    1. I blamed Chris Allen for a lot of things whilst I was reading this book Dog s were left hoping for games and walks Not my fault Cat s balefully batted toys on sticks with nobody holding onto the other end Nothing to do with me Pet pigs resorted to throwing their food bowls around in the air because their giant tennis ball wouldn t throw itself Who me It was actually rather too easy to ignore all but the bare essentials around the place when deep in the second INTREPID book HUNTER.As in the first [...]


    2. HUNTER, the follow up to the first in the INTREPID series, DEFENDER, is just as action packed as its predecessor This time round, Intrepid agent Alex Morgan dons of a police investigator persona in search of kidnapped star Charly Further enhancing his mission is that Charly, not only a famous pianist, is also the goddaughter of Morgan s boss, Davenport and the daughter of a prominent ICTY judge heading up a complex trial to put away a bunch of dangerous war criminals.Comparisons between Bond an [...]


    3. I love the exciting action novels by Chris Allen Two great stories that you can tell are based in than than just a little fact with the way the action goes down and you can imagine yourself right in the thick of it as you read I have read both books and you can t put them down when you start I am already nagging Chris about Book 3


    4. First, I should say that I was provided with a copy of Hunter, in ebook format, for review purposes This has not influenced my review Hunter isn t in a genre that I read often I am, however, willing to venture beyond my normal bounds to some degree.Hunter is a thriller of a very modern type, featuring the ex SAS hero, Major Alex Morgan A member of Interpol s covert Intrepid branch, he is called upon to carry out operations that the usual force is not equipped for In this novel, he is pitted agai [...]


    5. I purchased Chris Allen s Hunter, Intrepid 2 because I had heard of it and was curious I hadn t read the first Intrepid book but didn t feel that was a disadvantage as I read this one.Hunter gets straight into the action, with no boring preamble And action is what this author does very, very well I love his freeze frame style of describing fights so that you can visualise every punch His weapon specifics are spot on, and nicely varied from the usual brands that pop up in the thriller genre.The p [...]


    6. There is so much to like about Chris Allen s second book the action is tight and punchy, the characters are developed since Defender Intrepid 1, and the story is great But the standouts for me are truly based on Chris tag as being a writer of escapist action thrillers for realists As per Defender his attention to detail shows his knowledge of the military, world issues, and law enforcement Alex Morgan isn t a guy who barges in with all guns blazing he s a gatherer of evidence, a strategist, and [...]


    7. After thoroughly enjoying the first in this ongoing series of realist action thrillers, I was all revved up for this second release by Chris Allen It didn t let me down Another rip roaring adventure, spiced throughout with realistic action scenes and appropriately dark and menacing villains.Fast paced and well plotted, this book is something I highly recommend for any lover of James Bond, Andy McNab, Chris Ryan, and or Matthew Reilly s Scarecrow series.At only a few bucks for the ebook, it s a c [...]


    8. This is only the second iBook that I have ever downloaded the First one was Intrepid 1 and I couldn t put it down It s great to see an Aussie author mixing it with the world s best expect to see a box office smash when they produce the first Alex Morgan movie can t wait


    9. I loved this book I loved the first book too, but with this one you can see Chris Allen has grown so much as a writer.The way he moves back and forwards between different storylines via chapters is reminiscent of Tom Clancy, a style I like I wanted to keep reading as you knew that the next chapter would take you to a different place in the world and another aspect of the story unfolding His characters are believable, human, and you can empathise or despise along with him.Knowing his admiration f [...]


    10. Wow I have just finished reading Hunter Intrepid 2 the second novel by Chris Allen What can I say Having hungrily digested every word, scene and chapter in Defender Intrepid 1 just over 12 months ago, it was with great anticipation that I awaited the follow up adventure I wasn t disappointed Once again, Chris has the ability to place the reader right there in every chapter It is thoroughly believable an absolutely fantastic read which had me on the edge of my seat Alex Morgan has become one of m [...]


    11. Chris has delivered a worthy sequel to Defender of the Faith Defender Hunter is a cracking read, with the action coming thick and fast across Europe and North Africa Alex Morgan is, of course, in the thick of it but it certainly doesn t all go his way, a feature which I find very refreshing Chris also introduces another great character to the INTREPID team, one I suspect we ll be seeing quite a bit of.The feel of this book was very Bond esque, not surprising given the author s love of Ian Flemi [...]


    12. I downloaded Hunter yesterday and finished it today, couldn t put it down Chris has created a great story that pulls you along, wanting to know what happens next, unable to stop turning the pages I felt I was in the action, experiencing the highs and lows of the protagonist The story has a great blend of action and real world insight that could only come from experience of that world As an ex soldier I particularly enjoyed the details that could only come from experience such as how to identify [...]


