Book Review: The Organization by Allan Leverone

OrganizationThe Organization is a solid thriller, cleverly weaving seemingly separate narratives into one grand finale. Jack Sheridan, a former Black Ops soldier, now works for an off-the-book organization as a hired assassin, but his targets are the guys that need to be taken out. Diving into the heart of Las Vegas’ mafia, as well as encountering a struggling woman fleeing a psychotic stalker, Sheridan has to break the rules of his organization in order to save this girl while carrying out his assignment.

Leverone does a great job with characterization, bringing the different backgrounds of these individuals into the forefront of the story. I would have liked to see more from this mysterious Organization, though the ending sets up great potential for a sequel.

The author comments that this novel is a tribute to the pulp fiction novels he read in his youth, but this is no fan fiction — it’s a solid entry into a genre that needs to be revived. Looking forward to the sequel.
