National Security by Marc Cameron

National Security - Marc Cameron

This one had a good premise and a pretty decent idea of a hero, unfortunately it lacked in delivery, and the whole thing quickly (too quickly) fizzled off.

It actually reminded me a lot of Forsyth's Kill List I read a couple of years ago with the premise, the hero, the mission. Maybe it reminded me too much of it, actually, and I expected the same flawless delivery, pacing, and characterization, only to end up bored and dissatisfied.

Slow, dull and rehashed with not even a spark of originality...Or maybe I simply wasn't in the mood of a thriller.
