    Since I enjoyed J.B. Turner's Jon Reznick series, I jumped at the chance to get an Advance Reader's Copy of Requiem. It didn't measure up to my expectations. The pace was frenetic, the plot twisty, but the characters were quite flat. Nathan Stone and an actress flee across the Everglades and the Florida Keys from the nefarious secret group known as the Commission. The actress, Beatrice, has been unwittingly drawn into a Commission plot against Stone, which has marked her for death alongside him. Since I enjoyed J.B.

The actress, Beatrice, has been unwittingly drawn into a Commission plot against Stone, which has marked her for death alongside him. I might have been interested in their fate if Beatrice had been believable, but none of her actions rang true. Nor did the dialogue. First, it was repetitive; and second, there was so much of it! The two characters Nathan and Beatrice carried most of the action in the story, and most of their interaction was conversational. I lost count of the number of times they repeated the Very. Same. Argument. Island after Island. I'm a conspiracy-fiction junkie, but this one left me cold.

    This one did not keep my interest. Much of the dialogue seemed repetitive and the characters were not engaging. Stopped about half way through the book.

    I thought the Jon Reznik series was pretty good, so I went into this one really wanting to enjoy it. Alas, as other reviewers have stated, this book (and series) is extremely repetitive. Beatrice (the actress) is given absolutely no character development and bumbles through the story with the same complaints ad nauseum. Perhaps a little background on her would have provided a foundation as to why she was so frightened, or why she couldn't trust Stone, or why she hated those mosquitoes, or why she I thought the Jon Reznik series was pretty good, so I went into this one really wanting to enjoy it.

I was ready to throw her to the crocs and gators myself. If all her complaining was taken from the novel, there wouldn't be more than a scant few chapters of reading.

    Mr Black I have decided i don't like him but if course Me Turner is a very good author. With all the turns and switches he can make a book one you stay up all night. Read it. Read all his books. You will not be disappointed.

This time, Nathan Stone is thrown into the Everglades where humans are outnumbered by animals and people don’t thrive – but they just barely survive. He’s being followed and run down by his former employer and this time he’s brought someone along with him. Turner is able to show a slightly different side to Stone in Requiem with the girl from the bar at the intro of the story. She’s chosen for certain reasons and (I believe) because of those he ends up showing a little bit of a softer side. Of course, there is still all of the Bourne-like assassin skills that they taught him on display but it’s really nice to see Stone growing as a character. The whole book they were on the run and my heart was racing through the entire thing. I wasn’t sure how Stone was going to make it out alive. A few times I was pretty sure that it was it, but since Stone is a complete BA saves the day. I think that Jeffrey Kafer’s narration adds another layer to this already pretty awesome story. He is able to portray Stone in a way that doesn’t seem overbearing or overacting. He’s mostly unemotional but still feels if that makes sense. And Kafer is able to catch the subtleties. A couple of times when Stone was interacting with the actress Kafer would sigh as Stone would when exacerbated by the situation he was in. Overall, Requiem was another great story in the American Ghost series and another awesome thriller for my bookshelf.

    "Requiem (American Ghost No. 3)" starts in a bar when Nathan Stone meets a woman. Stone is an assassin who has broken ranks against his off-book government employers and remains in their sights. Author J.B. Turner created in Stone a sort of anti-hero. Stone is not a nice guy. He doesn't much care for anything beyond the safety of his sister and his own personal code.

Stone is an assassin who has broken ranks against his off-book government employers and remains in their sights. Author J.B. Turner created in Stone a sort of anti-hero. Stone is not a nice guy. He doesn't much care for anything beyond the safety of his sister and his own personal code. Turner starts the novel with Stone avoiding a trap. The woman isn't who she said she was. At that point, Turner turns on the steroid and amphetamine pills and doesn't stop. Stone must die, say his former handlers. He knows too much. Kill the woman, too, they say. Turner's introduction into the storyline of the woman shows a softer side of Stone. He's still hard core, and she thinks he'll kill her. But Stone senses something. He's fair. Those out to kill him deserve their fates, but collateral damage isn't cool. The woman doesn't trust the man she unknowingly was to help capture. She's a down-on-her-luck actress, thinking it was just a job. And it was. But the stakes were higher. Turner really impressed me with this novel, and American Ghost just keeps getting better. This was the best so far.

    I have enjoyed the development of the main character Nathan Stone. With each progressive book, you get to understand a little bit more about him. I find myself wondering if it is just pure luck, the way he is able to evade situations or if he really has an inherent ability to sense danger. In this book, The Commission is determined to make sure that Nathan Stone is gotten rid of permanently. Yet, they have place limitations on how the deed is to be done.

In this book, The Commission is determined to make sure that Nathan Stone is gotten rid of permanently. Yet, they have place limitations on how the deed is to be done. We find out a bit more about the commission, how it started and how high up the chain of command goes. I did feel that it failed a bit with the introduction of Catherine and her role in things. I felt that she was almost an un-necessarily character or at the very least too much was spotlighted on her and that part of the storyline remained under-developed before its conclusion. As far as I can tell, she is more of a 'fly-by' character who could have been addressed in a different manner. However, having said all that, I am enjoying this series and look forward to the next book.

