International criminals care only about the money and the power they have over people. When things do not go their way, they eliminate those people whom they feel are responsible for any inconvenience in obtaining it.
In Deadly Impasse, Mr. Gallacher gives the reader a thrilling adventure around that theme. A drug trafficking team, ex-Legionnaires, have lost money and are out to eliminate the persons responsible even though those people had no control of the events that led to the loss.
In aggressive counter operations, International Security Partners', an internationally known small group, protects the person at the center of the criminals’ grief. Crossing borders and continents, the action moves from one country to another leading to a surprising conclusion.
Mr. Galacher's characters are well developed and colorful since this is the fifth in his Jack Calder series. However, the book can be read alone because he flawlessly brings them alive without reference to prior books.
I still would read the others in this series as I have; each stands alone and will keep the reader's attention. All are page turners.
