"A Navy SEAL has nothing left to live for and everything to kill for after he discovers that the American government is behind the deaths of his team in this ripped-from-the-headlines political thriller. On his last combat deployment, Lieutenant Commander James Reece's entire team was killed in a catastrophic ambush that also claimed the lives of the aircrew sent in to rescue them. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government. Now, with no family and free from the military's command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he's learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward avenging the deaths of his family and teammates. With breathless pacing and relentless suspense, Reece ruthlessly targets his enemies in the upper echelons of power without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law. An intoxicating thriller that cautions against the seduction of absolute power and those who would do anything to achieve it, The Terminal List is perfect for fans of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Stephen Hunter, and Nelson DeMille"--"A Navy SEAL has nothing left to live for and everything to kill for after he discovers that the American government is behind the deaths of his team"--… (mais)

LOVED it! LOVED it!
Hallelujah, James Reece is the Punisher! An awesome first novel full of action. The pace was great from front to back there is no downtime. I was a bit concern that it'll be too technical, but it wasn't. Pure good vs evil. Need a longer list in the next book because I didn't want it to end. A book this good, I'll read anything Carr writes.

Thank you Jack Carr for your service and for defending our freedom. 🙏❤️ ( )

I'm a mystery/thriller lover who doesn't like murder/extreme violence. I'd rather be challenged by a puzzle, but without gratuitous violence. Some authors provide this better than others. In The Terminal List, there's too much violence and not enough puzzle/thrill. The audio edition is narrated by the fantastic Ray Porter. ( )

The Terminal List by Jack Carr
Series: Yes: James Reece #1
Format: Hardcover
Stars: 4 1/2
Recommend: Yes
Would Reread: Maybe


I ran across book 3 in the goodreads giveaway page and thought it sounded like it might be
similar to Matthew Reilly's book.

But sadly its nothing like Matthew Reilly. And to compare the two is being unfair.
This book is more realistic, gritty and ummm violent. o_O (And if you have ever read a Matthew Railly book thats saying something!!)

I still enjoyed the characters and the story was awesome.
My only complaint is the pacing of the book, it slowed down in a few spot and then at time it felt like it jumped.

I do look forward to reading the next two books in the series when my library reopens.

I give honest reviews and all my opinions are my own.

DESCRIPTION, NOT REVIEW: On his last combat deployment, Lieutenant Commander James Reece’s entire team was killed in a catastrophic ambush. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government.

Now, with no family and free from the military’s command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he’s learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward avenging the deaths of his family and teammates. With breathless pacing and relentless suspense, Reece ruthlessly targets his enemies in the upper echelons of power without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law. ( )

Lieutenant Commander James Reece is a Navy SEAL; a skilled, highly trained and deadly soldier. Things start to go bad when his men are led into an ambush in Afghanistan. Soon after returning home, his family and the only other soldier to survive the attack are targeted. When they unsuccessfully come for him, Reese discovers a conspiracy that reaches to the very highest levels of government. Now Reese has nothing left to lose and a powerful sense of vengeance.

The Terminal List is not just a political thriller, it’s a tale of vengeance. Everything that James Reece cares about has been stripped from him and nothing will stop him from visiting retribution on all those who played a part in the conspiracy. With the help of a few trusted friends, Reece determines who is responsible and puts together a list of the people who are going to have to pay.

Jack Carr has created a convincing action hero and Carr’s own experience as a SEAL shines through from descriptions of intelligence gathering, battle preparations and brutal combat. Comparisons to other contemporary action heroes are inevitable, but there are also flashes that remind me of earlier action series such as Don Pendleton’s Executioner series. This is particularly true when Reese shows up with his arsenal of weapons to deliver very personal forms of justice and retribution on those who deserve it.

It’s tough to rise above the noise in the political thriller genre but Carr has delivered a promising debut. The Terminal List is a top-notch thriller and Carr is an author to watch. It will be interesting to see where he is able to go next. Highly recommended.

I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of this book from the publisher. ( )
