Book Review – Black Ops

by Stephen Leather (Hodder & Stoughton) ISBN978-1-444-73664-9

Black Ops gripped me from the first chapter as we are thrust into the exciting life of the main character, Spider and experience how he deals with revenge, betrayal and danger in an action packed sequence of events. Linking the plots in the book to real life events made it all the more real and made it easier for me to connect with the characters.

Overall I found the book intriguing. I felt as though I was in the drama, following the action alongside Spider and Charlie. As the drama continued to unfold, and deception and revenge sprang from just about every character I found I could no longer put the book down.

Reading Black Ops made me want to go back and read all the previous books in the series. All in all a great read that has me fascinated with action novels.
