I d rate this 3.5 stars.Full disclosure I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review Many thanks to NetGalley and Mulholland Books for making it available Matthew Quirk s third book, Cold Barrel Zero, almost literally begins with a bang.John Hayes was once an elite soldier in Special Operations He and his fellow soldiers were trained to infiltrate targets by completely immersing themselves in their midst, essentially becoming one of them They performe [...]

For years, I ve insisted that nobody can touch Stephen King for getting my full attention within the first few pages if you don t believe me, read the first chapter of Mr Mercedes Well now, Mr King has some serious serious competition In this one, author Matthew Quirk writes an absolute killer of an intro No doubt, I said to myself as I kept reading several chapters, I m gonna love this one.When I agreed to read it thanks to the offer from the publisher, via NetGalley, for the advance copy in e [...]

I read this novel which was almost 400 pages long in two sittings, which in itself speaks to how good of a thriller it was It was exciting from the first page to the last, with non stop action and interesting cast of characters The most interesting was unwilling protagonist Thomas Byrne, the field medic turned doctor that was pulled into the story by the government s need for help, due to his knowledge of a rogue agent that just committed a string of terror attacks The rogue black ops agent in q [...]

If you like your thrillers full of special forces lingo and action, this may be a good fit for you I wasn t too impressed at first, but warmed up to it Somewhat predictable, and even a bit lame at points, but a fairly good pace Nothing that I haven t seen before in the characterizations, though some information and action was new to me Seemed to me everyone got a cheek or ear injury My style might be LeCarre, but this wasn t bad for entertainment.

This book had short little sections that were great and looooong slogs where every character was so interchangeable, it was nearly impossible to keep straight who was who And frankly, after a time I gave up trying or even caring.

3.5 starsI normally enjoy novels where the POV changes throughout This one was a little confusing at times Some chapters took longer for the POV to become clear Plus, some of the characters are a little underdeveloped and underwhelming, so, when they were mentioned a second, third or even fourth time, I was like, now who was that guy and which side is he on LOL My take Overall though, an enjoyable read.

Hayes and his unit were black ops, knowledge of their operation would be disavowed if they were captured or killed When returning from a mission, they were ambushed Hayes saw the man behind it and recognized him as an ally of his ambitious Colonel Riggs Upon return to base, Hayes saw the same man killing massacring the civilian population Hayes fought back, tried to defend the civilians, but it was too late Riggs reported that it was Hayes and his men that turned, murdered the civilian populatio [...]

A rather strange way to begin a series.A troubled combat medic and his girlfriend are picked up by Homeland Security as bait for an elite soldier turned terrorist.This elite soldier immediately breaks the medic and his girlfriend out of their predicament, leaving the medic wondering who to trust and who the real villain is The thing is, the protagonist of the book is not the series character We used to see this in a few series, notably the Mr Moto series, but rarely in a series of this type.Lots [...]

I knew nothing about the author and accidentally stumbled upon this book I read another reviewer s critique of two books Orphan X Greg Hurwitz and Cold Barrel Zero Matthew Quirk And I made a mental note to purchase the former for reading However, I mistakenly purchased Cold Barrel Zero and decided to give it a read While it started off with an engaging hook, the book came off the tracks in Chapter 14 where Byrne had been stripped searched and now sat naked on a wooden dining chair Following whic [...]

This is the first book that I have read by Matthew Quirk and I really liked it It sounds as if it is much different than his first two books in content But, never the less, this is one good book Quirk s writing is lean and moves with a frenetic pace There are twists and turns and divided loyalties where at first you are really not sure who you should be rooting for The book concerns Thomas Byrne, a former combat medic who had been part of a deep cover Special Operations team led by John Hayes By [...]

I intended to just read a few chapters before I got down to the business of the day Yeah, right What business and what day Before I realized it the early morning had become late afternoon and the book was finished While the plot of the misunderstood elite fighting team desperately trying to come home is almost a cliche, this story moves so fast and covers such fertile ground that the reader never has enough time or reason to question the story And this story moves quickly, both the action and th [...]

This is probably the best of the Black Ops genre I have read Layers of deceit and conspiracies keep the characters and the reader guessing as non stop action prevails The story is realistic, but quite imaginative Some of the characters are recovering from deep hurts and obsessive guilt From time to time this clouds their judgment and leads to major problems It is hard to rave about this book without giving away to much Suffice it to say, you can t go wrong if you like well told, suspenseful thri [...]

This was a non stop action, suspense filled novel that keeps you guessing Both Hayes and Byrne are great characters It took a bit to get all the characters situated in my mind with the multiple POVs as I listened to the book I made a note of them and had to refer to it to remind myself of which group they belonged to There were quite a few great twists and I loved that I was kept guessing My errands ran longer than normal so I had time to listen Peter Coleman does a good job narrating I hope tha [...]

I once asked my daughter, who was nine years old at the time, the essential ingredient for a good book Nonstop action, she replied Cold Barrel Zero certainly qualifies This thriller kept me guessing until the very last scene Really liked the protagonist a doctor and former medic who specializes in trauma He gets swept up in an international plot as a result of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and, like the reader, spends half the book guessing who the real bad guys are No long set piec [...]

Pretty good book and right up my alley Seems I have another author to add to my list of writers to follow Matthew has a few other books and I think I will try out within the next month or so Both The 500 and Cold Barrel Zero are in my digital library Saves me a lot of.I enjoyed the characters, the action, and the plot It never slowed down enough to lose me and it seemed to go right along Would like to see most of these characters again.

I was kind of psyched for this great reviews, a hot item I actually checked it out twice before but brought it back before reading because the holds list was so long I m disappointed once again this is a solid two and a half star experience There are way too many characters who aren t super distinct from each other It makes it difficult to follow who s tailing whom or to follow along in rapid fire conversations There were some pretty gigantic assumptions and guesses early in the story, where a l [...]

This book got off to a very strong start The characters and plot were compelling the pacing was good This was maintained almost to the end But once the main threads of the story were brought to their conclusion, the book lost momentum and seemed to fall back on clich s and genre standards Women took their men back with no questions asked the bad guys got caught and the nuances of characters seemed to disappear The most glaring instance of this occurred when a chocolate Lab who was pretty clearly [...]

Although I really enjoyed The 500 and The Directive, and there s lots of action in this story, the whole terrorist plot and special operations tech gadgets were a bit much The heroes are those guys who survive above all odds, getting beaten to a pulp or shot, yet still manage to defeat the bad guys It read like a screenplay for a Van Damme or Seagal or Stallone movie.

Good book, although it did seem just a little too technical for me at times Have read 4 books by this author two each of two series and I m impressed with his ability to write well in two totally different genres.

Cold Barrel Zero was a little too slick for me Too many characters to track, too many unbelievable situations and injuries that the good guys walked away from, etc.Some sections I had to slog throughl in all just okay.

I was bugged by how often I heard that the main character was super charismatic and could convince anyone to join him, but it wasn t really shown Too much tell, not enough show.
