Publisher's Summary

Jon Reznick is a "ghost": a black-ops specialist who takes his orders from shadowy handlers, and his salary from the US government. Still mourning the loss of his beloved wife on 9/11, he's dispatched to carry out a high-level hit. Reznick knows only that it must look like suicide. It's textbook.

But the target is not the man Reznick expected. The whole setup is wrong. In an instant the operation is compromised, and Reznick is on the run with the man he was sent to kill. A man wanted by the FBI, and by a mysterious terrorist organization hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees. FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein is determined to track him down, and to intercept whatever it is Reznick was sent to do.

When Reznick's young daughter becomes a pawn in the game, he has to use more than his military training to stay one step ahead of those responsible. Meanwhile, he is the only person who knows the true extent of the threat to national security - and has the stealth and determination to stop it.

I almost never rate 5 stars

This is a great gripping thriller. It's interesting through the entire book. I've read hundreds of this genre. It becomes harder and harder to find a great book. This is in the top 5%.

Above Average

The writing is good. Character development ok, could be better. Detail minimal. There is just enough of each element to convey the story with tension, suspense, and interest. However, there isn't enough to really add texture and depth. And while we cheer for the good guys, there really isn't enough about him, his daughter (no stories of things they did together, no memories of a birthday, Christmas shared) that the reader really doesn't get emotionally attached. I wish there was more to the characters, more descriptions of location, people .- that there was more depth and developed.

Hard Road

If you have ever been drawn into intrigue you could not walk away from, even in the dark night, well you found it again. Hard Road is a mystery behind every blade of grass be careful now. Get plenty of sleep, lock you're doors have plenty of refreshments. Now you are ready. Enjoy as I have.

Great Story!

I loved this story! Though it is not as fleshed out as some other series, it is action-packed and hard to put down (or turn off). The narrator, however is a little more melodramatic in unnecessary places and bland in others.

Fair

The narrator was too monotone for my taste, which distracted from the overall listening experience.

Excellent espionage listen with superb narration!

Hard Road is written for the conspiracy, suspense and action junkie with extra credit for its overt US patriotism. Protagonist Jon Reznick is an ex-US special forces operator who is now freelancing. His wife died on 9/11/2001 when their daughter was a baby. Reznick is raising his daughter with the help of his mother-in-law. I'll definitely listen to the other novels in the Jon Reznick series.

Awful narrator

The story sounds good but the narration on this book is so awful that you cannot concentrate on the story. Only got to chapter five and couldn't listen to any more. Probably a good book but ruined
