9780099432227: Greed :

Five Men. One Robbery. A deadly game of greed, revenge and betrayal is about to begin.

Fresh out of the SAS, Matt Browning is down on his luck. He owes $500,000. If he doesn't get the money soon, he dies. From nowhere, he is offered a lifeline. A hit on al-Queda, sanctioned and helped by MI5. Matt gathers a small team of former SAS men to steal $10 million in gold and diamonds from the world's most deadly terrorist organisation. MI5 will give them all the equipment and information they need. No charges will ever be pressed.

Matt thinks it's the perfect crime. Safe, quick, and patriotic. But after the money is stolen, the killing starts. Someone is taking down the members of the team one by one. A silent, expert assassin is stalking the team, gruesomely murdering both them and their families. And Matt knows that he's next.

Greed is an explosive story of what happens when terrorism, money, love and jealously combust - an explosively violent tale from the established master of the military thriller.

Review:

Pull on those camouflage fatigues, slip that knife into your boot, check your sidearm and get ready for another walk on the wild side with Chris Ryan. Greed is not particularly different from any other Chris Ryan thrillers you may have read, but that is precisely why his devoted army of followers devours each new book. Sharp plotting, flinty characterisation and (most of all) kinetically orchestrated action are par for the course with this author, and Greed delivers them all in spades.

Matt Browning has left the SAS, and life is not treating him well. For a start, he's up to his ears in debt, and if he doesn't pay the £500,000 he owes, he'll be dead. Then, out of the blue, he is given a lifeline: a carefully targeted hit on al-Qa'eda, with the full cooperation of MI5. Matt's job is to bring together a close-knit team of ex-SAS men to lift $10 million in gold and diamonds from the world's most lethal terrorist organisation. Along with MI5's clandestine assistance, there's another bonus--there will be no charges made. Needless to say, this isn't the perfect crime. The money is stolen, then the killing begins. A panther-like assassin is tracking down the team one by one, bloodily slaughtering both them and their families. Matt realises that he has to take the fight to the enemy if he himself isn't to join the dead.

We've read similar stuff before (even from Ryan), but why not another helping? Anyone who begins Greed on a train or a bus is more than likely to miss their stop, such is the unyielding grip that this latest Ryan novel instantly exerts. --Barry Forshaw
