"Take my word for it, James Reece is one rowdy motherf***er. Get ready!" (Chris Pratt, star of The Terminal List, coming to Amazon Prime)
"They’re great, man. They lock you in. They’re gripping." (Joe Rogan, on the Terminal List series)
The fourth thriller in the “so powerful, so pulse-pounding, so well-written” (Brad Thor, number one New York Times best-selling author) Terminal List series follows former Navy SEAL James Reece as he is entrusted with a top-secret CIA mission of retribution twenty years in the making.
It’s been 20 years since 9/11, two decades since the United States was attacked on home soil and set out to make the guilty pay with their lives. In the shadows, the enemy has been patient - learning, and adapting. And the enemy is ready to strike again.
A new president offers hope to a country weary of conflict. He’s a young, popular, self-made visionary…but he’s also a man with a secret.
Halfway across the globe a regional superpower struggles with sanctions imposed by the United States and her European allies, a country whose ancient religion spawned a group of ruthless assassins. Faced with internal dissent and extrajudicial targeted killings by the United States and Israel, the Supreme Leader puts a plan in motion to defeat the most powerful nation on earth.
Meanwhile, a young PhD student has gained access to a bioweapon thought to be confined to a classified military laboratory known only to a select number of officials. A second-generation agent, he has been assigned a mission that will bring his adopted homeland to its knees.
With Jack Carr’s signature “absolutely intense” (Chuck Norris) writing and “gripping authenticity” (The Real Book Spy), The Devil’s Hand is a riveting and timely thriller that will leave you gasping for breath.

a book like this that is written by someone who has lived the lifestyle makes the story feel so much more authentic!

This is still a great read, and the final third is truly action packed. I think as this was a much longer book, where as the previous 3 were shorter and faster, I assumed book 4, would be of of a similar pace, it is and even faster and smarter, but only at the final third, and it doest read the same as the others.
Read all four of these books, if you’re into smart and clever action books, you’ll love Reece/James, although I completely respect other reviewers.
Thank you and truly looking forward to the last in the series ( hopefully Mr Carr will further this series, but from what I’ve seen, it’ll be capped at 5.)
To make the plot work Reece had to be outside the house at the exact minute the bad guy exited. Then again at the lab/ house at exactly the same time the villain of the piece gets there. Then he has to be travelling with the one person who knows which drug to give the bad guy to stop him dying prematurely and ... I can’t go on. Too disappointed for words
But the earlier books held a premise of a good story, which is totally lost in this edition.
There is so much wrong here, from an editorial perspective, that it starts to read like a self-published political statement.
Basically, anyone who has served in the armed forces is worthy, anyone who has not is a fool. There is clearly some southern African tension that is unclear but drives the narrative in a way that is totally opaque.
The biggest problem, though, is one of agenda. Every page feels like you are being forced to listen to a diatribe that the author feels very strongly about. These include political views (ok - to a point), a *massive* amount of product placement, to the extent that you can feel the camera behind your shoulder, and a general feeling that the story is secondary to getting you bought into Carr's beliefs.
From a reader's perspective, the book suffers hugely from a lack of bold editing. Constant referral to previous novels, dirge-filled retrospection on the protagonist's concerns, and pointless dozens of pages wasted on backstory of soon-to-be-killed bit-part-actors shows a lack of bravery on the part of the editor.
Overall, a half decent story buried beneath an editorial team that seem terrified of upsetting their author.
