Simon Monk: More Reacher than Bond…

7b926e02e99f5bb989f3b0c5ef27e84eI’m often asked if Simon Monk is an American James Bond. The simple answer: Hell no.  Fictional marvels like Auric Goldfinger don’t exist in a world like Monk’s. It’s a comparison of say, apples to fish, really. MI:6 employs agents, whereas American intelligence utilizes operators. that come from Delta Force and other special forces. They go in, take care of business and are out. Monk is retired Delta Force T1, decorated twice over for valor and recruited to Langley. He’s a practical guy with none of the swagger you’d find in a brit like Bond. A HK VP9 and Vendetta  Corsa knife are the tools he has to survive the world of radicalize jihadist, enemy states, and psychotic madmen  he operates in.

I love Bond. Simon Monk just isn’t him, but I think you’ll enjoy him still.
