Revue de presse :

Walkley pits CIA agents against a maniacal Saudi prince intent on starting World War III in this debut thriller. Delta Force operative Lee McCloud, aka Mac, finds himself in Mexico, trying to rescue two teenage girls kidnapped by a drug cartel. But things go from bad to worse when the villains don t play by the rules. Framed for two murders he didn't commit, Mac has two options: go to prison or go to work for a CIA black-op group run by the devious Wisebaum, who hacks into terrorists, bank accounts and confiscates millions of dollars. However, there's more going on than meets the eye; Saudi Prince Khalid is in possession of nuclear canisters, with which he hopes to alter world history. Khalid also dabbles in trafficking young women, and harvesting and selling human organs. When Wisebaum's black-op team targets Khalid s father, the action becomes even more intense. With so many interweaving subplots kidnapped girls, Israeli undercover agents, nuclear weapons and a secret underwater hideout it could be easy to lose track of what's going on. But the author's deft handling of the material ensures that doesn't occur; subplots are introduced at the appropriate junctures and, by story's end, all are accounted for and neatly concluded. Mac is portrayed as a rough and ready action-hero, yet his vulnerabilities will evoke empathy in readers. He finds a love interest in Tally, a hacker whose personality is just quirky enough to complement his own. All Walkley's primary characters are fleshed out and realistic, with the exception of Wisebaum a malicious, double-dealing, back-stabber of the worst ilk; the reader is left wondering about Wisebaum's motivations behind such blatant treachery. Despite this, Walkley's beefy prose and rousing action sequences deliver a thriller to satisfy any adrenaline addict. --Kirkus Reviews

More than a book about terrorism or middle-eastern culture, more than a novel about the slave trade or covert operations, NO REMORSE is a book that is and offers the it's readers more of everything. It has more action, more adventure and more thrills per page than any novel I have recently read. NO REMORSE is a novel as strong as the hero s and heroines residing within its pages and works on many levels by combining intricate plotting, flawless execution, serious subject matter and lightening pacing. This is not the type of book you go to for in depth philosophical discussions. This is where you go for pure escapism, an action packed story and a riveting reading experience. In this tale of plots and sub-plots author Ian Walkley has managed to create a gritty tale featuring a former Delta Forces commander, Lee (Mac) McCloud, whose personal rescue mission is side-tracked by a government agent named Derek. Faintly reminiscent of Lee Child s protagonist Jack Reacher Walkley s McCloud, like Reacher, is a man you would want on your side. Both characters are cut from the same cloth with each possessing a military background, a relatively quiet personal nature, as well as an innate intelligence and a ram-rod straight moral compass. It's a pretty safe bet that Reacher would have been a willing recruit for this adventure that moves from it s beginning in Mexico to its explosive ending somewhere in the Middle-East . I will not go into the details of the story since it would ruin the reading experience for you. Suffice to say, if you are a lover of books with plenty of page turning action, a charismatic hero and female characters who are as strong and dedicated as their male counterparts this is a book for you. --Red Rock Bookworm (Amazon US) - Vine Voice

If you like to see justice delivered with a bang, you should enjoy No Remorse. This is my first time reading an Ian Walkley novel, maybe because he s a new voice on the thriller scene. However, after reading No Remorse, I look forward to Ian's next thriller --D. West Bones (Amazon US) - Vine Voice

