Format: Mass Market Paperback
I usually buy the vast majority of my book purchases from Amazon.ca. This time I spotted Devil's Keep in a rack at the Kitsilano London Drugs and bought it on a whim. It's a great fast-paced thriller that has four former spies/commandos taking on a missing persons case in the Philippines, and battling a nasty criminal operation by the Russian mob. If you like novels written by Lee Child, Greg Rucka, David Morrell, Stephen Hunter, and/or Robert Ludlum, you'll really enjoy this book. I recommend it as a light but well written action-adventure tale. I'm looking forward to more Bravo Cell One Nine stories from Phillip Finch.

Move over Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne, meet Ray Favor April 22 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
For those who appreciate excellent writing and storytelling, put this new thriller on your Must Read List for 2010.

Phillip Finch delivers the goods on all levels in this action-thriller. The story moves at a solid pace and does not slow down. Excellent characters and the setting feel so real. The author obviously has his hand on the pulse on the Philippines.

Special Ops master Ray Favor here earns his seat at the same table with the likes of characters Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne. I think the best is yet to come with this new series and look forward to the next installment. Make some room on your bookshelf for Mr. Finch friends. The goods are delivered strong here, and more.

Brilliantly Realised Characters April 30 2010
By G. Norby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Suspense lovers! Check out "Devil's Keep" by Phillip Finch. It has international settings, mystery, gun play and all the rest. Where it excels is in the characters. In spite of the protagonists coming from a Black Ops background, they have moral questions that are examined deeply and realistically. The "killer with a conscience" may have been seen in other works, but Finch has a way of bringing these people to life, to show, not just tell, how they came to be,... well, them. You feel you know these people; For the debut of a group of protagonists, they are readily accessible, and definitively human.

The pacing of the book is relentless. Even before you know for certain what is happening to the victims in the plot, you have a sense of foreboding, an unease that drives you forward, page after page. When the truth is confirmed, you understand the tangible evil of the bad guys, how depraved they really are. You wrestle with the moral and ethical struggles the heroes endure, and sweat out the tense times with them. When time comes to "settle the bill", "Devil's Keep" does so definitively, and leaves a very generous tip.

First in a promised series featuring the core group, it has me eager to read more concerning these remarkable people.

Devil's Keep.. .Great Read July 14 2010
By G. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a great read... what was intesting to me, was the setting was in the Phillipenes.. not your usual international thriller setting. It is obvious Mr Finch lived there as his descriptions were clear. The Book was hard to put down and i read it over lunch and into the evening.. much to my wifes irritation.

The Evil that men do. Oct. 21 2010
By Robert C. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Evil that men do.
Wonderful debut novel of a new action packed series. As many of my other action heroes are getting long in the tooth, Mr. Finch's team of former elite black operatives arrives just in time. Devil's Keep is a well reasoned thought-out tale that brings back together an elite group of clandestine black ops operatives in search of missing Filipino teenage youths. Led by chief protagonist Ray Favor, the team uses all its skill and prior training to search and "hunt" down the missing teenagers. What they find is a monstrous evil on a secret island off the southern coast of the Philippines. Mr. Finch does an excellent job of keeping the reader involved without going overboard as so many action writers tend to do today. Plenty of believable action that keeps the story moving at a rapid clip.
No gratuitous sex, language, or violence. Just good writing.
Character development was mediocre at best. Mr. Finch's cast of characters were a target rich environment of possibilities that he never developed to my satisfaction. For this to be a successful series he is going to have to do more in the way of fleshing out the 4 primary characters-especially the main protagonist Ray Favor. I liked the story but there just wasn't enough about just who these elite black ops folks were.
All in all a good series beginning novel. Solid recommend as a paperback. Very good for that long, miserable airline flight. I like Mr. Finch's writing style, not too aggressive or over the top but just about right. Too many action writers today write in the old Saturday matinee style of cliff-hanging action that the protagonist somehow survives. I am looking forward to the next Ray Favor novel.
