Hard to write a full review of this book without giving too much away, but here goes.
Chris Ryan's Hero of this book witnesses the historic event of the US SEALS taking out Bin Laden, what he doesn't know is why this leads to people wanting to kill him.
The plot is typical Ryan, and hurtles along at a breakneck speed. The action is slick,well told and violent. His character isn't meant to be a believable hero, he is meant to be a man you can get behind and root for. The villain's are what good action adventure books need, slimy, evil, ruthless and easy to spot. But our hero is more than a match for them. Matches violence with violence and what they can do he can do it back to them in spades.
The story is bang up to date, and in the style of all great spy/action/adventure novels could be true.
I bought the book and read it in a few days, I wanted the story to go on further if you read it you will see what I mean, and that's a good thing for an author to do. I can not recommend it highly enough. Don't think its great literature, it wont win clever prizes. What it will win is fans galore and fill Mr Ryan's bank account up.
Brilliant lets have more please.
