REVIEW The Watchman

The Watchman

SAS Captain Alex Temple is on an urgent mission Someone has been murdering MI5 officers and it looks as if the killer is an insider one of the Regiment's own Alex's task is to track down and eliminate the killer a. Pro I loved Joseph Meehan as a character His tragic background really drove the plot and I really could understand him It s very realistic considering Ryan s context and the writing was not bad Con Alex Temple wasn t likeable nor interesting I hated the way Alex viewed and treated Dawn as a sexual object calling her a bitch for not tolerating his unwanted advances Icky I thought Dawn was fine but rather flat and likewise for Angel Fenwick who ironically had a likeable voice in one chapter than Alex did in the whole book The story dragged on in the beginning because it was bogged down by detailed exposition I came here for the Watchman not Alex s time in the army

READ Ñ MZINES.CO.UK È Chris Ryan

Nd to assist him he is assigned an MI5 liason officer the attractive but abrasive Dawn HardingThe body count is mounting and a deadly and relentless manhunt begins Soon Alex will learn the bitter truth in the shad. I d never read a Chris Ryan before and picked this up in the airport when I had forgotten my book To break it down this is the story of SAS Captain Alex Temple and various missions around the globe but focusing primarily on his tracking of a murderer who has received similar spec ops trainingChris Ryan writes in my opinion in a dour style that doesn t exactly fizz off the page and portrays the life of an SAS operative with an eye for the mundane I am sure that it is very true to life but as far as I am aware this is not a historical account it s a work of fiction The characters seem to either be ham fisted stereotypes or wildly inconsistent with dialogue that feels stunted and hackneyed and sometimes makes you want to bite your fist it s that bad Oh and he should be nominated for a bad sex award CringeworthyHowever sometimes he does get it right and portrays the grim reality of life after service for what it is grim Ryan does grim very well The action seuences the few of them are relayed with aplomb with vivid detail and gritty descriptions The prose seems to come alive when he is describing firefights or helicopters buzzing over a war zone He obviously knows his stuff and the military detail and insider knowledge he provides is authentic and comprehensiveBut it s like reading an episode of Eastenders when everyone carries guns and any authenticity he brings to the genre is lost in poor dialogue iffy characters and dull writing Shall be the only Chris Ryan I read

Chris Ryan È 1 CHARACTERS

Owy battlegrounds of the Intelligence wars there is no good and no evil only winners and losersThis relentless unputdownable thriller helps establish Chris Ryan as the master of no holds barred action storytelling. Good story with a twist at the end that was unexpected
