Searching for the assassin who killed his friend, Gabriel and his partner Eli find a lead to the Kuznitsa, one of Russia’s most powerful crime cartels led by a man named Max, who has been trying to get rid of Gabriel for several years. Upon reaching Russia, Gabriel and Eli connect with Tatyana Garin, a Russian oligarch whom Gabriel befriended in London and who provided help on several missions in the past. Learning that Tatyana also has an interest in seeing an end to Max and the Kuznitsa, a plan is set in motion. With a first strike against Kuznitsa in eastern Russia successfully sompleted, Gabriel and Eli return to Tatyana’s dacha to plot their next move. When Eli is called away on a family emergency, Gabriel goes on alone and off the rails in mindless fury. The takedown of Kuznitsa is the main plot, but it is interspersed with a subplot involving a Colombian drug cartel being targeted by a mysterious female Chinese assassin and snippets of Gabriel’s written testimonial as he continues to try to make sense of his life.
As usual, Maslen amps up the action as he deepens the emotional payoff that, in this case, builds to a firebomb of a final confrontation and a closing testament that reveals a seismic shift in our haunted hero. This is a true tour de force that will leave you gasping for more
This book has nonstop action and left me thinking that Gabriel needs a long vacation on a secluded island, along with his partner, before he goes out to rid the world of more bad guys. Of course, knowing Gabriel’s past, he will find adventure wherever he is. I have read all the Gabriel Wolfe thrillers and always look forward to the next one.
Thanks, Andy Maslen, for another great adventure!
Action filled as with the prior novels. The pace is fast and energetic. If you like fast paced novels this is the one for you. Keep 'em coming, Mr. Maslen !!!
Confusion reigns from the first few paragraphs when someone is shot and an ambulance magically arrives seemingly seconds later...?

Although this book is gorey and violent in places it’s more story led than the others and, in my opinion, is Andy Maslen’s best yet.
As always the story revolves around the strength and resilience of the main character Gabriel Wolfe, however the surrounding cast are really well drawn. That aspect combined with the excellent technical insight in to security processes and equipment gives the reader a really feeling of authenticity when viewing in to the world of organised crime and terrorism.
Each book in this series have progressively established Gabriel Wolfe as a credible and exciting action hero and right from the the first paragraph you are engaged with this story.
The plot line is absorbing and any established Andy Maslen fans will love it, equally if you are new reader you can read this story as a stand-alone and really enjoy it if you like the action genre.
I deducted a star as I felt that the "costume" (no spoilers) worn by Gabriel was a little too OTT as were the number of occasions when he received advice from people who were not actually present.
Overall though an enjoyable read.
If you're a fan of hard hitting, hero based modern combat fiction then reading this latest book will give you your 'fix' Gabriel has style, panache and bucket loads of grit and determination. He dispatches baddies quicker than Gordon Ramsay can muster up his latest swear infested insult to some poor hapless restauranteur.
This story moves like lightning across the pages and the storyline is driven by Gariel's desire to put right the wrong so harshly dealt to his friend, ex-lover and colleague.
I'm a great fan of the Gabriel Wolfe stories and I'm one of the lucky ones I guess as I've still got the back catalogue to get my teeth into!
To sum up this latest book is pretty easy really, brilliant!
