if this is a genre you enjoy My second Ryan story and definitely his best so far Although the plot is similar to most of his tales a series of murders are investigated by a tough SAS man there are enough twists and differences to make it worthwhile It s grimly violent and as gruesome as ever, with extreme torture, nails through heads, eyes cut out etc., enough to make you glad you don t operate in these kind of circles The plot involving the character of the Watchman is ridiculously well thought out and really enthral My second Ryan story and definitely his best so far Although the plot is

thought out and really enthralling regarding his background it all seems so real you find it hard to remember you re reading fiction, the material is so well researched Once again, characterisation is thin, and Ryan s attempts to make Alex and Dawn flirt with each other are really wince inducing, the one naff aspect of the novel plus the unnecessary sex scenes, of course Cut these out and the book would be flawless As it is, it still remains very good indeed especially the drawn out action, which of course the book is thick with From the opening battle in the sweaty jungles of Sierra Leone, through to the taught stake out in a country stream, right down to a breakneck motorbike chase across the moors, this is top level stuff, impossible to put down Of course, there is the expected twist right at the end, but what a twist Superbly conceived, it turns the whole story on its head, quite fantastic stuff and the best twist I ve read in fiction, ever Definitely worthwhile for SAS thriller fans, this is a book I borrowed from the library but am determined to buy as soon as possible I d never read a Chris Ryan before and picked this up in the airport when I had forgotten my book To break it down, this is the story of SAS Captain Alex Temple and various missions around the globe but focusing primarily on his tracking of a murderer who has received similar spec ops trainingChris Ryan writes, in my opinion, in a dour style that doesn t exactly fizz off the page and portrays the life of an S.A.S operative with an eye for the mundane I am sure that it is very true to I d never read a Chris Ryan before and picked this up in the airport when I had forgotten my book To break it down, this is the story of SAS Captain Alex Temple and various missions around the globe but focusing primarily on his tracking of a murderer who has received similar spec ops trainingChris Ryan writes, in my opinion, in a dour style that doesn t exactly fizz off the page and portrays the life of an S.A.S operative with an eye for the mundane I am sure that it is very true to life but as far as I am aware this is not a historical account it s a work of fiction The characters seem to either be ham fisted stereotypes or wildly inconsistent with dialogue that feels stunted and hackneyed and sometimes makes you want to bite your fist it s that bad Oh, and he should be nominated for a bad sex award Cringeworthy.However, sometimes he does get it right and portrays the grim reality of life after service for what it is grim Ryan does grim very well The action sequences the few of them are relayed with aplomb with vivid detail and gritty descriptions The prose seems to come alive when he is describing firefights or helicopters buzzing over a war zone He obviously knows his stuff and the military detail and insider knowledge he provides is authentic and comprehensive.But it s like reading an episode of Eastenders when everyone carries guns and any authenticity he brings to the genre is lost in poor dialogue, iffy characters and dull writing Shall be the only Chris Ryan I read I always enjoy Chris Ryan s books an d characters This story is interesting on so many levels, both it s reference to Northern Ireland and its politics, the security services and the intelligence services It is also full surprises and curves to keep you hung on every word. Absolutely loved this book It s the second Chris Ryan book I ve read and still keeps me on my toes I was absolutely engrossed the whole way through The one thing I like about his books is that you can never predict the ending That s probably the best bit Good story with a twist at the end that was unexpected. This book supplied enough action to keep me interested from front to back Character development was OK but was sufficient enough to carry the plot through to the end. {Free Book} ä The Watchman ⛓ SAS Captain Alex Temple is on an urgent mission Someone has been murdering MI officers and it looks as if the killer is an insider, one of the Regiment s own Alex s task is to track down and eliminate the killer, and to assist him he is assigned an MI liason officer the attractive but abrasive Dawn HardingThe body count is mounting and a deadly and relentless manhunt begins Soon Alex will learn the bitter truth in the shadowy battlegrounds of the Intelligence wars there is no good and no evil only winners and losersThis relentless unputdownable thriller helps establish Chris Ryan as the master of no holds barred action storytelling Lurid, bitter, violent and pretty terribly written but it rips along aside from a serious lull in the middle and ticks all the boxes of predictable airport thriller
