(See all my Book Reviews) – Author Alan McDermott (http://alanmcdermottbooks.co.uk) published the novel “Fight to Survive” in 2019. He has published a dozen novels. This is the third of his “Eva Driscoll” thrillers.
I received an ARC of this novel through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence. This novel continues the story of the ESO and former CIA agent Eva Driscoll.
Driscoll had thought she had escaped the ESO. She still wants to destroy them, but they pressure her into working for them. The ESO needs someone smuggled out of North Korea. As risky as this mission is she has little choice but to accept it.
What she finds in North Korea is something that she feels compelled to destroy – a prison that is selling organs. She compiles the ESO to back her so that she can free the prisoners in North Korea. Driscoll pulls most of her old team back together to strike inside of North Korea.
They not only want to free the captives, but they also need to find a way to free themselves from ESO surveillance. Driscoll knows she can’t trust the ESO. Will she and her team be able to pull off the rescue and escape the ESO?
I enjoyed the 5+ hours I spent reading this 262-page thriller. I thought that this was a good thriller. I have read all three of the ‘Eva Driscoll’ books (“Run and Hide” and “Seek and Destroy” were the other two). I have also read a couple of McDermott’s other novels (“Gray Salvation” and “Trojan”). I judge them all to be well written and enjoyable. The cover art is a little plain, but not bad. I give this novel a 4 out of 5.
