Catching up…I’ve read a number of Suzanne Brockmann’s books, including at least a dozen in the Seal Team Sixteen/Troubleshooters series. I had thought of the message in her books as “anvilicious.” I thought it very accurate that she said she hammered her message home with a sledgehammer.
I found it very interesting how Ms. Brockmann carefully planned how to introduce Jules and then gradually reveal aspects of his personal life, to keep her “mainstream” readers reading along. He is indeed a beloved character.
Ms. Brockmann is very good at handling multiple viewpoints, which is essential for the Troubleshooter books, with their vivid secondary characters. I stalled out on some of the later books where she has the viewpoint of a serial killer in there. That’s a point of view I don’t want to read. Other readers may not mind it.
I was happy to hear that Jules and Robin will be appearing again here and there. I like the couple.
