Good read, well worth picking up
on 16 June 2011
If your a fan of military thrillers novels by the likes Andy McNab or Chris Ryan then this debut novel by Ross Kemp is right up your street.
I am not going to pretend its a masterpiece but to be honest I would not know a masterpiece if it hit me in the face.
All I can say is I bought this book because it seemed like a book which can hold my attention and pass some time, I was not disappointed.
The story line is not too far-fetched either. Nick Kane is a believable character, true to his morals and values and not just some crazy super soldier we are used to seeing in books like this.
If I had to point out any negative aspects then I would have to say that the chapters are far too long for my style of reading and they seem to jump about a bit. You can still follow the story but its so action packed, you need a good memory.
So overall its a decent read, worth picking up. I will certainly be ordering the next novel by Ross Kemp.
PS: I am so glad the book went straight to paperback. I see no point in paying over the odds for a big clunky hard back edition of newly released books.
