Vantage Point (Gray Ghost #4)Vantage Point by Amy McKinley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about trust. Hawk is the strong and silent member of the Grey Ghosts group. Remaining at home after a mission, he begins to be concerned when a neighbour keeps having arguments with her brother. Suspicious, he keeps watch as trouble brews and events unravel. When Stella’s life is put in danger, Hawk spurs into action. Can Hawk protect Stella from harms way before its too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Hawk strong and silent but caring underneath or Stella standing up for herself but still vulnerable underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the troubled brother or the supportive Chris.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel with the soft colours like the blue and reds or the gentle greys and tans of Hawks apartment as a soft comfort against the fast paced action of the novel. Or the small detail in her grandmothers jewellery box and locket as something priceless and a treasure beautifully written.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of evenst and was easy to follow with names in the chapters. The reminiscences into Hawk’s past worked brilliantly to portray another side to Hawks character and didn’t disrupt from the narrative of the present. I also liked the change of setting from the jungle of the last novel to to the city of California. I also liked the mix of the CIA and a sense of a treasure quest which combined for a great read. Fast paced action and high stakes made for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.
