"The first novel in an explosive new series inspired by Robert Ludlum's Bourne universe, The Treadstone Resurrection introduces an unforgettable hero and the shadowy world that forged him ... Operation Treadstone has nearly ruined Adam Hayes. The top-secret CIA Black Ops program trained him to be an all but invincible assassin, but it also cost him his family and any chance at a normal life. Which is why he was determined to get out. Working as a carpenter in rural Washington state, Adam thinks he has left Treadstone in the past, until he receives a mysterious email from a former colleague, and soon after is attacked by an unknown hit team at his job site. Adam must regain the skills that Treadstone taught him--lightning reflexes and a cold conscience--in order to discover who the would-be killers are and why they have come after him now. Are his pursuers enemies from a long-ago mission? Rival intelligence agents? Or, perhaps, forces inside Treadstone? His search will unearth secrets in the highest levels of government and pull him back into the shadowy world he he worked so hard to forget"--… (lisätietoja)

My first library book since lockdown - and I have no idea why I wanted to read such a blokey book. If there was a Man Book award, rather than the Man Booker, this would win. The story, about a bionic assassin seeking to uncover the truth about his friend's death in Venezuela, was completely ruined by the writing, complete with childish onomatopoeia (thwap, braaaaap, BOOM!) and ridiculous dialogue ('I've got something better than a plan - I've got a bag of guns' and 'We're going to diiiiiiiie!') Not to mention all the flashbacks in italics and military terminology that constantly requires translation.

Joshua Hood is apparently one of many authors writing under the Robert Ludlum 'brand' (complete with trademark) and according to fans of the series, this novel is a successful imitator, but honestly, I despair of the male imagination if cliched film action scenes triumph over character and intelligible conversation. No more for me, thanks! ( )

The Treadstone Resurrection by Joshua Hood

What if you had worked for Uncle Sam for years, been a lethal human weapon and finally decided to return to normal live to spend time with your family? What if the life you had lead in the military had made it difficult to be as you once were but you were doing everything in your power to return to a simpler more loving life with wife and son and then one day it all fell apart and every skill you had put behind you was suddenly required again? That happened ot Adam Hayes in this first book of a new series based on the training ground Bourne went through in the trilogy about him written long ago.

Having read the trilogy I was interested to see what a spin-off book might be like written by a man with military skills in his arsenal and set in the present. And, I am glad I read this book though sometimes for some reason it reminded me of the movies Expendables and A-Team. It is my opinion that when reading fiction one sometimes has to leave reality, believability and plausibility behind and just enjoy the ride and not dissect whether or not one man could realistically do all that Hayes did.

What I liked:
* Adam Hayes: He seemed like a good man who had been given a raw deal. I would love for him to have a nice safe life with his wife and son but it seems highly unlikely in the series this book introduces
* Deano & his wife: wonderful people that were good friends to Adam
* The introduction of Waters and JT – they might show up in future books in the series
* Some of the people introduced that played parts in the story: Boggs, Ford, Izzy, Shaw
* That good prevailed over evil
* The action scenes were believable
* That when the book ended I wondered what would happen next

What I wanted to know
* How Hayes get all of the gear to Venezuela when he parachuted in
* How many others from Treadstone might be around to show up in future books
* More of Hayes’s backstory

What I didn’t like:
* The bad guys I was meant not to like

Did I enjoy this book? Yes
Would I read more in this series? Yes

Thank you to Head of Zeus & Midas Public Relations for the ARC – This is my honest review.
