Book #3 - Smoker

416FBTXKQKL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Atticus is hired by Sentinal to protect a celebrity in Smoker. It's an easy gig and he gets a little slack. When there's an attempt to kill the person, and he finds out the principal is a decoy, he's upset because supposedly the person he killed is one of "The Ten".

This is where we meet them, and meet Drama. I've read about her in Critical Space, but here we find out more about her, and the situation. Atticus realizes this isn't right. The hit was sloppy and he's worried. The principal is someone testifying in a tobacco trial, and he must work with Sentinal to protect the person.

It's OK, not great. I think the Kodiak group gets too scared too quick. It feels a little unrealistic, but who knows. From the writing, things progress too fast. We also see Drama holding Kodiak hostage in his apartment, a scene mentioned in later books.

A good read, and one that fills in pieces of the story, but not great.
