I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
This is the first book in the Christopher Wren series, and my first book by this author. There’s violence, written using graphic imagery, that is a signature of this type of action international thriller.
The main protagonist is a contemporary anti-hero. He’s the weapon government agencies use to rid themselves of predatory forces and terrorists. His moral compass is finely balanced, and his emotional damage great, in some ways more of a creation than a human his effectiveness is legendary. He has a story, of course, which the reader learns as the story progresses.
Wren’s vigilantes have his back, but it’s a fine line between good and bad in this complex and fast-paced plot. The setting and scenarios are believable, and this authenticity gives the story its edge. Vividly described characters draw the reader into this dark world, which in many ways seems frighteningly real.
This story of relentless action and violence with an intricate plot is addictive if unsettling reading.
