Its hard to believe I've finished book 5 already! I love the way the story feels like one continues sort not multiple different books they lead in to each other so well!
Nick is desperate to get his American citizenship to be with the woman he loves Carrie, desperate enough to do one last job! It was simple enough go to Algeria carry out an assassination and bring back his head.

Will Nick and his team get out of this alive?
Like every other book this has been action packed! What i liked a lot about this book was it was still fast paces but it wasn't the case that Nick just got beat up constantly, a lot of the book was spent plotting and planning and although i didn't like that in another book i enjoyed it in this one because Nick and his friends were constantly moving and spying and it was exciting! I enjoyed the story and like the other books it was well written and captivating!
You will be happy to no that in this book i got a feeling that Nick's life was getting back on track! I think he realises that he doesn't need to get away from the firm, that is what he is good at and this job has given him something to be proud of, he also realises that he doesn't need Carrie's dad. I hope that he sorts things out with her i want a happy ending! I also liked that he has the closest thing he's going to have to friends!
