My favorite thriller authors are Robert Ludlum (Bourne novels), Ian Fleming (Bond) and now I have another favourite – De-ann Black (Riley novels). Read the first in the Riley series, The Strife of Riley which is a gritty thriller set in Scotland with a great hero, John Riley, and I’m looking forward to the next one – Guile. Definite five star book.
This book got off to a slow start but was worth persevering with. At times it almost felt like a boy's own adventure set in the 1940's then there would be a mention of the Scottish Parliament and I would remember that this was a fairly current story. It was a cracking read, full of hunky men rescuing people including a drunken fairy who had been thrown into the Clyde!

It would be great to have a few more stories featuring Riley and his friends.
Excellent read, waiting for the rest of the series to come on Kindle. Great character development, good story.
Fantastic thriller, loved the setting. Very atmospheric.
