Special Ops Mystery Thriller

A week ago I needed something to quit thinking of my sorry ass so I raided Grandma Peggy’s private book stash. She specializes in the murder mystery genre. and brags about being able to catch the killer by the second chapter.

The book I pulled out of the stack is Vertical Run by Joseph R. Garber.

I never heard of this book or of Joseph Garber. All I cared about is that the author be a man. Peggy reads many woman authors. I don’t have anything about women author’s I just need a high testosterone blood and guts story.

I won’t discuss the plot because it is loaded with mystery after mystery, and any explanation would begin to dull the story for a reader.

The story centers on a Viet Nam veteran who trained in Special Operations; in other words he is a professional killer. He is an executive in a large business and has been leading several companies. He has his own office with a shower and dressing room.

The main character jogs to the office daily and uses his office perk to clean up and dress. The day before, his boss, the owner of the firm, gave him a new acquisition to handle.

The action and mystery begins in the first sentence and continues to the end.  One has to read the prologue and beyond to get the whole story.

Grandma Peggy isn’t going to figure this one out before the last sentence.

As for me, I picked a testosterone filled story with lots of violence and revealing insights into special operations training. Our government asks a lot from our soldiers, and it leaves them with life-long issues they are sometimes unable to overcome.
