  4. Tim Corke says:

    easy peasy read but definitely a good story and kept the interest throughout a bitreal than Bond I suppose but lots of convenience to allow the story to pull together.

  5. Stefan Ellis says:

    An entertaining enough action rush Thin on characters and very short, but if you are looking for a book you can finish in a couple of hours and not think too much, there are worse books out there.
