Adam Wolf has only just retired from a ‘killer’ career when he finds himself being targeted by a shadowy crime family. Testifying against the killer of a top crime reporter, Wolf is forced to defend himself against a series of attacks. Finally, the black ops vet sets out to stop his tormentors once and for all.
Wolf is a memorable and original leading man, and at 60 he’s a little older than your average thriller protagonist. His black ops training, however, means that Wolf is more than a match for the crime family who are on his tail, and Steve Trotter does a great job of bringing out Wolf’s strengths (and occasional weaknesses) and showing him to be a complex and somewhat mysterious character.
Resurrected (An Adam Wolf Thriller) contains plenty of fast-paced action, liberally dosed with some dark humour and some moments of genuine invention. At its heart is the character of Wolf himself, who is one of the better thriller protagonists I’ve read in a long time. Wolf is clearly a character with potential, so hopefully he can be resurrected for further novels in the future.
