A vicious Serbian gang whose profits come from fake nuclear weapons
A disgraced Russian general, with access to the real thing.
A vengeful Somali warlord, with a cause for which he’d let the world burn.
A jaded government agency, without the information to stop him.
Only one man sees what’s coming. And even he might not be able to prevent it . . .
Exile is fast paced, scarily realistic and a total thrill ride – an excellent follow up to the terrific “Nomad” featuring once again main protagonist Marc Dane.
Also once again I found it to be chillingly addictive and banged through it as Marc discovers a plot, gets ignored, so takes matters into his own hands. A chase ensues as he attempts to stop an attack that would kill millions, an edge of the seat thriller done in style.
The writing is clever and immersive, the plotting is taut and definitely frightening – I love the “Lone Wolf” vibe that James Swallow brings to these stories, Marc Dane is an interesting and highly engaging character to follow along with. The action is brilliantly described and the events often unexpected, keeping it fresh and appealing throughout.
Really a whole load of fun, wildly entertaining and thought provokingly authentic. Definitely recommended for thriller fans.