If you like to see justice delivered with a bang, you should enjoy No Remorse. This is my first time reading an Ian Walkley novel, maybe because he s a new voice on the thriller scene. However, after reading No Remorse, I look forward to Ian's next thriller with great anticipation. No Remorse was a roller coaster ride from page one and continued its twisting ride until the last chapter, seemingly bursting off the pages with intensity. Bravo to Walkley for writing a thriller that has so many great subplots gracefully merging into one great read. Its been a while since I ve found a thriller so readable with characters that are well developed enough to care about, both good and bad. The novel is very relevant for today, and includes a lot of story lines prevalent in today's crazy world. Without giving away too much, I will tempt you with some of the subplots Ian uses: child abductions, oil and its place in American politics, Saddam Hussein's purported legacy, secret CIA operatives, Israeli elite forces, assassins, mid Eastern culture and characters, and wealthy terrorists. To set the stage let me share a part of the storyline. The main protagonist, Mac, a former member of Delta forces, is traded to a covert CIA team for a special assignment in lieu of receiving an unwarranted dishonorable discharge for a project that went south. His new team members, having heard an incomplete distasteful account of Mac s character, are leary of his participation, especially since the last military member of the team was wacko and left a very bad image, particularly on Tally, the only female on this CIA team. Her lack of trust in Mac and complete disgust with his morality sets the stage for what becomes a thrilling adventure into the world of espionage surrounding the antics of an exiled Saudi Sheik millionaire. Not knowing who to trust, including your own team leader, sets the tone for a minefield plot that has potential for far-reaching consequences for Mac, Tally, and even the entire unstable world scene. The chapters are short and each one ends in a way that forces you to read just one more chapter before you realize you simply can not put this adventure novel down. The title No Remorse originally applied to Mac and his actions in the course of completing missions. Before the novel ends you ll not only understand this mantra but will, like Tally, embrace it as your own. As Walkley acutely but expansively displays the many evils in the world today you will likely cheer when the bad guys go down and when the good guys prevail. And you will definitely understand the title. I highly recommend No Remorse and hope that it is picked up by the movie industry; it certainly has all the ingredients to make a blockbuster. Welcome Ian Walkley, job well done!!! --D. West Bones (Amazon US) - Vine Voice

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Lee McCloud (Mac) has a reputation as a loose cannon. So when a secret agency operating outside the law recruits him for his special operations skills his team leader Tally, a tough, attractive computer genius, is ordered to keep him on a tight leash. But a tight leash is the last thing Mac wants. His intent is to use the agency's massive resources to track down Sophia, a close friend's daughter, who has been kidnapped in Mexico. From the beginning, sparks fly between Mac and Tally. Mac sees Tally as an office worker, not qualified for field operations. For her part, Tally views Mac as little more than a cold-blooded killer. The conflict escalates as the two are forced to play at husband and wife in order to get close to their next target. Ignoring orders to stay out of trouble, Mac enlists the help of Scotty, a British soldier, and Jog, a Lebanese fixer. They follow the kidnappers' trail to Paris, where events lead them to suspect Sophia is a captive of Sheik Khalid, a billionaire Saudi exile who is suspected of supporting terrorist groups by shipping weapons, drugs and slaves on his luxury vessel, Princess Aliya. Mac and Tally discover they have feelings for each other, but events lead Mac to question whether Tally is working to another agenda. With time running out, the group dodges assassins, corrupt generals, evil medicos, Mossad agents, corrupt bureaucrats and sharks. But they cannot anticipate what is waiting for them on Khalid's fortress island of Andaran, or that there's much more at stake than Sophia...

Description du livre Marketec Pty, Limited, Australia, 2012. Paperback. État : New. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Two men, exiles from their respective societies, take conflicting approaches in the quest to regain their place and self-respect, and find themselves on a collision course. Lee McCloud ( Mac ), a special forces soldier facing trumped-up charges of murder, is forced to work for a mysterious government outfit operating outside the law. Khalid Yubani, cast out of Saudi Arabia for an offence against another member of the Royal family, seeks revenge through ruthless acts of evil. Engaged in the worst forms of human trafficking, Khalid buys Sophia, the daughter of Mac s best friend, who has been kidnapped in Mexico. With time running out for Sophia, Mac enlists the help of a beautiful computer genius, a British SAS soldier and a Lebanese fixer to try to find Sophia and save her from the terrifying fate that Khalid has in store. Although starting the quest as a man with no remorse, Mac gradually discovers a side of himself that he suppressed after witnessing the abduction of his own sister many years before. Dodging assassins, corrupt generals, evil medicos, Mossad agents, corrupt bureaucrats, and sharks, Mac ignores the order to stay out of trouble and follows Sophia s trail from Mexico to Paris, London and Dubai, and the island of Andaran, where Khalid and his henchmen are waiting.
