I compare them all to each other (Robert Crais books)
It's always Joe Pike
"21st Century Robert B Parker"
Fast paced, gritty and brutal. The lead character, Pike, is almost too good to be true if you like a hero who is remote, mysterious, extraordinarily disciplined and able to make any situation, however seemingly desperate work for him, but hey, I listen to escape normal life and I would definitely want him on my side in a tight spot. The style of narration is hard-edged without nuance and William Roberts doesn't try too hard to differential vocally between characters but it worked for me. The compact style of writing reminds me of a modern day Robert B Parker.
I also enjoyed some of the supporting characters and will definitely be reading some of the Elvis Cole books by the same author - sounds more like a lover than a soldier.....
Immediately bought the next book in the series as I wanted more (I can recommend that one too!)
