Sunday Synopsis

The End (Owen Taylor #1)The End by James Patterson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Owen Taylor and his team are soldiers on a special, secret mission. If they fail, WWIII could result. Little do they know that the powers that assigned the mission also have betrayed them. Will they succeed, and will they make it out alive? Either way, this will be Owen's last mission.

Owen returns stateside, turns in his weapons, so he says, and retires to an idyllic home in a small town. The home does not stay idyllic for long. Owen doesn't fit in, and a group from town begins to harass him. He will eventually take matters in his own hand, but with a big twist.

This story was good until the climax. When Owen is at the peak of the mission, the scene cuts to a later time. At first I was completely lost. I had to go back and reread to make sure I hadn't skipped part of the book. What I would classify as major events are not included in the story. It does have a good ending, though.

The End is one of James Patterson's Book Shots, a novel that is quick and easy to read. This one is about a third the size of his other novels. I haven't decided yet if I like his co-author for this book, Brendan DuBois. Time will tell.
