My Thoughts

As a rule I try to read no more than 10% of a book each day, the main reason for this is real life and the need to live it and do all the things I have responsibilities for, Feeding and Clothing Children being just two of them.

Sometimes however a book comes along and changes all of that. Embracing all the Book reviewing cliches this book was a rip roaring, unputdownable roller coaster of a book. It has everything a thriller should have, although I did have some trouble remembering who was who at times but I put that down to my age.

The action takes place between Russia, Wales and London and are narrated by various characters, the plot has many layers that are slowly peeled back until we reach the reveal. The Characters are superbly written, Dan Forrester and Lucy Davies are great characters and I loved them both, they both have great back stories and personal lives.

Really enjoyed and highly recommended.
