Sacrifice – Will Jordan

Posted: October 31, 2013 in Review, thriller

sacraficeAfter a Black Hawk helicopter is shot down in Afghanistan, Ryan Drake and his elite Shepherd team are brought in to find and rescue the lone passenger, a CIA operative.  Held hostage by a fanatical insurgent group lead by an old enemy Ryan thought he’d killed years ago, the CIA agent holds information vital to the ongoing conflict.  The team arrives to investigate and the action starts.

The plot is very clever, with many twists and turns and uncertainty who to trust.  It moves at a fast pace and needs concentration to remember who does what.  I haven’t read the previous book and quickly picked up the threads of previous stories, so it’s not necessary to have read it, though the stories it tell seem good.

I had no idea of who the bad guys were until the ending or even that they were bad guys.  A separate story to the book’s main one was resolved, and I wish I’d read previous books to uncover more to the story.  I really want to know what happens to the good guy who turned out to be a bad guy who was a good guy and look forward to the next book.
