Review: Our Justice

Posted by author on 11/5/2017 10:02:00 PM

Our Justice by John W. Howell, a thriller about a patriotic lawyer trying to thwart a rich and powerful terrorist, provides a mostly satisfying conclusion to the series.

Similar to the first two books, Howell writes book three with a concise and straightforward style, often overexplaining things. This largely works in the story's favor. The fact that the main protagonist, John Cannon, carefully thinks through everything becomes part of his personality and charm while aiding reader comprehension. The supporting cast is likeable, and I couldn't help but cheer for the do-gooder to finally achieve justice.

Unlike the first two books, book three suffers from a few minor plot holes (or at least from a few things left unexplained). Along those lines, I would've liked a little more falling action to wrap up the loose ends. I was also specifically disappointed that the antagonist's grand plan never materialized, and that the cool and deadly new technology the author reveals is never utilized in the plot.

State of the (Star) Union

Howdy, folks. It's been some time since I last posted...yeah, I know my posts often begin that way. Here's what's been going in the universe of this author.

Move and Writing Progress

Throughout the past six months or so, moving from Madison to San Diego has absorbed much of my time. Whether I was packing for the move, dealing with getting my duplex ready to rent out, coordinating shipping my stuff to California, driving west, searching for condos, moving into my temporary apartment, moving out of the temporary apartment, finally moving into my new condo, or fixing stuff in the new condo, suffice it to say that the move has kept me busy. And to top it off, I worked over forty hours a week in my day job as a software architect this summer. I tell you. When it rains, it pours. And then add the fact that San Diego offers its fair share of distractions.

Review: His Revenge

Posted by author on 7/23/2017 7:24:43 PM

His Revenge (John Cannon #2) by John W Howell was an enjoyable thriller that held my attention from beginning to end.

In the equally-riveting book one, My Grl, lawyer John Cannon gained recognition as a national hero by foiling a terrorist plot. Now in book two, John faces the consequences of his actions. The terrorists try to eliminate him for what he did and then use his status to further their agenda.

Howell writes with a very concise, matter-of-fact style. The prose and dialog are short and to the point, yet the author takes the time to thoroughly explain the reasoning behind what's happening. This approach makes for a very quick, easy, and satisfying read. That said, Howell will occasionally devote too much page space to minutia. For example, I don't need to know the step-by-step details of the main character's shower and bathroom routine. But I'll gladly skim over a few irrelevant side notes in exchange for comprehensive treatment of the important parts of the story.
