To start off, this is not YA and a few of the parts were definitely R rated. That said, I still am enjoying the thriller series. The descriptions are balanced without the author being too verbose but giving just enough detail to give you a clear image. To me the ending was a bit rushed and I would have liked to see the main character having done a little more planning before diving in front of the bullets. Still feeling like this series at least inspired Alex Cross / James Patterson.
