Product Description

Ex-MI5 Harry Tate is back. “Harry. Plse make Grosvenor Square tomorrow 18.30. Urgent. Remember Mirovica.” An atrocity that allegedly took place under Harry’s watch in Kosovo in 1999 returns to haunt him when he receives a summons from an old UN contact. A lone assassin is tracking down all those who were present that fateful night, despatching his victims with cold, skilful efficiency. Who is he and why does he want revenge? If he is to uncover the identity of this ruthless killer and stay alive in the process, Harry must uncover what really happened in Mirovica back in 1999.

5.0 out of 5 stars Retribution 7 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover
The title refers to a plan to exact vengeance for an act which opens the novel, in Kosovo in 1999. The plot deals with an extended cat-and-mouse game, with p.o.v. alternating between the two. On the one side is a man calling himself, among other names, Kassim, trained in Chechnya and the desert camps by specialist `tutors.'

On the other side is Harry Tate, ex-soldier, ex-MI5, now a civilian working for a security company as the novel opens, when he is contacted by a man who had been the UN's local field security representative when Harry had been part of the NATO-led multi-national peacekeeping force, heading a close protection (read "bodyguard") assignment for a UN VIP. The time and place? Kosovo, 1999. It appears that just before Harry's team left the area, a 14-year-old Muslim girl was raped and murdered inside their compound. And now an assassin is tracking down all those who were present and one by one killing them. Harry is tasked with finding the rest of the men before any more lives are lost - - his own included.

The action-packed novel moves from the desert to London, Paris, New York City, Brussels and Moscow, among other places, in a suspenseful and intense journey. The author has done a terrific job creating a totally believable world and an equally credible protagonist. It is even possible, shockingly, to find the antagonist sympathetic. Tate is not one given to drama, relying instead on thorough investigation and instinct. This was my first introduction to this author, and to Harry Tate, and I can't wait to read the next in the series. Highly recommended.

I have yet to read an Adrian Magson book that I don't like. All are very well written, have sound plots and are fully researched. An excellent read can be guaranteed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new very enjoyable find for me 30 Jun 2014
By Wayne Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amazon convinced me to buy Execution in this series and I was hooked. A definite high quality series of thrillers with believable plots and well developed characters. The portrayal of Harry is particularly good, he is believable and real as are the other players in all of the books. A very enjoyable series and great fun to find out this author has written many more books.

Harry Tate is former MI-5 asked to help the UN clear up some accusations. The killer was more interesting than Harry. I found the Kosovo/Afghan connection.

1.0 out of 5 stars weakest of the series 8 Jun 2014
By bluenoser (Zal D) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
i have my suspicions that his was not written by magson himself. compared to the previous in the series the plot is thin. the dialogue is stilted. there is odd phrasing . and both the narrative and dialogue often seem almost juvenile. i gave up with disinterest half way through. i do not recommend.
