The Killing Season by Mason Cross
I actually read this series in order, picking up the first in the series (o.k. I admit it, it was by accident!). I don’t know why I liked this book, I just did. It felt like each separate chapter was complete in of itself. sort of a series of short stories and yet still a complete novel. It was a great plot with the odd twist to really keep the reader interest. However, the plot is not unique. Many novels feature a trained sniper who turns criminal and likes creating fear in the general public. Leading the charge to capture and/or stop him is a “shadow”operative independent but attached to the good side. It is the side stories and well written characters elevate the generic plot .
Keep it and reap it ratings. I want to read another Cross book and see if the enjoyment lasts. I am so pleased that this is the first in a series about Carter Blake and being written from his perspective. I will be hunting down the next one, The Samaritan. That is if I don’t break and buy it as an ebook. The number of books waiting for me to read is getting a little ridiculous!!
