Summary

Marianne is an assassin. One of the best in the business. Except killing isn't her business - it's her way of getting revenge. Revenge that has been a long time coming. But there are dark forces who want to use Marianne for their own ends. Dark forces who will do whatever is necessary to acquire her skills. But what they don't know is that Marianne has a secret. A secret that could be the death of them all.

Just Fantastic

I have read so many of Stephen Leathers books I have lost count and this is one of the best. While the Dan Shepherd series is getting a little, let’s say, predictable, Triggers feels fresh, exciting and new while staying in the Dan Shepherd stable. I hope to see more in this series from the magnificent Mr Leather and not to forget, the beautiful narration by Paul Thornley.

Stunning new character !!, more please

Stephen Leather is a master of the thriller genre, and his latest novel, Triggers, is no exception. This fast-paced, action-packed story follows Marianne, a highly skilled assassin who is hellbent on revenge. Marianne is a complex and sympathetic character, and her journey is both thrilling and heartbreaking.

The plot of Triggers is expertly crafted, with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. The action scenes are visceral and well-described, and the suspense is palpable. Leather also does a great job of developing the supporting characters, who are all well-rounded and believable.

One of the things that I really enjoyed about Triggers is how it feels like a love child of Leather's Spider Shepherd and Jack Nightingale series. Marianne has the same kind of dark past and troubled psyche as Spider Shepherd, but she also possesses the same kind of supernatural abilities as Jack Nightingale. This combination of elements makes for a truly unique and compelling read.

Overall, Triggers is a fantastic thriller that I highly recommend. It's a must-read for fans of Stephen Leather, and it's sure to please fans of the thriller genre in general. I'm already eagerly awaiting Leather's next book.

* * *

I would also like to add that I would love to see Stephen Leather write more books about Marianne. She is a fascinating character with a lot of potential, and I would love to see her story continue. I'm sure that Leather could create even more exciting and suspenseful adventures for her.
