I have to be careful here for fear of you thinking I am a crazed fan who's madly in love with the fictional Ben B, or even the Author Robert Parker! Calm down people! I just love the sarcasm, the action and the uneven moral code of a character that's like no other superman I've ever heard of!This next tale sees Ben, stirred into action by his unceasing devotion to his nation, even after said 'nation' saw fit to imprison him in the last book. It is Jeremiah of the National Crime Agency, who lights the fire of his patriotism once more and sends him hurtling into his next mission with little time to catch his breath from the last one!From custom built, untraceable secret phones 'Cryptocall' to 'Hallo Kittie' snorkel head gear, he rushes to his next quest with hastily improvised equipment and little knowledge of what awaits him when he gets there.Robert Parker's style of writing will immediately place images in your mind and the artistic embellishment of every phrase gives detail and meaning to each scene. Phrases like 'the ocean is an eager eater of secrets,' immediately transforms a postcard image into a dangerous expedition involving a cunning, powerful and unpredictable foe! The fact that 30 feet underwater a pocket of air from an ancient time becomes the difference between him being spotted by the antagonists, or drowning before that, makes you realise again, the unique and the unexpected turns you will experience as you shadow Ben Bracken. Ben Bracken is unlike any James Bond, Superman, Thor or Batman you have ever encountered. In my head he's a six footer, permanent stubble, Clint Eastwood eyes, and a pert butt! He is a 'grown up' super-hero, and as you and I know, that's the only way to fly!!
Well, I am actually mostly reading romance novels and am not a particular fan of action thrillers, however after my husband has highly recommended me this book I decided to give it a try. The main character of the book Ben Bracken is highly charismatic, clever and trained man whose goal is to save millions of lives. I associated myself so much with a character that I felt like I am not reading a story but actually am participating in a story. What I loved especially about this book was the language of the author and his ability to introduce conflicts and increase tension. While reading the book I was able to see a mental movie and this movie was very interesting to watch. I think it is a kind of the plot based on which a great movie could be created. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Even if you are not a fan of action thrillers you will find it very engaging and interesting.
Although I haven't read the first book about Ben Bracken I fully enjoyed this second book Apex. In the end of the previous book Ben Bracken was put in jail by the government. In this book Ben Bracken escaped from the prison in order to save Great Britain. Throughout the book Ben becomes a real super hero and solves seemingly unsolvable problems. It's impossible not to fall in love with Ben Bracken. The book kept my attention tight for two days while I was reading this book and now I am going to purchase the first book about Ben Bracken. It is one of the best books I have read this year.
