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

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

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!

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.

Ok

Interesting, and I liked the idea of the story. Seemed as though the Author isn’t keen on Officers and civil servants haha. I’m surprised that one supposedly the head of a branch of the Intelligence Service was so lacking in intelligence himself. ( I would hope that our real service would be better than this) The ending seemed as though there may be a part 2. Heavily Detailed murders.
Thanks for your service Mr Ryan.

Not one of the best Chris Ryan stories.

The narration was VG but the story was not as good as other books. Slow moving at times but passable.

Excellent Listen

I must admit I was put off listening to this book because of some of the comments made by people. But I am glad that in the end I decided to go for it,because I’m a big fan of Chris Ryan. I thought this was a good story, With plenty of action and very well read by the narrator. I could definitely recommend this book.

Not the best Danny Black but still very good.

I've preferred other Danny Black stories but this one is still great.
Michael Fenner does a brilliant job of narrating.
