Summary

Soon to be a TV series starring Chris Pratt.

Deep in the wilds of Siberia, a woman is on the run, pursued by a man harbouring secrets - a man intent on killing her.

Half a world away, James Reece is recovering from brain surgery in the Montana wilderness, slowly putting his life back together with the help of investigative journalist Katie Buranek and his longtime friend and SEAL teammate Raife Hastings. 

Unbeknown to them, the Russian mafia has set their sights on Reece in a deadly game of cat and mouse. 

In his most visceral and heart-pounding thriller yet, Jack Carr explores the darkest instincts of humanity through the eyes of a man who has seen both the best and the worst of it.

Critic reviews

"Carr writes both from the gut and a seemingly infinite reservoir of knowledge in the methods of human combat. Loved it!" (Chris Hauty, best-selling author of Deep State)

A bit heavy on the patriotism,

I really do enjoy this series, and Jack carr can tell a gripping story with obviously a lot of knowledge and personal experience. Even the sections involving aircraft are accurate which is very unusual for books/movies (as a pilot I am pleased to see this).
As a Brit my eyes roll at the cringe comments about ‘freedom & liberties & brotherhood’ etc. Also the redacted sections seem pointless for a fiction?? Anyway still love this series!!!

Brilliant as always from Jack Carr

Read brilliantly by Ray Porter. Jack knows what he’s writing, the first hand operator experience flows off the pages like fog over field.
Can’t recommend this series enough. Only issue now is the wait for the next instalment!

Gripping story could not have taken a break between chapters.

So many twists and turns which do not allow the listener to relax. You have to listen and keep listening till you get to the end of the story.

Very Good but

I found this book a little bit to, detail focused on describing each and every character as long winded as possible and way to much product placement.

And why dose the narrator have to be a man trying to talk like a woman it’s just strange.

Surpassed all the other books now

Jack Carr has taken James Reece to another level in Savage Son. I love Ray Porters narration he really captures the nuances of the characters.
I really enjoyed how James Reece went back to his origins as a frogman. Really Top Notch Mr Carr. 🙏🙌🇺🇲🔱 ☆☆☆☆☆
