As usual, the inimitable Mr Gallacher has come up with a cracker of a story! It carries on the series - but could be read as a stand-alone as there are enough hints about the previous books to make the story understandable. You certainly wouldn't regret reading them all in order though.

I'm amazed I like them so much, as for years I wouldn't've gone anywhere near this "genre", imagining it to be a "bloke thing", i.e. ex-SAS chaps setting up an international business against the unpleasant things in the world (drugs, people trafficking and prostitution to name but a few) and the people that deal in them.

However, once I read the first one, that was it, hooked, and I've not missed one since. "Deadly Impasse" is the latest and a really engrossing read (in English, that means you can't put it down) Good plot, believable action, with nice twisty bits to keep you guessing. There is the knowledge that in Mr. G's books, as in real life, being a good guy doesn't mean you're immortal, which adds to the suspense.

It's a good versus evil story, with well crafted characters, a dose of humour, and Mr. G knows his stuff about the SAS, weapons etc. - and he certainly brings different parts of the world to life for me, most of my travelling has been through reading. There is a perfect amount of description (detail, detail, detail) without being overpowering or too wordy - and as with all really GOOD books, finishing it leaves you somewhat bereft, with an addict's small voice in the back of your head saying "when's the next? I need another...."

Nice one Mr. G......oh by the way, when is the next one?

Alarums and excursions.
Bombs and bullets.
Heartache and coffee.
A satisfying body count.

Why is Hollywood wasting its time with Jack Reacher when it could be better occupied making Jack Calder films?

In another cinematic novel - the fifth in the series - ISP once more goes head-to-head with the international bad guys. Under the intelligent, yet compassionate leadership of Mae-Ling, Jack and the boys don their night-vision goggles once more in a series of lightning raids against the forces of inhumanity. The action ranges from the bank vaults of Luxembourg to the beaches of Tunisia where desperate migrants seek Western sanctuary, to the drug factories of Central America, and climaxing in a "going black" raid in Cyprus.

Seumas Gallacher's page-turners take me back to my early reading days of Hammond Innes and Alastair McLean where morality was more than an empty phrase, and "just deserts" was the satisfying outcome of any well-crafted action adventure. Unlike some series, that peter out after a couple of books, the Jack Calder novels continue their strong and seemingly inexhaustible run.

Again, and again - this guy writes the material you want to read when you really like the thriller in the modern world. Fast-moving, decent background and believable characters against a background that is, I have to say regretfully, all-too realistic. I have said it before, but you know you want to read something that gives the good chaps a chance, that there is evil and badness in the world, but there has to be some chance for right to prevail. It does not always do so, and you'll not waste your time reading this story but I'm not giving anything away. You can read this without first reading the previous on the series - honestly, you CAN - but you'll want to read the previous when you've read this!

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed 3 out of 4 of the Jack Calder series (haven't read Vengeance Wears Black yet for some reason) I felt like I was meeting up with old friends and catching up on their latest escapades. Seumas has a delightful way with words. Scenarios are obviously well researched and thought out. I loved the fast paced way the characters & story moved between continents & found the people smuggling section moving & poignant especially in view of current world situations.
Hoping there will be more Jack Calder stories to come & promise to read Vengeance soon!
Thanks again for wonderful writing Seumas

Another episode in the action packed world of Jack Calder and his buddies at ISP. I got this book at 7am this morning and finished it at 5pm because when I opened it I couldn't put it down. The boys and girls range all over Europe, Africa and Central America sorting out the bad guys again. It's a great series but now I guess I will have to wait another year for Seumas to get number 6 out.

My first foray into the adventurous world of Jack Calder and his associates at ISP, and I can guarantee it will not be my last. I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting, mostly because I couldn't bear to put it down...every time I thought to myself just one more chapter, another twist in the tale kept me hanging in there.
Combining the worlds of international banking and refugee trafficking could be challenging but here two very diverse topics are cleverly tied together in a very timely story given the state of the world today. Following an explosion at a large bank in Luxembourg, the CEO , Francine is persuaded to hire ISP, as it becomes clear that the explosion is just a warning of greater dangers to come.
This was my first adventure with Jack and Co, and a dangerous but charming bunch of characters they turned out to be. Ex SAS officer Jack is everything you would expect from a hero with his background, and his interplay with his beautiful and clever wife May Ling is a thing of joy, their dialogue has the feel of real affection without being cheesy. Her character, from the little I have seen in this book ,definitely intrigues me and I am hoping to find more of her back story as I read the other books in this series. It's clear Mr Gallacher has an ear for dialect, one of his characters Malky is only described as being Irish, but from his idiomatic speech I had pinned him down to one specific region, and I was thrilled to find I was correct close to the end of the book. Its little authentic details like this that I treasure as a reader, as they make the whole experience more immersive.
