Summary

When the SAS takes on the Narcos, there can be only one winner.

Set in 2011 in Mexico and London, Warlord is based on real events. Series hero Danny Black leads an SAS squad on loan to the CIA and sent to the Mexican border. The old Colombian drug gangs are being driven out by New Mexican gangs and their crack killing teams, called the Zitas. This is leading to a new, unprecedented flood of heroin engulfing Southern American states. Danny's squad is to take the war to the Zitas, who have received Special Forces training, and to assassinate their mysterious leader.

Danny's younger brother is a junkie, and it will soon become apparent that the Zitas have a very long reach.

Awful

Awful. Like a child has written a book after watching Sicario and forgotten the good bits.

You won't put this down

Danny Black takes on the baddest Mexicans there are. Will he survive, will his mates survive, what will the Regiment do ? The best Ryan book I've read yet.

Gripped

Couldn't put it down so to speak... The ending is difficult but you really do get it, I think Mr Ryan has upped his game with the Danny Black stories. A very good read or should I say listen.

Great story with a couple of twists I didn't see coming. Hope there is another chapter in the future.
