It continues the story of SAS hero Danny Black who previously appeared in Masters of War. I haven't read that book but didn't feel too much out of place as there's plenty of background given to get the reader up to speed. Following a suicide bombing in Central London Danny and his friend Spud are recruited to assassinate the men responsible for the attack before going after the main man Abu Ra'id on a journey that takes them from London to Yemen and back again on what really is a thrilling, fast paced and truly unputdownable read. Almost like a film in parts it was hugely enjoyable.
The very idea of another terrorist attack in London is horrifying and something we hope never to see, the scenes depicted here are quite brutal and not for the faint hearted. Danny and Spud are recruited by various senior members of MI5, MI6 and the CIA. Some of the characters are definitely a bit shady and leave you wondering whether they might have a hidden agenda or two. As the book went on I was both mesmerised and horrified at the situations that unfolded. Conspiracy theories and cover ups galore it was a thought provoking read.
What I particularly like is the way Chris adds humour into the story. Despite the job they have been given and the often life threatening situations the pair find themselves in, there's still an element of banter between them which helps lighten an otherwise quite serious novel.Read more ›
The subject matter is what got me to purchase the book as its topical and sadly believable in today's world. The story was well paced and had me hooked from start to finish. I grew fond of the characters very quickly and I will be going straight back to the bookshop to get book 1 tomorrow.
I tend to read a lot of books and am a big fan of Vince Flynn, Brad Taylor, Ben Coes, Andy McNab and Boyd Morrison. Masters of War was my first Chris Ryan book and Hunter-Killer is my second. As I write this, I'm finding it hard to remember a book that thrilled me as much. I literally couldn't read fast enough at times, desperate to find out what happened next!
Beware though. Chris Ryan doesn't pull his punches and in Danny Black, we have a ruthless 'hero'.
I'm now about to start Murder Team, which is a Danny Black novella, and can't wait for Hellfire (also known as Fade to Black) in August.
If you like a tough thriller and books by the authors mentioned above, then you will love Chris Ryan's books ... Start with Masters of War and then strap yourself in for Hunter-Killer!
