Clearly Done A Lot Of done a lot of into terrorism as there is a lot of etails included into the story which I found very interesting to read about I Material Alchemy didn t know how all theifferent services in the UK like the police are counter terrorism units worked together so I thought it was fascinating to Falling For A Boss discover about this These littleetails also helped make the story seem real so I felt invested in what would happenThe characters are all very well Basics of successful agriculture in the tropics drawn and believable and I enjoyed getting to know them better over the course of the book The author slowly reveals to the reader about their background and why they are in the situation they are in which made me feel sympathetic to them as I understood the reasons behind their actionsI thought this was a very absorbing enjoyable read which I found easy to get into The pace is uite steady and there is always something to keep the reader s attention The ending was a bit surprising as Iidn t see it ending the way it Regenerating Agriculture: Policies and Practice for Sustainability and Self Reliance did for some of the charactersHuge thanks to Ellie Hudson from Viking for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book A major terrorist attack has just hit a busy train station and members of the public have been killed The Security Services knew about the planned attack in advance and Jake Winter was the Intelligence Officer in charge of the operation to stop it His career his self esteem and his confidence levels are at an all time low but life has to go on While he is attending the public enuiry and being interviewed inetail about his role and what exactly went wrong in the previous attack unbeknown to the enuiry panel or the public he is also involved in his next project On enuiry panel or the public he is also involved in his next project On occasion his source is Rashid a young man who has been fighting abroad for the cause and has now been selected as one of the main perpetrators of the next planned attack He has allegedly become They Hear Me Crying Now! (The True Story of Child Abuse Continued) - Child Abuse True Stories disillusioned and was therefore willing to be recruited by British Intelligence Services in an attempt to foil the next attack But can he be trusted That is the millionollar uestion but there are no certainties in Jake s world and he cannot afford to make a second mistake This book basically gives a blow by blow account of the anti terrorist operation as it unfolds In essence this book is a very Mobilizing Islam detailed behind the scenes look at counter terrorism and it is fascinating I have absolutely no idea whether the methods used by the Intelligence Forces in this book were realistic but as Nicholas Searle the author worked in Intelligence for many years presumably this lends aegree of authenticity to the narrative The methods used to fight terrorism are far complicated than I could ever have envisaged and the amount of work reuired combined with the numbers of people involved in a single operation are staggering as procedures and processes are put in place to safeguard the security of the British public Not only are we given an insight into a world which would normally be totally inaccessible to mere mortals but the book also investigates the complex relationships between all the participants in this multifaceted operation and how trust becomes a leap of faith tempered by a very large BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) dose of caution I thought that the aspect of the book which worked particularly well was the way in which the author allowed us to examine the feelingsoubts and emotions of all the concerned parties And when I say all I mean not just the police and the government epartments involved in the operation but also the terrorists themselves and the members of the public who have been affected by previous attacks For me the ownside was that there was just too much Alien Zookeeper's Abduction detail and I found myself getting boggedown and actually a little bit bored with the minutiae times Also although written the third person I often found myself unsure as to who the subject was which idn t make for an easy read I had never come across Nicholas Searle before but will look out for his other books Whilst FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE GOOD LIAR SOON TO BE A MAJOR FILMA terrorist attack has just hit a busy railway station Jake Winter was the British intelligence officer in charge of stopping the attack and now his career and his conscience are in freefall Jake's next anti terror operation has to be a success He has got himself a new source a youn. British Intelligence Service but things are about to come crashing own around him
The Story Starts With story starts with terrorist attack on a busy railway station Jake was in charge of stopping this attack but his asset seems to have played him for a fool While an enuiry into this terrorist attack is ongoing Jake s job oesn t just stop He s found another source who s part of yet another terrorist cell But can this young man be trusted or will history repeat itselfThis is one tense ride and you will history repeat itselfThis is one tense ride and you never really uite sure how it will all end which seems fitting because neither o the characters in this story I thoroughly enjoyed the way Nicholas Searle tackled this intriguing tale from various angles The reader follows Jake and his partner as they meet with the source we are also introduced to the members of the terrorist cell we follow the preparations from the armed forces the political games behind the scenes and the enuiry into the railway station attack which makes you feel like a member of the audience African or American?: Black Identity and Political Activism in New York City, 1784-1861 desperate for answers while all the while feeling none will be forthcoming All these points of view really place the reader right in the centre of all the actionWhat a compelling read this is Full of fascinating characterseceit the games some people play and never uite knowing what will happen A Fatal Game feels horribly realistic utterly believable and somewhat frightening If anything it has left me with the utmost admiration for spies all over the world in awe of the responsibility they face every single The Logic of Self-Destruction day and the knowledge that it isn t at all as glamorous as it looks on tv It may be short at a mere 245 pages but it packs uite a punch and it held my attention throughout right up until the uiteramatic conclusion A Fatal Game is a well plotted spy thriller that will undoubtedly appeal to fans of the genre Ending was very underwhelming rest of book nicely written It s testament to the sign of our times when this glimpse into the mindset of a terrorist organisation both from the insider Around the Sacred Fire: Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era dealings of the terrorists and also from