Summary

Michael Sloan reinvents the story of the mysterious, former covert intelligence officer who helps desperate people who are in need of his unique and deadly skills. Robert McCall is a former covert operations officer for the CIA who tries to atone for past sins by offering, free of charge, his services as a troubleshooter (often literally), a protector, and an investigator. People in need find him through a newspaper ad: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer.” Aided by a group of sometimes-mysterious contacts (some of whom date back to his spying days), McCall traverses the streets of New York City, visiting justice upon those who prey upon the weak. In this novel, based on the 1980s television show, and timed to come out shortly before the feature film version starring Denzel Washington, McCall gets pulled into a battle against Russian drug lords and finds himself pitted against his most dangerous foe ever!

THE EQUALIZER is truly worthy of an AWARD!!

Would you listen to The Equalizer again? Why?

Oh yes! This was such a good book. Long (which I like), very detail orientated (but not overly with trivial filler), great characters and an Excellent lead in to a new series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Robert McAll. He has such a colorful history that would make a normal man bitter and hostile but he has turned his emotions to humanitarian characteristics with a twist.

What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

His performance was five star worthy.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed Michael Sloan's style if writing. I though it was very much in the style of Robert Ludlum. I thought the book kept the pace up with out any lulls. The story unfolds in present and flashbacks that are clearly defined and easily followed. I think the publishers intro to "The Equalizer" is a little misleading because that title doesn't come into play until the last chapter or three! The entire story leading up to the title is how Robert McAll gets to that point. Don't get me wrong, it's a Great Journey and certainly worth the read/listen and credit!

Fast & Fun

Like a good AA movie, The Equ. was fun to "watch." Excellent good guys, very creepy bad guys. Retired super spy/assassin refuses to blindly pass by when bullies are humiliating the defenseless. With a little help from his friends he tries to make a difference. Not an Academy Award winner, but most aren't and many that are have nothing really to commend. My cost-per-star-hour ratnig: 10, the best value per thrill. (Length of book / action • star rtg / expense... ;^)
EJMJ ~ I do not reveal any part of stories I recommend to my fam & friends.
