Jack has always heard about the white tunnel that one passes through when dying, but his tunnel is more like a grey fog - he’s given a chance to accept Anchanchu, a brain worm, (who had occupied many people like Caligula, Nero and most notorious of all, Jack the Ripper). He gives Jack the chance to accept him and return to life. Jack decides that he’ll take the offer, (not fully understanding what this will entail in his future!)
In the year since his “rebirth”, Jack has taken on several clients with problems that needed sorting. His latest client, Rachel Koenig employs him as she’s convinced that Vladimir Roskov, leader of a Russian Mafia, has a hold over her husband, Rolf, a brilliant scientist building a machine that is intended to help look for minerals on the moon and other planets, bringing untold wealth to all who have bought into his scheme.
Jack very quickly discovers that not all is as it seems and finds that he’s facing enemies from all sides including a rogue group within the CIA. (His ex-employers)
I’m struggling to come up with a description that will push you into purchasing this book. I wanted to describe it as sipping a beautiful cabernet, but somehow with so many dead bodies, thought it would be inappropriate!
Normally I’m a fast reader, but I found myself re-reading some sections just for the pure enjoyment of the words the author had written.Read more ›
Jack, a CIA agent on the trail of his brother’s killer, finds himself facing Carlton ‘Priest’ Williams and a gang of knife wielding thugs in a Calcutta alley. After a bloody fight Jack, well outnumbered and badly wounded, is found by a nun. Taken to a basic clinic and unable to be saved, Jack is pronounced dead. Until, that is, he’s visited by the demon, Anchanchu. Jack has an unimaginable decision to make.
Jack has been freelance since his revival and it’s his latest client who inadvertently involves him and Janet in a plot, masterminded by an accomplished scientist, the Russian mafia and corrupt members of the CIA, which threatens the safety and security of the United States. Once again the integrity of intelligence agencies and governments, and the way they operate at the highest levels, is called into question.
I love the supernatural twist in the story and how it relates to Jack and his deadly skills. Richard Phillips has created a fascinating and compelling protagonist, fulfilling the promise which began in the Rho Agenda. The narrative pulled me into the story totally and, as always, MacLeod Andrews gives a superbly delivered performance whilst actually raising the bar. As each chapter comes from a different point of view so the narration reflects that person’s characterisation. It works really well. Significant character development and an extremely fast-moving plot kept me hooked until the end. This was well worth the wait.
