Going Rogue by Neil Lancaster

Tom Novak is back.
When a spate of deadly terrorist attacks hit the streets of London, Tom finds himself thrust into the middle of a fight for the survival of all he holds dear.
When the attackers hit closer to home than he could ever imagine, Tom is forced to make a choice between his duty or his conscience. In doing so, he enters a series of increasingly dangerous worlds, in the darkest corners of humanity.
Can Tom and his colleagues get to the bottom of a plot which threatens the very fabric of society?
Will they stop the terrorists before it’s too late?
When faced with the ultimate choice, which way will Tom go?
After all, as Cameron always says: “Always do right, boy…”
Going Rogue is the follow-up to the hugely successful thriller, Going Dark: the book that introduced Tom Novak as the hero who, in the words of best-selling author Tony Parsons, “makes Jason Bourne look like a vegan Pilates teacher”.
Get Going Rogue today, and start a rollercoaster ride of a thriller that you won’t ever want to put down.

Going Rogue

My thoughts:

Published by Burning Chair last November, Going Rogue is the exceptional second installment in the Tom Novak series. With a strong protagonist, and an exciting plot throughout, it really is a wonderful read.

The story follows Tom Novak and his partner, as they seek to capture a Major responsible for a horrendous, religiously-motivated attack. Transnational borders are crossed as they hope to seek justice.

It can be easily read as a stand alone police procedural.

In conclusion, Going Rogue was brilliantly written and exciting from start to finish. I look forward to following this series further, and I plan to read the first installment very soon.
