I have to start by saying that that the cover of this book looks really ‘blokey’ I would never have picked it up if I’d seen it on a shelf. However as I bought it through the kindle store I just went by the name and description and I’m glad that for once I wasn’t able to judge a book by its cover.
Closure was really good and definitely not just a mans book, it had a standard FBI thriller feel about it with the added interest of following a sniper with a cause. Anyone who is a fan of thrillers and ‘whodunnits’ should enjoy this book.
I enjoyed the characters and their varying relationships with each other, although I though Jack’s wife got short shrift almost as if she was a token character ready to be written out in the future maybe.
I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for Randall Wood’s other books.
Synopsis: When a prominent lawyer is shot while waiting at a suburban stop sign it sets off a nation-wide manhunt for an elusive killer. Special Agent Jack Randall of the FBI finds himself appointed to track down and stop the shooter. Not by his superiors, but by the killer himself.
As more bodies fall the shooter takes his message to the press, earning the support of the public with his choice of targets and confounding the FBI at every turn. From the desert of Nevada to the urban jungle of New York City, Jack and his team follow the trail of bodies and haunting messages left behind by the killer. With the pressure to find him mounting on Jack, the assassin’s crimes grow bolder, and his message more sinister and closer to home.
It becomes clear to Jack that in order to find the shooter, he may have to look inside his own past, and become the man he was years ago.
