5.0 out of 5 stars Good final instalment to excellent series, 24 April 2008
By 
This review is from: Meltdown (Boy Soldier) (Hardcover)
In perhaps the final chapter in the Boy Soldier series and the sequel to the excellent Avenger, Danny and Fergus have been assigned a mission to find and stop the makers of a deadly new drug.

With its fast paced action and a stronger position for Danny as a professional worker, Meltdown is different and more assertive in its job than the previous books in the series, which makes the forth instalment intriguing and exciting.

Having Danny put in a more distinctive and grown up role shows a different side to the character. This is interesting to read and observe.

However there isn't as much excitement to his character here as there was in previous novels, with him determined to be right and be a professional, though it is understandable given the circumstances.

The plot is consistent and intriguing, exploring the highs and lows of people in the drug industry with plenty of twists and turns in stall for the characters.

There again is a strong focus on following orders and doing your job, excellent focus from McNab's SAS days. The plot gives an insight into what it is like following orders and going undercover to explore the truth and find and destroy the bad guys and their operations.

Storm was a very interesting character as was her previous boyfriend and the introduction of new characters is something McNab does very well, giving each their own personal story and attitude gives the story more depth and feeling.

Avenger was the best of the series but this is a good follow up with strong action, commitment and a technical minded set, the series was undoubtedly one of the best I have ever read, thank you McNab.

8/10
