Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A horrifyingly sad note starts the action here for terrorists are using Down Syndrome youngsters to act as decoys in their devastating plans. The kids are left guarding a suitcase which then blows up. The case therefore of course had not been left ‘unattended’. From there the plot weaves into a possible mole in MI6 or MI5, a leak alerting the Pakistanis to US intelligence and our heroes, Danny and Spud, in lots of trouble both personal and international. Ryan’s plots have become less technical, more intrigue and issue led. They go from strength to strength.

If you like Chris Ryan you might also like to read books by Clive Cussler, Gerald Seymour and Vince Flynn.

Synopsis

Hunter-Killer by Chris Ryan

Their operations are deniable. Their skill is deadly. SAS hero Danny Black is recruited to an assassination squad directed to hunt down and kill terrorist cells in a gripping thriller from the man who knows what it's like at the front line. The suicide bomb strikes central London. The trail leads first to a hate cleric in a North London mosque, and his connections to a devout Saudi prince with a taste for hookers, drugs and booze. But it's not only when Danny tracks down his target to a training camp in the Yemen that he finds there may be a connection a hell of a lot closer to home.

Reviews

'Ryan writes the kind of no-frills prose that virtually dictates the pace at which it is read. We're told just as much as we need to know, and it never gets in the way of the action ... If you want a demonstration of how 400-odd pages can pass by in the wink of an eye, Ryan is your man.' Independent

'Ryan... became so expert as a modern thriller writer that it is easy to underestimate his talents...He chooses fiercely up-to-the-minute plots, and laces them with an exceptional eye for detail and insider knowledge...Fearsome and fast-moving...much more than a conventional thriller.' Daily Mail

Praise for Chris Ryan :

'Nobody takes you to the action better than Ryan, because he's the real deal, and this muscle-and-bone thriller will have fans blood pumping.' Evening Standard

'Chris Ryan has always been underrated as a novelist of ideas... a welter of treachery and mayhem.' Daily Telegraph

'A shockingly authentic tale to keep your adrenaline pumping as fast as the blood on the pages.' The Sun

'The pace never flags for a moment, and Ryan's insider knowledge is to the fore, but even the SAS's skills are no longer quite enough. New, less honourable talents are required. Bravery is not the only solution.' Daily Mail
