The Kill Switch by James Rollins and Grant Blackwood, A Book Review

Pin It

A New Series From Two Excellent Authors.

What an exciting start to a new series, this time with James Rollins teaming up with Grant Blackwood. The Kill Switch is a winner in my opinion, and hopefully the beginning of many more stories about Tucker Wayne, and Kane.

James Rollins currently has the Sigma Force series in progress, up to book ten now, I believe. In addition, he’s written novels like Subterranean, Amazonia, and Ice Hunt.

Grant Blackwood is a well known names these days too. A successful solo author, he has teamed up with some of the best authors in their field, Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler. He’s co-written the Fargo series, featuring Remi and Sam Fargo, operating as an extension of Cussler’s NUMA. If you haven’t read Mr. Cussler’s original series starring (and I do mean starring) Dirk Pitt, you’re missing out on some fun, thrilling adventures.

You can see with their experience, this book has a lot going for it.

The story revolves about a former army ranger, Tucker, and his military dog, Kane. Recruited by the Sigma Force for what seems like a fairly easy mission. Rescue a scientist in Russia.

It doesn’t stop there. The secret biological weapon is hidden away, and the scientist expect Tucker to help and protect him while he recovers it. Others want the professor for what they seek. If they succeed, it might mean global disaster.

Tucker and Kane are an amazing team. I think I would have enjoyed the book no matter what the plot, just reading about their relationship and their teamwork. It’s fascinating to read something of what military dogs are trained to do.

There’s an exciting, suspenseful video clip included that you will enjoy watching.

I’m also delighted to announce, that the second in the Tucker Wayne series, War Hawk, is available for preorder now. It is scheduled for release on April 12, 2016. Read this one first so you’ll get to know Tucker Wayne and Kane before it arrives on the shelves.
