Five million reasons why Ben Koenig had to disappear. Only one to bring him back . . .
Ben Koenig is a ghost. He doesn’t exist any more.
Six years ago it was Koenig who headed up the US Marshal’s elite Special Ops group. They were the elite unit who hunted the bad guys – the really bad guys. They did this so no one else had to.
Until the day Koenig disappeared. He told no one why and he left no forwarding address. For six years he became a grey man. Invisible. He drifted from town to town, state to state. He was untraceable. It was as if he had never been.
But now Koenig’s face is on every television screen in the country. Someone from his past is trying to find him and they don’t care how they do it. In the burning heat of the Chihuahuan Desert lies a town called Gauntlet, and there are people in there who have a secret they’ll do anything to protect. They’ve killed before and they will kill again.
Only this time they’ve made a mistake. They’ve dismissed Koenig as just another drifter – but they’re wrong. Because Koenig has a condition, a unique disorder that makes it impossible for him to experience fear. And now they’re about to find out what a truly fearless man is capable of. Because Koenig’s coming for them. And hell’s coming with him . . .
First I must say a huge thank you to Beth Wright at Little Brown Books for sending me a Proof copy of Fearless and a press pack, this is the most excited I’ve been to receive a book post for years! It is cherished and will be kept on my collectors shelf!
Onto Fearless, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will undoubtedly have heard of M.W Craven and his Washing Poe and Tilly Bradshaw novels, these are extremely gripping books with fabulous plots and mysteries throughout, and I’m a huge fan.
However Fearless is the first in a new series of books, about Ben Koenig a former US Marshall who has been off the radar for six years, no one knew where he was. But he is forced into the open when his former boss’s daughter goes missing, and it seems Ben is the only person able to locate her.
This book was just bloody superb, Ben Koenig is fearless ( you will find out more in the book) and his character is sublime, I loved him from the outset! Fearless is brutal, violent and an absolute BANGER of a novel. The way Mike Craven has written the story is pure perfection, you are totally invested from the first page and you follow Ben Koenig through some sticky situations. I loved the way there is so much research that has clearly gone into writing Fearless, the information included in this novel is so engaging and totally makes the character of Ben Koenig leap off the page!
This is a bloody, gritty, violent read of a thriller and I just adored it, I actually think this is M.W Craven’s best book he has written so far! It took me 2 days to read, I just could not put it down, it’s got that almost boys’ own adventure feeling to it, but with guns and stuff! This has to be in my top 5 books of the year, and I am pretty sure nothing will top it!
If you like a gripping, thriller then Fearless is going to be a book you will want to clear a few days for, to read as you will not be able to put it down! I cannot wait to see what happens to Ben Koenig is Book 2!
A HUGE 5-star rating for Fearless!
