Project Kratos: A Novel — Guarding the Homeland in the Service of our Nation by Vincent Saladin is a great read for fans of military and twistedly plotted action thrillers. Brian Hartley is an ex-Army Ranger and Private Investigator with enhanced abilities, a man with a receiver-transmitter device surgically implanted in his brain. He is enlisted to protect Paul Oakwood and his wife Katie. Paul is a computer wizard and his wife is a neurosurgeon. Soon Brian finds himself in the crosshairs of a terrorist group that is determined to blow up Washington DC. While protecting Paul and his wife, Brian becomes engulfed in a war he never asked for and he must deal with cutting-edge technology if he is to succeed. Can the skills he acquired in the past help as he gets enmeshed in the top-secret project code-named Kratos?
This novel can only be imagined and written by someone with military experience. It is fast-paced and features sophisticated characters. I was pulled in from the start of the novel; the author introduces the protagonist immediately and the reader is left in no doubt that so much is at stake, given the sophistication of Brian’s task and his personality. It is very clever, written in gorgeous prose, featuring descriptions that are strong and vivid. I enjoy writing that is propulsive and error-free and Vincent Saladin provides more than that — the author creates a protagonist that readers will love in the same way they love Lee Child’s Jack Reacher. Project Kratos is a satisfying read — period!
