The Kill Zone (2003). About book: From the USA Today bestselling author of Joshua’s HammerThe President of the United States has appointed Kirk McGarvey interim director of the CIA while his nomination winds its way through Congressional hearings. Now, McGarvey is in the Kill Zone

Now, McGarvey is in the Kill Zone. He finds himself part of a plot that does know the Cold War is over, a plot that comes at McGarvey full throttle-from the grave of an enemy McGarvey had buried decades before. Step by inexorable step, the assassin-a sleeper agent for all these years-is awakened from a holding state of mind. Is there anyone McGarvey can trust when trust itself can kill him? At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Kill Zone is Hagberg's 9th Kirk McGarvey novel and my 2nd to read. This one has less 'edge of the seat' excitement (although there is still plenty of suspense) and more in depth study of the characters involved in McGarvey's life. McGarvey has been nominated by the President to become the Director of the CIA. That nomination is opposed by 2 powerful US Senators and, evidently, by some unknown Russians. In an earlier novel, McGarvey had assassinated a Russian general, and perhaps his followers The Kill Zone is Hagberg's 9th Kirk McGarvey novel and my 2nd to read. Towards the end of the book you will guess the person responsible but you have to read to make sure and to see how the author concludes the book. A grabbing, exciting read. I enj The Kill Zone is a good read, in fact a very good read. It will capture you because the plot is so interesting.

Gina Hagberg-Ballinger. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. -George Santayana. This book is for Lorrel and for our son, Kevin, whose imagination is second only to his kindness. Dr. Anatoli Nikolyev was an old man, and the summer heat was oppressive to him as he hauled his thin body up the dark narrow stairs. Now, McGarvey is in the Kill Zone.

I've read a bunch of David Hagberg's McGarvey books and loved them all. Until this one. The Kill Zone is simply awful, with none of the pizzazz and page-turning suspense that made the others so enjoyable.

In place of that, Hagberg has given us grass-growing, minute-by-minute excruciatingly detailed moments of angst, by McGarvey, his wife, his daughter, his weird computer-geek-guru friend Otto Rencke, Rencke's girlfriend Louise Horn, his staff--all to reach a climax that was both predictable and several bridges too far from the verisimilitude authors need in order to have the reader "willingly" suspend his or her belief.

Added to that, the book is mostly exposition and recapitulation, as if it were one huge book report by a not very talented college student writing a bad thesis. Also, lots of people die in this book--but although they were presumably loyal friends and employees, no one sheds a tear or even voices regret. In the end, it is all about McGarvey and family.

I stayed with the book until the very very end, hoping that it would have a spark that led me to it in the first place. Sadly, it did not. Ugh!

You may have noticed that I am in the distinct minority with my rating of this novel, but I call them like I see them and this is how I see this. I have loved the Kirk McGarvey novels by David Hagberg and I was really looking forward to this one. In this story, McGarvey has been nominated by the president to be head of the CIA (DCI). Some in the Senate Committee that hold hearings on his nomination are less than pleased with this turn of events, but someone else is even less enthusiastic and attempts are made on McGarvey's life as well as that of his wife, daughter and his trusted side kick Otto Rencke. It seems that long ago in Russia a plot was hatched to kill McGarvey if he was ever nominated to this position and trick is to find out who it is that is trying to kill him and how they are planning to do it. I found the plot to be very slow moving, the characters somewhat wooden and the whole story to be a huge disappointment. The mystery of who is trying to kill him doesn't turn out to be that much of a mystery either. I wish I could report otherwise, but that is how I see it.

CIA Directorate Kirk McGarvey must find out who is attempting to kill him and his family before it's too late! Could the secrets lie in the time he spent during the cold war as a field operative! David Hagberg delivers a gripping novel with an interesting conclusion!

Good from the beginning to the end
I have enjoyed lots of stories by David Hagberg (Sean Flannery).This one is about in the middle of the pack.But, still better than the works of many authors. It was slow getting into but definitely picked up good steam about half way thru. All in all..good..not great.
