In my first encounter with Mr. Maloney's works, Book 1 "Wingman" I was instantly mesmerized by the author's ability to draw in the reader with his skill to weave a tale wrought with all the trappings of a great television serial of the 1950's. Mr. Maloney's interspersal of comedy, danger and sexual innuendo brings the ready to the edge of an abyss, only to suddenly rescue the reader with instances of "daring do" from the protagonist. I am currently on book number 7 of 18 in this "wingman" series and I can hardly wait to finish this and begin the next! For sheer adventure and pleasure filled reading, I highly recommend Mr. Maloney as the "go to" weaver of magical tales.
Although these stories take place in a different era than we live in today, they are just as relevant today. The underlying storyline is scary with today's Russia invading Crimea. The characters are people we like. The battle scenes are very well written and Mr. Maloney makes you feel as if you are there. Anyone who likes fast paced, action filled stories will be sure to like this series of stories.
This review doesn't just pertain to this book but, the whole Wingman Series. Those of us who like Sci-Fi or Fantasy will love this series. I am currently on book 14 and I can hardly put one of these books down. Action, adventure, a little sex, booze, guns etc. what's not to like? One of the all time best series I have ever read!
I think it was an interesting book, he does go overboard with the things his star character is supposed to be able to do. I guess that is just the author's license to jazz up fiction to make it more interesting but it's kind of a stretch.
I read this series many years ago when it first appeared. Was always waiting for the next one to come out. I enjoy it as much now as I did then. Now I can read them at will without having to wait. The good old fashion good guy, Hunter, makes me grin when the bad guys are beat up.
Pretty good read, only part I skip is the constant recap of the situation and the characters. I understand it's for the new readers but after book 5 I think anyone just jumping into a series is just a moron so it's not really needed.
