What do you do when the love of your life vanishes without a trace? If you’re ex-intelligence agent James Ryker you search for the answers whatever the cost, however much blood and sacrifice it takes…
Six months ago Lisa was taken from Ryker, and he’ll stop at nothing to find out who is responsible and why. Following a trail to Mexico, the ex-Joint Intelligence Agency asset soon finds himself in the firing line of enemies he long thought he’d left behind. Set-up for the murder of a former informant, Ryker is thrown into a crumbling jail run by The Black Hornet, the notorious leader of a Mexican drug cartel. But what connects the cartel to the informant’s murder, and to Lisa’s disappearance? And just who is the mystery American claiming he can help Ryker in his hour of need?
The Black Hornet is the second book in the bestselling James Ryker series. Part Bourne, part Reacher, it’s an explosive and action-packed thriller to rival any other.
My rating 5 out of 5 stars.
James Ryker is an ex JIT agent and he and his wife, Lisa, have ‘reinvented’ themselves in the hope of being able to live a relatively normal life away from the violence and danger of their past.
This is the 2nd book in the James Ryker series and picks up the story where The Red Cobra ended. James arrives home to find his wife has gone missing all her belongings are still there but she isn’t. Because of his past he has no friends or family and therefore sets off on his lone crusade to find out what happened to her.
His first stop is Mexico and he hasn’t finished his first coffee in this country before he is thrown in the middle of a battle with the Mexican police in which the person he was hoping could have information about Lisa is killed. He finds himself thrown in prison, accused of murder, and into another battle with drug cartels and the violence that accompanies them.
Jack is a complex character used to living in danger he expects to find it around every corner and often that is what he finds. He is trying to live a normal life but it seems life has other ideas. He is the main character in the story.
This is a very gripping, fast paced story about life in a secret agency. It is packed with action, violence and corruption and twists and turns. It really begs the question: Can you ever truly escape that life? Is it not the case that being part of a secret organisation means that you can never be allowed to live a life outside taking with you all the secrets and knowledge that the organisation leaders are prepared to kill to keep?
Another excellent book by Rob Sinclair. Thank you to Bloodhound Books for the advance copy.
