Thomas Caine is a former assassin who is trying hard to keep a low profile in the shady streets of Thailand. He makes no emotional attachments and lives a basic low key life existing just beneath the surface. However, with an explosive background such as Caine’s, living such a quiet life was always going to be a ticking time bomb and when Naiyana, the only companion that Caine has allowed into his quiet life, is kidnapped, Caine soon has no choice other than to track her down, along with the group of girls she has been trafficked with, and bring them to safety. This means encountering some of the most dangerous men in the capital that belong to the Russian mafia, as well as facing his deadliest opponent to date, a man known to most as the Devil.
Devil’s Due is a fast paced story. Sharp and edgy, it is a thrilling read which you will want to try and finish in one sitting just to find out if Caine succeeds in this penultimate mission. The narrative is very well written by an author who obviously had as much fun writing the story as I had reading it and there are some great action scenes. It is an exciting and thrilling read with nothing to dislike. Quite brutal and extremely realistic in parts it is not a book for the faint hearted, but I thoroughly warmed to this troubled but intriguing character of Thomas Caine and I would love to read more about him, in particular about his perilous background.
Devils Due is a prequel novella to Tokyo Black, Andrews first full length novel, which is due out in the summer and this is a great taster of what is to come.
I received this book for review from the wonderful author himself, Andrew Warren.
