Deadline picks right up from where the last installment ended. I do have to admit, though, that I enjoyed Deadline more than #10 as it brought back characters from earlier installments instead of Jack fending for himself. Now in this story, is there a doublecross? Is Jack being set-up? Who hired all these killers to snuff out Jack and Bear? Jack doesn't trust Frank, yet he took on this clandestine mission for him. Is Frank on the up and up?
I was somewhat confused about the twins during the story and the real identity of the woman Jack supposedly killd 10 years ago. Was she a body double? Who arranged that? The body in the morgue was supposed to be one of the twins, but, again, it was another look alike. Both twins are alive but was who?
Mission complete, Jack and Bear split up at the end. Are they destined to not see one another again? What's been bothering Bear? During the final battle, Jack slipped up and allowed himself to be filmed on camera and now the whole world knows what he did and what he looks like. With hired killers and the CIA on the lookout, Jack will have a difficult time hiding this time.
Still, many questions are left unanswered, and Im forced to wait for book #12 to be released so that I can finally see how it all ends. One thing for certain, Jack is a cold-blooded killer!
