I've never read any of Mr. Wright's books; horror fiction doesn't interest me in the slightest. Not knowing his background explained my initial thoughts when I started reading this thriller. I can understand now why everything felt so bleak and world weary. There has to be light and shade in everything in life, and this is so dark you need to have a light on wherever you read it. The action is well handled though, whether in a Middle Eastern war zone or on home soil back in the UK and that rescues things enough to make this an okay read.

I've been reading Iain's books since The Final Winter (which I loved) years ago.
Soft Target is different - not Sci-fi horror - the monsters are people. I liked that the lead character was a woman.
This book, for me, was a page turner.
I've read a good few of Iain's books as free giveaways. He gives away so many good books, I don't know how he manages to make a profit.
Now I'm going to buy Major Crimes Unit Book 2.

Iain Rob Wright is a talent beyond compare. A fantastic range of characters in this thriller so brilliantly written in a story that just won't stop. Enough praise from me, I'm starting the sequel right away.

This book is a shocking look at today's society. Kids going around in loud, abusive gangs making normal, law abiding people afraid to walk past them in the street. Powerful writing

Well this was a nice supprise. I have read nearlly all of Iain Rob Wrights novels and have enjoyed his take on the horror genre, a kinda early Richard Laymen, but this well if you've read any of his books you will know that this is a major departure.

You dont need me to go into detail about the characters, the story, I will leave that up to you to find out what they are like but I highly recommend this book.

A very easy read, an interesting take on the Terrorist threat, lots of action, some dry humor and whilst you can see the end coming it still wont stop you going "oh for f sake, whens the next sodding book coming out".

I really hope Mr Wright continues with this series, he has a natural talent for this genre, an ideal read for the beach or travelling to work, just put your brain into nuetraul and enjoy.

I cant wait for the next instalment.

Soft target is certainly action packed, but I can't help feeling that the country would be better off without this bungling bunch of half wits, they are supposed to be the elite terrorist unit yet they make mistakes so obvious even I can see they are screwing up. Example - the terrorist hq they storm into with out even doing surveillance first, one of them nearly gets shot and the building (and evidence) is destroyed by the people they are after, even the most basically trained policeman would know this is the wrong way to go about it, but time after time they go into dangerous situations risking being shot at, kidnapped, etc. I feel sure that if they were truly this bad the plug would have been pulled on this outfit a long time ago, as it is they just hamper other intelligence organisation's activities. The ending is set for a follow up but I won't be joining the series again.
