When a car thief takes his 3 year old son's life, Tom Gray was devastated. He and his wife struggled to get back to a normal life. Then Tom's wife took her life because she couldn't live without her son. Tom was left alone and angry. He and some military colleagues put together a plan to kidnap and punish the young man responsible for his son's death. They decide to include other criminals too. Ones who had been given a slap on the wrist and set free to live a life of crime. While Tom is planning what to do, a group of Muslim men from Afghanistan and Pakistan are planning their own battle. They decided to attack the British on their own soil. What happens next is a battle no one expected and an out come no one could have predicted.
This book is exceptional! You can put yourself in Tom Gray's place and sympathize with what he decides to do. Then to see how easily a group of terrorists can put together their own battle and threaten the lives of thousands of people is scary. I found this book to be one you just can't put down and if you do put it down, it's in your thoughts. This book will make an awesome blockbuster movie one day.
The only problem I had was the rape scene. I felt it was unnecessary to include it in this particular book. They could have simply beaten her or starved her to get the info they needed.
I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it will be an award winning movie someday.