    13. So much excitement from start to finish I just couldn t put it down The action moves from location to location but the story seamlessly links everything together The author has used the murky aftermath of the Bosnian Serb war to set the theme and this has provided a long list of bad guys for the hero Alex Morgan to relentlessly work his way through A great read just in time for the holidays



    14. Hunter is the second book by Chris Allen to feature Interpol black ops agent, Alex Morgan This fast paced, action packed thriller pits the INTREPID soldier against Serbian war criminals determined to evade justice.Hunter opens with Morgan in the midst of a clandestine mission to take into custody known Serbian warlord, Serifovic, from his compound in Corfu, Greece But the agent s well planned, solo assault goes awry when he is surprised by one of guards and a vicious fight ensues It s not the la [...]


    15. The aftertaste of blood and gunmetal makes it clear these books are written by a real soldier Chris Allen may be relatively new to the role of novels, but he has a head start on many of his colleagues According to his bio, Chris Allen writes escapist action thrillers for realists, having seen and done it all Serving in three Commonwealth armies across two decades and four continents, one of the paratrooping elite, Chris saw the world from under a billowing parachute, often by night, entering for [...]


    16. The complete review is posted here quintessentiallybookish 20Plot Alex Morgan is the type of agent that is called on to complete missions that the regular force can t Serbian war criminals turned gangster have started targeting the families of judges in an attempt to avoid prosecution Morgan must track down and stop the Serbians, in order to save the judge s daughter and ensure the criminals are brought to justice.Overall Thoughts I didn t love this book, though I couldn t really tell you exactl [...]


    17. Chris hasn t made this review easy to write I want to create suspense, to make you think that there s something, even just one little thing, in this book I didn t like or couldn t relate to, but the problem is that I only have praise Once again, Chris delivers I loved Hunter equally as much as Defender Both books are now sitting at equal first on my TOP READS list.Hunter Intrepid 2 is a rollercoaster ride of action, suspense and espionage that you really don t want to miss Chris throws you into [...]


    18. Hunter is a a slam, bang, crash action thriller with an unstoppable hero, Alex Morgan, who is an agent of Intrepid, the sword of Interpol They are, of course, black ops, and that Interpol connection and grounding in dirty European history and politics lifts the book above man books of this genre The author, Chris Allen, is himself ex military, and it shows in his details, interest in tactics, and his eye on the small skirmish as part of a much bigger picture In Hunter, Alex Morgan is on the trai [...]


    19. My book for the month is Chris Allen s Intrepid novel, Hunter I want to be clear here when I say that his publishers sent Hunter and the previous book, Defender to me to read, however I am not being paid for the post, nor have my opinions been affected by this fact Actually, if I didn t like it, I would have omitted it from the book club because I wan t this to be a place where you can trust that the books that appear here are ones I actually like.Chris is a Sydney author, and a retired Army Maj [...]


    20. Wow, what a book When you start this story set aside a few hours, you are not going to want to put it down It s that good Chris Allen has a knack for picking plots that are both interesting and believable Alex Morgan is hunting down Serbian war criminals along with the help of Hermann Braunschweiger who is a mountain of a man, with the same crazy skill base as Alex When the action scenes begin, you find yourself being dragged along with them, and I found myself reading faster and faster Even tho [...]


    21. As an unexpected surprise from what I feared would be just another action story, Hunter was a great read, with excellent suspenseful approaches, and anticipation A real ripping yarn from Chris Allen The plots were fantastic in their simplicity, whilst revealing a darkness to international affairs and the justice emergent from the modern Serbian conflict, with a hero triumphing in the end and a beauty to seal the endeavor, saved of course from the forces of evil An enterprise accomplished with ap [...]


    22. I don t often give five stars, but I really loved this book Just wish I had hours in my day to read the story from start to finish quickly I believe this was much better than the first book moving quickly, and many twists and turns to keep me engaged Alex Morgan seems to be a man who values working with and respecting the efforts of others to achieve the desired outcome i.e Bringing the bad guy to justice Thanks for this book now onto the Intrepid 3


    23. Hunter Chris allenAlex Morgan and friends take down former Balkan war criminals in this extremely fast paced, hugely entertaining Extremely well written action packed thriller Morgan is similar to James Bond with a healthy dose of ex SAS Ben Hope A fantastic read


    24. Chris Allen has produced a written blockbuster.Six star s out of five I loved the way he guided me through this story The action was intense, the story leaping from the page I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be entertained from word one.Well done Mr Allen


    25. I have read the first novel in this series and now have read the second in this series and I don t find it any better than the first I will read the third in this series and if not any better, I probably won t read any by this author.


    26. Fun, makes you want to stay on reading.I got the first of the series for free, I bought the second the comment I finished it I think that is the best review I can give A fun fast paced thriller.


    27. Great action novel Getting better with each book Loved the real life soldier experiences dealing with explosive concussion anticipating mag changes avoiding fire lanes etc The new addition of the Key is good and I look forward to seeing the big German in action again.


    28. Another fun read The author writes conscisely, without a lot of extras, but it s extremely detailed and you fly through the story.
