Ex-SAS warrior and former private security consultant Major Hector Cross has enemies all over the world. None, however, as cruel, greedy, depraved, or self-serving as Johnny Congo. Congo murdered Cross's wife. She died giving birth to the light of his life a baby daughter.

As Congo was being transported to the place of his coming execution, he escaped leaving behind a scene of mass destruction and bloody corpses. How does a human decapitated head rolling down a rural road hit you? Turned me off but I have read this author before and knew that the thrilling parts were to come. And did they! Wow! Suspense that will have you holding your breath. Action to satisfy anyone. Some tenderness. Just when I thought the thrills were behind me, the pace picked up again to lead to a horrifying conclusion.

I do have one question. Where do authors find all these beautiful, ravishing, sexy, women? Is there not one plain girl able to vanquish the foe with a few quick karate chops? Or spy on someone without being uncovered? Or be an expert with all the new technology in the world today?

Moving on. When Predator goes on sale, get your copy right away or Hector Cross fans will surely diminish the stocks of this new thriller.
