Fast paced and a bit different. Definitely recommending this one. A hero to fall for or want to be (depending on your preferences). I read this very quickly as it just gripped me and made me want to read and read.

Like many of these tough man takes on the world books it is remarkably far fetched but Bale manages to make you not care. The characters are fun and believable and you root for the good guys and the victims and love/hate the baddies as you are meant to.

A beautifully crafted b
It took me a little while to get into this one but I really enjoyed it. This was a well-planned out plot and the characters were developed in a way in which to get you involved in the whole story.

I listened to the audiobook and, in spite of my previous thoughts about his work, Paul Panting made a great job of bringing this story to life.

If you liked this one, then try Seige or Dead Man's Gift by Simon Kernick, whose character Scope is along the lines of Joe Clayton with similar thrills along t
A spine chilling tale of greed, betrayal and the terror it can bring. Innocent people caught up in a feud between 2 evil men who think of nothing or nobody but themselves and what they want. It took one flawed but decent man to try and upset their plans and protect the people he had grown to care about.
a very good thriller and held my attention, even if one has to accept, like a previous reviewer, that the plot may or may not be totally believable, it did overall keep the suspense going
It was an okay read. I found it very predictable and long aticipated the ending.
I found my mind wandering and then coming back, I took no pains to retrace what I had lost, easily moving on from where I "came back" to the story.
If you are looking for an easy read for a plane ride or maybe to even fill in a goodreads book challenge, this would prob fit your bill.
No brain challenge here.
Ein ziemlich durchschnittlicher, mit Stereotypen vollgepackter Roman. Die Protagonisten sind ziemlich durchsichtig und schablonenhaft. Von Spannung kann man nicht wirklich sprechen. Der Schreibstilb ist ganz ok, die Kampfbeschreibungen ausgenommen, diese sind grauenhaft ausgeführt. Zwei Sterne, weil es dennoch schlechtere Romane gibt
I enjoyed the story, though felt the idea of an isolated island being taken over by criminals did not reach it's full potential, and there were rarely any moments of real tension. I listened to this as an audiobook, and didn't think the narration did it justice, which may have lost it a star.
I liked it better than his previous book but there were still a few too many double crosses at the end. Overkill
Good stuff. An exciting page turn'er. Will read more of Tom's work.
Really good story. Didn't want to put it down.
