Review

NO REMORSE has more action, more adventure and more thrills per page than any novel I have recently read. It combines intricate plotting, flawless execution, serious subject matter and lightening pacing with page turning action, a charismatic hero and female characters who are as strong and dedicated as their male counterparts.
(Red Rock Bookworm)

From the Author

KIRKUS REVIEW OF NO REMORSE:
Walkley pits CIA agents against a maniacal Saudi prince intent on starting World War III in this debut thriller.
Delta Force operative Lee McCloud, aka Mac, finds himself in Mexico, trying to rescue two teenage girls kidnapped by a drug cartel. But things go from bad to worse when the villains don't play by the rules. Framed for two murders he didn't commit, Mac has two options: go to prison or go to work for a CIA black-op group run by the devious Wisebaum, who hacks into terrorists' bank accounts and confiscates millions of dollars. 
However, there's more going on than meets the eye; Saudi Prince Khalid is in possession of nuclear canisters, with which he hopes to alter world history. Khalid also dabbles in trafficking young women, and harvesting and selling human organs. When Wisebaum's black-op team targets Khalid's father, the action becomes even more intense. 
With so many interweaving subplots--kidnapped girls, Israeli undercover agents, nuclear weapons and a secret underwater hideout--it could be easy to lose track of what's going on. But the author's deft handling of the material ensures that doesn't occur; subplots are introduced at the appropriate junctures and, by story's end, all are accounted for and neatly concluded. 
Mac is portrayed as a rough and ready action-hero, yet his vulnerabilities will evoke empathy in readers. He finds a love interest in Tally, a hacker whose personality is just quirky enough to complement his own. 
All Walkley's primary characters are fleshed out and realistic, with the exception of Wisebaum--a malicious, double-dealing, back-stabber of the worst ilk; the reader is left wondering about Wisebaum's motivations behind such blatant treachery.
Despite this, Walkley's beefy prose and rousing action sequences deliver a thriller to satisfy any adrenaline addict.

Format: Paperback
As an obsessive reader of the thriller/military/crime genres, I am very excited to have discovered Ian Walkley. If you, like me, have read everything out there from early Richard Stark to the latest Lee Child, you know we need more! We get more from newcomer Ian Walkley, and his novel No Remorse. I ran across No Remorse and was immediately drawn in. There is violent action from page one. In fact, I had been reading Zero Day by David Balducci and had to put it aside until I had finished No Remorse. The evildoers are truly despicable and our flawed hero Lee McCloud is the no-nonsense tough guy perfect for punishing them. As a bonus, this thriller is a time capsule of this decade, with many references to geopolitical happenings as timely as today's headlines. Whereas other heroes such as John Sanford's Lucas Davenport have softened and lost their punch over the years, Walkley's McCloud should be expected to keep on brutalizing bad guys for years to come. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
No Remorse, start to finish, is a roller coaster ride of a read. Lee McCloud or Mac is shanghaied into a covert branch military operation after he botches a kidnapping rescue. Saving the young girls that have been abducted remains his main objective as he travels the world from Mexico, London, Paris, Dubai and onto a mysterious island nation worthy of a James Bond adventure. It is here that Khalid Yubani has set up his main operation that is so evil and vile that it makes his sex slave and human trafficking businesses seem bland in comparison.

Mac is aided by Tally, a genius hacker, whose job is to empty the bank accounts of al-Qaeda agents and the global militant Islamist friends of Osama bin Laden. Khalid turns out to be considered rogue to the inner families of al-Qaeda so the paths of Mac and Tally's operations cross building mystery, intrigue and conspiracy like none I've read in recent years.

I've seen many other reviewers compare this first novel of Ian Walkley to those of Tom Clancy, Lee Child, and Robert Ludlum. I could not agree more. There are so many plots and sub-plots but Ian is able to keep the reader fully absorbed in the action without confusion. I'm looking forward to more from this author and would recommend this, his first novel, to one and all.

This debut thriller by Ian Walkley has all the ingredients of a gripping page-turner - non-stop action, compelling plot and well-rounded characters. His style is concise and polished, yet evocative when it needs to be and he weaves all the strands of the narrative together very deftly. The pace never lags, so be warned: it will keep you up at night! It also comes with a teaser for the next novel which I'm looking forward to reading. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
More than a book about terrorism or middle-eastern culture, more than a novel about the slave trade or covert operations, NO REMORSE is a book that is and offers the it's readers more of everything. It has more action, more adventure and more thrills per page than any novel I have recently read.

NO REMORSE is a novel as strong as the hero's and heroines residing within its pages and works on many levels by combining intricate plotting, flawless execution, serious subject matter and lightening pacing This is not the type of book you go to for in depth philosophical discussions. This is where you go for pure escapism, an action packed story and a riveting reading experience.

In this tale of plots and sub-plots author Ian Walkley has managed to create a gritty tale featuring a former Delta Forces commander, Lee "Mac" McCloud, whose personal rescue mission is side-tracked by a government agent named Derek. Faintly reminiscent of Lee Child's protagonist Jack Reacher Walkley's McCloud, like Reacher, is a man you would want on your side. Both characters are cut from the same cloth with each possessing a military background, a relatively quiet personal nature, as well as an innate intelligence and a ram-rod straight moral compass. It's a pretty safe bet that Reacher would have been a willing recruit for this adventure that moves from it's beginning in Mexico to its explosive ending "somewhere in the Middle-East".

I will not go into the details of the story since it would ruin the reading experience for you. Suffice to say, if you are a lover of books with plenty of page turning action, a charismatic hero and female characters who are as strong and dedicated as their male counterparts this is a book for you.

Format: Paperback
The plan was to let the two fathers make the ransom payoff in the valley a few miles outside of Tijuana. Two hundred thousand should buy their freedom as that is what the kidnappers wanted. At least the dads know that backup is watching them and ready to help. All they have to do is give the bad guys the money and get their daughters, Danni and Sophia.

The kidnappers take the money and then want to change the deal. Instead of giving them Danni and Sophia they offer two other teen girls. Understandably the dads want their own daughters back. Things go bad quickly and Delta Force Operator Lee McCloud and his team watch the kidnappers kill the two girls they had been holding in the van. The dead girls were somebody's children who were murdered solely because the dads wanted their own daughter back. In the aftermath, while they do have a lead to the kidnapped girls, McCloud and his team are in a world of trouble with the United States Military.

Facing court martial and prison time for himself and others of his team, McCloud agrees to take a discharge from the Army after pleading guilty to some lesser charges. He also agrees to go to work as a contractor attached to some sort of vague shadowy unit pursing various terrorists and their monies. While they have their own stated agenda, Lee "Mac" McCloud has his own and that is saving his goddaughter, Sophia, and her friend, Danni.

NO REMORSE spans the globe in a complicated read that touches on sex slavery, organ harvesting, Islamic terrorism, politics, and various other themes. Numerous characters are involved as are exotic locals, powerful money interests, and nightmarish weapons.
