I was wrong. It is a brilliant novel. So good in fact I pre-ordered this second book, The Angry Sea. I was not disapointed with this one either.
James Deegan writes not only with the voice of experience but with an eye for detail which puts you, the reader, right in the midst of the story. His word pictures of the North African desert, Whitehall and everything between are superb. His depiction of the actions of his characters is on a par with Len Deighton and John Le Carre. When they stop writing we will always have James Deegan.
This is not simply a re-write of the experiences of a very experienced soldier in the British army, it is a novel based in today's world. Extremely well written and gripping from start to finish.
I have spent the entire GDP of Pakistan in ink toners and I have made a killing .
your books have made me so rich I have the best take away in karachi high street with another branch opening in downtown lahore.
I know you a rich man and it's very unlikely you will ever visit Pakistan again but could you please please put out a our for Chacha Khan's chapli kebabs.
if you ever do visit lahore or Islamabad please let me know so I can arrange a photo copy signing for the books.
back to the review of the books, your books bring everything to life, it's written in such a style it bring tears tof my eyes. I cannot believe you mentioned my home country in the book, if you had written Pakistan one more time I would have made your the next pakistani tourism minister.
let's just say the books are the sheep's testicles of an a brilliant adventure and a fantastic and engrossing series.
Mr deegan I noticed you hinted the books could in sha Allah be turned into films, as a enterprising PakistanI, could I own the rights and takings in pakistan as a kind jesters of writing a positive review?
Mr deegan, jaldi jaldi write the 3rd book please.
The Hereford hooligans go by Speed Aggression Surprise and that's exactly what you get with this author's writing. Solid story, plenty of descriptive action sequences and minimum waffle.
Reading The Angry Sea reminded me of tabbing; when you're speed marching in kit your body is desperate to break into a run because you're going at an unnatural speed but when you've been running your body is desperate to slow down. When you do slow down you're back to the unnatural speed and wanting to break back into a run .... and repeat - for 10 miles. That's what this book is like. The bits in between the action are still so fast paced it leads straight back into more action which makes the story so relentless.
Another great story in another great book from a great man who obviously knows his onions from time served in Gungy Three to the Mighty D. Give him a follow on Twitter, he's extremely approachable whilst still retaining utmost respect and OPSEC for his former employers and THAT cap badge.
I'm now back to digging in and stagging on, waiting for his 3rd book. Roll on 2020
This story is absolutely top drawer. It’s written by a man who is still current with modern battlefield technology. JD has taking all his previous experience and knowledge from his service in the UKSF, and used it masterfully to help catapult the reader into believing that they are actually there. The book is fast paced and all the little tentacles that the writer has mentioned, soon come together and deliver an excellent plot.
Overall, this book and author are outstanding.
A gripping well paced tale which smacks of realism and includes scenes which are clearly inspired by real events and emotions in the author’s life. Detail like the trajectory of a round inside the body comes from someone who knows these things for real, the emotions experienced during and after a contact are told with striking realism that some of the best authors who haven’t experienced these things can’t quite replicate.
It’s not just the authenticity of action scenes but the plotting of the story which is also superb. A great read which had me laughing and having a little lip wobble at one point too.
Can’t wait for John Carr book 3
The Angry Sea story line is right up to date in its context, pacey and with more than sufficient action and intrigue to keep the pages turning and the reader's undivided interest.
I would certainly recommend this book as warranting five stars and will be eagerly awaiting the next offering from James Deegan.
in the meantime I can only hope that these books are turned into films or a major TV series as they have blockbuster written all over them
Characters are just enough tough guy, with some humour thrown on to make them likeable, the bad guys are just that, bad. Liberal minded people won't like the book whatsoever, too much direct action and little desire to please the masses, just get the job done, keep themselves safe and sod anyone else
I do recommend you first read "Once a Pilgrim" SAS action packed thriller. If you read that one first, you get to know the main characters in follow up "The Angry Sea". Both great stories.
