Hard Road is written for the conspiracy, suspense and action junkie with extra credit for its overt US patriotism. Protagonist Jon Reznick is an ex-US special forces operator who is now freelancing. His wife died on 9/11/2001 when their daughter was a baby. Reznick is raising his daughter with the help of his mother-in-law. I’ll definitely listen to the other novels in the Jon Reznick series.
