When a Reacher terrorist group enlists the help of a deranged serial killer, their goal is simple: bring about chaos in Britain. But when the death count starts rising, chaos comes sooner than expected.
With the tension between the London elite and the surrounding slums reaching breaking point, Charlie finds himself in handcuffs on the wrong side of the border. Government agents are closing in and Charlie is running out of time.
Can his friends save him in time – and when the storm comes, will anyone get out alive?

I read the first book and didn’t quite get it and wasn’t sure I liked the lead characters that much either. But something about the story compelled me to finish the book. Along came book two and I understood them a little better and Roxy came into his own a little more. A seedy character I didn’t like at all originally.
The author told me that she feels this was her best yet and she isn’t wrong. I absolutely loved this story line. Now I understand the world of the Reachers and the plot was unexpected and gripping.
Roxy was a great character, I really enjoyed him. In fact, all of them were good because they were a little different than the normal heroes you get in films and books. These men, Roxy, Charlie, and his brother John are all deeply flawed and I’m beginning to understand why. If they got a black eye, or split lip, it hurt for days. It was real and therefore made the characters so much more realistic.
There were lots of minor characters all fully formed. Everything came together for a big finale and it was a stunning read. My best book of the year!
We all put faces to our characters and mine were very clear from the start. So for the first time on Book Buzz, I’m going to share them with you.
John and Charlie
You may recognise Charlie Sheen and Dominic Monaghan. So yes, I could imagine this as a film so easily and I just hope this book gets the credit it deserves. You can get it on Kindle Unlimited and read it for free, if not, go buy a copy, you won’t be disappointed!
