Jet – Ops Files is the prequel to the Jet series by Russell Blake and it chronicles how Israeli recruit Maya became Jet, a member of the Mossad on top secret missions.
The action starts early and continues throughout at a fast pace as Jet completes her training and becomes an agent. As well as being fast-paced, the action is gloriously over the top as Jet turns her hand to everything as an expert and she successfully takes on all-comers, regardless of the numerical disadvantage. The main mission in the novel sees Jet on an island against a large, well-armed force where she is initially back-up to a more senior agent, but soon has to take over. Jet unleashes chaos on the island, with large explosions all over the place. Whilst it might not be realistic, it is certainly a great read.
