I could hardly contain my excitement when I finally reached the middle of my To Be Read pile of books, and Savage Payback stared back at me. I was apprehensive because it was the third book in the series and I worried if I would be able to pick up enough background information on the characters to understand the plot.
I had nothing to worry about. Savage Payback passed with flying colors as its own stand alone novel. It swept me into a world filled with the violence of drug cartels and the callousness of Drug Enforcement Officers, Special Forces, and the kind of people that kill for money. Beware, the novel is violent, and the descriptions are not for the faint of heart.
The plot is quick, and from the beginning, the reader is thrust into the action when an attack on multiple jewelry stores explodes from the pages. The mystery of who was behind the attack develops at a steady pace. I was pleasantly surprised by many of the twists and turns which helped to move the story forward.
I love characters, and Gallacher’s Jack Calder is one of the best. Jack and his crew from the ISP (an international security firm manned by ex-SAS and other police/special forces personnel) are called in to solve the theft of the jewels and the murders involved in the attack. It doesn’t take long for the reader to find out that the ISP is also targeted.
When an attack is successful against Jack’s wife, Mae Ling, the story pivots and the reader is taken on SAVAGE PAYBACK (Jack Calder Crime Series #3) The suspense was superb! Now, I need to start from the beginning of the series and learn all there is to know about Jack Calder.
Very. Yes, there’s violence in it. Even a lot. It’s not over descriptive. And you get what you pay for. This book, the theme of the Jack Calder series without violence? Don’t think that would be possible. It came at the right moment. Although it was already waiting for 12 months on my Kindle app. It’s just good. A perfect distraction
What I didn’t like
With a little spoiler alert. One of the members of ISP gets killed by a car bomb. Near the end of the book. He’s not checking his car before starting. Although he knows that their main enemy at the moment is quite ‘handy’ with explosives. And that he will attack them again. It’s possible but with the description of all the guys from ISP. It’s kind of hard to swallow. Sure, the guy made a mistake. It’s just a bit complicated to accept that he made this, let’s call it a ‘beginner’s mistake’.
Would I recommend it?
If you’re even just a bit interested in thrillers. Give it a go. Seumas knows exactly what he’s writing about. And not like his blog, it’s in plain English. ;-). 17 out of 20 points
The book moves quickly with plenty of the action that this genre demands. It features believable characters that leave lasting impressions. It's well-written, well-plotted, and well-timed.
My only criticism would extend to the author's attention to relatively insignificant details (there are no direct flights between El Paso, Texas and London, for instance). Minor, yes, but it nags a reader who knows the facts!
If you like crime or 'action' thrillers, you'll like this book.
