On another note, Mr. Morrell gives the reader a pretty good inside look at the Protective Services industry today. A burgeoning business, the personal security trade is rapidly expanding with a multitude of former Special Forces Operators seeking to ply their special training skills. As Mr. Morrell dramatically shows, not all these operators are on the side of good as many have slipped into the dark world of killers for hire.
Thus the escalating need for more and more protective services companies to protect their charges from fellow special operators gone bad. No gratuitous sex, language or violence.

Lots of actions with plenty of violence but all germane to the face paced storyline. Character development was OK concerning the two protagonists but weak concerning the rest of the characters. In particular, Mr. There was a lot of potential there that went undeveloped. In the end I can only give The Naked Edge 4 stars. I found it was just too easy to stop reading in the middle of a chapter rather than continuing to the end when I put down the book at the end of the day.

About the author
With the release of "Naked Edge" as a Kindle exclusive, Mr. Morrell has accomplished a few things: he has embraced the e-book technology, he has brought back a familiar character from a previous novel for a new adventure, and he has proved yet again that he remains at the top of his game as a writer.
Morrell's work would not really need to know what happened in "The Protector" to jump right into this novel. As the story opens, we find Cavanaugh retired and living in a remote part of Wyoming with his wife. Morrell doesn't waste any time letting the reader get settled in for a bucolic, relaxing tale.
Instead, the reader is rocketed into a breakneck pace, as Cavanaugh and his wife are brought back into the Global Protective Services fold, ambushed by an unknown party, and are trying to stay alive long enough to figure out who their pursuers are - all while other protective agents are being killed all around the country. We come to learn that Cavanaugh's adversary is an old childhood friend, Delta Force colleague, and disgraced protective agent. This former friend means to seek vengance on Cavanaugh for reasons unknown to both he and the reader, as Mr.
Morrell skillfully avoids telegraphing that and what is to come, which heightens the suspense and keeps the reader guessing as much as the protagonist. In The Naked Edge , Morrell has succeeded in creating a page-turning, thumb-sucking, keep-you-on-edge thriller. But the best part of the book, in my opinion, was his creation of Bowie—a murderous sociopath, but a character so interesting and compelling you can't help but sympathize with him, even like him.
The Naked Edge is another winner from the creator of Rambo. Jan 02, Walter added it Recommends it for: Fans of Morrell's earlier work. With The Naked Edge Morrell brings back a character and plot that reminds the reader of his earlier work. Too often in thrillers we are confronted with protagonists having fully developed skillsets without insight into how they got there.
I have to admit, in books or movies I am a sucker for a training scene. In The Naked Edge Morrell returns to this type of storytelling, giving the reader insight in to how the characters became who they are. Overall, Cavanaugh is an interesting protagonist.
Morrell also shows mastery of craft in that he keeps the story narrow and focused without introducing too many unweildy subplots. If you like vintage Morrell, you will not be disappointed in The Naked Edge. Mar 12, Mike rated it really liked it.

The Naked Edge – Book Review
Morrell does his research here,from protector's tradecraft skills to history of knifes and blades,wich I found suprisingly interesting. One minor flaw concernes Italy they use Euro not Lira. Despite it's shortcomings,Naked Edge shows a writer who is second to none when it comes to pacing a narrative.
