All I have ito say is wow but I'll continue as much as possible.
I usually don't put spoilers in my reviews but you need it to understand how great this book is written.
The book starts out in Georgia (country not the state) where Laszlo Antonov, a Russian bad guy, mass murders an entire village.
Jump ahead a few years when our hero, Tom Buckingham is on a mission to capture Antonov. Let's just say things go sideways and he escapes. How he escapes is pretty well planned but again, he's a really bad bad guy.
In the middle of these missions is a subplot about Tom's girlfriend Delphine who returns to Paris (to get away from Tom) on a hijacked train. Hijacked by...yep Laszlo Antonov.
I like the way the book is written in short chapters. Some chapters are not necessary and full of military talk but you can understand what is going on. This book is a great storyline for someone like Gerard Butler who does action, hostage, military movies very well.
I won't tell you how it ends but the book is action pack all the way through.
The only thing I didn't like about this book was the cover. It just doesn't stand out to me.
