I guess some of us can never have too many rugged, super-skilled ex military / secret agent tough guys in our lives. I tend to devour the Reachers and Pullers of this world and it seems I've found another one in James Ryker. He's a man who is drawn back to his shadowy and violent past when an unresolved situation from his past rises up again. The book is very fast-paced and cleverly structured such that both Ryker and the Red Cobra are unveiled as characters with their separate stories.

There were some things that just struck me as a bit unrealistic but the key ones ended up being explained well including how the Red Cobra gained such deadly and stealthy skills. In truth this is very much a sit back, don't think too much, grab some popcorn and relax book. However, it is very enjoyable and I really did like how the author pulled all the strings together at the end. This appears to be Marston York's debut on Audible UK and he does a fine job, I would happily listen to him again.

All in all this was enjoyable and the time I spent listening to it passed by very quickly. If you're looking for a thriller with a lot of depth or one that doesn't rely on the characters showing a bit of inconsistency then it might not suit you. However, it is an entertaining and violent thriller with some neat twists and plenty of action. Good enough for me to follow the series going forwards.
