He had promised himself that one day he would return to Mozambique, recover Smudge's remains and bring them home to his family. But political unrest and others factors have kept him from fulfilling his promise. Now, finally, his chance has arrived, but it comes at a price. Barbara Sutherland, Britain's Prime Minister, will clear the diplomatic red tape and provide logistics for Gabriel to search for his fallen friend, but first he must assassinate the Finance Minister of Zimbabwe, Philip Agambe. She explains that Agambe is corrupt and funneling funds to terrorist groups, so even though assassinating government officials defies international protocols, an exception should be made because of his terrorist ties. Gabriel reluctantly accepts the assignment, but is very uneasy about it.
With his friend, MI5 agent Brittany Falskog joining him, Gabriel flies to Africa, where things go off the rails very quickly. A stunning revelation by Agambe followed by attempts to kill him and Britta force Gabriel to draw back, reassess the entire mission and sort truth from lies. His search for the truth leads him to Hong Kong where he revisits his past, then on to the US and finally back to the U.K. and Africa.
In each book in the series, Andy Maslen takes the reader into Gabriel's past to deepen our emotional connection to the character. Without deviating from the plot or slowing the action down, Maslen makes this psychological investment a vital part of the story that only enhances the reading experience. I only wish I could give it more stars!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, but also purchased a copy for my collection.
So it is with Andy Maslen. "Trigger Point" (the first Gabriel Wolfe novel) was a good read, but not great. I gave it four stars. "First Casualty" is a result of continued improvement over the course of four books. I wish I could give it 4.8 stars, because Sandford is the top of the heap to me and he gets five stars. The plot has some twists and turns, and the characters and the plot development are first-rate. It's a good read. I've read the first four Gabriel Wolfe novels and am about to buy the fifth.
