Sharp has family held as hostages to force him to kill

Zero Option - Chris Ryan

Sharp did the right thing to report incident.


Now the bad guys captured his son and girlfriend in exchange for a prisoner. 


The plan is good and realistic. It is not a one man mission but a coordinated teams for men trying to free a boy and a woman from the bad guys. 


The idea is not if he could kill the bad guys. There is not a lot of hatred but a much more pragmatic way to deal with a very bad situation. The professionalism of the main characters shine through in between the lines.  



Enjoyable if one like details on how operation is done.
