One Mistake Too Many.
Pain and Agony, #6.
By Michael Anderle.
My rating ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ out of five stars.

History is written by the victors, and the powerful rewrite the rules in their favor.

These are simple facts that the dysfunctional have decided to accept, if not embrace.

After all, what’s the point of fighting something as fundamental as gravity?

The end result is always a fall.

When it comes to Pain and Agony, conforming is just not an option.

Challenges to these age-old proverbs will be taken on as the powerful, shifting on top of the pile, seek to stamp out any nonconformity.

There’s nothing left for Pain and Agony to do but punch hard enough to bring it all down.

Agencies will tremble, dynasties will fall, and no matter what, there is going to be a hell of a fireworks display before all is said and done.

What’s the worst that can happen?

Well, Pain and Agony are still going quite strong although this book was not as good as the previous instalment in the series.

I have to say that I expected a wee bit more of a Pain and Agony rampage given that the story started off with the kidnapping of his dead partners 12 year old daughter. Sure, Pain was severely pissed off but still the story puttered on with less mayhem than I would have expected.

Actually, I was not to keen at all on the direction the story took with prison breaks and bringing back Havoc. At least, on the positive side, any further books involving that bitch seems to be excluded unless this turns into science fiction or fantasy.

Still, I do like Pain and Agony and rampage or no rampage there’s a lot of ass-kicking and trash talking going on. I also quite liked that cockney speaking Britt Marty that was introduced. I was quite sad when it became clear that he would not become a future part of the Pain and Agony show.

Anyway, overall I have quite enjoyed this series, with the exception of one book, and I am l now quite looking forward to see where Pain and Agony will go next now when the Havoc bitch is out of the picture. I really hope it will go in some other direction than this sister, aunt whatever arc that, in my opinion, has become a bit stale now.
