So, I’m super excited for my stop on today’s blog tour! One Way Out is the fourth instalment in the Harry Virdee series.
I really enjoyed this book, so let’s get started…
A bomb detonates in Bradford’s City Park.
When the alert sounds, DC I Harry Virdee has just enough time to get his son and his mother to safety before the bomb blows. But this is merely a stunt.
The worst is yet to come.
A new and aggressive nationalist group, the Patriots, have hidden a second device under one of the city’s one hundred and five mosques. In exchange for the safe release of those at Friday prayers, the Patriots want custody of the leaders of radical Islamist group Almukhtareen – the chosen ones.
The government does not negotiate with terrorists. Even when thousands of lives are at risk.
There is only one way out.
But Harry’s wife is in one of those mosques. Left with no choice, Harry must find the Almukhtareen, to offer the Patriots his own deal. – Goodreads –
Oh man! This is one crazy rollercoaster of a read! The way I described this book to my partner was like the film London has Fallen, that is due to the crazy pace of the book with lots of action and everything happening over the course of about 24 hours.
We are thrown straight into the thick of the action as in the first few chapters we have a huge explosion at a busy park in Bradford by an aggressive group who have named themselves The Patriots while Harry was their with his family. I felt tense and stressed during the majority of this book, it’s one mans mission to prevent the bombing of the mosque and save his wife!
I really enjoyed getting to know Harry and his wife who were both from different religions which caused them to be estranged from their families. It was also the first book reading about the Sikh and Muslim backgrounds and traditions. I wish that I would have read the first three books in this series so I could have felt a deeper connection.
I really loved this book, the only reason that I gave One Way Out 4 and a half cups of coffee out of 5 is because I didn’t realise that this was number 4 in the Harry Virdee series. I would have loved to of have the back story from the past 3 instalments. I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout this whole book, while being constantly slapped in the face by what was waiting for me round the next corner. Overall this is a seriously thrilling read and I will definitely be recommending this to everyone.
