Summary

From the best-selling author of Soldier Spy, former MI5 officer Tom Marcus, comes the first in a thrilling new fiction series. 

Matt Logan is an MI5 agent for the British government. Working on the front line of counterterrorism in the UK, he's trained to protect its citizens against all threats. 

When two brothers known operationally as 'Iron Sword' and 'Stone Fist' are suspected of plotting a major terrorist event, Logan and his team work undercover to track them down. If they fail, an attack will be unleashed that will rock the country to its very core. 

Frustrated by always needing to obey the rules, Logan yearns for a way to break through the red tape that hinders their progress. His wishes seem to come true when he is offered the chance to join a new, deniable outfit known as 'Blindeye'. 

Then devastating news reaches Logan, throwing his world into turmoil. But one thing remains certain - he will join the team and become their fiercest, most ruthless operative.... 

Capture or Kill is the first in Tom Marcus' breathtaking series featuring tortured MI5 operative Matt Logan.

Fast Paced Fun Spy Story!

In terms of credentials for writing spook stories few are going to beat ex-MI5 man Tom Marcus. To my surprise in his fictional writing he has chosen a light touch, fast-paced approach to his expertise. You aren't going to find out a huge amount about how MI5 operates here, he's not showing off his undoubted knowledge. Instead he treats us to a fast-paced adventure that is very efficiently written with almost no padding. Written in the first person it follows MI5 agent Matt Logan through a brief but very traumatic adventure.

In truth while I enjoyed it immensely because of its very fast pacing, good action and an extremely impressive vocal by Jason Langley you aren't going to find any great character depth or originality here apart from possibly how the climactic scenes work out. Put simply, this is a well put together story of British agents battling jihadi terrorists. But if that's your thing and you like a book that doesn't pull any punches or hang around on street corners discussing the finer points in life you'll likely get a lot of fun out of it like I did.

Absolutely Outstanding & Gripping

From start to finish the narration draws you in, the detail, the astounding feel had me shedding tears of both anger and sadness.
Quite simply brilliant. As a veteran who has left the military recently the unbelievable reality of this story is scary as it is real. Absolutely the best book I have had the pleasure to buy from Audiobooks and I will now buy it from a bookstore. A++++

Another great book by Tom

Another great book from Tom Marcus.. Having listened to his first book Soldier Spy, I couldn’t wait to listen to another straight away, however had to wait till this one came out..

A very good story line that keep you on the edge of the seat all the time, or car seat as I’ve listened to it whilst driving..

The narrator Jason Langley also does the book really justice, full of energy and enthusiasm. Never a dull moment.

Looking forward to your next book Tom..

excellent

I'm not one for fiction but having listened to Soldier Spy several times I thought it may be worth a shot.
I wasn't disappointed, Tom Marcus has written the book brilliantly and narration by Langley is as good as Soldier Spy.
highly recommend

Plenty of details and pace in a great story

Really enjoyed this listen. As you would expect, plenty of operational details, often small but never insignificant. Always drawing you further into the fight. Willing you to read on. And on. Brilliant writing coupled with first class narration. Highly recommended.

Excellent follow up by Marcus

This book is an excellent follow up from Tom Marcus' first. As an audio book it's fast pace and balance between tension and suspense is superbly delivered by the voice actor. The book provides an interesting insight into what life as an MI5 Surveillance Officer may entail, albeit with the added drama. This book also draws parallels to the biographical nature of Marcus' first where it is likely that some personal experiences were included for depth. Thoroughly recommend and please keep them coming! Much more interesting than a McNabb book!

Excellent

After Soldier Spy, I pre ordered this book and it did not dissapoint. I couldn't stop listening from start to finish.
Marcus' obsessive attention to detail and the excellent narration pull the listener into the action so vividly that the book was over far too soon.
