The Red Cobra - James Ryker #1

The Red Cobra: a James Ryker Thriller by [Sinclair, Rob]

The Red Cobra follows on from the Enemy Series featuring Carl Logan.  In The Red Cobra we meet James Ryker an ex secret agent who used to work for the JIA and his partner Lisa.  They are living a nice quite life, no one bothers them and things are good. 

The next thing his old boss Winter has found him and is sat in his house, asking for help.  True to form Ryker (aka Carl Logan) can’t resist the temptation especially when he hears that the person they are hunting is The Red Cobra.  Ryker had dealings with Red Cobra when he was Carl Logan and they have a history.  The Red Cobra however is female and it was great to read a book where the assassin is female.   

Before we know it Ryker has left the secret life he was living and is back in the thick of the action in true Carl Logan style. This book takes us to Spain, where Ryker becomes acquainted with a UK detective Paul Green who thinks Ryker is a freelance investigator and there to assist them.  We are treated to action in small villages off the beaten track, we are even treated to areas where traditional bull fighters would have trained, all the while on the hunt for The Red Cobra. 

The story continues with short pacey chapters, each one having you turn the pages wanting to know what happens next.  It was such a great read and boy did the book end with a need to want and know more.  What an ending and I cannot wait to see what is next in store for Ryker / Logan.

My thanks got to Rob Sinclair for allowing me to read an eARC of this book.  This review is my unbiased opinion and views are my own.
