As far as plot, home-grown terrorists detonate bombs at “soft targets” all around England with the goal of engendering the greatest amounts of terror. (These are not military targets, but places where civilians congregate). The Major Crimes Unit, an anti-terrorist group must stop the attacks.
What makes this book so great is the character Sarah Stone, a former army captain. During her time in Afghanistan, her vehicle was torn apart by an IED and her entire squad killed by terrorists. Sarah received grievous injuries, particularly to her face, leaving her with gruesome scars. Almost simultaneously her husband was killed by friendly fire. She has a lot to be angry about and understandably walks around with a major chip on her shoulder. During the course of the story, Sarah confronts her past and comes to some sort of terms with it.
Although the story is resolved, the book ends on a cliffhanger, setting up the plot for the next book in the series. It says a lot about how much I liked this book that I immediately bought it, despite the editing errors described above.
Soft target is different genre for Wright and is a great action story. The characters are unique and well-developed. Danger and bravery are the underlying currents of the the narrative. I bought the 2nd installment in the series the minute I finished Soft Target. it's a good read!
I liked it, I'll definitely read the sequels when they come out in the future.
Soft Target by Iain Rob Wright is a taut, suspenseful thriller that follows Sarah’s adventures as the Major Crimes Unit enlists her service to stop further bloodshed. Crisp dialogue and superb characterizations mark this Jack Reacher-style story. It’ll keep you turning pages until the climax.
