About this book…

Carl Logan dedicated nearly twenty years of his life to the Joint Intelligence Agency. Now living in a secret location, under the new identify of James Ryker, he wants nothing more than to be left alone, the chance to start a new life away from chaos, violence, destruction and deceit.

It’s not long, however, before Ryker’s short-lived idyll is destroyed when he is tracked down by Peter Winter, his ex-boss at the JIA. Winter brings with him news of the murder of a woman in Spain, Kim Walker, whose fingerprints match those of one of Ryker’s former adversaries who’s been missing presumed dead for years – an infamous female assassin known as the Red Cobra.

A cyberattack at the JIA led to the Red Cobra’s profile being compromised, and Winter believes JIA agents may now be at risk too, Ryker included. But Ryker knew the elusive Red Cobra better than anyone, and when he sees the grisly pictures of Kim Walker’s corpse, he has news for Winter – she isn’t the assassin at all …

So just who is the mystery dead woman? And where is the real Red Cobra?

My review…

When I got my copy of The Red Cobra, I happened to mention to the Grumpy Scotsman that I was going to read the new Rob Sinclair. His response was that he loved The Enemy series and had been patiently waiting for the next Carl Logan book. So he was rather jealous when he realised that THIS was the book he had been patiently waiting for-a spin off series featuring James Ryker (The name that Carl Logan is now living under).

I’m not normally an overly enthusiastic fan of action thrillers like this but Rob Sinclair seems to write thrillers that are enjoyed by a much wider audience. He has an involving writing style that means you become completely submerged in the action and the plot right from the start. His characters are all ones that the reader can relate to especially his female characters who are strong, confident, kick ass heroines! I loved The Red Cobra although I wasn’t totally convinced if I should be so supportive of her, considering her past actions. I liked Lisa too even though we didn’t get to see as much of her here as I had expected.

This is the sort of book I enjoy reading in long sessions and I read it in one afternoon, totally gripped by the action packed thrills that just kept on coming. The twists and turns of the plot kept me in my toes throughout and just when I thought I knew where it was going another would be thrown into the mix. The Red Cobra is a great high octane start to this new series and I anticipate more intriguing thrills to come as it develops in the future.

And I’m pleased to say that the Grumpy Scotsman has also enjoyed his copy of The Red Cobra and thoroughly approves of this new series!

Many thanks to Bloodhound Books for my review copy of The Red Cobra: a James Ryker Thriller which was published on 4th April 2017 and is available to purchase here from Amazon UK.

I am a Norfolk girl living in leafy Cheshire with my grumpy Scotsman. A mum and nana who lives for my family but who is also addicted to reading (and Marmite!) I will read almost anything but my preferred genres to review are psychological thrillers, crime procedural novels or women's fiction. My kindle is my life but I also have a substantial bookshelf in my cosy reading room where I can go to escape the stresses of family life with plenty of tea and chocolate. I am a member of netgalley and bookbridg. I review on Amazon, where I'm a Top 500 reviewer, and Goodreads. You can always find me over on Twitter @jocatrobertson for any review requests.
