Matt is Nobody's Agent (review)


Nobody’s Agent   

Stuart Field (@StuartField14)

 Reviewed by Matt Adcock (@cleric20)
“Nash felt the eyes of the others on him, burning with suspicion. ‘I’m here to investigate the bodies found in the mine, so why would I kill the person who was assisting me?’ ”   

Fancy taking a trip to the small town of Finchley, it’s a lovely place in upstate New York, there are some great sights to see, people to meet – oh don’t mind the three bodies in that old mine... Leave those to Sheriff Doug Harrison – he’ll probably get the FBI for help – hmmmmm that’ll be fine. 

But if you want to get real results, you’ll want to be getting in touch with Ronin Nash – a methodical and brilliant ex-FBI special agent who quit after a botched kidnapping left innocents dead. Now he spends his time restoring an old family lake house but maybe his old boss could get him back to crack this Finchley case. 

This review is part of the ninja Zooloo Book Tour for Nobody's Agent

Given the fact that Nobody’s Agent is a Ronin Nash adventure – it’s the least surprising plot development ever that he agrees reluctantly to take the job and travel to Finchley. If only it was only that simple – there are secrets, lies, and death awaiting in this small town, can Nash profile the killer(s) and track them down? Only one way to find out and that is to buy this slick and engaging crime thriller, it’s the first book in Stuart Field's Ronin Nash series and if the rest are as page-turning and exciting as this, crime fans are in for a treat! 

The plot crackles with double-crosses, clues and danger. If you’re looking for a mystery thriller, Nobody’s Agent will blow you away. Field is obviously a serious fan of the genre – this book kicks like the gritty True Detective (which is probably my favourite crime show) and by the end, you’ll be in awe of Nash’s crime-busting skills.

I got to ask Stuart some searching questions – have read of these (and then grab your copy of Nobody’s Agent!) 

Matt: If scientists ever managed to create a giant mecha version of you – who or what would be your nemesis?   

Stuart: Probably Godzilla: you just know it would have to be. 

Matt: What is the most thrilling fictional scene you’ve ever read or watched in a book/film of any genre?

Stuart: That’s a hard one, really; there have been so many. Possibly the cable car fight scene from ‘Where Eagles Dare.’ Movie. 

Matt: If you were hired to throw a parade of any scale or theme through the centre of London what type of parade would it be?

Stuart: Madre Gras possibly, that would be fun to see.   

Matt: Who inspires you most (can be living or dead)?   

Stuart: So many people, it is hard to choose. It is easy to say ‘Oh, Lee Child’ or someone, but in truth, people, and the things they do are an inspiration. But I had to choose, I would say new writers, people on that journey for the first time. 

Matt: There’s a masked assailant with a gun to your head, who is most likely to be under the mask?  

Stuart: Hopefully, someone who doesn’t know about guns. I’d like to think I haven’t pissed anyone off enough for it to come to that. 

Matt: What is the meaning of life?   

Stuart: Life is there to be lived, so live it.   

Matt: What was the best gift you’ve ever been given?   

Stuart: My daughter.   

Matt: If you could have a sidekick robot – what would it be able to do for you?

Stuart: Here is to the zombie apocalypse.     

Matt: What would you like written on your tombstone? 

Stuart: Make a good brew. 

Matt: Any final words you like to add...   

Stuart: Thanks for taking the time to ask me these questions.      

Out of a potential 5 - you have to go with a Darkmatters:


(5 - Nobody's Agent should be everyone's crime thriller of choice!)
