I, War is crime thriller which initially follows the actions of an assassin as he fulfils a contract to remove the heads of an established crime organisation in the UK. He is working for the head of a Russian crime movement who holds a grudge against the now retired head of the UK organisation. The first part of the story is about the assassinations and the involvement of James Hawk and his friends to protect the family. The story moves across the UK and Europe. At the same time a police task force is involved, working on information of a deep cover agent in the Ukraine, to prevent a massive influx of drugs and arms. The story moves to the Ukraine as it follows the efforts of the agent to escape and the moves by the main character to eliminate the threat posed by the head of the organisation. The action is fast paced and developed with skillfully interwoven plot and sub plots.
