Everyone has a breaking point. Carl Logan might just have found his.

If you like Action Spy Thrillers, then you will love this book. I enjoyed the way this story is written, swapping between the past with Carl Logan being locked up, and to the present with who he can trust. A well-developed plot, with likeable characters. Once again Rob Sinclair has shown he has a talent for writing, and I’ll be adding him to my must read list.
This second book in the series comes a little over a year after the release of the first and while time between releases holds no significance, I point this out to explain why I might be very impressed with Mr. Sinclair. I have read both books and can tell you that this one is better than the first. That fact has nothing to do with the story line, characters, location or the like but everything to do with the authors writing in general. This book, for lack of a better term, read better. The book picks up after the events of the first as many do and Carl is still battling with the emotional and physical repercussions of those events. In Russia this time, on a mission that many sane operatives probably would question or refuse but Carl arguably is not in his right mind. He has a new partner, unfamiliar to him but vetted by those he trusts. The saying "as luck would have it", does not seem totally appropriate for the disaster that unfolds for Carl and his partner. The outcome was predetermined. A fact that will cost Carl dearly, both physically and mentally. It will call into question all the things he thought he knew. Doubts of loyalty for both Carl and those he trust most. Carl will have to fight to survive but what he's fighting for is not what he's fought for in the past. We learn a lot about Carl in the first half of the book, and then the second have we get to see the Carl we know and love, doling out destruction as he desperately tries to reach someone from his past before she's killed. The only question is will he killer once he finds her? An excellent addition to the series and if you’re looking at this and have not read the first book I would recommend getting them both and sit back and strap in for a thrill ride
Dance With The Enemy, Sinclair’s debut novel, is a wonderful introductory book to this trilogy. However, in no way did it prepare me for the roller coaster ride I was about to go on in Rise Of The Enemy. Sinclair smashed my expectations and delivered the perfect combination of mystery, face-paced action, and twist and turns that had me guessing until the very end. Having previously introduced Logan as a real life likable heroin, I was unsure of the direction Sinclair would take his character. Logan is the trick of all trades; the unsung hero of the JIA. He is a character you can’t help but root for. Sinclair brilliantly breaks down the outer shell to expose the raw core of Carl Logan. With this, Sinclair proves he is not only an author with a good imagination but a mastermind of a storyteller. The story is written in a way that allows the reader to piece together the puzzle alongside the main character. It captivates you from start to finish. Rise Of The Enemy is a truly remarkable thriller that cannot be passed up.
