Book Review – Our Justice by John W. Howell

Our JusticeGoodreads Synopsis:

The terrorist leader and financier Matt Jacobs has figured out a way to eliminate the President. He believes he has come up with the ultimate weapon and needs help in getting close enough to the president to use it. He is relying on John Cannon’s stature as a hero to help him carry it off by providing the entry into the Oval Office. When confronted by Matt, John finds himself walking the fine line of pretending to help Matt while trying to figure out a countermeasure to the plan.

The action begins with John fearing for his life. John is forced to run from his house to avoid a killer. Clearly, whoever is trying to get him has a mission to accomplish, and the elimination of John is at the top of the to-do list. One survival does not a story make and the quest to thrive takes John and his love, Stephanie from the beaches of Port Aransas to West Virginia and finally to Matt Jacob’s corporate headquarters at the Embarcadero Center in San Francisco. There John finally understands what he needs to do to protect Stephanie and him from further mayhem. He chooses a path that takes him to the ultimate test while jeopardizing those he loves.

The third book in the John J. Cannon Trilogy brings together two strong wills for a showdown. The question to be answered is who will feel the satisfaction that the achievement of justice delivers? John, Matt or neither?

My Review:

John has done it again. Our Justice picks up where His Revenge left off.  John Cannon is back and, again, the bad guys are hot on his trail. It’s been fun to watch the development of the John Cannon through these three books. He has gone from a lawyer just looking for some R&R to a Texas James Bond. He charms the ladies, gets shot at, manages to stay alive and is viewed as a hero. All in a day’s work.

John pulls it off. His Tangueray Gin with olives and love for coffee set him up as an iconic character who dines with his enemy and compliments his coffee. The way John W. Howell has created this character, you get the feeling that his coolness and humor under pressure will always save the day.

I was both happy and sad while reading this book. I was happy to see the story come to its ultimate arc. I was said that the story came to an end. I hope to see John Cannon in future books. His style hearkens back to the playboy attitude and sophistication of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee.

Good job John W. Howell. It was an enjoyable ride.
