The Black Hornet

The Black Hornet

Second in the James Ryker series. Another good read, slightly less fast-paced than book one. Some of the writing is a little cumbersome and would have benefitted from some cutting. The author's strength lies in writing about the settings – the scenes in the prison are particularly vivid.
