*Blog Tour* The Fallen Agent – Oliver Tidy ★★★★★

Blurb: 

Jess Albion has recently started a new life on the other side of the world with a new identity. She used to be MI5. Then a job went bad, someone died and she was made an example of in the British courts. But MI5 look after their own. Or they did until rumours of a planned Al Qaeda biological terror attack on London started circulating. Now someone in the British security services is giving agents up in return for information. No price, it seems, is too high to save London from the ultimate threat.

When Jess’s fresh start is compromised she has a choice to make: run and hide and spend the rest of her life looking over her shoulder or go looking for the threat and snuff it out. On her own, she’d run, but she has Nick on her side.

My Review: 

I must apologise as I was suppose to post this blog tour on the 21st but my laptop has been broken and still is so I will post the blog tour up now.

This book is based on the TV programme Spooks and is the first in a brand news series by Oliver. I have never personally seen Spooks but this read well for me ands I look forward to the sequel.

So I was going to keep the whole main character of this book a secret but as you can see above the main character is a woman in this thriller called Jess. Now, many main characters in this genre are male which instantly had me intrigued and on Jess’s side within this story.  I also love the cover for this book.

The Fallen Agent is a brilliant story to delve into and easy to read. This story is written well and will have you hooked from the first page till the last. I would highly recommend this story to you all if you haven’t read it already. I cannot wait to dive into more books by this author after my high expectations of finishing The Fallen Agent. A well deserved five stars from me and an author to keep an eye on in the future.

fugative

The final chapter for Max and Carla!
Carla has been kidnapped and Max awakes in hospital with amnesia, branded a murderer and terrorist. Helped by a NEW psychotic girlfriend (Star), Max goes on the run and steals money from drug gangs and arranges new identities as they seek refuge abroad. All the while Carla breaks free and heads on to solve more missions on her own, while she tries to trace Max and Star to a pacific atoll.
It is all a case of wrong place, wrong time as all involved stumble upon a secret that is too dreadful to be exposed, but a love triangle already threatens to do just that!
Is this the end for the Max and Carla duo?
Has Carla been replaced and forgotten?
You will have to read it yourself, in order to find out!

John Day’s stories just keep getting BETTER AND BETTER!
But I must say I am sad to have finished this amazing series which had me hooked from the start. I awarded Fugitive five stars as it was the perfect ending to a great series, I enjoyed. It is also well written, easy to read and VERY fast paced! Fugitive is another action, crime, spy thriller and adventure packed story that I would highly recommend to you all! I will say this again as I have always said, do not judge a book by its cover as you will miss out on fabulous stories like this series! The series does need to be read in order, but it is one you will not forget easily and one for your wishlist! If you are looking for a new author or series to indulge in I would highly recommend John Day!
Enjoy I did.

The Suicide Club – Andrew Williams ✶✶✶✶

the suicide club

August 1917. Britain is mired in bloody stalemate at Passchendaele and the prime minister is looking for someone to blame. Soldier spy Sandy Innes is seconded to Haigs headquarters officially to train a new espionage group called The Suicide Club, unofficially to spy on the field marshals staff. Innes soon discovers few at HQ trust the top secret information being fed to Haig by his intelligence chief, and as he digs deeper he begins to suspect treachery. The stakes could not be higher the fate of hundreds of thousands of British soldiers. In a tense race against time and against the background of political machinations, Innes must survive membership of The Suicide Club, and then risk all by going back behind enemy lines to uncover the truth.

I fancied something different to read and this was the perfect book! I awarded The Suicide Club four stars as I have to admit I did not understand some of the words in the story, but that did not affect the story line for me. It is a well written brilliant story! I did not find it an easy read but I did devour it and was hooked throughout, I love a good historical fiction now and again. I would recommend this to you all, I understand it may not be everyone’s cup of tea but this is the perfect story for readers who enjoy a brilliant historical fiction, war and spy thriller. It is one of those stories that will transport you into a different world from the comfort of your couch. Enjoy, I did.
