I like and read a lot of different genres. But sometimes a book seems to have been written with a guy like me in mind. Bunker by Jay J. Falconer is exactly that kind of book. Bunker is my kind of protagonist, a U.S. military veteran who is not looking for trouble but certainly knows how to handle it if it rears its ugly head. The story is present day, but the scenario and the science are cutting edge which gives an almost sci-fi feel to the story sometimes. There are plenty of females in this story, but thank heavens they are far from the typical damsels in distress. I like this story. The bad guys are from a country I grew up thinking of as the enemy, and with a former KGB officer running that country now, this story seems like a tale that could very well happen.
The plot of Bunker is fast paced, exciting, and very well written. We hit the ground running and the action and the stakes just keep going higher and higher. This action is realistic enough and well written enough to satisfy a combat veteran and an avid reader. In other words, the plot and action scenes in Bunker are very good. Yet, if you were to ask me what the strongest attribute of this novel is, I would have to say it is the characters. They jump out at me. They are strong, they are independent, they fall short of what they should be sometimes, but, most of all, they are very believable.
