Gray Salvation (A Tom Gray Novel Book 6)

Gray Salvation (A Tom Gray Novel Book 6)

by Alan McDermott

When the body of an MI5 operative is found floating in the Thames, police frogmen find a significant clue nearby: Nikolai Sereyev, an MI5 informer and mid-level player in a Russian criminal organisation. Both men have been brutally murdered.
Andrew Harvey is tasked with finding his colleague’s killer, and quickly uncovers a plot to assassinate a visiting dignitary on British soil. No sooner has he scraped the surface of the case than the tables are turned and he becomes a pawn in a game of international brinkmanship that leads all the way to the Kremlin.
Harvey’s girlfriend, Sarah, also a secret service operative, is hot on his trail, but when she too becomes compromised, security chief Veronica Ellis knows there is only one man she can turn to. He’s a loose cannon, but she needs his help to rescue her agent and prevent a full-blown international incident.
The trouble is, Tom Gray has gone to ground. Finding him is just the beginning.
This book is the sixth in the series but can be enjoyed equally as a standalone novel.

*I received this in exchange for an honest review*
I'm a huge fan of Nelson Demille. I enjoy political thrillers. This book was picked up on NetGalley and I can say the author does well with keeping you in the loop. I didn't feel like it was book 6 in a series. It felt like book 1. The problem is that I didn't like Gray. I felt that he wasn't the hardcore agent that the book was trying to make him out to be. I felt he was bumbling and landing into things by luck. I wasn't impressed by him. I suppose I'm just too well versed in the ways of my favorite authors characters.
The plot was unbelievable too. It was just so far out there that it's hard to really get into it. I think the author can write well, there's a lot in here that made me realize that. Unlike some books in this genre, it's not dragging or slow. It's not slow. It's just not exciting. It's action packed but I couldn't believe a word of it.
