I was given a free copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.
BLURB FROM THE COVER
Carl Logan was the perfect agent. A loner, with no real friends or family, he was trained to deal with any situation with cold efficiency, devoid of emotion.
But Logan isn’t the man he used to be, or the asset he once was. Five months ago his life changed forever when he was captured, tortured and left for dead by Youssef Selim, one of the world’s most violent terrorists.
When Selim mysteriously reappears in Paris, linked to the kidnapping of America’s Attorney General, Logan smells his chance for revenge.
Pursuing his man relentlessly, oblivious to the growing trail of destruction that he leaves in his wake, Logan delves increasingly deep into the web of lies and deceit surrounding the kidnapping.
Finally, he comes to learn just what it means to Dance with the Enemy.
They say that before you die your whole life flashes before you. But nobody can know for sure what happens in those moments before death. If you do see your life flashing before your eyes, does that mean you’ve got no chance? And if it doesn’t, does that mean you’re going to be okay?
I thought Dance With The Enemy was okay. It was readable. I’ve read much worse but I’ve also read a lot better. For me, Dance With The Enemy was a middle of the road crime novel. I enjoyed reading it at the time. However, nothing about Sinclair’s novel stayed in my head and I’d be hard-pushed to remember much about it in a month’s time. One of the best aspects was the character Logan. I really liked him. He was sort of fucked up and made terrible choices which made him very real and sort of lovable. Logan was the sort of guy you could get behind. Logan was Dance With The Enemy’s saving grace. I also loved the unexpected turn of event towards the end when Logan discovers just what his love interest, FBI agent Grainger is really up to. I never saw that coming so was pleasantly surprised. Dance With The Enemy was written by a competent author and fast paced. For me, unfortunately, nothing about the novel made it really stand out.
