Summary

The explosive globe-trotting espionage thriller about a fallen hero who must rise from the ashes against all odds, from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Nomad, James Swallow.

Gutted by the ruthless power brokers known as the Combine, the Rubicon Group is a shadow of its former self, its founder Ekko Solomon missing presumed dead and the members of its private security and intelligence team in hiding, framed for a terrorist atrocity they did not commit.

For ex-MI6 officer Marc Dane, his friend and colleague Lucy Keyes, and the survivors of Rubicon's Special Conditions Division, the future is bleak. With no support and no backup, they are living on the edge, and the walls are closing in - so with nothing left to lose, the team will risk everything in a last ditch gambit to strike back at the Combine and bring them down...once and for all.

Rising from the ashes of Rubicon's destruction, Marc and the team undertake a high-stakes undercover mission to stop a catastrophic plan to crash the global financial network, with only their cunning and their skills to carry them through. If they succeed, they might just get their lives back. If they fail, it will be the end of everything they've been fighting for....

Guilty pleasure 5 1/2*

I love all the recurring characters, the baddies are bondvillanesque and the way they get around the world and what they get away with is ridiculous, but I love it! And I could listen to Colin Mace read a phone directory! Next!

Good, but stop/start narration

I really enjoyed this book, and the whole Mark Dane series, and I really like Colin Mace as a narrator - but on this one I found the reading pace to be a little bit slow and stop/start. It didn’t spoil the story at all, but I’ve only given the performances 3 stars because of it.

The story itself is the usual loud bangs, car chases and movie style locations and the characters are great though. I’d still recommend it completely to anyone though. Buy it!

Fast paced and unstoppable

A terrific continuation to the story with lots of challenges along the way. I really enjoyed this book as I have the whole series.

As always Dane and the Gang epic

Mr Swallow does a superb job of the underdog taking Goliath down. Always exciting action and a smattering of deep moral thinking for good measure. I don’t think I have not binged on any of the series yet, hoping Mr Dane gets some decent shore leave
