Publisher's Summary

A friend in danger. A shadowy psych ward. A conspiracy beyond Reznick's worst nightmares.

When an old Delta Force buddy comes to Jon Reznick for help, paranoid and fearing for his life, Reznick feels duty-bound to protect him. As a black-ops specialist, loyalty to his brothers in arms comes before everything - even the law.

But Jerry White proves difficult to protect. A runaway from a top-security psychiatric facility in upstate New York, he's considered a danger to himself and others, and Reznick is powerless to stop shadowy senior hospital managers taking Jerry back by force. When FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein warns him off, Reznick ignores her advice, suspecting the Wittenden Institute is not what it seems.

Digging deeper into the hospital's background - and that of its esteemed manager, Dr. Robert Gittinger - Reznick begins to unravel a sinister plot that will bring warzone black ops to American soil. And when his own life comes under threat, he discovers that Jerry is trapped in a web of high-level conspiracies more terrifying than anything he has ever encountered...

Reznick to the rescue!!!!

What a great addition to the John Reznick series.
I won't restate the plot, the publisher's summary lays it out perfectly. For me to say more would only spoil this.
What I will say is that if you're looking for a well written book that is a high stakes, action packed thriller (Audible lists it as political but it's a thriller ) then this is the book for you!
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is $7.47.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this entire series.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

J.B. Turner packs a lot of action and suspense...

...into his novels without sacrificing his great plots. Just read the publisher's summary for the perfect setup. Hard Fall is a very intense suspense mystery with strong political undertones. The novel is standalone, but like most series the Jon Reznick novels are more enjoyable listened to in order. Jeffrey Kafer narrates all of the Reznick series. He does an excellent job.

Loved it and hated for it to end. Good overcomes plotted destruction. If you want a good who done it, this book fits the bill.

Harbor Fall??

too heavy with bad language, slow, slow story line. Too many stupid actions just to carry the story forward.

Sluggish

This is Book 5 and the hero is still timid and always too late to figure things out. The FBI ADD is always an idiot and sanctimonious (even though her life was saved in Book 4 by this whimpy guy). The CIA is always the villain but never suffers the consequences of oversight. I’m not going to give this series any more chances to develop. It’s just sappy and sluggish with no heroes or resolutions. Really sorry I wasted time and money giving it five chances.

Not the Reznick I know

Sadly, my least favorite book in the series. Still entirely worth reading... just a little uninspired when compared to the rest of the series. I kept coming back to the simple fact that I couldn't unthink: The Jon Reznick I know from the first 4 books would never have spent so much time screwing around before he rolled up his sleeves and busted his buddy out of the nuthouse. The series is based on a character who is a man of action. There is a long history of him flying in the face of federal authority to do what he believes is right. So why would he spend the majority of a book trying to make up his mind about walking into a hospital even if it meant banging a couple of heads together in an effort to spring his war-time buddy?

The rating loses an entire star for being based on a faulty plotting premise. I could overlook it, had it not been the thread holding the entire story together.

Again, entirely worth reading... just try to put this problem out of your mind, if you can.

Jon should have went AWOL

I was going to write a longer more detailed review but I would be here quite a while. needless to say this book was by far the most disappointing entry for the series. there was no plot, the characters were very superficial, this just felt like a complete waste of time. What a waste for the end of what could have been a great series of books.

JR n JW

Very easy to get into and return to due to the quick pace and short chapters. My 4th JR novel and I still feel as if the hero is hiding or maybe not aware himself of something important.

Exciting read and great listen..



I gotta tell ya these were all exciting books but Reznick didn’t sleep any more than 3 or 4 hours in all five books. He popped Dexedrine like they were M&M’s. That was the most ridiculous thing about this series. And if the CIA was anything like they were in this book then that agency is really, really bad.

Anyway, this was the final book in the Jon Reznick series and overall I thoroughly enjoyed them. This one, however, seemed a little bit repetitive. I remember several times thinking “wasn’t that just said?”

This one was about Reznick trying to get his friend out of an institution where they were brainwashing him, and others, and again it had a CIA agent controlling everything.

There was no romance and the F-bomb was used 100 times.

As to the narration: Jeffrey Kafer was the same in every book; good men’s voices and terrible women’s voices. BUT it was okay since there was no romance.

enjoyable story<br />

another good book from J B Turner. enjoyable and pretty well written with out being spectacular.
easy listening, although I do believe the narrator could sometimes use more intonation in his voice, as he can be a bit monotone.
