Heads You Die by Steve Cole download in pdf, ePub, iPad
Fates will be decided with the flip of a coin. James makes a point to declare that he will never shoot someone in cold blood, and a villain declares James will shoot people. With corrupt cops and hired assassins hot on his heels, James must travel through Havana and brave Caribbean waters to stop a countdown to mass murder. Action packed, but has its ups and downs.
This flatness made it difficult for me to invest too much in her character. Finally we got a plot with some world domination aspirations. In fact there's plenty of action throughout the story, but unfortunately the more that the novel progresses the duller it gets. James ducked inside the sidecar as the windshield was smashed clear off, and his head almost went with it. Here is a look at the artwork for the underwater action scene from the book, as well as a couple of character portraits.
Sadly the characters didn't inspire as much excitement as usual. James aimed his pistol at the man's neck and fired, but the metal pellet merely bounced off the fist as it swept down in a killer blow. Sure, we learned a lot about Jagua's youth, but when it came to her feelings she seemed flat.
Smarts, and a lot of them. This one was good but not great - it played it safe, did not leave an impression on me I couldn't live without, and the characters and story were average.
