  • Brilliant Fourth Outing

    This copy was provided to me by the author as an Advanced Readers Copy to provide an honest review. I am a big fan of the Amsterdam Assassin since I discovered the series a few years ago. The series revolves around Katla a freelance assassin and her blind boyfriend Bram. This is the fourth instalment in terms of full length novels and four shorter “Kill-Files”. In addition to a separate standalone title “In Pocket”. I am keeping this review spoiler free. Ghosting is a massively multilayered story with some massively unpredictable twists throughout. The previous three books in the series have been massively significant in building up to this story and the scene has now been set. Bram has asked Katla to take a break from her employment of choice. However the DEA have other ideas and are out to catch her out at any cost. The book itself is absolutely my favourite of the series so far, it manages to take the best parts of the previous outings and the increased character development brings the reader even closer to characters. This book has giving more of a background to the main characters and it feels as though these characters have evolved greatly since I was first introduced to them back in the first book “Reprobate”. Martyn introduces the various main plots and allows the story to build around these main arcs. In this outing we have the two main events being the arrival of Zephs brother from the Caribbean, the DEA chasing Katla, Off these two main arcs there are a number of events which are linked and the the desperation of the DEA to catch Katla is almost sickening and there is no level they will not sink to. By the end of the book I found myself hating the American characters and hoped that they would get what they deserve. The interactions between the characters is first rate and you really get a feel for the emotions experienced between the participants in the conversation. The expanded character development really explored the history of each main character and as a reader I better understood why certain characters react in the way that they do. The explanation of Katla’s history whilst not vital gave a huge insight into her character and without wishing to publish spoilers her history is fundamental to this story in lots of aspects. With respect to the ending I was truly expecting a kind of “expendables” ending but the story evolved to be so much more than a gun fest with a very cleverly crafted dynamic ending. The ending was highly believable and did not feel in any way contrived or a requirement for a suspension of reality. A truly great story which brings together the stories of the first three books in a dramatic climax and takes the story forward into a new era which I will look forward to experiencing in due course. I will look forward to seeing how Martyn Halm takes this story forward now as he has hugely changed the dynamic of the series in this story and am sure that we have not seen the last of Katla, Bram, Zeph and the DEA agents who have brought this story to life. Martyn V Halm as an author really encourages you to go on a journey with the characters and this book is no exception and in fact in this case it is more of a roller coaster. If you have not read any of these books I urge you to do so and would recommend starting with the first novel in the series Reprobate.

    Thanks for your feedback!
