This series just gets better and better, if that’s at all possible. Ryker is undoubtedly one of my favourite fictional characters and Rob Sinclair is undoubtedly one of my favourite authors.
If you haven’t read the other books in this series then I highly recommend you do so, in order, if for no other reason than you are seriously missing out if you don’t!
The Green Viper (book 4) finds Ryker in receipt of a coded message at a secret location. A secret location only he and one other person knows about and that other person is his ex-boss who is now dead! When he realises the message is from his ex-boss’s widow, he accepts her death bed plea to help their son, Campbell, who has managed to get himself involved with some seriously dodgy criminals who hide their extra income behind seemingly successful, legitimate, businesses. These people are obsessed with money and power. Certainly not the kind of people I would choose to associate with, but Campbell is already involved with one of their daughters and finds the lure of thousands of pounds at a time and fancy cars too much to resist, despite having his reservations. Feuding ‘business men’, full of greed, want what the other has and Campbell finds himself in the middle of it all with Ryker trying to discreetly find a way of extricating him from the volatile situation, but it was never going to be an easy task.
This book is extremely fast-paced and full of action. Sometimes quite brutally violent! I do love the fight scenes. Ryker certainly knows how to handle himself. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, this series needs to be on TV. I think it would be awesome.
I was totally captivated, as with the previous books in the series. I loved the very last line of the book! I’m so glad I’m able to start book 5 straight away! Watch this space for my review of The White Scorpion.
James Ryker is back and better than ever.
I need your help. Call me.
Ex-intelligence agent James Ryker receives a coded message through a secret drop point, a means of communication known only to him and one other person. The problem is, that person is his ex-boss, Mackie… and he’s already dead.
But the cry for help is real, and it’s a request Ryker can’t refuse.
Travelling to New York alone and without official sanction, Ryker has a single goal in mind, yet even he couldn’t have bargained for the violent world he’s soon embroiled in. Caught in the middle of a spiralling chaos, with the FBI on one side and warring underworld bosses on the other, Ryker must put all of his skills to the test in order to come out on top and keep his word.
In a world full of lies and deceit, loyalty is everything, and it’s time for James Ryker to pay his dues.
