New Release and Review: ‘The Jackal’s Trick’ by John Jackson Miller

Tags: , ,

The Jackal’s Trick by John Jackson Miller is out today in paperback and digital formats. This is the second book in his Star Trek: Prey trilogy and it’s just as good as the first. Click here to read our full review.

Continuing the milestone 50th anniversary celebration of Star Trek—an epic new trilogy that stretches from the events of The Original Series movie The Search for Spock to The Next Generation!

The Klingon-Federation alliance is in peril as never before. Lord Korgh has seized control of the House of Kruge, executing a plot one hundred years in the making. The Klingon cult known as the Unsung rampages across the stars, striking from the shadows in their cloaked Birds-of-Prey. And the mysterious figure known as Buxtus Cross launches a scheme that will transform the Klingon Empire forever.

Into danger flies Admiral William T. Riker and the USS Titan, charged with protecting the peace forged nearly a century before during the Khitomer Accords. Aided by Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the USS Enterprise, Riker and his officers scour the stars, seeking to find the Unsung and uncover the truth behind the conspiracy before time runs out.

Yet even as Commander Worf departs on a deeply personal mission of honor, hidden sinister forces seek to turn the crisis to their advantage. And the conspirators’ plans threaten to spiral out of control, jeopardizing the very empire they aspire to rule.

Movie Review: ‘The Accountant’

October 21, 2016 at 5:18 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

If you like action movies with deep characters and an intellectual bent, then The Accountant is worth checking out. Ben Affleck does a great job in this one tackling a role that brings awareness to autism in a very weird way. Rather than showing how people with autism can go on to live normal lives, The Accountant shows how they can be deadly assassins and super criminals. As tongue and cheek as that might sound, the movie really does have some great characters and tells a very entertaining story.

At the helm is director Gavin O’Connor who has done some tv work, but also did Jane Got a Gun which came out earlier this year. Through this film, he tells what could have easily been just another Hollywood action flick. Ben Affleck is an accountant who handles the books of some very notorious criminals, and as such, has to deal with the violent fallout that comes in the business. Rathern than being a typical bookworm, he’s full on Jason Bourne as he takes bad guys out in hand-to-hand combat or with an arsenal of weaponry. Yet this isn’t a film that’s about action and explosions. Instead, it builds characters and lays out a story with a couple layers to it. There are bursts of action in between long periods of character development. It’s not a movie that’s all out action. There’s also some jumping around in the timeline with flashbacks, but the movie does it very well so even when it jumps around, it does so rather seamlessly.
