Jenkins is known for his page-turning style, and this novel does not disappoint. The non-stop action drives the plot forward, but the focus on Jordans relationships with his friends and family also add interest and keep Jordan from seeming like a flat, two-dimensional figure. At times, details of the plot seem overly complicated, but the main storyline is intriguing and suspenseful. Flashbacks are integrated seamlessly into the present-day action, and they contribute to the development of unique, strong characters. Dialogue is snappy, and characters react to situations in realistic ways, using their own distinct voices.
At a deeper level, The Last Operative is about a man who has put his job as an NSA agent over his roles as father, nephew, friend, and child of God. Through some painful events, Jordan realizes his mistakes, and by the end of the book he has made a commitment to work on his relationship with his family. His spiritual life is not given such a neat, clear conclusion, but it is implied that as he learns how to love others, he will also learn to love God more. While the consequences of his mistakes arent minimized, grace is clearly evident, as it says in 1 John 1:7, If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
