The Englishman

Klaxon alert! Discover full-on heart-pounding action, plus
smart, sharp writing in this absolute reading feast of a book. Travelling from
Africa to the UK and ending in Russia, former Foreign Legion Commando Dan
Raglan is on a hunt that guarantees death. This is the first in what promises
to be a smash-hit spy thriller series and I already can’t wait for the next
book. The prologue throws you straight into October 2019 with a man running
through a frozen Russian forest while bullets whip towards him. Chapter one
turns to 2013 and from here we get to know Dan Raglan. As an introduction, it’s
spot on, within pages I was on board and by his side. Author David Gilman is a
former firefighter, paratrooper, and photographer and now writes full time. His
words build a vivid picture, this world feels authentic and I read with full
confidence. I was so involved in the unfolding story that my thoughts didn’t
skim backwards or forwards, I purely existed in each moment as it hit. And boy,
each moment lands with ferocious intensity. Shockwaves of action expanded and
the storyline tripped me with unexpected developments. Even though I had read
the prologue, the ending still came with a whammy. LoveReading Book of the
Month - tick, LoveReading Star Book - tick, one of my personal Picks of the
Month - tick! The Englishman comes with a tremendous thumbs up from me, more
please!
