Guess who’s back on the block! Author J.B. Turner returns with his iconic character, Jon Reznick in book #8 HARD TARGET. If you love a good page-turner then look no further. Turner writes the tightest thrillers in the 250-275 page weight class. You always know upfront what Reznick wants. And, he ALWAYS gets what he wants. Once his will is set in motion, he’s hellbent on carrying out the mission despite all costs to him personally or professionally. He’s one of those characters you love to hate. To say that he is motivated is a serious understatement. Ex-NSA hacker Trevelle Williams usually is the one helping Reznick with the touch cases. But now, Trevelle is the one seeking help when he comes across top secrets documents linked to the Pentagon. This is an explosive thriller tighter than a drum. Right now as of today, 5/21, Hard Target is #1 on Amazon for Assassination Thrillers. Go get it!
A threat inside the government. A whistleblower’s life on the line. It’s up to Jon Reznick to bring justice.
When hacker Trevelle Williams discovers documents that threaten national security and put his life in jeopardy, there’s only one person he can turn to—Jon Reznick. Williams has learned that Rosalind Dyer, a key congressional witness, is about to be killed in order to stop her testimony. She has stumbled into the middle of a cover-up that goes deep into the United States government. Dyer knows her days are numbered, but that won’t stop her from doing what she has to do.
Trevelle Williams has helped Jon out of many a scrape in the past. Now, Jon is the only person he can turn to for help saving Rosalind’s life, as well as his own, and protecting national security in the process.
With enemies on all sides, including within the United States government, can Jon and Trevelle get to Rosalind in time? They’re her only hope to escape her pursuers and bring these secrets to light.
If you really want to go deeper into this series with Jon Reznick, I highly recommend the audiobooks narrated by Jeffrey Kafer. Hard Target is the 8th book of the series and I always go the audio route. You won’t miss a beat! Sometimes you get the sense that Reznick is a jackass with a stick up his rump, but that’s just who he is. As an ex-special ops operative he’s pretty hardened and doesn’t take any BS. But deep down it’s evident that he has a passion to help others and do what is right. Even when the odds are stacked against him.
