Dan Roy Can Get Anything Done
3.25 out of 5 stars
Dan Roy is described as “a shade over six feet, two hundred and twenty pounds, with wide shoulders and biceps that strained the fabric of any shirt he wore…” so we know that he’s a bigger dude who is meant to be brawny and someone who seems to be able to “get things done”.
Hidden Agenda read a lot like a Jason Bourne book – things happened – and all of a sudden now they are looking for him instead of trying to get his help. He doesn’t know who to trust and may place his trust in the wrong person. There was a ton of intrigue and even a little romance is thrown in for good measure.
The first parts of the book didn’t instantly grab me. It took a little while for Bose to grab my attention and really drag me into Hidden Agenda. By the end he had me and I was glad that I’d stuck with it.
I believe this was my first book narrated by John McLain and it took me a little bit to get into it. Not because he doesn’t have a good voice – but it was definitely an aggressively “manly” voice. Anyone who reads any of my reviews knows that I like Kevin Pierce – and I think some would say that about him – but there was something in McLain’s voice that was almost overly-manly. The irony of my noticing that is that Dan Roy’s character fit his voice perfectly (or the other way around – however you want to spin that). So, in the end, I realized that McLain was perfect for the role.
Overall, a slow-paced beginning turned into a fast-paced ending book with lots to enjoy and a few things that bugged me. I think I’ll continue the series to see what other situations Roy is thrown into.
