Gray Retribution: A Tom Gray Novel Book 4 (Thomas Mercer 2014) by Alan McDermott is the fourth in the Tom Gray series, about an ex-SAS warrior who’s created a career out of teaching vulnerable countries to defend themselves against attacks. After losing his wife and child to a vicious murderer, he has surprisingly gotten a second chance at life and wants to bury himself in a world that includes his new wife and child and no murder or mayhem. When his wife’s uncle runs into trouble with local hoods, Gray tries to help him with disastrous results. Compounding that, soldier friends are stuck in the middle of a civil war in Africa and Gray needs to effect a rescue.
This is a fast-moving action thriller that rarely lets the reader catch his/her breath. Gray is an interesting character, maybe a tad flat, maybe defined a bit too often by cliche emotions and expected reactions rather than what would catapult him to a fascinating character. But the plot never stops, always leaves readers guessing, right up to the surprise ending. Definitely give it a try if you like action thrillers.
