About this deal
Hello again Mr Jordan. You probably know that I got Ghost Target for my smartphone on Android Google Play Books. I read it and finished it. My verdict? I loved the book. Unoriginal characters: russian scientist. US-ex-military-hero. US-ex-militar- presumed-dead-turned-mercenary villain. Tough yet fragile female doctor. Unfiendly yet helpful ally. Give me a break.

Living in Fife he has a strong interest in military history and modern warfare techniques, something which is clearly reflected through the accuracy displayed in his stories. The book is more original that its title at least, though. Do you know how many books share that title? So many.
The dialogue deserves a second mention, as it is really bad. The whole
Following his trail of destruction, the team must fight to save Drake not only from a list of ruthless enemies, but even more urgently, from himself.Ryan Drake, once a decorated field operative, is now wanted for treason. On the run from the CIA’s corrupt Deputy Director Marcus Cain, he has spent the past six months in a remote French safe house. Drake’s former life seems to be behind him, but the uneasy peace is shattered when Cain moves against him with startling force. No, we don't get dudes mowing down hordes of the undead, but what action here is clinical and well thought out. One section had me almost thinking this was going to turn all Resident Evil.
