Jet by Russell Blake is the first book in a series about a former Israeli Mossad assassin. Mr. Blake is an international best selling author of action/adventure novels.

Jet is a 28 year old ex-Mossad agent who was a lethal assassin before faking her own death to “retire”. But with a past like Jet, retirement is not as easy as it sounds.

I enjoyed reading Jet by Russell Blake, a fast and violent book with a female protagonist. Even though it is exciting, the plot felt formulaic with no big surprises. I thought the author used the same shtick as many other authors to humanize a female protagonist in many other books.

The protagonist is has an abusive past, but someone is still tagged as “assassin material”. I haven’t met many assassins or spies during my life, but people who become work in that field don’t usually come from that kind of past – the best spies don’t look like models, but those that can melt in the background and disappear.
They’re also not full with rage, or they’ll last one assignment, at the most.

I really liked the idea of the novel though, a tough lady, retired from intelligence apparatus by faking her death, than being sucked back in. strangely, for a foreigner living in a foreign land, Jet doesn’t seem to miss her culture. Usually people try and seek out something that will remind them of their past, whether it’s a movie, food, or even just listening to tourists talk. For Jet, however, this doesn’t apply. I thought the whole story would have been much more authentic if some of those elements were incorporated.

The author, to his credit, does say that he wrote the book for fun and didn’t get bogged down with accuracy too much. I agree with the author, it was a lot of fun to read, stimulating and thrilling. ( )

This overlooked book sat in my Kindle library for more then two years and was finally chosen after completing another book by Russell Blake. Jet is an edge of your seat international roller coaster ride. The story opens with Jet as a small town store owner on the island of Trinidad. Suddenly, Jet is attacked by a professional hit man who is part of a squad sent to kill her. Readers soon learn that she is not the demure, innocent female that others in the town believed. She, too, is a ruthless killer and former member of Mossad - the secret service of Israel. She got out of the business two years earlier by collaborating with her boss to fake her death. How did they find her and who's paying for the hit? Only two people were aware of her existence and location...the other was her former boss.

Jet is successful in escaping the island and heads to Israel to confront her former boss. When she arrives, she finds herself in another fight with a professional hit squad. This time, her former boss was the target and she finds him gut shot and unconscious. To save him, she has to kill all the attackers.

She soon learns that every Mossad agent who participated in their last mission - where she faked her death - were recently assassinated and only her and David remained. They finally learn who is responsible for the hits and why...it was time to plan their own hits and become "The Predators" to end this madness. The author is not making this task easy and has added some twists, turns and traps for the two of them. The journey becomes a quest for survival tinged with a touch of revenge. Don't miss this one!

Book # 1, in the Jet series

This story is Hot Hot, action packed from start to finish mayhem around 50% of the book with a bit of romance thrown into a very captivating drama. What is not to like for a thrill junky as myself. “Jet” provides everything I like in this type of books: expertize in clandestine enterprises, minutia details in action, equipment and scenery, in your face action, a hot assassin and it goes on and on. Of course you need to enjoy a fast-paced story with lots of shooting, stabbing, blowing up people….the bang-bang definitely is at the driver seat….If you love spy/assassin adventure this series if for you. Prepare to start running at the opening page and not stop till the very end…

The scenes play out like an action movie: very visual and exciting. The prose is clear and straightforward” in all an easy read. Although the protagonist is a female the author does not go sexist or ridicule his character, her sex happens to be incidental. She is definitely a woman you don’t want to mess around with: she is lethal if you cross her and very intimidating most of the time. Jet is an ex-Mossad operative, who kicks ass in one of the best action sequences I have read in a long time.

Of course this is a heart-pounding thriller with unique twists only Mr. Blake can deliver. The scenes also combined opulence and glamour and hard hitting black ops tradecraft we will ever see.

This is definitely a humdinger of a thriller ( )

Whilst quite well written with some very good descriptive passages, I found the action sequences a little too simple for our heroine, and there was rather too much gore involved for my liking. I did find myself wanting to know how things turned out for her, but not enough to make me want to read the sequels to find out - there are too many other books that hold greater interest for me. ( )

Secret Mosad agent Jet has retired into a small island community.
However, one day she is attacked by enemy soldiers and has to reach out to her former colleagues and boss in order to survive.
The only problem, according to them, she died (as set up by Jet and her boss to allow her to retire).

Definitely worth a read! ( )
