Publisher's Summary

Nomad was explosive. This is nuclear....

The new thriller from internationally best-selling author James Swallow.

Move over Jason Bourne, Marc Dane is here....

A vicious Serbian gang whose profits come from fake nuclear weapons. A disgraced Russian general, with access to the real thing. A vengeful Somali warlord, with a cause for which he'd let the world burn. A jaded government agency, without the information to stop him. Only one man sees what's coming. And even he might not be able to prevent it....

Racing breathlessly from uncharted CIA prisons to the skyscrapers of Dubai, from stormbeaten oil rigs off the African coast to the ancient caverns beneath the city of Naples, Marc Dane returns in the incredible new action thriller from the internationally best-selling author of Nomad.

Dane at his best

Non-stop intrigue. Dane is his usual unassuming self who builds into his role with cunning and guile

Thrilling Listen / Superb Narration

This is an excellent continuation of the Marc Dane story, which truly comes to life with the brilliant narration by Colin Mace, whose effortless ability to move through the characters various accented English, and gender made this a pleasure to listen to. For anyone who liked the first in the series - Nomad, or I am Pilgrim (another superb story) should really enjoy this.

disappointing

ludicrous action sequences. Wouldn't employ hero as a baby sitter. Plot beyond fantasy and cohesion

Vacuous story, winding plot - won't be reading anymore in this series to be honest

Disappointing sequal.

I loved Nomad but this follow up seems to have lost its way a little, at least for my tastes. The performance was great as always, but the story seems to become akin to something from the Fast and Furious franchise, action segments beyond belief and corney dialogue left me detached from the characters.

Exile

Another great listen from James Swallow. Well narrated by Colin Mace full of tension and really well made characters. It was a joy to listen too. I look forward too the next one.

A Good Read

This second book was lacking slightly for me, I really enjoyed book one and looking forward to book three. Book two - Exile was just that little bit too far fetched in places. No matter how fit you are and how lucky you are, you and your colleagues wouldn't come out of this alive!! All said and done - it's a book and hopefully not too much is taken from real life!
