James Swallow’s spy thriller Nomad tells the story of an MI6 analyst Marc Dane. The book begins with Dane and his team in Spain tracking a terrorist cell that is believed to be behind an attack in Barcelona. Suddenly and without any warning at all, the team is ambushed and everybody but him is killed. Alone and confused, Dane cradles his dying teammate Samantha Green who tells him the entire team has been betrayed by somebody high in the ranks of MI6. Dane is shocked by the news. Loyal to his country and his teammates, he begins an arduous process of tracking down the mole in MI6. However, the British intelligence agency learns of the ambush and, seeing how Dane is the only survivor in the attack on his team, pins the blame entirely on him and makes Dane the fall guy. Now Dane must race against time as another far deadlier terrorist attack is coming. He must use his wits in order to get to the bottom of his team’s betrayal and ultimate downfall. Over the course of the book, Dane is thrust in the heart of the action and is helped by an uneasy alliance with a female sniper who was originally tasked with killing Marc Dane. Furthermore, they discover a conspiracy among the highest levels of the British government that will have big repercussions on the world stage. Nomad is a spy thriller in the veins of those of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and Mark Greaney. The plot is very fluid, and there is action in almost every chapter. The characters are varied and multidimensional. Swallow also develops the bad guys quite nicely as the reader can see inside their minds and see their motivations as well as what made them who they are. In addition, Swallows’ prose is free of verbose description which makes the reader concentrate better on the plot.
