Aidan McRaney is trying to stay away from his shadier past in this James Bond style thriller, but the offer of fifteen thousand pounds from Agency boss Nick Lombardi is too good to pass up. Lombardi needs someone to infiltrate the lair of ‘The Widow’.
No agent has survived previous missions and Lombardi believes it’s McRaney’s knowledge of the criminal underworld that will give him the edge. An arms dealer, The Widow is in league with the L.A. Mafia and has bought a house on a remote island off the Cornish coast, far enough away from the mainland where the arms can be both smuggled and tested. When Don Giorgio Avonicci arrives, accompanied by his female bodyguard, McRaney finds it’s not just the weapons being tested but his commitment to his wife in London.
This is the fourth book in the Aidan McRaney series which began with his release from prison in the book Stalking Aidan.
DANGEROUS CARGO by J.M. Shorney is a gritty, action-packed, fast-paced thriller that will drag you into the shadier aspects of this world we live in, and keep you entertained throughout. Aidan McRaney has paid his dues and served his time for his previous crimes and is trying his best to go straight. With a mortgage, a young wife, and two kids to provide for, he is doing everything he can to build up his landscaping business and make an honest living. But when clients discover his nefarious past, getting work becomes more difficult. When an old acquaintance is gunned down in front of him, Aidan suddenly finds himself thrust back into the criminal underworld, only this time he is working undercover for the good guys - if such a thing exists. But as Aidan gets deeper and deeper into his new life, he will find himself questioning so many things around him, especially himself. With plenty of bloodshed, allegiances, suspense and lies, DANGEROUS CARGO by J.M. Shorney has plenty of twists and turns to hold your attention. While it is the fourth instalment of the series, it was my first encounter with this character and it can easily be read as a standalone, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖📖 4
Jean Shorney is a writer in the South of England. Jean’s books cover a wide range of topics, from horror to gangland, while experimenting with other genres.
The modern phenomena of self-publishing has given Jean the opportunity to show her work to a wide audience. Her work has already drawn favourable interest from readers voraciously enjoying the exploits of her characters.
Jean grew up in rural West Berkshire, which is a place rife with tales of folklore and lurid ghost stories. These tales ignited the writer’s passion for writing, allowing her to weave her own tales while absorbing books from classics to science fiction.
Classics such as Dickens’ works were often given as presents by her family, while Jean sought out writers like Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov, which were sourced from places such as the nearby American airbase. Along with these authors, other influences such as Jack Higgins’ thrillers, and classic TV like The Outer Limits and Gunsmoke, really piqued Jean’s interest in different styles or storytelling.
Now, following a happy marriage and raising two children, Jean has thrown herself back into her writing, exploring the platforms the Internet is offering. For more information:
