Following an invite to the blog tour for the upcoming Going Rogue by Neil Lancaster, I thought I would read the first in the series staring Tom Novak
Tom came from Bosnia as a 12 year old orphan, taken in by foster parents, now a police officer, Novak is a cold calculating character with a strong sense of justice.
When an undercover job goes badly wrong he finds himself having to go ‘dark’ to escape the Serbian mafia and corrupt police.
A blistering adrenaline rush of action adventure follows, which takes us from the streets of London to the Scottish highlands.
Packed full of pounding exploits, bad guys and violence, guns and more, this is a Crackerjack. A real powder keg thriller.
Tom is incomparable to others in this genre, any similarities to Jack Reacher and the like are far and wide. He is his own indomitable character, cold as ice, he’s a bit of a machine but you can feel and see his humanity. He’s one cool guy.
With a quality backing cast of characters, great settings and descriptions of the weapons and the fights this one kept me glued and enthralled until the end and I can’t wait to get on with Going Rogue to find out what happens with Novak, I think there might well be a lot more to come from this character
Highly recommend actions filled romp!
