America loves John Cannon, its newest hero, and the President wants to present him with the highest civilian medal for bravery for saving the Annapolis midshipman from a terrorist plot to destroy them. While in Washington for the award ceremony, John unwillingly becomes an accomplice in another plan by the same group to attack the credibility of the US President and the stability of the worldwide oil market. There is no way out as John either becomes a traitor to America or causes thousands of innocent people to die if he refuses.
The second John J Cannon Thriller moves from a barrier Island off the coast of Texas to Washington DC, then to Northern California, and finally to Ecuador. John is on the receiving end of an offer he cannot, refuse. His avowed enemy Matt Jacobs now wants John to help him shake the reputation of the US in the world political arena. If John refuses, Matt plans to murder innocent Americans including John’s latest relationship. John’s only way out is to pretend to go along with the plan and hope for a miracle.
His Revenge, by John W. Howell, picks up where My Grl, the first book in the John Cannon series, leaves off. Cannon finds himself in the hospital, temporarily blinded, and a national hero. He’s not everyone’s hero, however, as the bad guys still want him to end up metabolically challenged.
I will leave the story there at the risk of giving up spoilers and let you know that this book is a fun, quick read. It has action, but is infused with a bit of humor. It also plays upon the ineptness and gullibility of the bad guys ending with a wonderful series of twists at the end.
All of the characters from My Grl, with the exception of the dead ones, are back. The book is a page turner and I look forward to reading Our Justice which is already downloaded to my Kindle ready to go.
Nice work, John.
