Ryker wants blood, and one way or another he’ll get it...
Still tormented by the disappearance of his wife, ex-intelligence agent James Ryker sets out on a personal mission of revenge, prepared to go to any lengths in search of the truth.
The trail takes him from the crystal waters of Mexico’s Caribbean coast, back to a place he thought he would never set foot again – his country of birth, England. But there he discovers more than even he bargained for. Stumbling across a terrorist attack targeted against his old employers – the secretive Joint Intelligence Agency -the faint clues to many events in his recent past are all seemingly linked to one mysterious character; The Silver Wolf.
But just who is the Silver Wolf, and why is he hell bent on punishing not just Ryker, but his closest allies at the JIA too?
Has Ryker finally met his match?
The Silver Wolf is a globe-trotting thriller that sees James Ryker at his hard-nosed best as he fights the ghosts of his past. As skilled as Jason Bourne, as no-nonsense as Jack Reacher, James Ryker delivers in another heart-pounding thriller.
I am a huge fan of the James Ryker series and after how The Black Hornet finished, which is the second book in the series, I have been dying to catch back up with Ryker to see what happens next.
It is definitely best to read these books in order. Especially as Ryker is on a revenge mission to find out who is behind his wife’s disappearance.
The story takes us to different locations. It’s definitely like a James Bond movie where some parts are set in London and then we are taken to other exotic and fabulous locations where most of us will probably never travel to. It certainly has everything you would expect from a brilliant spy thriller and more.
I have to admit to reading some of this from behind my hands. There are some pretty gruesome parts where I wanted to unsee what I had just read, even Ryker is shocked in one bit which if he is shocked when he is used to seeing horrific things in his line of work then there was no hope for me. Even though it shocked me, it also thrilled me and I couldn’t turn the pages quick enough.
The Silver Wolf is an exciting and thrilling read that sent my heart racing. If a gripping story line with bags of action isn’t enough to tempt you then believe me when I say The Silver Wolf himself will. It was more than worth reading for him alone, which is saying something as I love James Ryker but then there’s nothing better than an exceptional baddie either. An absolute must read for fans of the series.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
