting and fast-paced read with an interesting plot and I really enjoyed it.
As far as the American government is concerned, Jon Reznick does not exist. His orders come in by phone and he carries out off book assignments with no hesitation. When Reznick is given his next target and told to make it look like a suicide, he immediately sets out to complete a task he’s done dozens of times before. However this time, something is wrong. The information he was given does not ...more
I have to start by saying that this feels like a Tom Clancy Op Center story. Not a copy, and the organizations and plots are very different. What I mean is that J.B. Turner builds the tension in a way that you really do feel like the world is under threat. This book gave me that feeling, you know the one, the one where you just know that this is going to be a long series of books that needs to be purchased. This is story is based more around the FBI than a shadowy grey ops agency but the additio ...more
Firstly I would like to thank Net Galley, the publishers and the author for copies of all three Jon Reznick books and my apologies for the delay.
Secondly I would quite happily have paid for this book, the first in the series of the Jon Reznick books. A fast paced action packed thriller.

A good light read
Want somebody to read that's enjoyable, while in a mellow mood, this one fits the bill. Not one that is over whelming.
Hard Road is a fast paced terrorist themed thriller. The characters are well written as is the writing for the story. The major drawback for me is the story is all to familiar. Sort of reminded me of parts of the TV show 24.
A couple subplots at work that keep this book a real page turner. There is a imminent terrorist attack that is going to occur and the authorities are two steps behind the bad guys in figuring out what/where the target(s?) are going to be. The ending is really well w ...more
I would say this is one of the top thrillers J. B. Turner's first in the Jon Reznick series I totally agree with
Jacqui Review I have all is book on my Tablet our ready to read
Mmmm, I have to say when I read the reviews previous to reading the book I was a little unsure. I don't normally read the reviews but for some reason n this case I did and the feeling seems very mixed. I decided to get on with it and found myself straight in from chapter one, swept away with the characters and story line. Jon Reznick is not a good guy, nor is he a bad guy! He's ex Delta Forces and has been given a job by his handler. When Reznick turns up to carry out the high level hit, somethi ...more
