Dance with the Enemy (The Enemy, #1) by Rob Sinclair ~ Book Review

Book Description: 

Carl Logan was the perfect agent. A loner, with no real friends or family, he was trained to deal with any situation with cold efficiency, devoid of emotion. But Logan isn't the man he used to be, or the asset he once was. Five months ago his life changed forever when he was captured, tortured and left for dead by Youssef Selim, one of the world's most violent terrorists. When Selim mysteriously reappears in Paris, linked to the kidnapping of America's Attorney General, Logan smells his chance for revenge. Pursuing his man relentlessly, oblivious to the growing trail of destruction that he leaves in his wake, Logan delves increasingly deep into the web of lies and deceit surrounding the kidnapping. Finally, he comes to learn just what it means to Dance with the Enemy.

I really enjoyed this story first from the beginning. It hooks the reader into the life of Carl Logan. We learn just a tidbit of information about his recent past and always kept at a distance for what he does for work. We know he gets the bad guys and it is super dangerous. He does what needs to be done to get them. Carl has been off work after being injured, again we only learn a bit about this, then he is called back on a new mission after the Attorney General of the USA is kidnapped. This all happens in the UK. The action is fast and furious. I found some of it even brutally ugly that I grimaced at the thought of what was happening.

Who is this lady FBI that shows up out of nowhere? I really thought that this was making the plot even better, I really didn't see what was coming until the very last minute. The author does a great job with that one for sure! I must say I was hoping to see a loving relationship build between Logan and Grainger.

Keeping me on the edge of my seat. I found all the characters were really well developed and I could really feel for the main character, what he has went through and what he is still dealing with.

I am looking forward to book two. I love a fast paced detective/crime/thriller and this has been a great start to the series. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars!
