    1. Kennedy is an aviation security specialist and a virtuous man facing an evil terrorist, virtually single handedly This felt like a thriller cobbled together from other thrillers in which a clandestine team of experts is brought together to save the world There was never any doubt how it would end My primary disappointment was that this book didn t show the creativity, snark and wit of the author s John Lago books It was slow to get started, and once the plot finally kicked in, around the tenth c [...]

    2. This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader Like most of his business trips, the only sights he d be taking in were those of Duty Free, Wok n Roll, Dunkin Donuts, and all the other apostrophic, postapocalyptic airport landmarks he vagabonded past countless times a year.People often made envious remarks about his business travel, not realizing that the homogeneous scenery endemic to virtually every airport in the United States made on susceptible to what Kennedy half jokingly called Term [...]

    3. The Asset is a novel centred around large scale terrorism There are whispers of an attack and after 9 11, the US are highly focused on quick and effective counter terrorism tactics Shane Kaun has given us a realistic vision of today s airline security from technology to human behaviour The Asset is thrilling, action packed and filled to the brim with risk and espionage Kaun also uses thoughtful and meaningful plot points to craft a story about a man who wants to protect his country and the memor [...]

    5. I loved Shane Kuhn s refreshingly cool take on the hitman thriller, The Intern s Handbook as well as its novella prequel, Casual Friday , starring the super cool, but not completely perfect John Lago Even the cover art for that book was pretty amazing Kuhn has put John Lago on I hope only a temporary hold for a while after publishing the Lago sequel, Hostile Takeover, in the summer of 2015 The protagonist of The Asset is TSA private consultant Kennedy I don t recall seeing his first name as only [...]

    6. Impossible action, poorly writtenGah TV show action sequences, written with the tension of a wet noodle Idiotic, improbable, situations, unexplained plot holes, and our heroes surviving a nuclear explosion by diving in the water are a few of the problems in this novel How much did the agent have to pay the acquisitions editor to get this one through the door

    8. THE ASSET by Shane Kuhn is action packed, high stakes thriller that keeps the reader on their toes until the very end It s the story of Kennedy, private airport security contractor, who is recruited by a CIA ghost operation to help solve the latest airport threat to the United States Kennedy, whose desire to protect the world from terrorism stems from his sister s death and a strong urge to help his fellow man, dives into the opportunity to save the country but everything might not be exactly wh [...]

    9. I received a free copy from NetGalley for my honest review I was already aware that Shane Kuhn could write a good book, I read the first of the John Lago series The Interns Handbook How To Kill Your Boss and liked it.I read the blurb for The Asset and to be totally truthful I was a bit worried that these characters wouldn t be able to compare to the ones from the John Lago series.But happily I was proven wrong, the cast here is as varied and diverse as you could get, there s enough twists and tu [...]

    10. This is not a book you want to read while traveling on a plane However, it is most definitely a book to read in a hammock or at the beach Shane Kuhn has done his research on air travel safety and it shows As a result, there s a certain brutal honesty here about the perils of flying Kuhn is not trying to scare anyone, but if you seen any of the stories about misguided TSA agents, you know he s telling the truth There s plenty of action as Kennedy, a contractor for airport security, is recruited b [...]

    11. The Asset is a well crafted, enjoyable thriller, better than expected I would not recommend reading while traveling, as the plot focuses on domestic terrorism at airports It all feels very timely for today s security concerns Some suspension of disbelief is certainly required, but the fast pace and clever plotting made this an exciting tale The lead character was savvy and likeable Very different from Kuhn s previous Intern s Handbook series, for the better I hope he will write books like this [...]

    12. If you can suspend belief that a consultant for TSA and HLS joined up with a childhood friend on her way to becoming a popular singer can prevent a major international terrorist plot against the United States, then this is the book for you There is a lot of action, a body count too high to list and a little romance thrown in to make even skeptics like me want to find out what happens next I enjoyed his previous book The Intern s Handbook so I am sure I will read of his books in the future.

