Back on form

I loved Nomad but went a little off Exile, when I felt the action sequences had become too Hollywood, and Mark Dane started to look for like Dwayne Johnson in my head. Really pleased to find that Ghost seems to have toned down a little, and gone back to the root. Narator is first class too.

An endless tirade of fight sequences. :-(

The previous Mark Dane books were fast, but with interesting substance between the fights. Ghost, however, seems to have shifted the emphasis to a seemingly continuous series of fights, with minimal character development or actual plot development. As a middle-aged man, this only appealed to a (somewhat distant) teenager inside, but while I persevered, I was left waiting for the end only to get it over and done with. Somewhat disappointing, since the previous books, although definitely in the category of light read, at least had some quite interesting plot. This didn't, and I would NOT recommend this to anyone who read the previous two books and thought they erred already to a bit too much action. TBH, I'm not sure I'd even recommend it to my 14 year old son: it's that light on plot.

I’m out of superlatives

Can’t say anything other than you have to read this after reading books 1&2 which were every bit as good as this one. Don’t know how he does it, every story line is plausible, especially in the current climate

Good story thanks

I found that the narrator was not very intuitive or had not read the passages through enough to read some phrases smoothly as they should have been expressed. This happened more in some parts than in others and I was a bit disappointed.

High Tech, Fully Charged

We have betrayal, revenge and a group of terrorists that are planning a series of devastating attacks. This is an entertaining plot with plenty of high stakes action.
