Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

At the start of Britton's solid third thriller to feature CIA loose cannon Ryan Kealey (after The Assassin and The American), Kealey has been wandering the world, seeking solace after his girlfriend and fellow agent, Naomi Kharmai, walked out on him four months earlier. When his CIA handler Jonathan Harper tells Kealey he'll produce Naomi if Kealey will come back on the job, Kealey agrees. The job entails tracking down an Algerian terrorist, Amari Saifi, who's abducted several Americans in Pakistan. When Saifi ups the ante by capturing Brynn Fitzgerald, the acting U.S. secretary of state, the assignment shifts into high gear. The exciting kidnapping scene underscores Britton's strength—high-octane action—but the plot and characters adhere too closely to the rules and regulations of the genre. Hopefully, this obviously talented writer, who gets better with each book, will either amp up the complexity or drop Kealey and move on to new territory. (Mar.)

Review

"An impressive first novel...[Britton's] considerable writing talent brings this rip-roaring plot to life. Like Tom Clancy, he has produced a thriller that makes current terrorist threats all too real....Highly recommended."

More About the Author

Andrew Britton was born in Peterborough, England, in 1981. He spent his formative years in the UK and Camlough, County Armagh Ireland, a small village which is home to most of the family on his mother's side. In 1988, his family immigrated to the United States, taking up residence in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Just before his junior year of high school, Britton moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where he currently resides.

Britton graduated from Leesville Road High School in 1999 and immediately joined the U.S. Army. He served as a combat engineer for three years. During that time, he was assigned to the 1st Engineer Battalion at Fort Riley, Kansas. In the summer of 2001, he received orders for Korea, where he served with the 2ID, the famed 2nd Infantry Division. He was honorably discharged as a specialist in 2002.

Less than two months after separating from the armed forces, Britton began taking classes at Wake Technical Community College, transferring to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the fall of 2004. As an undergraduate at UNC, Britton studied economics and psychology. His education has been on hiatus for the past year, though he intends to return to school as soon as his schedule allows.

Apart from writing, Britton enjoys reading, traveling, and the occasional beer at the local bar.

Format: Hardcover
Four months ago CIA Agent Naomi Kharmai ended her relationship with CIA operative Ryan Kealey. He took it bad, walking off the job to roam aimlessly around the globe. However the agency needs Ryan's brand of service immediately; as the CIA leadership believes only his out of control lunacy can handle a particularly nasty cleaning job behind enemy lines.

His CIA handler Jonathan Harper offers the despondent agent a deal; he will present him Naomi if Kealey returns to work; Kealey accepts. Kealey is to find and take down Algerian terrorist Amari Saifi, who has kidnapped several Americans in Pakistan. As Kealey searches for his target, Saifi announces his presence by boldly abducting acting Secretary of State Brynn Fitzgerald.

In his third espionage thriller (see THE ASSASSIN and THE AMERICAN) Kealey remains out of control and fun to watch, but has lost some of his edge. Still this terrorist vs. antiterrorist High Noon tale is fast-paced and filled with action of a blow em up variety. Readers who enjoy a high octane tale will be pleased with Andrew Britton's latest escapade though it reads too similar to his hero's A book encounters.

Format: Hardcover
The story is fast paced with a good blend of factual people and places with fictional ones. I thought the kidnapping of the acting US secretary of state believable and well done. I had one tiny issue ...having not read the prior two books, I felt I was missing details to some of the characters, their relationships and their motivations which made pieces of the story feel incomplete. It's obviously a series which the author plans to continue with the opening left at the end. If you're interested in this book, I'd recommend reading the prior two first.

Format: Audio CD
Performed by professional theater, radio, television, and film veteran J. Charles, The Invisible is an unabridged audiobook of suspense. Following covert counterterrorism operative Ryan Kealey, The Invisible is set amid record-breaking tensions between Pakistan and India. When an ambush near Islamabad causes the secretary of state disappears, Kealey must team up with British-born analyst Naomi Kharmai - but Kharmai appears to be gradually losing personal stability the closer Kealey gets to his target! A gripping saga of deceit and betrayal, with nuclear tensions in the balance. 13 CDs, approximately 15 hours.

Andrew Britton did a wonderful job despicting Kealey as an operative. I loved the novel and found the ending to be really great with a lot of room for asequel. It pains me that he died so young because I saw another great political thriller author in the making.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
THE INVISIBLE, the third installment in Andrew Britton's brilliant Ryan Kealey series, is perfect winter reading. Pick this one up when there's snow on the ground, a killer wind chill and you have the day off. You have nowhere to be anyway, so at least you won't feel guilty about staying put for several hours as you read the latest novel in what is arguably the most realistic thriller series going.

THE INVISIBLE begins with the sudden and violent kidnapping of a group of U.S. tourists in Pakistan. The instigator of this deed is Amari Saifi, a terrorist who has been on the U.S. most wanted list for several years. The incident causes Jonathan Harper, the Deputy Director of the CIA, to seek out and recruit Ryan Kealey for yet another mission --- to rescue the hostages and neutralize Saifi. Following the events chronicled in THE ASSASSIN, Kealey has been on a world-beating walkabout and wants nothing to do with Harper (or the CIA for that matter).

However, he is reluctantly drawn back in when Harper produces Naomi Kharmai, the woman who Kealey has been trying to forget, even though he can't. The opportunity to work with her and be with her again is too much for him to resist. But Kealey quickly comes to realize that Kharmai, like himself, is badly damaged, to the extent that her presence may jeopardize the mission.

Meanwhile, Saifi has upped the ante by making one of the boldest moves ever perpetrated against the U.S. --- she kidnaps the U.S. Secretary of State while on a diplomatic visit in Pakistan. Kealey now has a new priority: rescue the Secretary of State by any means necessary.

Well, I have recently finished reading the latest book from Andrew Britton, The Invisible.I have to say, Andrew was most certainly a talented writer to have begun at such an early age. I agree with most others on here in that it is highly recommended to read the prior 2 books before picking up on this newest release.

I have come to enjoy the Ryan Kealey universe, and I feel I can place this series alongside Vince Flynn and Brad Thor's novels. I have to say though, the only reason this didn't get a full five stars was because I feel the ending didn't keep pace with the rest of the book, in that it felt unfinished. I don't want to give away any spoilers but I feel that in this book, as well as the prior two books, the character of Naomi is in constant turmoil, in that she is changing from one book to another it is like introducing a new character.

With Andrew's untimely death, I wonder where this series will go. I feel it can go on if they find a good ghost writer who can write in Andrew's style. It has happened with Robert Ludlum, hopefully it will happen here because I for one definitely can't wait to pick up the next copy to find out if the ending of this book is as it appear or if it is misleading us.That is all I will say about that so as not to give away any of the plot.
