Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Sullivan skillfully handles familiar plot elements and characters in his exciting second Robin Monarch novel (after 2012's Rogue). While the U.S. secretary of state, Agnes Lawton, is secretly negotiating with the foreign ministers of China and India aboard a freighter in the South China Sea, armed terrorists seize the ship. The group claiming responsibility, the Sons of Prophecy, demands the release of all political prisoners in the U.S., China, and India, as well as a ransom of $500 million from each country. Meanwhile, the man pulling the intricate strings of the operation, wealthy Cantonese triad chief Long Chan-Juan (aka the Moon Dragon), has a multilayered plan that he expects will secure him billions of dollars and immense power. Ex-CIA agent Monarch and Chinese Ministry of State Security agent Song Le have less than five days to save Lawton and the others. Thriller fans fond of high-stakes rescue scenarios will be more than satisfied. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Oct.) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Sullivan’s fine follow-up to the stellar Rogue (2012) continues the adventures of former CIA operative and master thief Robin Monarch. A secret meeting on a tanker in the South China Sea brings together the foreign ministers of China and India, along with the U.S. secretary of state. They are meeting to discuss a sinister project that has been given the green light, but before the details are on the table, the tanker is raided, and the various envoys are kidnapped. An outrageous ransom demand forces the U.S. president to make a bold move and hire Monarch to stage a rescue. For the operation to be successful, Monarch must work with allies from the other countries, but can he trust them? Sullivan has created a fine adventure-thriller hero in Monarch, who fits perfectly into the Ludlum or Vince Flynn mode. The action and the surprises are nonstop. Readers will demand the next one in the series, pronto. --Jeff Ayers --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My first time reading this author. I was not disappointed, page turner kept me reading. The main character Monarch is a semi-retired thief that had worked for the government. He is called back by the President himself to help find the US Secretary of State, Indian and Chinese ministers who have been taken hostage while on a secret meeting between the three nations. All before a new US President is elected and the influence of a wealthy Hong Kong Triad leader. All makes a fun and fast pace read for the main character is running against the clock and must find them before they are killed live via the internet.

I have my own system which sometimes seems a little harsh even to me for action/detective/spy novels. A 5 star has to be a classic in its genre or inordinately special, often books by people like something by Raymond Chandler, Hammett, Rex Stout, Ian Fleming, Adam Hall, John Le Carre, Frederick Forsyth and in more modern time Block, Robert Parker, Robert Crais, David Lindsey (now writing as Paul Harper), but those are all just selections; there are others. Four stars are books that I think are very well written and I really enjoy, but I wouldn't quite call a classic. The Vince Flynn Mitch Rapp novels fit in here for me, and though he can be close to a 5, he is the standard I usually use for modern action novels. If I don't think a book is at the same level as his (and, he, sadly, died a relatively young man of cancer) I give it 3 stars, and I probably would not finish one that I thought less of than that. 3 stars are for what I think are run of the mill action novels by people like Brad Thor, Steve Berry, Lee Child and now that I tried him, Mark Sullivan.

I liked the book though. I turned the pages and finished it in a few hours over two days. It was fun, but it's just same old same old. I like same old same old for the most part and that is what you are likely going to get with him. Robin is a good character. Sullivan is a good writer. I could follow the story (that's not always true, of course, in any genre), the bad guys were interesting and not completely interchangeable and he had a crew that piqued my interest, but weren't developed that much - mostly by stereotype. It had a decent if well traveled plot. He didn't bed any incredibly gorgeous woman he met within a few days (like Lee Child's Reacher), which always makes me yawn.

If you are not yet addicted to Mark Sullivan’s Robin Monarch series, you will be after reading OUTLAW. Following last year’s ROGUE, OUTLAW reads like a mash-up of Terry and the Pirates (extra points if you know what I’m talking about) and Mission: Impossible (points deducted if you don’t), with enough explosions, twists and turns to fill three books with bodies left over. What’s not to love?

One need not have read ROGUE (or the three Monarch eNovellas that have preceded OUTLAW) to enjoy this latest installment from the jump. It begins with a clandestine, off-site meeting of the U.S. Secretary of State and her counterparts from India and China that goes seriously wrong when a group of Islamic pirates with delusions of grandeur --- they call themselves the “Sons of Prophecy” --- kidnap the trio and hold them for ransom. If the respective governments of the kidnappees don’t pony up within a week, the Sons are going to start lopping off their heads live on the Internet. This occurs the week before the U.S. presidential elections and obviously is going to have some effect one way or the other on things if the situation is not resolved, and quickly. The President puts the call out for Monarch, who agrees --- for a hefty sum --- to bring the Secretary back alive.

Naturally, however, there is a lot more going on here than a bunch of lowlifes with AK-47s behaving badly. The man behind the curtain is a crime lord whose name translates to the Moon Dragon and whose purpose in having the three power players kidnapped go far beyond anything as mundane as influencing a presidential election. India and China are not going to stand idly by, either; as a result, Monarch finds himself in the uncharacteristic position of working with someone who is not on his hand-picked team.

I really enjoyed the previous work in this series, but I must admit that my interest waned and I moved on to another book before I ended this one. The writing is great, characters strong & everything else was pretty much there, so I should have stuck it out. Why didn't I? I'm not sure. If I could write this well, I'd be more than happy.

I read a great deal - often with more than one book on-the-go (typically one fiction yarn and another non-fiction heavyweight). So I'm suspecting that for whatever reason, I'm probably the variable that's changed.

Rather than being dissatisfied, I think I probably found something else that caught my attention and so I wandered off down a different pathway.

Would I recommend buying the book? I've you've read the previous work and enjoyed it, I'd certainly suggest it's worth getting (even better would be to preview some of the book and make your own mind up).

Would I not recommend buying it? No, there's nothing that makes this in any way a "poor" or "bad" story.

There are far less enjoyable books that have cost me a lot more - so, for my final verdict? It's remaining in my reader - I'll go back later and either finish it or re-read (and I suspect, I'll probably enjoy it immensely).
