5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you James Grenton, January 12, 2012
This review is from: Black Coke (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed Grenton's last book (The Somali Doctrine), and bought this one hoping it would be as good - I was not disappointed! I was really carried along by the plot, and found it very hard to put down. The action is fast-paced and brutal, and completely unpredictable. Can someone please turn this into a movie now? Daniel Craig would make a great Nathan Kershner!

4.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read - more please!, July 7, 2011
I have always been a fan of Robert Ludlum's earlier books; you could almost feel the pain suffered by his characters, making their inevitable brutal revenge all the more sweet. Grenton's characters are certainly made to suffer, but this is a more grown-up affair than Ludlum's Bourne trilogy - probably a reflection of the moral ambiguity of the modern world in contrast to the clear distinctions of the Cold War. There are no forgone conclusions here, and this is not a comfortable ride for the reader; there are some genuinely shocking moments, and it is hard not to feel tainted by the corruption and compromise of the main characters and events.
I hope there's more where this came from.
