Summary

What if you had the reflexes of an elite assassin...and nothing else?

Dante Jacoby is a slave to the trappings of the modern world. Twenty-six years old and hopelessly addicted to booze, cigarettes, and procrastination, he’s squandered every ounce of his potential. His corporate raider father, Dorian, reaches the end of his tether and cuts Dante off as heir to the Jacoby family fortune. His mother, Fiona, is smarter than her husband: she hasn’t spoken to Dante in months.

But Dante’s no victim. He knows he brought this on himself. Dragged to the gym by a well-intentioned friend in a last-ditch attempt to get him in gear, Dante is used as a guinea pig for a new state-of-the-art machine. He couldn’t care less about “Flash Reflex Training,” but does what he’s told, and heads home to drink himself into oblivion.

Hours later he’s on the run, hunted ruthlessly by mercenaries, kept alive by a CIA spook who reveals he tested close to the fastest reaction speed on earth. Square in the crosshairs of foreign agents who don’t want the government utilising his genetic talents, he finds himself sucked into the brutal world of covert operations.

At least, that’s what he thinks. It doesn’t take long to stumble upon a deeper conspiracy and discover nothing is what it seemed…

Very interesting!!

Very interesting storyline! It starts out necessarily slow to develop the main character. This book provides a great base for, what is inevitably, going to be a great series… highly recommend it!

Twists

Starts slow like a coaster and flings you through amazing twists. Couldn’t stop the ride.

Wow… just wow!😃

I’ve listened to all of Matt Rogers books and loved all of them. Jason King and then the King and Slater series were fantastic reads but I’ve never been so excited to see how a character develops as I am for Dante Jacoby. To be honest I wasn’t sure how I felt about Dante in the beginning and wasn’t sure how the story could develop into something special and then it did just that and kept getting stronger.

I’ll be the first to buy the next in the series and all the rest of the King and Slater books as well. Thanks for such a fun read!! Awesome narration too 😃
