  1. The second Jeff Bradley novel from New Zealand author, Thomas Ryan, certainly made me really want to shunt my as yet unread copy of the first The Field of Blackbirds up in priority.A thriller in construction, THE MARK OF HALAM is fast paced, big threat, enemies on all sides, one man to save the day in style It helps that Jeff Bradley is a reluctant sort of a hero, dragged into the conflict initially when a good friend is threatened, and ultimately because there is a terrorist plot, and then ther [...]


  2. From the cover When an Olympic medalist is the subject of an attempted assassination, former SAS trooper Jeff Bradley knows his past is once again casting a shadow over his new life A note left by the assassin confirms his suspicions Bradley made an enemy back in Kosovo, and the man is out for revenge But Jeff knows the killer is not working alone higher up the ranks sits Avni Leka, a terrorist warlord who will stop at nothing to achieve his bloody goal And it s not just Bradley who is under thr [...]


  3. The Mark of halamA good action thriller with plenty of the chases and firefights one might expect The hero manages to get kicked around quite a bit as he discovered you don t respond as well or fast as you age Amazing how well the terrorists send to work together to achieve success when there is an unexpected need for a change in plans.


  4. Fast paced and action filledExcept for the premise that a US nuclear sub would dock at a wharf in New Zealand, when they anchor out in deep water in the US, the story was very compelling The main characters had a variety of backgrounds and were paired up differently in several situations, making the view points and predicted outcomes unpredictable.


  5. Straight forward intrigue An unwieldy governing structure, bright but pushy reporter, reluctant cop, and frustrated special forces retiree are forced to work together in this fine thriller The plot is believable yes, it could really happen as the threat is not far fetched A very entertaining read.


  6. Former hero brought into the frayRetired ops man brought back into the world of terrorism and evil men Strong male with great instincts and perceptive thinking This Down Under thriller is fast paced and engaging.


  7. Another great storyI m really liking Jeff, he s like a real person with grit than an all around superman that goes around unharmed I m looking forward to the next round with Jeff.

  19. The Mark of Halam eBook was published in 2015 August and was written by Thomas Ryan thomasryanwriter This is Mr Ryan s second novel I obtained a galley of this novel for review through netgalley I would categorize this novel as R as there are instances of Violence This Thriller novel is set primarily in contemporary New Zealand The primary character is Jeff Bradley, who has retired from the SAS and now has a vineyard in New Zealand.Life has settled down to a normal pace after Bradley s exploits [...]


  20. Thomas Ryan has acquired a reputation as an excellent author of thrillers, and it is a reputation that is well deserved This novel is a worthy addition to his increasing list of novels He draws and develops his characters with depth The author s knowledge and experience of military practices, gleaned from his time in the armed forces and from the input of military veterans he knows, plays a role in forming the background for the tale, but I think credit should also be given to his extensive rese [...]


  21. Brilliant.This book has it all The skill used to run all the different aspects of this story together is fabulous The main character is well written and the plot is a work of art The idea of using two different nationalities of protagonists is a twist worthy of the likes of Alistair MacLean There were a few typos, but these were easily overlooked Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable read.

  23. The Mark of HalamThomas Ryan is an excellent story teller This one introduces Jeff Bradley, ex military, currently the proud owner of a vintage wine establishment, who finds himself up to his eyeballs in finding out who is involved in a terrorist attack on a U.S nuclear submarine in the neutral harbors of New Zealand Bradley s efforts not only paint a target on his back, but on his family and friends as well Ryan takes great efforts to highlight Bradley s background and the experiences in his pa [...]


  24. At first I was afraid this thriller book was going to be too scary for my taste, but it turned out to be just fine An entertaining story with mystery, adventure, good looking strong guys, a couple interesting women, realistic fight scenes, and a good ending I especially enjoyed reading about the scenes in New Zealand, and about the people there as I have fond memories of my only visit there the week of September 11, 2001 As a visiting Yank, far from home, I was treated with loving kindness and c [...]


  25. Packs a thrilling punch.I have read and enjoyed a few of Thomas Ryan s books and his having located The Mark of Halam in New Zealand caught my interest I know the places mentioned and the harbour That gave me a personal interest in this work.I knew I was in for a great read from the opening of he first chapter in fact, that whole chapter packed a punch Now that s how to open a thriller I was hooked.It s a great novel and I m happy to highly recommend it.


  26. EnjoyableNot the most riveting action novel I have ever read, but definitely a very enjoyable novel I read the first Jeff Bradley novel and found him to be the most mild mannered former S.A.S soldier I have ever read about.The plot was good and kept me interested enough to keep the pages turning and I am glad that the author sent Jeff on a toughening up course between novels and reminded him to kill occasionally.


  27. BlahWhy do people who write about military things not consult military personnel A submarine with a hull several feet thick Really Or pistols Blocks capitalized, btw are famous for not having safeties But in general, it was just boring Poor character development, weak plot, no suspense Overall waste of time.


  28. Great thriller I always enjoy finding new authors and Thomas Ryan can get your attention fast and take you on a thrill ride I m going to read his first Jeff Bradley book as soon as possible The author writes fast paced and weaves suspense throughout You will not be disappointed by giving this writer a good reading.


  29. Second in series and as good as the first Jeff Bradley, our New Zealand SAS hero, gets to demonstrate his skills and fights his way through an Auckland adventure Have to wait to Jan 2017 for the third instalment.


  30. Great read I thought that Jeff Bradley was a hero for his country, friends and loved ones A gripping thriller right from the first chapter The book had a interesting cast of supporting characters to go along with Bradley and a fast pace with basically nonstop suspense.
