The rogue 'Black' CIA splinter cell (which is working for the goodies) is really beginning to wear a little thin to me so I will not be reading any 'follow ups' to this book
I found the storyline initially gripping and exciting, even though it was difficult to keep track of all the characters. At this stage, I even recommended the book to others. About half way through I began to lose interest, and glossed over several sections but managed to stick with it to the end.
I felt no affinity or empathy with any of the characters. In this type of book, one character usually stands out as the likeable hero, but in this case Daniel Petrovich did nothing to redeem himself, by killing innocent and guilty alike.
The sad fact is that despite what you might be told at school, or at college, or down the pub... not everyone can be an author. And some should never be. And unfortunately the Kindle Market is a bit like the auditions section of the X-Factor - lots of average-to-good talent mixed in with a lot of dross which tends to get in the way of discovering those with a REAL talent.
Thankfully, Mr Konkoly is one of the latter (ie: someone with a genuine talent) and having completed the first book in the Black Flagged series I immediately logged on and bought the other three - even though they weren't 'on offer'. If you knew how tight I was and how much I genuinely struggle with shelling out cash on a 'virtual' product (there's just something about having the feel and weight of a REAL book in your hand) then you'd know that this is praise indeed!
Black Flagged is something that resembles an early Tom Clancy novel - strong, believable characters and a suitably twisting plotline, one which feels that it's backed up with at least a little research (albeit probably not to the levels that Clancy used to go to).Read more ›
If you like FBI/CIA conspiracy thrillers then this might be worth a shot for a dollar or a pound.
However, that said, it is an exciting helter skelter action packed ride, well enough written to enable you to ignore the improbability and enjoy the action - as you would in any James Bond film

I'm a big crime thriller fan but this book was a struggle. It just felt like not much happened and then all of a sudden it ended - with a very dull ending. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Alison Downs

This is a superior contribution to what has become a slightly hackneyed genre. The research and details are excellent and the standard of writing extremely competent.Published 4 months ago by Alastair