those who seek to protect the public from harm is such a fascinating and timely readWhen a surveillance goes horribly wrong Jake Winter a British intelligence officer feels the full force of public condemnation but with a heightened sense ofanger comes an obligation to get it absolutely right next time Using contacts within a terrorist organisation is a brave and The Alchemy of Opposites determined move but is not without considerableanger and it is this Holy Crap The World is Ending The Anunnaki Chronicles dangerous aspect which is explored inetail A Fatal Game is one of those stories in which you re never uite sure who is working for whom or indeed if any of the undercover operatives are truly what they seem and therein lies the strength of the novel and is what kept me guessing until the endThe author writes well and maintains a high level of tension throughout the story without compromising on the believability in the way the plot unfolds Reading of the author s background of working in intelligence for many years it s obvious throughout the novel that he is writing about what he knows and he Stand and Deliver: Political Activism, Leadership, and Hip Hop Culture does so without ever seeking to over sensationalise the after effects of a terrorist attack and always with a keen sensitivity for those people who may have been caught up in such an atrocity in real lifeTo say too much about the plot would give far too much away as this like all suspense stories is best read without any spoilers and in keeping it that way the full force of the ending will impact on you as much as itid to me I like it when an author The Wrong Complexion for Protection does not get typecast and every book Nicholas Searle has written is totallyifferent but of eually high calibreI really enjoyed A Fatal Game a tense thriller A Black Woman's Civil War Memoirs: Reminiscences of My Life in Camp With the 33rd U.S. Colored Troops, Late 1st South Carolina Volunteers dealing with the terrorist threat that faces us all today when nobody is uite sure who he or she seems to beIs the mole within the terrorist cell playing the intelligence services or is he really trying to help themThe secret is not revealed until late on in what is a captivating and well plotted book that never fails to thrillHighly recommended. In a state of panic And panic is the last thing you need when you're playing a game like this PRAISE FOR NICHOLAS SEARLE'It reminded me strongly of John le Carre this is high praise' Daily Mail'Unbearably tense' Daily Telegraph 'Think of Ruth Rendell morphing into John le Carré' Daily Express'You will have your socks knocked nay blown off' Stylist. Was not totally convinced by this one it was good enough for me to give his books another chance When a terrorist bomb goes off in a busy station and innocent civilians are killed tough uestions are asked For Jake Winter this is too close to home as the bomber was one of his agents Juggling appearing at the enuiry with handling his latest recruit Rashid Jake is close to the edge As Rashid lets Jake know that another attack isue Jake feels his life unravellingThere are some really good ideas in this book but sometimes they get lost in the welter of well meaning
IDEAS ABOUT MODERN POLITICS ARE PUSHED about modern politics are pushed less likely characters and it all becomes very confused towards the end with the plot turning in on itself Searle can plot a ecent story and has really modern ideas about the nature of spying but tighter editing would make his books sing A Fatal Game When life is not a game Nicolas Searle has once again written an excellent thriller and continues the good work that he began with the Good Liar He is following in the well trodden footsteps of Le Carre and others and he knows how to keep you hooked until the endJake Winter has an asset in play all he has to o is lead the team to the local an asset in play all he has to Children of the Sun do is lead the team to the local station and see who the asset meets All the police and the spooks are close and following and then boom his assetetonates a bomb Then the subseuent public inuiry he is under pressure to tell the truth and not to avoid answering some of the uestions Some of the establishment would like someone to pin the blame on for the terrorist outrageWhile he has to attend the public inuiry he also has another asset in play who is almost ready to reveal who the main person is behind the outrage at the railway station and who is intent on terrorising this northern town He knows that his new operation with Rashid has to be a success a recent returnee from the Middle East he needs for this to turn out a success and everything else will be Approaches To Academic Reading And Writing duly forgottenJake is beginning to beisillusioned with the operations Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 disillusioned with the service and the lies This not being helpful when you have people s lives in your hands The service is also worried about Jake and the operation even so the closer the operation is to the final event With so many uestions of trusto you trust your asset Witch-Hunt Narrative do you trust yourselfo you trust everyone else around you Jake is a character that many people could identify with especially the self My Hero Academia Series Volume 1 - 20 Books Collection Set by Kouhei Horikoshi doubt and the panic when under a serious amount of pressure from the bossA Fatal Game is a great story of our times that will keep you gripped from beginning to end Disappointing I greatly enjoyed The Good Liar by the same author so had high expectations for this It began well but about two thirds of the way in started to sag with long conversations rather than plotevelopment and the ending felt like a let Alcohol Addiction Recovery down with uite a lot of loose ends untied and a lack of a convincing round off A great pity Highly touted as being in the Le Carre line of craftsmanship this thriller is unfortunately not up the master s standardYes there is the highly contemplative writing the selfoubting main secret agent who has a higher moral standard than what the service and the meddling politicians impose on him There is in fact a bunch action than you ll find in Le Carre s last novels However the self reflective Mars Journey dialogs appear to me uite stilted and artificial The worst point is an intellectualiscussion between secret agent and the mother of two terrorist victims no grieving mother could have such a coldly rational ialog with a man who she must identify as a main culprit of on operation gone badly wrong Who isn t fascinated by the world of spooks These men and women whose jobs are steeped in mystery so much that They Aren T Even Allowed aren t even allowed talk about it spend their ays in ways we know nothing about And maybe that s not such a bad thing After all there is a lot of stuff going on out there in the world and none of it is particularly good Ignorance is blissIn A Fatal Game we meet Jake Winter Jake is a spy for the.
