Hawkins Book Review – Jack Carr’s ‘Savage Son’: The Hunter is Now the Hunted

Savage Son
Savage Son by Jack Carr

Jack Carr released Savage Son April 14, 2020, and it represents the third action and suspense-packed book in a trilogy by the former real-life Navy SEAL.

The first two books—Terminal List and True Believer—first introduced the singular character James Reece, a SEAL team commander who finds himself forced to pursue and eliminate people stateside, and throughout the world, as a means of protecting innocents, as well as retribution.

Reece is a common man in that he fights the machine, and he lives his life based on ideals of law and order, of justice versus injustice. Yet he is simultaneously the most uncommon of men in that he risks his reputation, the possibility of imprisonment, and life itself, to uphold right over wrong and make evil men pay.

Carr catapulted Reece into the psyche of readers with the Terminal List, as they flipped pages to see how the SEAL would extricate himself from situations created by a bloated war machine that rewarded greedy, cowardly bureaucrats, but sacrificed men of honor. The reader’s connection with Reece only deepened through True Believer, and now Savage Son brings Reece’s personal battles into view on an entirely different stage and in settings that introduce readers to different aspect of Reece’s life experience and military training.

Savage Son presents a game of wits and warfare carried out by hardened warriors like Reece, versus warriors and mercenaries tied to an international crime figure with near-limitless resources. Family is at risk, and country, too, and only one man can save the day. His name is James Reece.
