Publisher's Summary

The seventh book in the best-selling Danny Black series.  

A series of gruesome killings take place in Dubai, Ghana and America. The victims are all connected with the SAS.   

In Hereford Danny Black realises they have something more specific in common - they were all involved in training a young Muslim soldier, Ibrahim Khan. Khan has been working undercover in Islamic State in a mission organised by MI6. Danny Black sets out to track him down with the help of Khan's MI6 handler on a trail that leads him to a library of ancient manuscripts in Damascus, the Syrian desert and finally back in the Brecon Beacons.   

There Danny discovers that he has finally met his match, his deadliest enemy - and it is the last person he ever expected.

Gripping and action packed

One of my favourite from the Danny Black series so far.
Lots of action, twists and attention to detail. It doesn’t shy away from a bit of grisly violence, however this is done in a way necessary to portray the horror in the story.
Great read, very gripping, looking forward to the next!

Great book, not so great narrator.

The book and story were great. The narrator let it down. Pretty much every character seemed to be from Birmingham. If you can't to accents then just leave it and talk normal.

Too short and not as good as others in the series

Didn’t like it as much as the others in the series; it seemed pretty short. The fast pace of the book appeared to be at the expense of further development of the characters and situations.

lukewarm

to me this was just a book for profit story . unimaginative and cliche . Where has the originality gone Mr Ryan ??? What made it really poor was the narrating .... Michael Fenner , pleeeez stop trying to do accents !! there's no need for them , most of all impersonating a women's voice .. you make them sound like a wobbly St Trinian's teacher , it made my teeth itch

Lacking in substance.

Quite surprised, it feels as though this was written to fulfill a publishing commitment. The detail is lacking and the story suffers for it.

Gripping

Gripping story and performance. Although, does the narrator need to make Danny seem so aggressive all the time to everybody he encounters?
