Montagnard continues the story of ex Navy SEAL JD Cordell as he tries to put together a new life with his trusty dog and a beautiful woman. But things go awry when his mother travels to Vietnam to search for her adopted brother who has gone missing in Ho Chi Minh City. JD’s mother is caught between two bitter rivals and their dangerous feud. This leaves JD with little choice but to intervene, with explosive results.
Montagnard has all the elements I look for in a good action adventure story. JD Cordell is capable enough, and it’s not a matter of if he can overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles in front of him, but how. This is where the novel really shines. JD Cordell is electrifying and easily holds readers interests. I really enjoyed the depth of JD’s character. D.C. Gilbert brings him to life through action and consequences drawn in blood throughout the pages.
Ho Chi Minh City is vividly painted and captures the exotic yet sleazy side of a historic city that is in flux. The action in this novel is relentless and well detailed. The tense story line reminds me of the movie Body of Lies or Jack Ryan. D.C. Gilbert effortlessly blends martial arts, weapons and military tactics that will thrill any military aficionado.
I enjoyed the threads of historical context, and consequences, sprinkled throughout the story as it relates to the Vietnam War and how the Americans pulled out so abruptly leaving so many allies hanging.
D.C. Gilbert has crafted a taught military action novel that explores humanity at it’s most vengeful. This is a thrilling novel that is elevated by intriguing characters in the midst of an exotic location that holds danger around any corner. A great continuation of the JD Cordell Action Series.
