Rule number one for an agent of the secretive JIA is to follow orders, no matter what.
But James Ryker has never cared much for rules. He only wants to do what is right.
Assigned to join of crew of elite security personnel in Chabon, Africa, Ryker’s mission objective is clouded by politics and obfuscation, and he knows only that to protect British interests in the region, he is to infiltrate the close protection team of the government of Chabon, a country with a dark and violent past.
Arriving in Chabon’s crumbling capital, Kilpassa, Ryker finds a country on the brink of civil war. A growing civilian rebellion threatens peace, with claims of atrocities committed by both sides, including the frail government run by enigmatic President Benyu – a former military general who took control of the country in a violent coup.
Drawn into Benyu’s inner circle, it soon becomes clear to Ryker that in Chabon, the lines between good and bad, and right and wrong, are nearly impossible to identify.
With a crisis of epic proportions unfolding before his eyes, Ryker knows one thing for sure: with or without the backing of his superiors, he must take drastic action, and quickly, or risk putting millions of innocent lives in danger.

This series is second to none. The book really showed me a lot and while I didn’t find that this was the same as the other books it was still very good. As series goes on I find often that this happens.
James Ryker is still a great character for me as he has such a personality that makes me want to find out more about him. What makes you like him or well even dislike him is his powerful nature. He is strong and he is very competent and can kill on a whim if it so suits him.
The story had a great premise but seemed a bit off for some reason. I did like it but I think what I liked most about it was the characters. The author has a great ability to keep you enthralled with his characters which to me is more important than the story.
