Good book
  • Chillhunter
this is David Wiltse at his finest. the story is gripping an 'edge of your seat' storyline.
the book arrived earlier than expected, packaged very well and it is as described and at an affordable price. what more can you ask?
  • Brightfury
this is not as good as David's other books, to much going on. and the story didn't grab my like the others.
  • Nikok
Very disconnected. If you like Hollywood style blow everything up because there is no quality of story, this is a book for you.
  • komandante
Fantastic character. Will miss having more books featuring John Becker.
  • Wohald
After browsing through all the reviews on this novel, the latest in the John Becker series by David Wiltse, I can understand why some readers were so disappointed by the latest (and so far last) in this series.

Wiltse does throw anyone who has read the previous five novels in this series a bit of a curveball by relegating his main characters to secondary (almost supporting) roles in this novel. Additionally the high quality of the first five books in this series does tend to set the bar very high for any thing else that follows them.

This book focuses more on the Una-bomber style villan, an unstable ex-professor named Jason Cole. Because of his perceived lack of recognition and injustices done to him, Cole basically brings New York City to it's knees through carefully planted bombs that take a devastating toll on the city. To complicate matters, Cole has no interest in being bought off by the city, rather he is only interested in the city correcting his perceived injustices.

Added to the mix are a complex array of supporting characters including a wise-guy, a gay hit man, and a very intelligent and ruthless young street thug who all see Cole as a means to a very quick payday. Cole's insistence on sticking to his principles and his lack of any interest in any monetary reward causes numerous complications and makes him that much harder to apprehend.

The book moves swiftly if a bit unexpectedly, and the conclusion does seem a bit forced-and is not your typical happy ending. With Becker however, this is not a totally suprising turn of events.

Although this book is not up to the standards of the rest of this series (all of which I would rate at 4-5 stars) this is still an very good stand alone novel which probably would have worked better outside of this series. The development of the supporting characters and the quick twists and turns of the plot make it a very fast and dramatic read.

The book takes place in New York City. What happenes is this guy named Jason Cole is a terrorist, and is blowing up trancars and bridges. He disguises himself as "Spring". He told the FBI that if they didn't give him $5Million in cash then he would blow up the whole New York City. One of the FBI agents named Karen takes matters into her own hands. She decides to pretend to be this women named Robin. She heard of the guy Spring and told him she would like to go on a date with him. He calls her and tells her where to meet him at. So she gets a rental car and buys a new outfit, to fit the description of Robin. She drove to the place spring told her to meet him at. She was waiting at a red light when someone opened the door, got in and another guy had her at gun point. The other guys name is Donny. He had cole tell her where to go. They drove all the way to Ithica, and Donny had the gun to her head the whole time.
Cole made her drive to the middle of nowhere. He had an abandoned house back there. By this time no one knew where Karen was. One of the other agents got information about this "Spring" guy and drove up to his house, the agents name was Meisner. Donny had a feeling someone was there. So he hid until he heard him come near the house. All of a sudden there was a knock on the door. "Hello,anyone home"? Cole heard the door open slowly , but he could barely see because of the darkness. Then he heard a shot and donny came running. Then out of coles mouth came an evil laugh.
You'll have to read the book to find out what happens to Karen, Donny, and Spring.
These are the literary elements the author used; Foreshadowing, surprise ending, and conflict.
For foreshadowing he gave hints about spring and you always knew when he was going to blow something else up.
The surprise ending wasn't what I expected it to be. I can't tell you what happens so you'll have to read the book!
and for the conflict spring has a problem with the FBI and wants $5million or he'll blow up the city.
Foreshadowing- The use of clues that suggest events that have yet to occur.
Surprise ending- a conclusion that violates the expectations of the reader.
Conflict- A struggle between opposing forces

I really liked this book because you never knew what was going to happen next unless the author used foreshadowing, it made you wanting to read more.
Blown Away by this book. Wiltse's John Becker is
one of the most intriguing characters of the
subgenre of thriller/crime novels detailing the
exploits of profilers. This one starts off great,
with a mad Unibomber type named Jason Cole seeking his revenge on the world. He becomes involved with all sorts of criminal types including a drug addicted arms thief and a gay mobster, all of whom become entangled in the plot for or against the villain.

The book has many intriguing characters, including the return of Pegeen, a junior FBI agent who works with Becker, a police detective who falls in love with her, and a varied assortment of lowlifes who all feed the plot.

The problem???? First, the ending is both unsatisfying and maddening. I won't spoil it for you, but it is not what I expected, nor what I or the characters deserved. Second, Becker plays only a minor role in this one, and his "tortured" persona has become cliched. Do we really need another detective who has a tendency toward e
