They are humanity's defense against the supernatural. They are the light in the darkness. They are the guardians that walk in the night. They are the Shadow Council. Joanna Harrison is a freelance editor, working mother, and loving daughter. She is also the great-granddaughter of legendary steel driving man John Henry, and she has taken up his hammer to fight against the monsters that threaten her family and her world. She is Jo Henry, and she packs one hell of a punch.

This is my first introduction to John C. Harkness' writings, and I have to say, the only problem I have with the book, it was way to short. I'm looking at Harknes' series and I'm going to start at the beginning. A quick comment about the narrator Mr Foster did a really good job with the characters gave them very distinct voices easy to identify. The one aspect I found refreshing is the distinctive rhythms and inflections without becoming a caricature of the different characters. For that I thank you

"My name’s Alex Cheradon. I’m a private investigator. That means I investigate…private…stuff. I do NOT slay vampires, battle demons, fight zombies or vanquish evil spirits. In fact, you know what? Let’s just strike a line through the whole supernatural genre and call it a big no-no for me, okay? Steven Raines (you know, the man who made billions making an operating system that out-Microsoft-ed Microsoft?) hired me to look for his missing daughter."

I loved this book, it was a breath of fresh air it's hard to write comedy but Jason Krumbine had me laughing. The narrator keeps the feel of the book it tells you to let reality take a vacation. Can't wait for the next book

When Secret Intelligence Service deniable operator Nick Stone aborts an officially sanctioned assassination attempt at the Houses of Parliament, having realised who the target is, he is given a chilling ultimatum by his bosses: fly to Panama and finish the job, or Kelly, the 11-year-old orphan in his guardianship, will be killed.

LAST LIGHT WAS NOT MY FAVORITE , BUT IT IS STILL HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE REST IN THIS GENRE. THE CONTINUING SAGA OF NICK STONE, HIS WARD KELLY AND THE PROBLEM OF BEING A "k".MCNAB PUTS YOU IN NICK'S HEAD WHY HE MAKES THE CHOICES HE MAKES, MY HEART ALWAYS GOES OUT FOR NICK , THIS TIME THE FIRM USES THREATS AGAINST KELLY TO MAKE NICK DO THERE BIDDING,HOW WILL HE DO THIS AND NOT LOSE A PIECE OF HIMSELF. THE DESCRIPTION AND, THE DETAIL GIVES YOU THE FEEL OF THE JUNGLE, I COULD FEEL THE SWEAT DRIPPING OFF ME, MCNAB IF YOU NEVER READ HIS BOOKS YOU MAY FEEL OVERWELMED WITH THE ACTION AND THE DESCRIPTION. MY SUGGESTION IS START SLOW READ ABOUT HIS LIFE THEN YOU CAN APPRECIATE HIS WRITINGS.
