Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 May 2022
When an Iranian defector shows his true loyalties, steals a vital bit of kit and flees for home, there may be only one man who can stop him, Richard Yokely.
Other thriller writers must be envious of the way Stephen Leather delivers outstanding thrillers every single time. He appears to not have a bad book in him.
Richard Yokely is one of Mr Leather’s side characters, talented, with ruthless and singular focus and a man you definitely want on your side.
This is a novella so the focus is on page turning action as Yokely and his small team chase down the bad guy as he makes his way across the Middle East towards home. We are introduced to a world of clandestine operations and military units that live in a world under the radar and Yokely’s team burn through them heading for their target. I liked the clever plot device that required the bad guy to briefly “show” himself to his pursuers. But then the whole plot was a delight to be honest, a captivating thrill ride from one of the best. Not much more you could ask from a novella or thriller.
