The Last Man by Vince Flynn

Jalalabad, Afghanistan

The four dead men were lined up on the living room floor of the safe house.

Another book that begins with violence and dead bodies. In this case as it's Afghanistan, I suppose that's all right? Anyway, four dead men sets off an investigation and a mystery begins to unfold which we can assume will have epic, international proportions.

Some of the names of characters are a little funny like Rapp and Rickman which make these characters seem like they are oozing testosterone. All in all, the opening scene of murdered bodies is dull, having been done to death in a billion other novels. At least I'm dull to them. But for some, violence and death hook, that's just how many modern brains are hardwired I guess.

Plus, there's a typo in that first paragraph which does not bode well.

First thing said:

Some swearing basically stating that all this death is all really, really bad.

Verdict: Fail
