This is a different creature - a thriller. And in my opinion an excellent thriller. This book is a first class read it keeps you turning the pages.
I picked up this one many months ago added it to my "want to read list". Eventually I started this book on the 5th December 5 months after aquiring it on Kindle , Once started it was a must read.
Iain keep writing more thrillers!!!!
Just bought the next one.
In that vain it didn't disappoint. It's fast moving and filled with action from the start. It revolves around the heroine Sarah Stone, an ex army captain who has seen action in Afghanistan and come home after losing everything she ever had or wanted. She is now unemployed and considered a failure by her SAS Major father. Add to that a extreme level of no self esteem and hatred of everything she is in a bad way.
Enter the MCU. A secret government backed organisation tasked with anti terrorism and keeping the UK safe. They approach Sarah for her help in dealing with a situation that is gripping the UK by the short and curlies.. Initially she resists but then sees she really has no option as ghosts from her harrowing past come back to haunt her. That's all I can say on the story without giving it away.
In this book Iain Rob Wright has proved to me at least he can pull off a thriller. The characters are endearing and you can't help but love the good guys and hate the bad guys - this is something Mr Wright does very well in all his novels - the "heroes" are thrown together from all walks of life and you would imagine they would be doomed to failure but manage to band together in so many ways to keep going. As well as the action there is a certain dark humour throughout this book that will make you laugh out loud at times.
Well written (as always) and very well put together. I imagine this is going to be the first of many Sarah Stone adventures. Not Mr Wrights strongest book in my humble opinion but I'm sure as the character develops this will change.
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.
