Publisher's Summary

Going Dark is the debut crime thriller from former covert specialist Detective Sergeant Neil Lancaster. 

Tom Novak is a troubled soul with a dark and bloody past. A former refugee, Royal Marine and member of the elite Special Reconnaissance Regiment, he now finds himself struggling with the deadening routine of day-to-day policing. When he is deployed undercover to infiltrate a gang of people traffickers, things go badly wrong. Faced with an impossible choice, his cover is blown, and he finds himself on the run from the Serbian mafia and even his fellow police colleagues. With no-one to trust, and his enemies using all the resources of the state against him, Tom has only one option: to Go Dark.

Fast and Action packed

I like this book. I tend to listed to authors such as Tom Wood and Greg Hurwitz. This book was interesting right from the start. I found it hard to stop listening including waking up early and listening. Was sorry when it ended but still enjoyed it immensely.
I can't wait for the next in the series.

It was believable and the primary character was not invincible so very believable. Good to see that whilst Tom was seriously impacted by the trauma of his childhood he was still a high functioning human with strong feelings and loyalty to his family, even though they were his adopted parents.. His loyalty and was demonstrated again at the end of the book and it is refreshing to see people who are principled and proud and not tempted by status and money.

As I said I liked this book.
