Summary

An edge-of-your-seat action thriller from best-selling author Will Jordan, perfect for fans of James Phelan and Vince Flynn.

Ryan Drake and his team are in hiding, having become sworn enemies of states and agencies around the world. But when a CIA operative and former adversary is killed in a car bomb attack, Drake is shocked to hear someone claiming responsibility using his name. Forced out of hiding by this mysterious new threat, Drake embarks alone on a dangerous and deadly search for answers; a journey that will take him from the slums of Rio to the deserts of Tunisia and the mountains of Afghanistan. But as the stranger’s insidious influence grows stronger, he begins to realise the key to unravelling the present lies in his own shadowy past. Following his trail of destruction, the team must fight to save Drake not only from a list of ruthless enemies, but even more urgently, from himself.

A masterpiece both in edge of seat action and in the depth of Drake’s struggle and mind

Probably the best in the Ryan Drake series Will Jordan delivers a fast paced thriller with intrigue and mind searching exploration into Drake’s psychological struggle with himself. Often I would say to myself ‘Wow, that was a powerful scene, the writing was amazing’. Fantastically performed by Sam Devereaux.

Disappointing compared to the previous books

Premise feels so abruptly different from the previous books that I struggled to get through it. I won't go so far as to call it a bad book, but I do not feel that I came away feeling as interested in the series as I did before this books. Hoping the next installment rekindles it.
