Having become an avid Gabriel Wolfe fan, I genuinely wondered whether Andy could successfully move the story forward from the dramatic close at the end of ‘No Further’ - I need not have worried the plot of ‘Torpedo’ is strong and the characterisation really engaging. As always the story revolves around the strength and resilience of the main character Gabriel Wolfe, however the surrounding cast are really well drawn. That aspect combined with the excellent technical insight in to security processes and equipment gives the reader a really feeling of authenticity when viewing in to the world of organised crime and terrorism. Each book in this series have progressively established Gabriel Wolfe as a credible and exciting action hero and right from the the first paragraph you are engaged with this story. The plot line is absorbing and any established Andy Maslen fans will love it, equally if you are new reader you can read this story as a stand-alone and really enjoy it if you like the action genre.
You really should hate the dark and violent character that is Gabriel Wolfe but Andy Maslen’s brilliant writing brings to life the broken and vulnerable person that he also is. In this book Wolfe sets out to seek revenge for the murder of his friend Britta. Along with his partner Eli they end up in the dark world of Russian gangs with dramatic effect. Although this book is gorey and violent in places it’s more story led than the others and, in my opinion, is Andy Maslen’s best yet.
Book no9 in the Gabrielle Wolfe series and possibly the best today’s. Gabrielle still suffers with inner demons but he is determined to banish them in the only way he know - with violence. Multiple twists and turns, keeps you hooked from page 1; very difficult to put down, even for a minute. Prepare yourself for a thrilling ride
A tense sequel to No Further with Gabriel Wolfe seeking vengeance on everyone involved in the murder of his friend, Britta. Racked with grief over her death and knowing that he was actually the gunman's target, Gabriel sets out on a bloody trail of revenge partnered by his fiancee, Eli. There is, as usual, plenty of action with Gabriel almost losing the plot.
I deducted a star as I felt that the "costume" (no spoilers) worn by Gabriel was a little too OTT as were the number of occasions when he received advice from people who were not actually present.
Torpedo is the latest book in the Gabriel Wolfe series and is an absolute ‘corker’! In my opinion Andy’s books just get better and better.
As with all of Andy’s books the plot twists and turns and I have now given up trying to guess how the story ends as I have been wrong every time!
This book is a great read and has put me well behind with my ‘need to do list’. I found it totally addictive and just couldn’t put it down. Please keep your books coming Andy.......but let me catch up on a few of my jobs first!
I'm sitting at home with a large grin on my face and feeling completely satisfied about completing Torpedo, Andy Maslen's latest offering about the life and adventures of the indefatigable Gabriel Wolfe, a character I've grown to admire very much.
If you're a fan of hard hitting, hero based modern combat fiction then reading this latest book will give you your 'fix' Gabriel has style, panache and bucket loads of grit and determination. He dispatches baddies quicker than Gordon Ramsay can muster up his latest swear infested insult to some poor hapless restauranteur.
This story moves like lightning across the pages and the storyline is driven by Gariel's desire to put right the wrong so harshly dealt to his friend, ex-lover and colleague.
I'm a great fan of the Gabriel Wolfe stories and I'm one of the lucky ones I guess as I've still got the back catalogue to get my teeth into!
To sum up this latest book is pretty easy really, brilliant!
I've followed this author from the beginning and every book gets better. Totally edge of the seat stuff, if you buy this, then be ready to read it in one instalment, it's that hard to put down. It's very hard not to give out any spoilers whilst trying to describe the intensity within these pages, and so I will leave it there. Buy it, read it and enjoy it. PS if you haven't tried the Stella Cole series yet, you should.
I have just read this, having read books 3 to 9 in the series over the last 2 weeks. This book follows on quickly after the previous one, with Gabriel going after the killer of his ex-fiancée with the help of Eli and Tanya, but officially not within the Department. The story has the usual twists and turns, but is still an entertaining read. Roll on the next in the series.
After the close of the last book, I wondered how the next book could pick up and follow on. BUT I was certainly NOT disappointed. Gabriel and Eli from a closer bond as they chase down Britta's killer. A fast paced, action packed adventure. Andy's writing just continues to improve. I still have not decided how I feel about Gabriel in terms of like vs hate. I await this next one!
Wow, although I am a totally committed Andy Maslen fan I still never cease to be amazed by each new book. He has the ability to find a new way to hold the reader completely each time, he is a true master of his craft way up amongst the popular writers and better than many. I can't wait for each new book to appear. If you want a really first class read, try one, but be warned, if you do you stand a chance of becoming totally addicted.
