Having enjoyed the first book in this series I was really pleased to find that the storyline flows easily from book 1 into this 2nd part.
Like Child No. 3 (first in this trilogy) the story continues to be fast-paced, non-stop action with high and low moments and I couldn't put it down so finished reading this earlier today.
The only negative I can write is that there is a real need for a proof-reader as the constant grammatical errors and the spelling mistakes mean that you have to constantly stop to re-read passages in order to get it straight in your head what the author means.
This is off-putting at times but did not stop me from wanting to read on, so much so, that tonight I'm going to start reading the third and final book - Target No. 1.

I have read this author before and was really looking forward to his latest book and I wasn't disappointed. Yet another gripping novel that fails to disappoint. I love that as well as the fast paced, tense and gripping storyline he can still add humour as you get to know the characters. I would highly recommend this book to anyone enjoys a good thriller.
Hurry up and finish the next book please!!!

A fast paced thriller which follows on from Child number three. Those of you who like a well crafted, unputdownable book will love this, but make sure you have the time put aside when you can read it non stop, those other jobs will just have to wait! It's full of twists and turns and in places will take your breathe away by the sheer pace of the action. A thoroughly good read!

Probably the best way I can recommend this book is that on finishing it I immediately logged onto the Kindle Store, bought the next one in the trilogy, and carried on reading. As I mentioned in my review of the Child No. 3, for me the writing transcends genres and irrespective of what you would normally read you will just enjoy the story. But it's a fast-paced, dramatic thriller, carrying lots of sub-plots without trying to be too clever and over-complicate itself. Characters are developed in this second book, with Vitali, the young Russian assassin, managing to bring some humour into the story despite the obvious drawbacks of the darker aspects of his profession. Great read.
