Taken - Robert Crais 3.5 starsI always enjoy another outing with Cole and Pike, and this was no exception. However, the various time jumps and the huge number of people involved made this one hard to follow at times. It also felt a bit sloppy compared to others in the series. I could have done without the parts where Jack has to empty the buckets of human waste and wipe up the spills of same. I find that more unpleasant than blood and violence. I did like the story, but felt somewhat unsatisfied when I finished. I liked the introduction of the new badass character, Jon Stone. Looking forward to more from what will apparently now be a trio rather than a duo.
