Things have finally settled down for Ben. He has a beautiful family and life is good. But when he is asked by his friend and mentor to help him with one last mission, which will take him to America, Ben knows he can’t refuse. As the blurb states, what could go wrong? Hmmmm I wonder….
I loved the plot for this one, its setting and how the New York mob, although not limited to, plays a role this time around. So many times I was on the edge of my seat with my heart racing as to how Ben was going to get through this one. How does he fare? Well you will just have to read this to find out!
The Watchman is another in the series that exceeded my expectations. Rob Parker expertly lifts the bar with each release and smashes it. The characters are always first class, the writing strong and peppered throughout with wit, always makes these books such an enjoyable entertaining reading experience and The Watchman is no exception. A great addition which I loved.

In my first encounter with Mr Bracken which I am well and truly kicking myself about, I went from Manchester to New York in a breath, possibly the last breath I took before I finished The Watchman. What happened between Bracken’s departure and return North West England was action packed and mind boggling with a wee bit of thought provocation thrown in for good measure.
I loved the excellent slight of hand from Parker. I won’t go into what but my presumptions were my down fall. The twists and turns woven into this book are brilliant. One of the biggest and speculated cover ups in US history brought in to the spotlight. Parker has thrown a hat of such plausibility to the conspiracy ring. Could it be true?! Well I for one am on board with believability.
I totally loved The Watchman! This is my first encounter with Ben Bracken despite owning the first four in the series. Parker is a multitalented writer – I’ve now read three of his books each distinctly different to the last. I definitely need get to know Mr Bracken better #handofficiallyslapped
Did you clock the tag line? (Remember to keep an eye on the exits at all times! Has Ben taught you nothing?!)
‘One last mission for an old friend.
What could go wrong?’
Oh, the irony – I full on snorted when I read that.
It wasn’t long before our beloved Ben was blooded, battered, and bruised once again… and I loved it!
*blows out breath*
I think my pulse and blood pressure have just about returned to normal after that high octane ride.
Unfortunately, due to the NDA imposed on my review I’m unable to provide any further details regarding Ben’s latest mission and exploits due to the impending threat of spoilers.
All I can say is this (clearance attained from the Powers-That-Be), if you love a good conspiracy theory you are in for a treat! Coz this is a doozy. I have it on very good authority (aka The Mommy) that my discovery of the details pertaining to said current mission could be heard at the other end of the house…
If there's a threat to the nation
And something smells funny
Who you gonna call?
