Blackout by Chris Ryan

This book takes SAS diversion from the usual pattern of Chris Ryan's books. The lead character wakes up not knowing who he is, where he is, or why he's there.

Certain things hint that he might be a soldier but he really does not know.

The blurb on the back reports a possible terrorist threat is turning the power off in captial cities around the world. That's the plot, but the book does not leap into that because the lead characters main plot is finding out who the heck he is!

The writing in the story is as good as any of the Chris Ryan books and as usual the action is pretty constant as is the pain the poor lead character has to go through.

If you've liked any of the previous Chris Ryans books then your likely to like this one as well.

It has as much action as his other novels but is improved by the mystery of the lead character has to solve, "Who am I"?
