Reviews - What do customers think about Final Vengeance?
Tim McGrath Apr 16, 2006
His days as an intelligence agent behind him, John Tanner is forced to return, against his better judgement, into what turns out to be a roller coaster ride of nightmare proportions, when a splinter group of the IRA kidnaps a nuclear physicist and threatens to detonate an atomic device in London. In a conflict of loyalties, Tanner falls in love with Colette, the girlfriend of Sean Flanagan, an act that marks him as a target in the sights of the psychotic IRA bomber, who won't stop until he has had his revenge on them both. Tanner's life is constantly on the line, together with that of his partners, in this riveting, fast-moving thriller set against the backdrop of UK terrorism in the 1980s. Without revealing the ending to potential readers the question throughout is can he prevent the ultimate nightmare scenario. The real treat for me was the author's ability to make the unfolding story interesting including the factual elements which at times almost made me forget I was actually reading fiction. Ken Fryer has done an excellent job of covering all of his bases.
The cover blurb about the author states he has been writing various genres on and off since the late sixties and this experience is highlighted throughout this book for its quality writing, believable characters, proficient plot building, and not to mention it's absorbing, pulse racing storyline
