Paul Janson, a character first featured in Robert Ludlum's bestselling novel The Janson Directive, has a new goal: save the world, one operative, one mission, one redemption at a time.
Reformed from his days of covert-operations, Paul Janson has set a new mission for himself. Working in partnership with champion sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he rehabilitates disenchanted agents and helps them create new lives outside of the violent intelligence sector. These former operatives then form a network of support for Janson when it comes to his other job--Janson also takes on independent assignments. For a fee, he'll use his skills to resolve international crises. But only those actions that he believes contribute to the greater good of all.
Whether he's rescuing an American doctor from Somalian pirates, attacking militant thugs intent on murdering a West African public servant agitating for human rights, or hunting the money-lenders who capitalize on barbaric civil war, Janson stays honest with three simple rules: 1) No torture. 2) No civilian casualties. 3) No killing anyone who doesn't try to kill them. Yet with his commitment to doing what is right--while facing canny intelligence operatives, ruthless warlords, deep sea marauders, or brutal dictators--Janson finds that his most difficult task is figuring out if he's fighting for the good side.

fast read, interesting plot. Writing is mediocre but at least the female character is well developed and hot just a sexual side kick for Jason. I'd read more for entertainment value.

A fun read. I actually enjoyed the character Jessica Kinkaid more than Paul Janson.

Boring in the sense that nothing seems has already been used in previous and other books...

Excellent action and these characters are great together. Hopefully more with Janson. Up to date action thriller. A+ book.

So it's spy vs spy vs spy ....and so on. Our hero, Janson, is an interesting, smart & complex mercenary who tempers his work with a work ethic & rules (only kill really bad guys) in an attempt to atone for all the assassinations he did while in the service of american Black Ops, while using the money to rehab others like him. It's a fast paced international game with lots of bad guys & things that go boom. I think you have to be a fan of really detailed descriptions of bombs, fancy guns, jets & other cool toys to really enjoy this book but it's not a bad cat & mouse story.
