Better than Bond?

Barbara from California sent me a lovely email and the review below on Amazon. Thanks Barbara! After a bad week, your note was just what was needed!

Here’s Barbara’s note:

Ian, I’ve finished reading No Remorse and have given it 5 stars on Amazon.  I loved how you were able to weave so many levels of action together without losing the reader.  Your book was REALLY good and I was actually a little sad when I reached the last page.  I am honored to give you 5 stars.  barbara

And here’s Barbara’s review:


5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Bond, May 18, 2012
This review is from: No Remorse (Paperback)

No Remorse, start to finish, is a roller coaster ride of a read. Lee McCloud or Mac is shanghaied into a covert branch military operation after he botches a kidnapping rescue. Saving the young girls that have been abducted remains his main objective as he travels the world from Mexico, London, Paris, Dubai and onto a mysterious island nation worthy of a James Bond adventure. It is here that Khalid Yubani has set up his main operation that is so evil and vile that it makes his sex slave and human trafficking businesses seem bland in comparison.

Mac is aided by Tally, a genius hacker, whose job is to empty the bank accounts of al-Qaeda agents and the global militant Islamist friends of Osama bin Laden. Khalid turns out to be considered rogue to the inner families of al-Qaeda so the paths of Mac and Tally’s operations cross building mystery, intrigue and conspiracy like none I’ve read in recent years.

I’ve seen many other reviewers compare this first novel of Ian Walkley to those of Tom Clancy, Lee Child, and Robert Ludlum. I could not agree more. There are so many plots and sub-plots but Ian is able to keep the reader fully absorbed in the action without confusion. I’m looking forward to more from this author and would recommend this, his first novel, to one and all.
