Rise of the Enemy by Rob Sinclair

rise of the enemyBlurb from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review

Everyone has a breaking point. Carl Logan might just have found his.

For the past 19 years, Agent Carl Logan has devoted his life to his work for the Joint Intelligence Agency; an intelligence agency controlled jointly by the USA and the UK. Policing, espionage and elite armed forces combined in one secretive and powerful network.

When the JIA sends Logan on a routine mission to Russia it should have been simple. But when his cover is blown, he’s transported into a world of hell he thought he would never see again.

Something is different this time, though, and before long doubts begin to surface in Logan’s mind as to why the assignment went so wrong. Logan has never been short of enemies. And sometimes the enemy is closer to home than you think.

Could his own people really have set him up? The odds are against him. But Logan isn’t a man who likes to be cornered. And when you poke a caged animal, you’d better be prepared for the consequences.

My Review

Wow, what can I say, this is a cracking spy thriller, it blew me away and that is not an easy feat. This is better than the first book by the author Dance with the Enemy. It has a bunch of the same characters, some new ones but can be read as a stand alone although I recommend you read them in the correct order. There are a few references to Logan´s previous jobs to give you reminders of what happened but they don´t give anything away and a subtle. This is more mature and I enjoyed the flashback chapter with some details in the writing that I loved. This is a very fast paced book that covers only a few days (apart from the flashbacks) in the life of Carl Logan as he tries to understand what is going on and what happen over the last few months.  This books reminded me a little of the James Bond series with loads of action, secrets, spies, mystery. Set entirely in Russia I could feel the cold seeping through my clothes as I read. bbbrrrrrrrr.  The ending leaves you in no doubt that there will be a third in the series. Thanks to netgalley for my copy.
