LoveReading Expert Review of The Angry Sea

Oh wow, be prepared for a high-octane, thrilling ride, stuffed full to the brim with action.

This is a "throw yourself in and let yourself be carried on a rolling monster of a wave" type of read. I knew I was in completely safe hands, both in terms of credibility and storyline. It is no secret that I loved James Deegan’s debut Once A Pilgrim, it is one of my star books for 2018 so I had high expectations for The Angry Sea. The book starts with a horrific terrorist attack and John Carr vaults from relaxing on a beach into immediate action. If you haven’t yet met John Carr, do go back and start at the beginning with Once A Pilgrim, this is a series worth being in at the get-go. Carr is an unapologetically full-on action figure capable of both icy cold decision making and roaring hot reaction. The author is himself a former Sergeant Major in the SAS and was described as one of the most operationally experienced SAS men of his era. I didn’t once stop or question what I was reading, I just sank into the short snappy chapters, I breathed in, consumed, and lived in every moment. The Angry Sea is a full on gutsy, action-packed read that delivers one heck of a punch, highly recommended and one of my picks of the month.

The Angry Sea Synopsis

'Brutal and brilliant' Tom Marcus, author of SOLDIER SPY Former SAS Sergeant Major John Carr is relaxing on a Spanish beach, when a man with dark eyes attracts his attention. Fixated on a group of young Britons, the man doesn't notice Carr and soon moves on. Within the hour, the Costa del Sol will be plunged into one of the most audacious and horrifying terrorist attacks Europe has ever seen. In a co-ordinated strike, armed men storm both the beach and a cruise ship anchored further up the coast. But the terrorists - hiding personal greed under the veil of religious extremism - have an even bolder plan. Constrained by the sensitive political situation, MI6 and the Prime Minister must confront the possibility of leading a secret operation against a brutal enemy. And then find the right man to head it . . . Enter John Carr. Praise for The Angry Sea: 'Packed with authentic detail about the defence and intelligence communities, it rattles along at a furious pace, never takings its foot off the accelerator. A terrific story splendidly told' Daily Mail '**** . . . [A] top actioner' Weekend Sport '[Deegan] knows how to tell an unnervingly realistic story - and The Angry Sea is involving from the start and gripping to the end' Choice Praise for James Deegan: 'You couldn't make it up. Brilliant' Jeffrey Archer 'Inevitably Deegan will be compared to Andy McNab and Chris Ryan, but he adds his own brand of contemporary authenticity. Carr is a hero for our times.' Daily Mail 'As close as it gets to the real thing' Mark 'Billy' Billingham MBE. Former SAS Warrant Officer and star of TV's SAS Who Dares Wins 'James Deegan writes with masterful authority and unsurpassed experience as he transports the reader deep into the troubles of Northern Ireland - and then brings them back up to date with a dramatic bang' Chantelle Taylor, Combat Medic and author of Battleworn
