The Protector Duncan Falconer. The Hijack Duncan Falconer. Falconer can really spin a yarn and I look forward to more adventures about this taciturn but deadly warrior. John Stratton, proper bloke, not just in it for the women.
Luck plays a big part for him! The series can be read in any order, perfect length and full of action like a bond movie. Have been putting off reading the 1st book for quite some time but finally couldn't resist. Falconers' writing gets better in subsequent books? Tell us what you think of the series.
Give your grade and comments. Stratton's job is to bring him out but soon realizes it wasn't a error on the agent's part that got him noticed but an informant inside MI The boredom soon comes to an end.
When they move to Los Angeles and are brutally gunned down, Stratton is determined to find out why and avenge their deaths. Forces are fighting to destroy it while others are determined to keep it going for different reasons. There is still plenty of room for improvement - and I can't see how this is compared positively to McNab - but for an action book it is what it is. May 21, Hamada Cena rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the 1st time to read a novel by Duncan Falconer.
But I'm certain it won't be the last. This book is truly amazing. I liked the way The Author dealing with the details and that drove me to read the novel as quickly as possible just to know how it ends. It's pretty similar to the scene between Vader and Luke in Star Wars.
Apr 25, Marna rated it liked it. Great read Love this series, lead role is compelling and deep. Can't wait to read the next one! Thank you Duran Falconer! Feb 20, Suresh Vijendran rated it it was amazing.
This book had just 3 primary characters and no deviation from them. Well written and enjoyed it. Aug 11, Bec rated it really liked it Shelves: The Hijack is my favourite of the Stratton novels so far, the plot was so engaging! Stratton is insane, but at the same time so restrained. There was also no slapped together romantic subplot in this novel, which is something I certainly appreciate.
The Hijack brought up the conflict between west vs east and the war on terror and mixed all these different players in an interesting combination. There was a Al Qaeda spy who helped save the day, which was kinda cool. Not simply Muslim bashing.
The w The Hijack is my favourite of the Stratton novels so far, the plot was so engaging! The way that Falconer approaches these stories is different to McNab or Ryan, as they are always sea and ocean based. There are more scenes involving boats and ships then aircraft.

It is interesting to see how the SBS operate. Feb 13, Fraser Cook rated it did not like it. What a massive disappointment! I loved this book right up until page when they introduce a psychic 'remote viewer' as if it's a real thing! Utterly destroying all credibility. This books is supposed to be exaggerated reality with action and Daring do.
I am happy to read fantasy and surreal books but not when it's supposed to be a reflection of the real world. I couldn't get passed the remote viewer. Tried to read in skipping the bits with him in it but gave up and angrily threw What a massive disappointment! Tried to read in skipping the bits with him in it but gave up and angrily threw the book in the bin unfinished.
A real waste of a good set start and a real waste of my time and money. May 28, ab rated it liked it. I don't think it was better than The Hostage, again, it wasn't a challenge of any sort, entertaining yes, but deserves a better review, because of all the subplots in this story. The story is better than the narration of it, like before, still loved the characters with their misery and talents, with their humor and secrets, with their human behaviour.

As for the remote viewing, which I can't give away, there's nothing, absolutely nothing wrong with bringing that into the mix,.. It actually made I don't think it was better than The Hostage, again, it wasn't a challenge of any sort, entertaining yes, but deserves a better review, because of all the subplots in this story. It actually made the story telling better, for it helped the characters to evolve. Stratton is back and in a much bigger role than in the first book.
From the start, the story twists and turns, but keeps you thoroughly intrigued as to where it is going. The introduction of "remote viewers" was really interesting, and the constant battle between Israel and Palestine features prominently. I'm really loving this series. The action scenes are tightly written and don't go on for too long, and the characters are well thought out and not stereotypical. Looking forward to reading the Stratton is back and in a much bigger role than in the first book.
Looking forward to reading the next one. Feb 05, Heidi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Duncan Falconer once again puts together a work that never stops moving forward.
