I had read the three previous novels in the Jack Calder series by Seumas Gallacher so I was looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Killer City.
The story line begins with the discovery of a woman’s mutilated torso in a dumpster in the north of England. Jack Calder, a former SAS officer, propses to help an old friend’s son who has been been framed for the murder. He leads his colleagues at their specialist security firm, International Security Partners, from Manchester and London across Europe to Lithuania in order to hunt down those responsible for the murder.
The story is fast-paced and what a reader would expect from an action-packed story. I did not, however, enjoy this story as much as I did the previous ones. Instead I wished for more than a description of mayhem. As this is the fourth novel centred around a same character, I wished to learn a little more about Jack Calder, the person. Having said that, the novel is perfect for a quick read – and would not have to be read in order of the series to be enjoyed.
I give this novel ⭐⭐⭐ 3 stars.
