What is the Jon Reznick series about?
Written by former journalist J. B. Turner from Scotland, the Jon Reznick series is a thriller series about a renegade black ops specialist and his FBI colleague.
Jon Reznick is what is known as a “ghost.” He is a black-ops specialist who takes his orders from shadowy handlers, and his salary from the US government. When a mission didn’t turn out as planned, he had to save his own life and ended up helping FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein when it was not the troubles that find him.
