Gabriel Wolfe Thrillers – Andy Maslen
“This novel is loaded with a courageous and despicable cast of characters. Unrelenting action from the first to last page. An action thriller of epic proportions. I highly recommend!!!” – Kindle Customer
Trigger Point – Book 1
When a right-wing billionaire stands for Parliament, he enlists the help of ex-SAS soldier, Gabriel Wolfe. Gabriel left the Army after a covert mission went disastrously wrong and has sworn never to cause another man’s death.
It quickly becomes clear that Sir Toby Maitland’s ambitions extend far beyond a seat as an MP.
An ex-contact in Swedish Special Forces, now working for MI5, contacts Gabriel, and he realises he has little choice but to try to stop his employer’s juggernaut in its tracks.
Drugs, guns and plastique.
Gabriel finds himself embroiled in deals with Hells Angels and a South African arms dealer in the US before the true nature of Sir Toby’s plan is revealed.
This is a fast-paced thriller in the same vein as early James Bond, through Robert Ludlum’s Bourne books to Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series. Expect fast cars, gunplay, nailbiting suspense and enough hardware to start a small war.
If you like your action hot and heavy and your heroes cool under fire, you’ll love Gabriel Wolfe. But be warned, beneath the calm surface deep currents are flowing. Currents that threaten to take him under every single day of his life.
“I’ve read the first two books in the series and I’m hooked. The characters are described in such detail that I feel like I could pick them out of a crowd. The story lines are exciting and fresh. [Andy Maslen’s] writing is on par with the most popular authors….of which I believe he will be too. Do yourself a favor and read the series. You won’t be disappointed.” – Kevin
First Casualty – Book 4
When Gabriel Wolfe, a government assassin afflicted by PTSD, travels to Africa to recover the body of a former SAS comrade, he has the backing of the British prime minister. But every favour comes at a price. And now Gabriel has to complete another hit before he can continue his search for salvation.
What he discovers next shakes his faith in everything he trusts. He has marched headlong into the heart of a corrupt web of land deals, blood diamonds and the global arms trade. At the centre of the web sits someone Gabriel can hardly believe is guilty. Someone he’ll need every ounce of his skills and resolve to defeat.
Standing between him and the truth are tooled-up mercenaries, a local warlord and his machete-wielding ‘Rock and Roll Boys’ and a mysterious assassin who anticipates his every move.
“A Cross Between Bond and Reacher”
This complex and breathtaking action thriller is the fourth novel in Andy Maslen’s Gabriel Wolfe series. First Casualty begins in the middle of a firefight in Africa, where Gabriel and his partner, Britta Falskog, are facing a crew of bloodthirsty militia fighters commanded by the terrifying Mama Chissano.
The action moves between London, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Hong Kong and never lets up. As he begins to uncover the truth, Gabriel sees that his adversaries have spun a web of betrayal that stretches right back to his last, fateful mission in the SAS.
Fans of Andy McNab, Chris Ryan, Lee Child and Daniel Silva are saluting Maslen as an author to watch.
If you like your heroes flawed as well as resourceful, you’ll love Gabriel Wolfe. He’s been called “deadlier than Bond”, and “more human than Reacher”.
“Another action filled thriller from this self-published author. Andy Maslen may very well be the British version of Lee Child. His books are well researched and extremely well written. The story line is both complex and tightly woven. This book, like all his previous works will keep you from getting your weekend chores done around the house!” – Bill Loy
