Downfall by Will Jordan – Book Review



“My name is Ryan Drake and this is just the beginning.”

Ryan Drake and his team are in hiding, having become sworn enemies of states and agencies around the world. When a CIA operative is killed in a car bomb, Drake is shocked to see an old enemy felled. Further still when a video is released claiming responsibility for the attack… under the name of Ryan Drake.

Forced out of hiding, Drake embarks upon a mission to confront his past. When the stranger from the video reaches out, hinting at secrets just out of reach, he leads Drake on a high-octane journey through the slums of Rio to the deserts of Afghanistan.

Following in the wake of his trail of destruction, the team must pursue Drake as he stops at nothing to find the key to his past.

An edge-of-your-seat action thriller from bestselling author Will Jordan, perfect for fans of James Phelan and Vince Flynn.




This is the 8th in the Ryan Drake series by Will Jordan, but can easily be read as a stand-alone.

This starts with a prologue dated 14 Jan 2011, Afghanistan…..Ryan Drake has a captive and two helicopters arrive to pick them up.

The story is full of conspiracies, the CIA, the NSA and a group of ex-CIA operative trying to stay under the radar…..then a car bomb is blamed on Drake and so the action really begins…

This reminded me a little of the Jason Bourne series, in that the CIA and Langley are involved, leaving damaged men in their wake, with great characters in Drake and Anya. The writing is excellent in this incredibly well plotted, brutal, action packed and twisty thriller…… will end in tears ! If you like Ludlum or LeCarre, you’ll love this.
