Red Notice

Need to rethink this 30/04/2020

Something went wrong with this one. So much so one can’t help questioning whether it is the same author.

Andy McNab Red Notice

I would question whether Red Notice by Andy McNab was in fact written by Andy McNab. It is a new series which lacks the authenticity of the earlier books I have read. He mangles the dialogue horribly when trying to introduce the complexities of an emotional relationship. It has a clumsy story line and I suspect these books are being churned out as quickly as possible to capitalise on the writers previous success.

Cold Blood

Another action thriller from Andy McNab. Cold Blood precedes the other two in the series which I have read.

Book reviews Andy McNab Cold Blood

An easy read with all the usual hardcore exploits expected from a fictional Special Forces operative.


It was going to be long flight there and back.

Chris Ryan Hellfire

So I stocked up with what I could find from Andy McNab and Chris Ryan. Books I can skim through. However I do worry that I should be looking for stuff that has a bit more substance to it. Chris Ryans work is readable although the tales are very much do and die.

Helps to pass the time.

Dead Centre

Fast moving, action packed, almost believeable.

Andy McNab Dead Centre

Another book by an ex Special Forces author. Well written and not too over the top. A light read for those who enjoy the genre.

The Titanic Secret

A not to be believed pre-war thriller set aboard the Titanic.

The Titanic Secret James Becker

Predictably both the hero and heroine make it through to the end of the book a bit battered and bruised, to complete the happy ending.
