Still tormented by the disappearance of his wife, ex-intelligence agent James Ryker sets out on a personal mission of revenge, prepared to go to any lengths in search of the truth.
The trail takes him from the crystal waters of Mexico’s Caribbean coast, back to a place he thought he would never set foot again - his country of birth, England. But there he discovers more than even he bargained for. Stumbling across a terrorist attack targeted against his old employers - the secretive Joint Intelligence Agency -the faint clues to many events in his recent past are all seemingly linked to one mysterious character; The Silver Wolf.
But just who is the Silver Wolf, and why is he hell-bent on punishing not just Ryker, but his closest allies at the JIA too?
Has Ryker finally met his match?
Rob Sinclair is a West Midlands based author, known for his bestselling "Enemy" and "James Ryker" series of thrillers. He began writing in 2009 and has been producing brilliantly fast paced reads ever since - with "The Silver Wolf" continuing Ryker's story with pace, tension, and skill.
The "Enemy" series followed Carl Logan - and after retiring under the new identity of James Ryker, he swiftly found himself drawn back into the action in both "The Red Cobra" and "The Black Hornet" - and again here in "The Silver Wolf". He's a massively compelling character, and having followed him through the series, it's rather hard not to be attached to him - he has a strength and grit that's immensely readable, and Sinclair isn't afraid to make him a flawed, developed character rather than the one dimensional leads who one often finds cropping up in thrillers.
Sinclair plunges the reader deep into the action in "The Silver Wolf" within a few pages - the reader is transported to exotic climes and into a high stakes plot that, due to the way the reader has got to know Logan/Ryker over these series, feels immensely personal. This in turn leads to a thrilling climax that's almost cinematic in its scope - and ends on what feels like the end of a chapter for Ryker - although I sincerely hope not the end of his story.
Huge fun - "The Silver Wolf" is perhaps my favourite of the Logan/Ryker stories, with a culmination of plot threads, explosive action and a focus on just how Ryker is coping with all that life has thrown at him. These are high quality, superbly written books - give them a read and you'll be sure to have a wild ride with Ryker.
