Renegade by Rob Sinclair

Hi everyone,

It feels like it has been aaaaaaaages since I put up a review on here. It has definitely been a few months for sure. Today, on publication day, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Renegade by Rob Sinclair.

Happy Publication day, Rob!


He’s back and better than ever.

James Ryker, a veteran intelligence agent now freelancer, working for the secretive Joint Intelligence agency on an op-by-op basis, finds himself embroiled in a complicated mission that will test him to his limit.

When a simple surveillance mission goes awry and the key target is kidnapped in broad daylight in a busy London square, Ryker knows he has his work cut out.

Ryker is tasked with figuring out what went wrong. But when his good friend Sam Moreno disappears without a trace, the mission becomes more personal than he could have imagined.

Torn between toeing the government line, and finding the answers he needs, Ryker realises there’s only one way to find those responsible and to punish them… His way.

Rob specialised in forensic fraud investigations at a global accounting firm for thirteen years. He began writing in 2009 following a promise to his wife, an avid reader, that he could pen an ‘unputdownable’ thriller. Since then, Rob has sold over a million copies of his critically acclaimed and bestselling thrillers in the Enemy, James Ryker and Sleeper series. His work has received widespread critical acclaim, with many reviewers and readers likening Rob’s work to authors at the very top of the genre, including Lee Child and Vince Flynn. 

Originally from the North East of England, Rob has lived and worked in a number of fast paced cities, including New York, and is now settled in the West Midlands with his wife and young sons.


I have been a fan of Rob Sinclair’s thrillers for a few years now so I was delighted to be able to read Renegade, the new James Ryker novel. It has been a while since I read a good spy thriller, and Renegade sounded like it would be exactly what I was after.

Reader, it was everything I wanted and more

James Ryker is an excellent character. You can’t help but be drawn to him, and essentially rationalize his often misguided logic with operational decisions and tactics. If anyone else did it, you’d be saying nooooooooo, but with Ryker I found myself egging him on in my head to do the thing, or go to the place he really shouldn’t.

Renegade begins with a surveillance mission that goes belly up, and from there it barrels at a breakneck pace through more twists and turns than a corkscrew. I could have ended up with whiplash more than once at some points in the book as I tried to keep up with the various plot points.

Rob Sinclair has always been a talented writer. His ability to write an excellent main character has been obvious from the beginning, and its safe to say Ryker is up there with the other espionage heroes we’ve read over the years. Flawed, impulsive, but achingly human, he is definitely one of my favourite characters.

Renegade is an excellent addition to the James Ryker series. Pulse-pounding, addictive and utterly engaging, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

Highly recommended!
