My latest read was No Mercy by John Gilstrap. It is the first book in his Jonathan Graves series. Jonathan Grave is a wealthy ex-Delta Force soldier who owns a private security company. He specializes in hostage rescue missions and has connections to FBI. The book opens with a rescue operation gone bad that develops
into a much more complex storyline. The level of violence is high and some readers may struggle with the ethical decisions made by the main characters. The character develop is solid. I enjoyed Gilstrap’s prose style, but there are a fair number of editing issues in the text.
I have attached an interview with Gilstrap about the book. Overall, I give it a 4/5 rating and expect I will try a couple more books in the series.
