I was underwhelmed by the previous novel, Dictator but delighted to see a return to form here. Carver felt like a slight change in style, a Bond villain style bad guy, closer ties to the British Intelligence services and a story that does not just focus on Carver himself. Introduced in the excellent “The Accident Man”, Carver is a skilled assassin, ex-special forces type. He’s a ‘good’ assassin (?) who only goes after guys who deserve it but he keeps trying to retire but being dragged back into the game. Here the markets are being manipulated by our bad guy and Carver is blackmailed into an assassination plot, meanwhile MI6 boss Jack Grantham is also taking an interest in the same guy. Carver ends up working with Grantham ( a great character by the way) to try to understand the end game. Cue eco-terrorists, Russian bad girls, the Chinese intelligence services and even Carver’s old chums from the SBS. It has pace and short, sharp, chapters. Action is blended well with a structured story and a variety of interesting characters and plot twists. Minor downsides were the original set up for the blackmail (too daft a premise) and a terrible scene where the bad guys explain the plot to each-other (in case we readers had missed it) but these do not overly detract from an easy to read and enjoyable thriller.
