Everything is 'normal' then there is shooting and a chase and it blossoms from there.
They thought that problem was solved. Chuck Brandt is determined to save America from a dangerous plot. And he's dead set on saving Maria from her psychotic father--General Ivan Lazar. Chuck is chasing a legend deep into the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, but his impossible quest leads him straight into a green hell. There he faces diverse evils, from the jungle itself to General Lazar's Black Cobra guerrillas--the sadistic monsters tasked with the slow death of Chuck Brandt.
He uncovers a horrible secret, but will he be able to stop a madman? This was a pretty good read! The characters had a lot of emotions and backstories but they were gapped from time to time. The chapters jumped from one location to another but were easily identifiable through location markers and the beginning of the chapters!
I though it had an awesome main character with a desire to win good vs evil. Great secondary characters with a couple of good villains. I can recommend this one easily! Traditional action novel It was a good book. If you like this genre it has all of the action and guns.
I think the character interactions could have been more interesting and the plot been more developed. May 17, T. This book is almost non-stop action. It seemed like every page had someone that was getting shot, stabbed, beat to a pulp, blown up, or kidnapped. Chuck the main character is an assassin. Is he a good guy or a bad guy? You could argue either side. He pulls off some bad-ass moves. I recently read that to have a successful thriller book you need to show your characters failings and continually ratchet up the misery while keeping the action increasing.
Weston does that in spades with This book is almost non-stop action. Weston does that in spades with this book.
The Recruiter (Chuck Brandt, #1) by Roger Weston
I had read the first half of this book then stopped. I must've had a brain freeze because when I picked it back up barley a chapter into it and my heart was pegged and sleep was going to be a long way off.
I literally chewed through the rest of the book in four days. Two more that it should have taken but in my defense I went on vacation and it's hard to fish with a laptop in my hands.
This story has a lot of characters that form a troop of baddies and I won't spoil anything but a good time was not had by all. The only thing I disliked about the book is that it leaves threads at the end for the continuation of the story. I personally do not like that. I prefer each book in a series to stand on it's own and have a clear ending.
That is to take nothing away from this book because it delivers on so much that it wasn't one of the endings that causes you to groan with disbelief that the author ended it there.

Thriller fans will enjoy this book and it will be very interesting to see what Mr. Weston has in store for Chuck. Right, I really wish the authors would give us a blurb instead of what others said about the book. This gets to be a very bad habit and does nothing to promote the book.

I want to know what the book is about not a snippet or 50 from other readers. That said, the book was not bad. If you like the genre you will probably like this a lot. I really had a hard time getting thru this book. The narration was so bad I nearly gave up. The story is violent but may be better than I think if the reading would have been consistent. I just couldn't follow with all the halting at every few words.

Weston has in store for Chuck. His was given a job working in an apartment office. Many of the residents are immigrants who were seeking a place to get away from the tragedies of their homeland. They were given this chance by an outwardly benevolent program called Exodus. Chuck discovered that all was not as it appeared. When he tried to get his girlfriend and her father out of harm's way, things spiraled out of control. The love of his life is in danger and he feels compelled to find her and stop the madness from reaching even more people.
I love how Mr. Weston shows varied viewpoints. The reader sees how multiple people are involved in the different aspects of a plan that is diabolical in nature. This book is for Mature Audiences due to graphic violence, Adult Language, and suggestive sexual situations.

Non-stop action keeps you turning page's wondering what happens next. Great read excellent writing very hard to put down definitely a page turner. This book was exciting right from the beginning. Brandt is a hero whose background gives him another dimension. Because of it he has a moral reason for all the action.
The only reason I gave this book four stars rather than five was that I felt it ended very abruptly. I had seen this series and finally decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. The concept was good, conflicted main character trying to redeem himself. The writing flowed and was action packed. I'm definitely reading the rest of the series. Recommend to anyone looking for a Great Read.
