    This is my first A.J. Tata novel and I found it to be an excellent adventure albeit similar to many other military thrillers. The plot is great the characters are engaging and the writing is well done. I am going to go back and read the rest of the series in order ...

    Not bad. The story reminds me of Brad Taylor's books. The story is good but there are so many characters and so much going on that the plot sometimes get lost ...

    This was AJ Tata's best book yet. ...

    This was the first book I have read by AJ Tata and I am hooked! I was totally invested in the characters and the author had me guessing through most of book on a couple of pieces of intrigue and it was a really fun and thrilling story that has me eager to buy the previous books of the...

    Tony does it again -- he is quickl becoming as 'go to' as Lee Child, Daniel Silva, etc... A great read that makes you think about geopolitical developments in a new light... ...

    This was the first AJ Tata book that I?ve read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love the way he describes the mountain setting and Jake Mahegan is such a cool character to get to know. Some of the dialogue from the lesser characters was kind of silly and the ending could have been bett...

    AJ Tata has is starting to become a "must read" author to me. after reading "Besieged" last year, I was looking forward to reading his latest Jake Mahegan thriller "Direct Fire". Direct Fire did not disappoint. in fact, it makes me want to go find every other Jake Mahegan novel Tat...

    Another great one by AJ Tata. Best part was when the SBI agent I so disliked throughout the book was thrown across the room, and Jake says something like ? how many of you guys wanted to do that.? Classic ...

    Not only does AJ Tata write exciting action-novels, but he shows he can also write fascinating psychological studies. His super-hero Jake Mahegan works with a female Army Ranger Cassie Bagwell, along with his former teammates and General Savage to stop a terrorist plot. ...

    Direct Fire is a fly by the seat of your pants THRILLER!!!! While this is only my second novel I?ve read by A J, I?m a fan of his writing. I will seek out Mr. Tata for hours of reading enjoyment. Things are happening in America and across the globe. Are they connected? If so,...

    Unbelievable action and energy. Entwined plots and exhausting action. Well planned character's. Unusual but believable storylines. Want to read next book with this team. ...
