Sanction, William Hunter

While in England on an unsanctioned assignment, Sean Garrett witnesses the shooting of a distinguished Cambridge professor by elite contract killer David Laurent. With his cover blown, Garrett is on the run from an assassin desperate to erase his tracks, and authorities who believe he is responsible for the murder.

Banastre Montjoy, a burned-out head of section at the Secret Intelligence Service, is in a race himself to discover if the scholar’s death is linked to a bombing of the London Underground a year earlier. Montjoy’s nemesis, the power-hungry and scheming Berwyn Rees, seeks to drum his rival out of MI6, while maneuvering to become deputy chief.

With time running out, SOG operators are sent in by the CIA to locate and extract Garrett. As Laurent, MI5, and Scotland Yard close in on their target, Montjoy uncovers a devastating secret, one that someone inside the British government has sought to keep buried since World War II.

Sanction is an incredible novel that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the story, Sean Garrett, who is in England on an ‘unsanctioned assignment,’ and while there, he witnesses the shooting of a Cambridge Professor. As well as witnessing the crime, he also knows who committed it, David Laurent, an elite contract killer and he is after Garrett to tie up loose ends. The reader will follow Garrett as he is on the run from both the assassin and the authorities as they are pinning the murder on Garret and this book lovers is the premise of the incredible Sanction!

The story of Sanction is a stellar one that had me intrigued from the very start. I love any story with an investigation/chase theme, so I knew from the beginning that Sanction would deliver thanks to these themes and wow did it! From the start the reader is immediately thrust into the thick of the story, the reader will feel as if their breath has been knocked out of them by how fast the reader is pushed into the thick of the plot. I personally love this approach with a novel, especially if it is an action/mystery based one; what is the point in waiting for the action to start? None in my opinion so that is why I love how the excellent author William Hunter decided to throw his readers into the story; it made for an exhilarating read, one that I would recommend to all of you lovely readers!

William Hunter is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp his reader’s attention from the first page. Hunter, instead of writing a long build-up thrusts his reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is immersed and captivated by the story quickly. I am impressed by Hunter’s ability and decision to place the reader in the thick of the drama early on because sometimes a long build-up can kill the story before it has even started, so I am impressed with Hunter for his excellent plot device.

William Hunter is not only brilliant at weaving intelligent plot devices throughout his book; plot devices such as twists and turns and shocking moments, to entertain his readers, but he is also a fantastic writer for his descriptive literature. The descriptive powers of Hunter will immerse the reader in the novel, as they will be able to imagine the unfolding investigation entirely.

Overall Sanction is a chilling, thought-provoking and captivating story that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights, I, of course, have to award the thrilling book five stars!
