    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.

  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.

    Very slow, no real climax

    August 2018 This is my first Paul Chavasse story Written in1969 and the last of the 6 book series Feels like it was written for paperback only publication Good airplane book I will try to locate the other stories.

    The 6th book in the Chavasse series, which to me is very similar to the later Sean Dillon series, finds him investigating a smuggling ring They are smuggling people into the UK and once investigating he finds a muchsinister plot afoot Ok read.

  8. Neil says:

    A bit dated but still a fun story and takes you back to the late 60 s.

  9. John says:

    Fast read book which had some thrilling segments Well written but due to the amount of pages there was no character intros.
