The highly descriptive writing style is quite exhausting to read for this reason I took a very long break before picking up “Last Light”. This is why I am so behind with this series.
Of course this book is not for everyone after all life for a Secret Intelligence Operator is far from being easy. In “Last Light”, Nick is given an ultimatum when an assassination attempt goes wrong: Kill the target in Panama by last light Friday or Kelly will be killed. What choice ...more

The fourth in a series of Nick Stone thrillers (after the well-received Firewall), this one gets off to an exciting if typical start as freelance assassin and ex-British SAS agent Stone orchestrates a precision team hit on a high-level target attending a snobby dessert social on the banks of the Thames. The target is to be identified by the team leader, Yes Man, who is to tap the victim on the left shoulder and wait for the snipers to do the dirty work. At the moment of c

Although it was alright and kept the pages turning well enough, I found the plotline to be a bit tedious in places and some of the characters felt a bit flat.

I'll try another of his before I write him off though.
If anything, they're entertaining and easy to visualize, something I feel does add a lot to any book.
Spannend boek tot aan de laatste letter.
Ook zit er wat drama's in verwerkt.
Wel een actieboek. 4 uit 5 sterren.
Exciting book to the last letter.
Also there is some drama in this book.
However, also an action book. 4 out of 5 Stars.
