I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
Roy Sullivan’s world is coming apart…
His wife and son have deserted him, his brother Jimmy, a private military contractor, gone, vanished into thin air in the Iraqi desert. All Roy has left is a dingy apartment and a low-paid job at London’s Heathrow airport. And now even that is under threat.
Sammy French, a violent criminal, is in need of a favour, one that a suddenly compromised Roy has no choice but to grant. Forced to take part in a perilous criminal conspiracy, Roy’s future is bleaker than the run-down estate he lives on.
Yet as the walls close in around him a mysterious stranger enters Roy’s crumbling world, a former Navy Seal who knows the truth about the Nine Eleven attacks, a man haunted by demons and hunted by powerful forces, a man who holds the key to the mystery of Jimmy Sullivan’s disappearance while guarding a covert facility deep in the Iraqi desert.
For Roy, this troubled and dangerous stranger will come to represent his only chance of escape, not only from the uncertainty of his brother’s fate and the clutches of a vicious gangster, but also from the coming storm, one that threatens to decimate humanity and usher in a ruthless and terrifying New World Order.
What did I think?
This is yet another first for me! I’m not usually drawn to ‘action’ books but Alden has weaved a thriller-like storyline in to it too. It took me a little while to get my teeth in to, but ‘The Angola Deception’ soon got it’s hooks in to me and I couldn’t put it down.
The only reason why this book didn’t get a five heart review is because Alden didn’t offer any ‘OH MY GOD’ moments…there were no extreme twists within the book but it doesn’t mean it’s not brilliant! I think that Alden has written the book with the intention of grabbing you and not letting go…that doesn’t mean there has to be major twists because the story itself is good enough to hold it’s ground.
The book ended with the much dreaded ‘To Be Continued…’ – dreaded because you don’t want to wait until the next book is released to find out what happens! That being said, Alden has ‘wrapped’ enough of the story up to keep me satisfied until the follow-up.
