Ryan Lock – my new hero!

June 22, 2015

I’ve found a new author! Ever vigilant to a new read, I’ve started following author Sean Black and his hero Ryan Lock.  I have managed to read all  four of his books in just sean blackover a week, so let’s hope Mr Black is a prolific writer!

Ryan Lock is an  ex-military personal protection officer who, with his co-worker Ty, find themselves in various tricky situations. The writing I have to say isn’t always slick although you can see an improvement through the series even though the third book feels like it was written first, due to the fact that it’s a bit rough, but the storylines are original and the characters likeable. There is also a touch of humour and a great back story with several plot twists even I didn’t see coming!

Mr Black isn’t Lee Child or Robert Crais but in all honesty some of their early work doesn’t hold up too close to inspection either. As with all writers, I think, time improves their art and with judicious editing and a good team behind them any author will improve as Mr Black seems to have done.  If you want an action thriller with good plots, a lead character who isn’t perfect and support cast who are interesting and likeable then have a look. If nothing else it will tide you over until the new Lee Child and Robert Crais books come out towards the end of 2015.

Until next time
