About the Book
Robert Finlay seems to have finally left his SAS past behind him and is settled into his new career as a detective. But when the girlfriend of his former SAS colleague and close friend Kevin Jones is murdered, it’s clear that Finlay’s troubles are far from over. Jones is arrested for the killing, but soon escapes from jail, and Finlay is held responsible for the breakout. Suspended from duty and sure he’s being framed too, our hero teams up with MI5 agent Toni Fellowes to find out who’s behind the conspiracy. Their quest soon reveals a plot that goes to the very heart of the UK’s security services. End Game, the final part in the critically acclaimed Robert Finlay trilogy, sees our hero in an intricately plotted and terrifyingly fast-paced race to uncover the truth and escape those who’d sooner have him dead than be exposed.

I have read all of the books in this series and I can honestly say that they have got better and better. I would recommend that they are read in order, there are a couple of storylines that run through all of the books.
Robert Finlay, ex military, now police officer has plenty of demons with what he experienced in various war zones and he is the right person to be brought in to help in a hostage situation. Unfortunately it also brings him into contact with Superintendent Mellor who bears him a grudge for events that happened previously. When tragedy affects his close friend Kevin shortly after, events go from bad to worse for the pair of them.
I will be honest. I rarely read military style fiction. Mainly because I don’t understand much of the politics, religion and geographical borders. But, Matt Johnson has made this series so readable and understandable anybody could read and enjoy them.
There are plenty of characters. As always, some are good, some evil and there are a few who walk a fine line. I had doubts about some of them, but they were unfounded.
I believe this is the last in the series which saddens me, certainly there are a lot of threads that have been resolved. I will be interested in what we will see next from the author.
