Sydney Morning Herald review

By Chris Allen

Momentum, $27.99

Chris Allen has been there, done that himself, a former elite paratrooper for 20 years, who moved into law enforcement and humanitarian aid work. His background makes you wonder how much of his books are based in fact, and that's the scary bit. We've only recently discovered Allen and his protagonist Alex Morgan, Hunter is the second book in the Intrepid series, but he's on the reading list now. Intrepid is the black ops division of Interpol, and here Morgan is on the hunt for Serbian war criminals. In a way it was nice to get away from the War on Terror, different bad guys made this a more interesting read, without meaning to offend anyone. More Ludlum than Reilly; if you like action you have to think about, try Allen.
