It's here: the massive debut thriller from superstar Ant Middleton, million-selling, number one Sunday Times author of First Man In and The Fear Bubble and star of SAS: Who Dares Wins. I started this book without any expectations but was pleasantly surprised by the beginning: I liked Mallory a lot more than I expected to like a thriller hero. Descriptive moments, no doubt inspired in part by Middleton’s own life, are life like, on point and transports your mind well. I read through it in a couple of evenings and from start to finish it kept me thoroughly entertained.

Mallory himself is portrayed as a complex character so the reader is not alienated from his violent actions. Mallory (reluctantly) heads to South Africa to investigate as he feels he owes Donno as he struggles with his feelings about the incident and PTSD in general. Drawing on the author's own combat experience, there is a real air of authenticity about the story, especially the scenes that recount the final fatal mission that changes Mallory and Donno's fates forever.Cold Justice" features not only a diverse cast of characters but several female characters that are interesting and dangerous on their own without being sexualized.

Some of the men serving under him lost their lives and it is this particular operation which was also responsible for Donno's current critical state. We follow Mallory across three continents as he races to discover the truth and save his friend's family.

I loved reading this book on the Pigeonhole app book club with my pigeonhole friends from around the world. Ant Middleton makes his fictional debut with a scintillating adventure, introducing the newest action figure on the scene, Mallory. It’s here: the landmark debut thriller from superstar Ant Middleton, million-selling, number one Sunday Times author of First Man In and Mental Fitness and star of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Mallory was obviously drawn from Ant's experiences and having read his biography I thought it would be a bit samey. My star rating doesn't reflect badly on what is a brilliant thrill ride of a read, for me there's something just missing, it's not quite on the centre of the target. This is the story of former Special Forces operative Mallory (no first name) who is suffering a form of PTSD and overwhelming guilt as a result of his final operation in Afghanistan which ends in the loss of most of his team. Not a genre I would normally select, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the antics of superstar Mallory who is a combo of Rambo, James Bond, and the Transporter all rolled into one. It moves at breakneck pace, and although fearless yet broken protagonist Mallory is in a position so far removed from the world most of us know, Middleton manages to make him both relatable and respectable.Yes it’s very generic, the mentally unstable ex-soldier wanting to make amends for his platoon dying in battle, blah blah. Mallory is asked by his mates mother to find her other son who has been kidnapped in South Africa… it’s a wild ride from there!
