Hello my loves!
Today is my stop on the blog tour for the wonderful Sleeper 13 by Rob Sinclair. If you’ve read this blog for any period of time or we’ve chatted on social media, you know that I love thrillers. At one time they were the only genre I read. I feel that this allows me to be a pretty good judge of thrillers. So, let me tell you a little about the book first.
Sleeper 13 by Rob Sinclair
As a child he was smuggled to the Middle East from his London home, to be trained as one of the most elite insurgent soldiers of his generation.
For years he was forced to do things no child should do, for a cause he couldn’t believe in.
But while his brothers were preparing to kill, he was looking for a way out.
Now, on the eve of the deadliest coordinated terrorist attacks Europe has ever seen, he’ll finally get his chance.
He will break free and hunt down those responsible for making him a monster.
He must draw on all his training, all of his deadly skills to survive.
He is Sleeper 13.
Okay, take a minute. Because I know you’ll need one after reading that….. Okay? Let’s go then.
The very first thing that caught my attention with this book was the statement that it was for fans of I Am Pilgrim. Honestly, that had me sold. I suppose after that I became a little anxious to read it, just in case it didn’t live up to that high praise. Let me tell you, I needn’t have been worried in the slightest.
Adyin was abducted as a child and forced into a life the did not understand and did not want to be a part of. Along with 12 other boys, Adyin is taught to be an insurgent. Rachel, a head-strong woman determined to stop an attack, with or without, the help of her colleagues. he dual narrative was one of my favourite aspects of this book.
The settings (and there are plenty) are so vivid you can almost close your eyes and be stood next to both Adyin and Rachel.
Sleeper 13 is high-impact, fast-paced and gripping. Truly a compulsive page-turner that is incredibly topical and is a must read for all thriller fans.
As with all thrillers I review, I’ve tried not to give too much away in this post, because you all now need to go out and pick up a copy for yourselves, so that we can gasp and gush and natter about it together.
Lucky for you dear reader, this book is available now and you can get your mitts on it from any good place that sells books!
Peace and pages