Turner Nathan Stone - ex-CIA covert operative, KIA; secretly revived, a ghost, No. 1 one stone-cold assassin of a deep-state U.S. organization to kill enemies of the establishment; turned rogue, turned against his masters, did major damage and now is being hunted. Smartly takes a quiet spell, low-keyed, low profile, somewhere in Miami. Finds an opportunity for human interaction with a beautiful woman though normally a man with few words. Like a human being for once, instead of a stone-cold killer. Serene, almost romantic! Except - they're in the Everglades, the marshes, the gators, the snakes, the isolation, the darkness, fighting for survival. In the River of Grass. In the Florida Keys. Because somehow, he's been found, chased and hunted! He fights back! Non-stop action, fast-paced, unputdownable, entertaining quick read. The author is earning top-ratings in this genre!

    The plot is unoriginal and has been done better by others. In short a government trained (and employed) assassin finds himself hunted by his own people who need to silence him because he knows to much. 'Requium' is predictable, uninspired and ultimately forgettable. At times the plot strains one's credulity and the author's reliance on characters somehow magically knowing what their opponent is thinking is faintly ridiculous.

    "Slipping" This wasn't the best thriller I've read from this writer. There were elements that were crammed with the usual fast-paced action I've come to expect. There was a splash of intrigue as the Commission hierarchy began to clean house. The trouble was that by that time (40% of the way through) I was ready to murder Beatrice myself. I lost count of the number of times she asked Stone if he was going to kill her.

    So as a huge fan of J.B. Turner’s work, I had a bit of a struggle in the middle of the book. Good beginning and a great ending. It’s just that there is a main character who says a lot of the same stuff over and over again. It just doesn’t feel accurate with her character. Once you realize the situation you are in, you can accept it on a certain level, even if you don’t like it. So that type of repetitive complaining really slowed down the story for me. I almost... almost stopped reading the book So as a huge fan of J.B. Turner’s work, I had a bit of a struggle in the middle of the book. Good beginning and a great ending.

    Nathan Stone is awesome! Love Nathan Stone. Hated Beatrice! Can’t stand weak, whiny female characters. Think he should have left her behind immediately & taken care of business! Her entire character was annoying (i would have gladly shot her myself)Catherine (another weak female character) was so dumb it was difficult to imagine how she made it to the level she was supposed to be in the CIA. If women are really like her in our Fed Agencies our nation is in trouble! Please keep Nathan alone o Nathan Stone is awesome! Love Nathan Stone. Hated Beatrice!

    It was good. The prior three got five stars from me, but this one only four because bringing in the girl was a little ridiculous. Her whining the same thing over and over seemed more like filler than part of a great story. Nathan has always been fine on his own, and I get this writer is changing the character from being a cold blooded killer to a man who kills only to survive, but this girl was an unnecessary player. It's still worth the read though.

    I won this book in a giveaway. I enjoyed the story, but I had a difficult time relating to the characters and staying engaged. This is my first book in this series, and perhaps I just need to get to know Nathan Stone a little better. I found the story interesting and I got through this book really quickly, but for me the characters fell a bit short. Still a good action/conspiracy novel, and I wouldn't turn down an opportunity to read more of this series.

    Great start to this book, captured me right away. The story is very and mesmerizing using Nathan Stone as a hook to keep them alive. Boy what a ride it was. Turner is absolutely great at keeping you on the edge of your seat turning pages well into the night. I applaud his writing and his work, a super book. 5

    I like the character. He's growing as a person. But this particular book had a lot of repetitious dialogue that worked on your nerves after a while. I would actually give this book 3.5 stars because of that one issue. I will continue to read the series simply because I like the character though.

    CC1 Excellent follow-up to the other 2 books. I take it this leaves Rom for more books down the road. What Nathan did for Beatrice was excellent. Of course CIA washed there hands of everything that went down with the people disappearing. and starting over. 5 stars plus. Can't wait to find out what Nathan gets into next. Carl Clause

    Boring Full of unnecessary discussions, repetations which is totally irrelevent to the subject. His favourite word is fxxk which he uses at least 5 times on each page. It looks indecent and disgusting. Has he no manners?

    Not bad, wasn't my favorite. There seemed to be quite a few spots were I found myself stopping and thinking 'what, they wouldn't be doing this. Their suppose to be top tier spec ops'. But it still was a good read. Went very fast. Finished in a short sitting.

    Tracking an assassin isn't easy Nathan Stone has the Commission after him still. They want him dead. The Commission has the money and the operatives and the Agency but is enough to track down Stone?

    Great read Some books get a bit worn and thin on plot and entertainment the further into a series they are - not this one. The story is fresh and the sense of amoral drama in all sides to advance their causes is still strong and a real driving force in the story

    Unputdownable Nathan Stone is unstoppable in his quest for revenge on the commission. The good side of him, so rarely seen, shows through brightly. As you read through you really want the baddies to be "neutralised" and the innocents to come out of it alive and on top. Great read.

    The best! Read all of Turner's books and this one is the best. Great suspense with an ending that you did not expect! Can not wait for his next book!
