Just when you think it can’t get any better than THE RED COBRA comes THE BLACK HORNET and you think that can’t be beaten then along comes SILVER WOLF. What can I say? Not enough to do it justice that is for sure! A brilliant, riveting read that will appeal to every reader of Crime Fiction. This is one book/series you don’t want to miss. Thank you to Sarah Hardy, Rob Sinclair and Bloodhound Books for inviting me on the Blog Tour.
THE SILVER WOLF by Rob Sinclair
Ryker wants blood, and one way or another he’ll get it...
Still tormented by the disappearance of his wife, ex-intelligence agent James Ryker sets out on a personal mission of revenge, prepared to go to any lengths in search of the truth.
The trail takes him from the crystal waters of Mexico’s Caribbean coast, back to a place he thought he would never set foot again – his country of birth, England. But there he discovers more than even he bargained for. Stumbling across a terrorist attack targeted against his old employers – the secretive Joint Intelligence Agency -the faint clues to many events in his recent past are all seemingly linked to one mysterious character; The Silver Wolf.
But just who is the Silver Wolf, and why is he hell bent on punishing not just Ryker, but his closest allies at the JIA too?
Has Ryker finally met his match?
The Silver Wolf is a globe-trotting thriller that sees James Ryker at his hard-nosed best as he fights the ghosts of his past. As skilled as Jason Bourne, as no-nonsense as Jack Reacher, James Ryker delivers in another heart-pounding thriller.
This is book 3 in the James Ryker series and the books just get better. There is a reason why they fly up the Amazon charts: hundreds of readers can’t be wrong these books are BRILLIANT. I have read all 3 in this series and plan to read Rob’s backlist asap.
Carl Logan and Angela were secret service agents and thought they had left it all behind. They reinvented themselves as James and Lisa Ryker. They created a new life together but you can never really escape your past and James was dragged back in to service in The Red Cobra. While he was hunting down the enemy Lisa disappeared and James, having found her body, is now on a hunt for her killer.
James character builds gradually in the previous books but they do work very well as stand-alone although I would recommend reading them in sequence to ensure you get the full enjoyment. James is a well trained and resourceful agent and definitely someone you wouldn’t want as your enemy. As your friend he will always have your back and this is repayed by his seniors who use their powers to extract him from difficult situations.
The book is extremely well written and the reader is gripped from the first page as we are taken on a journey through the underworld of the secret services we all know exist but are very well hidden. It is a very realistic view with tragic consequences among the successes of the actions taken in pursuit of their pray.
In this book his relationship with Willoughby plays a big part and makes the story work. It isn’t a romantic relationship, sex doesn’t figure in the lives of these people, it is a relationship built on respect for each other and a commitment to their chosen career. There are some horrific images brought to life in the book that keeps the adrenaline pumping and the pages turning.
Another absolutely brilliant read from an author that never disappoints.
