They’re killing his team. He’s coming for them.
I received a copy of this book from Head of Zeus Books via Midas PR in return for an honest review.
This story gets your attention from the first page. Focusing on contemporary issues, it’s complex plot delivers an intense and often violent read. It’s part of a long-running series but reads as a standalone. Although to appreciate the team dynamic and character development, it’s advisable to read the books that come before, which I haven’t yet.
The setting is vividly described and evokes all the reader’s senses. The plot is fast-paced and keeps its momentum until the various sub-plots integrate into an impactful conclusion. The cast of characters is believable and the connection between the various team members, authentic and relatable.
Geopolitics, revenge and ruthless individuals define this story. Pike and his team are diverse and flawed, but their commitment to each other resonates.
