Shadow, James Swallow

Shadow opening line: Through the window of the carriage, the close ranks of the fir trees crowded in along the sides of the railway line.


My blurb:

Marc Dane has been sent on a mission by his boss. The very wealthy Ekko Solomon, who is trying to right the wrongs of the world. Ekko has a different way of doing things. And his way does not meet the approval of the board of directors. So without the support they usually get, Marc has to make do with what he has. Which is a unique skill set and a rash decision making tendency.


Things are about to go viral for Marc Dane in his most dangerous adventure yet…

A ruthless far-right terrorist is broken out of captivity.

A mysterious bio-scientist with a terrible secret is abducted

A lethal contagion threatens millions of lives across Europe and the Middle East Ex-MI6 officer Marc Dane faces a deadly challenge against all odds, to stop a devastating attack before a new kind of weapon is unleashed…

My verdict:

After having read Ghost, I was glad to pick up another Marc Dane Novel. The book touches on some very relevant topics, especially those of far right extremism. A good read! And one I can recommend for holiday pleasure reading.

Publishing information:

ISBN 9781785765216

Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Jonathan Ball Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
