“Ethan Justice – Origins” by Simon Jenner is an exciting debut novel and the first in a series that will be a must read. It’s a fast paced thrill ride, filled with crazy villains and unlikely heroes. The writing is witty and concise.
John Smith is the 32 year-old son of wealthy parents and is disappointing them with his lack of ambition. His friend Bradshaw, a high-powered stock broker sets him up with Samantha, a newbie escort, then leaves him high and dry. When John goes to Bradshaw’s to get money to pay Samantha he finds him brutally murdered. And the adventure begins!
Samantha and John try to extract her from the grips of her pimp, who is planning to sell her to the Russians. Along the way they realize that they are being hunted by the man who killed Bradshaw because he believes they have what he is searching for. Add in a mismatched pair of international security/assassins and the action never stops.
I really enjoyed this novel and I will be looking forward to finding out what happens next to this pair.
