    One thought on “Brass Monkey”

    1. 3.5Has a lot of action and movement, which made for the quick read.This book has less Laura and Acton and is more political focused than #2. Here we saw the reunion with Acton of some characters from #1 - Reading, the Delta Team, and someone previously thought dead. Interesting to see how they put the past behind them and turned over a new leaf. I didn't like the Delta team much in #1 as they seemed more bad guys to me than heroes. I understand they were taking command from the crazy president ( [...]

    2. Good action book but entirely too much information about guns, flying vehicles and guy shit. Kennedy is an excellent writer.

    3. I was on the fence about giving this three or four stars.What decided me was the Delta Force team, because BD and his boys pretty much ran the show as far as I'm concerned, and you gotta love a man who lands on a private lawn with a military chopper, decked out in special forces gear, and rings the doorbell!Otherwise, however, there was a whole lot going on in this one, and the first 40% or so of the book don't even have Jams Acton in it - he's pretty much a spectator in his own show and seems t [...]

    4. This book series is very good. Sequel to the Protocol, in which James Acton returns. The story begins in the late 80s during the Cold War, when the Soviets cause a US plane to crash behind the iron curtain, equipped with a nuclear weapon. Rogue members of the Soviet army find and hide the device until present day, when they attempt to sell it to white supremacists in the middle of the Eqyptian. Laura Palmer, Acton's companion from the first novel, mistakenly witnesses this event while working on [...]

    5. Brass Monkey was an intense sequel with an intricate plot that made the reader think. By addressing current societal issues through the eyes of men with opposing viewpoints, J. Robert Kennedy brought a sense of humanity to each side of the aisle, putting a human face on unfamiliar ideas.My only complaint was that the main character from the first book, Professor Acton, was somewhat of an afterthought. After becoming invested in the life and trials of Acton, it was disappointing that he didn't pl [...]

    6. a brilliant sequel to the first book, however you can read this book without reading the 1st book (the protocol). a new story laid out in the same format as book 1, again the way past events/storyline is written doesnt do it for me, and the story is fabulous. it can be a very offensive book so you must read with an open mind. for me the storyline got a bit lost and lacked the detail it held in book 1. it followed the story of the nuclear missile but disnt quite get enough imaginatary descriptiin [...]

    7. This is the second book in the the James Acton series and I enjoyed it as well as the first book. It has a good plot and I like the main characters. If you are into action thrillers you might want to check out this series.

    8. Holds your attentionI can't wait to start the next book in the series! It was difficult to pause in my reading I was eager to find what happened next. I did not experience the need to skim through parts every page held my attention.

    9. The main character James Acton, plays an insignificant role on the story, a run of the mill thriller which struggles to keep one interested

    10. Good book. Liked the first one better but this is good to. I plan to read all in the series, plus reading the other series' by this author.

    11. Enjoyed Brass Monkey. Will read more of this series,but after reading something else. Don't like to just read one series continuously. It leads to boredom.

    12. This was another excellent book in the James Acton series. As always, fast-paced, great character development, and well-written. I rate this one 4.8 stars.
