Carl Logan was the perfect agent. A loner, with no real friends or family, he was trained to deal with any situation with cold efficiency, devoid of emotion. But Logan isn’t the man he used to be, or the asset he once was. Five months ago his life changed forever when he was captured, tortured and left for dead by Youssef Selim, one of the world’s most violent terrorists. When Selim mysteriously reappears in Paris, linked to the kidnapping of America’s Attorney General, Logan smells his chance for revenge. Pursuing his man relentlessly, oblivious to the growing trail of destruction that he leaves in his wake, Logan delves increasingly deep into the web of lies and deceit surrounding the kidnapping. Finally, he comes to learn just what it means to Dance with the Enemy.
Genre: action, thriller. 4 stars
This is a very fast paced thriller, nonstop action throughout. Logan, the main character, has a past and it catches up with him in this book, the first of a trilogy. The first few pages are thrilling, fast and furious; I love that, as it sets the pace for the rest of the book. It will grab your attention.
There is plenty of action and unexpected moments. My heart was racing at various points in the book at the action and thrills. There are gun fights, car chases, moments with suspense, I particularly enjoyed the part where Logan and Grainger where exploring the house of Blakemore, I will say no more and I don´t want to spoil it for anyone, it was a suspenseful moment.
The main part of the book takes place in and around Paris with the ending in USA.
I found that there was enough background information on Logan, possibly not enough on Grainger, but I think there is a reason for this. I hope to see more of her in the future. What was inevitable, was what happened between them both.
There is a nice twist at the end that I didn´t expect or guess.
This is Rob´s debut novel, there are more to come later this year with the release of Rise of the Enemy
Great title and good cover.
I was provided with a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.
