He is the perfect assassin. But when he goes off the grid for 72 hours for a few days of rest The Program is worried that their valuable soldier has become a liability. They set him on a new mission to take out an extremist military guy named Eugene Moore and to finish the mission that the previous operative had not completed. He had one order besides to kill Eugene Moore. Do not go into the camp. Of course, what does Daniel Martin (the new name of the protagonist) do? Go into the camp, of course.
This book is filled with excitement and thrills. You really get into the protagonist's head. They called him Boy Nobody in the first book. You get to see all the decisions he makes and how unusual his take on the world truly is. He is without fear. And this fearlessness gives him a great advantage in most situations. He has learned to fit into almost any situation and make it work for him. He is a lean, mean, killing machine... and a kid to boot. I wasn't exactly sure how old he was, but I assumed high school age.
If you are looking for an exciting read that just makes you stay up at night to finish just to discover what the heck is really going on, then this is the book for you.
Highly recommended. 5 Stars!
I received this book as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from Net Galley in return for an honest review. My ARC copy was called Lost Mission so I assume there was a title change at some point. Definitely looking forward to reading book one and then any other books that appear in this series. Just my cup of tea!
