What does an ex-CIA agent do when he gets sacked, he opens an exclusive security company. Hired by governments to do their dirty work, he was respected by everyone, well that was until he met his children.
Michael Charon was good at what he did, although like most spies came across as cocky. He met his match with Olivia, who had bottled all her resentment for him and let him have it with both barrels. Following them as they go on their 1st mission, was just like a family outing. A dad with their stroppy teens. Whilst Olivia and Seth were twins they were completely opposites, but due to their background were very close.
Whilst Michael and family are the main characters, some of my favourite scenes involved some of the minor characters. Master Rōshi reminded me of a stoned-out Mister Miyagi and some of the comments towards Michael were hysterical.
As you follow them from the start of the investigation, you get drawn into much more than who killed the love of his life. There are twists through out and you could imagine this been made into a TV series. Whilst this is tagged Dark Comedy, I don’t think it is that dark, however the comedy moments will have you laughing. Thanks usually to Olivia’s smart mouth. This was a fast-paced thriller and with only 169 pages a quick read. Further books are out in the series, so you carry on with the happy family.
