    The First Lady being kidnapped was something that intrigued me from the start, until Jonathan Grave and his team reveal something almost fraudulent about her Her son and grandson are then later kidnapped, enter 2 zealous reporters who find themselves involved , with no choice but to assist Jonathan and his team with the rescue I have to say, the story itself was unorthodox in such a way that I had trouble with my eyes I couldn t resist rolling my eyes every time the First Lady was mentioned THIS would never happen in real life, not by any stretch of the imagination, period However, I did enjoy the plot and the rescue, even the setting, in Canada, an island of sorts with a newly built prison in the middle This particular paperback had a nice surprise at the ending A short short story, about young Jonathan and his father at the academy Jonathan was attending and an altercation with the headmaster I fell in love with the dad right then I think I actually enjoyed the short story better than the novel about the First Lady eye roll See My eyes have a problem chuckling

    Won Through a Goodreads Giveaway John Gilstrap has been on my radar for a long time because fellow readers have suggested that since I like high octane espionage thrillers, he should not be overlooked Suffice it to say, these recommendations were true to form and I am than thankful to whatever system found me suitable for winning this giveaway of John Gilstrap s High Treason.High Treason is the 5th book in the Jonathan Grave series Jonathan Grave and his team are who you send when someone is taken hostage and their return is of the highest importance Grave is a former Special Forces officer and specialist in security turned Hostage rescue specialist His team does whatever it takes to return their PC precious cargo to saftety Enter his latest assignment.Because of the sensitivity of the situation, Grave and his team are called in to find the FLOTUS The FBI director Irene Rivers, an old friend and sometimes employer, inducts them into the search for the First Lady Because, news of her kidnapping could destabilize the already weak economy and also cause some other secrets to be found out, this situation must be neutralized ASAP Hesitantly, Grave agrees to find the FLOTUS High Treason barely allows the readers time to blink let alone allow it s characters breathe before they are on to the next situation This approach is precisely why I love the brain candy that are thrillers The focus on action helps to mask the fact that there is a very thin storyline accompanied by even thinner characters I don t mean that as a diss, sincerely It s why movies of this same formula make less than stellar actors A listers It sells and I m buying.In some cases I feel like I haven t missed anything when starting a series anywhere except at the beginning Reading No Mercy, at least, would have seemed benefitting because I have a lot of questions still Why is our hero so rich Who is this man Where did he come from Why s he so great at giving speeches I mean, these speeches entice people who have never handled guns to find the inner ability to thwart mercenaries and thugs I mean, who is this badass that is Jonathan Grave Ultimately, I did enjoy reading High Treason by John Gilstrap and plan on reading There s plenty of action, suspense, guns, and reasons for conspiracy theorists to always have new material This political thriller should not be missed by fans of this series Now I wonder who s out there making sure the secrets at the highest level of government stay just that, secret.

    When you pick up a John Gilstrap novel one thing is always true, you are going to be entertained at a high rate of speed John s latest book, High Treason starts off not with a bang but with an explosion In true Gilstrap form, the reader is instantly immersed in action that doesn t stop until the last word When the First Lady of the United States, Anna Darmond is kidnapped, the tension begins to build when it looks and like an inside job Jonathan Grave is then thrust into an impossible situation having to know who he can trust and how high up the crime link goes This is the fifth book in the Jonathan Grave series and very possibly the best Putting John Gilstrap s High Treason on your reading list is a must for every thriller fan Reviewed by John Raab for Suspense Magazine

    Really You know when you read books that most of this stuff could never happen but you go along with the story This one was just unbelievable for me Just couldn t straight my imagination that far.

    This is a great series and whilst the 5th book was not as great as previous ones, it still managed to draw me in.I am totally engaged with the characters Jonathan Grave aka Scorpion is totally endearing..super tough alpha male with a heart and Brian Van de Meulebroeke known as Boxers.hell, his credo kill and ask questions later So, here we have the team called in by their good secret friend, Irene Rivers, head of FBI aka Wolverine to find the First Lady who has disappeared and feared being kidnapped by some really bad people The plot seems a bit far fetched at times.a First Lady who happens to have some dark past like she was a Russian terrorist in her youth and voila is now at the White House Yes.it s true okay, it s fiction we re reading don t forget Witty dialogue, great characters even if they seem not so real..Who cares.I like them.So, onto the next adventure with these guys

    I love Jonathan Grave and his crew, but this book had me shaking my head The only reason it gets 3 stars in my books is that the action scenes and the actual hostage rescue are simply awesome Apart from that, it s lame o The unbelievable factor is a 10 The whole back story is just ridiculous, and then to hit us with the FIRST LADY as accompanying them on their mission well at that point, I almost stopped reading As well, there are several important characters missing, although I did enjoy spending time with Boxers Irene Rivers is prominent and her actions are also just too unbelievable even in a novel you should have SOME relation to how the FBI and U.S government work When you depart as much as Gilstrap did in this book, that fact becomes a constant irritant Gilstrap is a great writer I love him He should just try to make these books less political and stick with telling a good story.

    The first half of the book was wild and the implausibility high, but fun.Then for some reason the author did a 90 degree turn and be used his formulaic thriller methods to finish out the story The story was almost silly Mentioned were shooting down a passenger airliner but nothing else and fight with the Russians A pot boiler that forgot to be edited and well developed Although I do like John Gilstrap s writings hopefully, his next novel will be cogent it was like reading two unrelated novellas as one book In the present environment having a first lady that was a former terrorist not a spoiler disclosed early in book seemed to border on asinine.

    3.5 stars, mostly because I love the series I look forward eagerly to every new installment of Jonathan Digger Grave, but High Treason was a rare misstep for John Gilstrap Not because there wasn t plenty of action, because there was, but first of all, because the story rests on such an unlikely and unbelievable premise that it taints everything that comes after And second, because I m with Big Guy on this one, Digger compromises operational security to such an extent that it s hard to believe this is the Dig we ve all come to know and love.Again, I love this series and recommend it highly This particular book just doesn t reflect the overall excellence of the series.

    Weakest book of this series by far The main characters continue to delight, but the plot was too far fetched FLOTUS First Lady is out at a nightclub her Secret Service detail is gunned down and nobody knows what happened to her Wolverine Irene Rivers and the White House Chief of Staff do not know who to trust Enter Jonathan Grave, Boxers, Venice FLOTUS joins them to rescue her family from a well defended island stronghold Her background story and persona is simply ridiculous I really hope the next book is better.

    I ve enjoyed the previous Jonathan Grave novels, but his one didn t quite measure up to the previous efforts Reading some of the other reviews, after reading the book, I see I am not the only reader that felt that way Hopefully End Game, the next Jonathan Grave novel due out next month, will not have such an over the top plot line Just have to wait and see where Gilstrap takes the character.
