Had potential but I find it difficult to read a book where the author appears to take great pleasure in detailing the death of an innocent or "good guy", describing the pain and detail of how the person was killed but when it comes to the "bad guy" the manner of death or in ths case torture, is missed out. He gets out his knife, cut, ( that's a directors cut) and move on to, he now has the information. In at least two areas nice people are killed in graphic detail while terrorists are simply killed off with little explanation . Sorry, I like my bad people to come to grizzly ends
The story is not bad an american turned terrorist who turns out not be american but holds a grudge against the USA. I bought this book to as it is said to be similar to the books of Vince Flynn and Daniel Silva, but the book does not hold my interest as the other authors do. Their characters Mitch Rapp & Gabriel Allon are much more likeable and charismatic. I might try one of this author's later books as a sample but it's not as gripping as I had hoped.
Brilliant read did feel it was a bit slow to start but I think that was more as its the first in a series and I have just finished reading a long series. But once all the characters came into play the twists and turns came too. If you love Brad Thor Lee Child Vince Flynn then a great series to start
I am a big fan of Brad Thor and found this book to match Thor for thrills and spills. Absolutely recommend this book to anyone who likes action based books. Will definately be getting the next installment. I dont believe in telling you about the plot in a review, I will let you find out about that in the book itself. You will not be disappointed.
Sadly the author died quite young having published three books in this series (and then two more were published after his death, based on already completed work. Not bad as a first book, a little generic and with an ending that was heavily signposted. Enough here to consider the second book although this one contained much that we have seen before.
I like this book. It's not up to the same intensity of a Mitch Rapp story but it is still a good read. The main character Kealey seems likeable enough. I see great potential in him. He doesn't mess about, he gets results.
