Book Description

(Book 5 Friends From Damascus series)
Reed Maddox, a former bomb disposal technician in the British Army, is an expert at noticing the subtle irregularities that provide warnings of roadside bombs and IEDs. During multiple combat tours in Afghanistan, Iraq and Northern Ireland his senses were honed to alert him to danger. Now, with his military service in the past, he faces his greatest test as he tries to earn a place within an elite counterterrorist team known as the Friends From Damascus. The international group of spec ops warriors are on the hunt for Carrick Flynn, an IRA master bomb maker with a hate-filled heart and nothing to live for but revenge. The renegade bomber is only one of the challenges Maddox and the Friends must face as they dodge not only assassins, but world governments determined to bring the rogue team down for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great intrigue and character development. 16 Sept. 2014

Cliff Happy is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. His ability to develop unique characters in his stories and have them work so well together, in spite of their radical differences is amazing. Also his ability to keep the story flowing throughout these differences never lets you get sidetracked or lose sight of the story plot. I hate to have to stop reading to do something else.

As with all the other "Friends from Damascus" books, I devoured this. Cliff Happy is a master at character development and his knowledge and experience paint an amazing picture.

Excellent read. Even though Cliff has a tendency to be repetitive where it comes to describing how the team is 'cool under pressure' and their 'training kicks in' etc. , the story will keep you reading. If you like this sort of stories, like I do, then this is a must read !
