Review of ‘Bullet Catch’ by Scott Jenkins

Posted on

The ‘Krokodil’ is an efficient killing machine. When activated, he kills without feeling or mercy. But, on his final mission things go badly wrong when he encounters a small boy with a cape and wand and then the boy is killed by one of the agents with whom he’s working. Suddenly, the ‘Krokodil’ is ‘Adam,’ and he’s confused. He has to find his mother, Lena, to end the confusion.

It is with this chilling scene in Scott Jenkins’ Bullet Catch: Smoke & Dagger Book 1 that we’re plunged into the murky world of rival intelligence agencies and spies, intermixed with the world of magic performed by Nora and Mike Watson, the famous Watson Family, who also happen to be spies for the CIA.

Bodies start turning up in Berlin, and all indications point to the Watsons, until it looks like they, too, are targets of a mysterious group of assassins. But then, other killings occur which appear to be the work of a mad man, and the Berlin criminal police, especially Inspector Wilhelm Eberhardt, are challenged as they’ve never been challenged before.

This is a nail-biting thriller that will keep you guessing until the final page, and will have your mouth dry and your heart pounding with excitement. From back alley to backstage, the excitement is non-stop. A five-star offering that will have you salivating for the sequel.
