"Jack Reardon, former SAS soldier and current Australian Meta-State asset, has seen some messy battles. But "messy" takes on a whole new meaning when he finds himself tied to a chair in a torture shack, his cover blown wide open, all thanks to notorious killer-for-hire Ethan Blade. Blade is everything Jack doesn't believe in: remorseless, detached, lawless. Yet, Jack's only chance to survive is to strike a bargain with the devil and join forces with Blade. As they trek across a hostile desert, Jack learns that Blade is much more than a dead-eyed killer--and harder to resist than he should be. A year later, Jack is home and finally getting his life on track. Then Ethan Blade reappears and throws it all into chaos once more. It's impossible to trust the assassin, especially when his presence casts doubts on Jack's loyalty to his country, but Jack cannot ignore what Blade's return means: the mess that brought them together is far from over, and Ethan might just bring back the piece of Jack's soul he thought he'd lost forever."--page 4 of Cover.… (mais)

I have not been feeling well. But even so, I would've skipped everything to finish this book. I've got gritty, puffy eyes because for hours, I could not put it down. So fast-paced and full of gray and I loved the writing.

Looking forward to more! Going to go find more. ( )

Evrika, I can't believe it.... After 42 days I've finally finished this book.

But first an advice to Jack: Dude, when a poisonous serpent comes at you with its jaws open you don't just get your dick out! (to paraphrase C.S.Pacat)

I don't know what happened and why I couldn't connect with the book. Maybe it was because of the NOW, THEN, NOW, THEN shifts in the timeline. Maybe it was because I couldn't stop seeing Data from Star Trek when imagining Ethan Blade. Maybe it was because I started reading
Where Death Meets the Devil after finishing a book which I will forever remember as one of the best books I've read in my life.
Maybe it was because of the suspense being too suspenseful for my taste. One time I fell asleep on the couch. Another time I dropped the book to watch a documentary on mulch.... Mulch.

Whatever it was, it was a strange thing.
You see, the book was very decent. Jack and Ethan were decent MCs even if Jack's relationship with Ethan made me think of playing with a dangerous viper.



The book was action packed and the plot is quite interesting. Never mind I saw the bad guy a mile away, I'm never fun at parties anyway, especially when we play Cluedo.
This is a book that many will adore and I recommend you go ahead and read it, because I may really be an exception.

P.S. At 30% I broke down and started reading the THEN chapters first, then the NOW. Made no difference in the pacing. ( )