    13. I really enjoyed the Interns Handbook but this book just went too far for me It s well written and some might find it to be a good thriller but it was just implausible for me Thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC I d like to see Kuhn calm down and write something realistic because I think he s got a good sense of plot and timing.

    16. All reviews can be found on my blog at thewritinggarnet.wordpressI admit, I am one those readers who decides to judge a book by its cover instead of reading the blurb Before you start thinking that I am a rather judgemental reader let me explain I m not much , I just refuse to read a blurb and get told way too much before I have even read the novel When I opened the package containing The Asset , straight away the cover had a lot riding on it, especially seeing as I had never heard of the author [...]

    17. The Asset by Shane Kuhn is a fun read for readers who do not demand action and reaction fully grounded in realism and credulity It is filled with plot twists and turns that keep the reader guessing which provides entertainment The basic plot is very interesting and timely based upon international terrorism and airport security issues, procedures and fears While the basic plot is believable and well paced by the author, the actions and abilities of the protagonist Kennedy stretch the limits of pl [...]

    18. I won an ARC copy of this book off.I have read and loved Shane Kuhn s first 2 books, so I was beyond excited when I saw he had written a third book And when I won it off , I felt like I had won the lottery At first I was disappointed because I was not liking the book to be honest The Asset is much serious and realistic than Kuhn s first 2 books I had to keep telling myself that this book is different from the others, and is a standalone book, not part of the John Lago series But I was forcing m [...]

    19. Remember, one man s off the cuff summary may be a sensitive reader s spoiler.This is fluff, but very fun fluff Kuhn uses the same saucy sense of humor here as he did in The Intern s Handbook But I liked Intern s Handbook better than I did this Kennedy is the main character in this breezy thriller, which is set mostly in the USA He s a security expert for TSA, but is recruited to a strike force involving the CIA whose mission is to stop a world class terrorist from decimating the States.There s h [...]

    20. This book has its moments as a thriller just not enough to kick it over the point of really good thriller True, a surprise ending but not enough character development and too much jumping from scene to scene, all in sequence, but no realistic transitions Its almost like the story needs commercial breaks to make it flow better Maybe OK for a TV movie that is built to occupy the time between commercials, someone s got to pay the bills, but not a book.

    22. It was a fun read Well, Kennedy wasn t as much fun as John was Kennedy felt like a cautious guy, and I can relate to that I love how it all is so real and exciting, but scary too I mean if the story plot were to be something that were to really happen, oh my, what a mess I kinda did see the twist coming but was still surprised by it too I did have fun reading this.

    23. Highly unbelievable and highly enjoyable This action adventure starts off slowly, but ratchets up with tension and plot twists Testosterone fueled tale of fighting a terrorism plot is ripe for the movie screen 4 for plot, 3 for writing, 2 for plausibility.

    24. The Asset was a fun easy read I enjoyed a different spin on the usual foil the terrorist plot device The characters drew me in, and the story line was unique enough to keep me guessing Three stars instead of four because the voice was uneven, but I look forward to Shane Kuhn s next book.

    25. Despite being rather depressingly predictable in terms of relationships, I enjoyed reading this The action was interesting and the plot, although somewhat different to other works by the author, held me enough to finish.

    29. Setting believability aside, this was an interesting look at some of the focus after 9 11 and the people charged with airline safety The CIA, faced with seemingly a valid threat, bring in a TSA expert to assist with the bugging of several airports Under cover of upgrading the systems, Kennedy, who knows many TSA airport managers and staff, is recruited In uncovering the person in charge of the threat, they discover the magnitude of the damage that would result if the team of experts does not sto [...]

    30. I was a tad unimpressed by this new thriller about a private airport security contractor who takes on the unexpected role of a counterterrorist operative hoping to stop a massive attack on the U S I found it a little unbelievable that Kennedy, the contractor, takes to his CIA recruitment like a duck to water even outthinking agents who have been doing this type of thing for years However, this story does have redeeming qualities so when it looks like it is up to Kennedy to save the day the book [...]
