"Out OF The Shadows" is a thrill ride you won't soon forget! Tim does a fantastic job with this thriller and action packed story line and introduces you to the main characters with ease. But when the story takes off? You'll keep reading and turning pages until dawn! Great Series.

Wonderful book! I haven't read such a thriller in a long time. I had to force myself to put it away and get some work done! the plot is well thought out and intriguing. However, I thought the ending was a bit rushed, making Olsen look demented and out of control. cant wait to read more of this saga!

An exciting and thrilling read, both book 1 and book 2. It was very descriptive and gave me a good insight into the characters and places. I found that I wanted to read more after Book 1, and Book 2 certainly did not disappoint! I recommend these books and am looking forward to more from this series and author.

Shelves: thriller, assassin
On the whole, I liked this book - enough to order the second in the series, Underground Murmurs.
How believable it is, might be another matter. Seems there is this fellow who is entirely ruthless, who has managed to kill hundreds of British, American, French, and God knows what other government agents. Could one man cause such havoc without being discovered? I don't know; indeed one has to become aware that one really doesn't know much.
At 77 I can now say I have been an avid reader for 70 years!

Out of the Shadows was a great surprise. I am an avid reader of Daniel Silva and David Baldacci and was looking for another espionage/CIA book to read while awaiting their latest novels.
What I found was a jam-packed spy novel full of intrigue, that leaves one wondering just how bad one human being can be to another, i.e. Akira. Politics, as usual, are corrupt from the upper echelon down through the ranks. I could not wait for the story to end, but was not disappointed that a second book would fo

Murder is boring....

I've found that reading a murder mystery, or having one read to me (Text to Speech) puts me to sleep; I missed several chapters one afternoon. Give me a good case of espionage any day; FBI, CIA, MI6, etc.

One forgotten again in my kindle. Confused me with the dead wife talking to him 🤔. The story didn’t “grab” me.

Boring, repeating the same stuff, too much interior monologue, violence for the sake of violence, characters do not feel real.

Tim Jopling's Out of the Shadows gave me a glimpse of the life of spies. The thrill, the adventure and the dangers associated with them were all brought out well.

What touched my heart was the way human relationships have been depicted in this story. Be it Deane and Olsen, Kurt and his wife, Drake, Akira and Madeline, all the characters bring out the beauty of emotions in their relationships in every scene that they are present. Deane and Olsen, and Akira and Madeline are the two sets of people t

A high octane thriller from the top drawer. Can't wait to read the next story. Topical, fast-paced and well observed.

My name is Tim Jopling and I love any spy and espionage books, TV, or films! People always say you write about what you know and although I've never had any personal experience (I've worked in the IT sector for 16 years!) I've read a lot of novels (you can't really beat the original Ian Fleming novels in my opinion) and watched as many TV shows and films as I possibly can. I'm a
