Sam Nachez, boss of bosses of the global mafia, and the man that Najah is both supposed to protect and betray to the authorities, is on the run after a coup by one of his rivals. Hunted by killers from the Russian, Chinese and American intelligence services, the two of them are rapidly running out of allies. Will Najah be able to reconcile her various loyalties? In order to survive, she will have to take the biggest gamble of her life...
Apparently this volume is “end of season 1” and it has taken a few years to get here. I reviewed the first volume over on the old WordPress CBO…was it 2010? That’s a volume a year –the last volume I reviewed was, again, over 9 months ago. Luckily there is a “What happened previously” at the start of this book. Seriously, my interest has waned through the delays and that is a pity and I know of two people who told me they had given up.
The action here is fast and furious and bloody. As you would expect the story has everything you would want from an action thriller and the art is lovely and detailed with great colour work by Jocelyne Charrance. The cover, as always with this series, is simple yet striking.
With this “season 1” completed now may be the time to buy 1-7 and I promise you it is a great read and full of twists and turns and, of course, superb artwork and covers!
