Book Review: Rogue

**I won a free advance copy of this book from Goodreads First Reads in order to review it.**

DETAILS: Rogue by Mark Sullivan. SCHEDULED RELEASE: October 2, 2012. Crime thriller.

SUMMARY: When Robin Monarch gets fed up with the CIA he works for after a job that isn't what he was told it was, he walks away and becomes a mercenary.  But now he has the biggest job of his life and the stakes are higher than they've ever been.

PROS: This books is well-written and doesn't lag, which is important, I think, in this genre.  Mr. Sullivan's plot is unique as far as I know, which is hard to do in an international crime novel, because so many of the same plots have been done over and over.  I especially enjoyed the way the plot played out in the end of the book.  His main character of Robin Monarch had an interesting back story, which, again, is nice in a genre filled with formula characters.

CONS: Some of the action and some of the plot points at the beginning were a little cliche, but not over the top. 

BOTTOM LINE: This book is certainly enjoyable and while not what I would call outstanding, it is fun to read.  Four stars out of five.
