A new favorite author!

While there are a few over the top moments, our guy is good at his core and believable, not some slapstick excuse for a spy. Excellent entertainment that keeps your attention, moves fast and has twists. Also, like life, it’s not cut and dry with explanations for everything. I’m going to get all of his works, this was the second, and I’m quite happy with it, I also like the Brit terminology, the way things are described is a fun change from American slang. The narrator is nothing short of brilliant at his job, he IS the character. Very well done in my opinion.

wow just lame

the author was definitely living out his fantasy of being raped in prison by a baton. the story was slow and boring so he had to try to spice it up with sex and rape. just wow it was a huge let down.

Captivating, spellbinding with an unexpected twist

The author leads you down a twisting journey that will keep you spellbound throughout the whole story! The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the story to life!

OK but

This story was OK but I wouldn't decribe it as a page turner. The narrator was a little off putting for me.

British ignorance of America

The premise of the story is good as well as the main character but I get sick and tired of British authors Chastising America for problems they know nothing about

Another great book from Rob Sinclair

I’ve always really enjoyed Robs books and this is no different. Ryker is a great character that I hope goes on for a long time

Good second Ryker

Good second book in the Ryker series. always a lot of double crossing taking place. Going to start the third book.

Same old

The only part I found very good was the prison bit.
Otherwise, a bit boring and repetitive.

Would suit an all action fan

Strangely old fashioned, deeply masculine with few and lightly drawn female characters strangely redolent of the writing of the fifties- at least that’s the 1950’s.
I didn’t finish this, it held no interest. I’m glad I used a credit, but am sad I wasted one.

Couldn't finish it

I couldn't get to the end of this book. The first book,The Red Cobra, was really good so I though I'd get another. However this is a ridiculous story which seems to consist of violence upon violence and little else. I say story, that's loose. What I liked about the Red Cobra was the strong women in it. This book reverts to using women as sex objects with the occasional prostitute thrown in for good measure. It's quite offensive.

I stuck with it

I am a fan of the narrator, his delivery is always polished, James Ryker is a clone of so many deep undercover, chip on the shoulder agents, we must bump in to one every time we get on a bus.

Some parts of the book really entertained but it became laboured in the end, I didn't really care "who dun it" but I will read/listen to the next book and hope that is just "second season syndrome"
