will seeThis really is a gripping and claustrophobic thriller that leaves you guessing as to will happen next and what a way to introduce a new exciting character in Sam Wylde One thing is for sure she is icking ass and taking names proving that women can be physical as well as cerebral and book readers have a new heroine and she is so welcome 4 12 startsMy ViewThis is an action packed adrenaline fuelled thriller It took me a little time to absorb the acronyms and the back story the story of PPO s Personal Protection Officers I now this needed to be done but I felt this bogged down the narrativefor a short while then when we were all up to speed I could not. An alternate cover for this ISBN can be found hereYOU CAN RUNSam Wylde is a Close Protection Officer to the rich and powerful In a world dominated by men being a woman has been an advantage And she is the best in the business at what she doesYOU CA. What I liked about this story is that it is a woman named Sam Wylde the main character and not a man in a suit doing this job Sam s job as a female Close Protection Officer to protect her clients from idnap extortion and assassination On a long hall flight a disturbance takes place It is great news for RJ Bailey as an early interest RJ Bailey has created a serial #hero to rival Jack Reacher Safe from Harm is based on real experiences researched by the author and is #to rival Jack Reacher Safe from Harm is based on real life experiences researched by the author and is close to the truth Oh how I loved this book This will most definitely be on my Outstanding Books of The Year listA fast paced thrill a minute edge of the seat glimpse into the world of a female Close Protection OfficerI had to read this in short bursts because reading it sent me into fright or flight mode with adrenaline levels so high I thought a heart attack might be imminentNot for the faint hearted or those with an aversion to reading about women in dangerous situations who now how to fight their way out of trouble and are than capable of getting the upper hand in violent confrontationsThe protagonist Samantha Sam Rae Wylde is a former army medic with service in Afghanistan There are occasional flashbacks to that time which add to Samantha s back story and we find out about her life and how she became a PPO although I suspect there is much to learn about this character and we will in subseuent series can t waitWith a personal tragedy behind her and a young teenage daughter to care for Samantha becomes employed by a rich Asian family who might have links to some dangerous groups With plots counter plots and characters who aren t all they seem the story moves very swiftly from one dilemma to another with Sam right at the centre of it allI loved Sam s humour and wry observational style throughout and bits of the witty remarks and come backs made me laugh out loud at times I hated the author though for leaving some unfinished business at the end of this book but it makes me look forward to the next in the series so that I can be scared out of my wits again Loved it really good character development and tense throughout A clear amount of research gone into it too Highly recommend for anyone who loves a good thriller WellI read it to the end so that says something I suppose Safe From Harm by RJ Bailey is full of action and suspense but there were times when I thought Oh what now There seemed to be so many interweaving storylines some unresolved by the end of the novel However that does leave it open for a seuel which is promised for 2018Some Goodreads reviewers have likened the female protagonist to Lee Child s creation Jack Reacher Certainly if you enjoy lots of action and a heroheroine who is death defying you will love Sam Wylde and her escapadesUnfortunately Jack Reacher doesn t draw me back after dipping my toe into that ocean of thrills We ll have to see with Sam Wyld.
