I made the mistake of picking up 'The Enemy Within' one Sunday morning recently just to see what it was like. I found it such a gripping read, that I sat down and read the whole book from cover to cover in one sitting! This is the first of Paul Adam's books that I have read, and if they are all of this high quality, then I can't wait to sample the others!
It is clear that Paul Adam researches his subject thoroughly. His writing is tight, crisp and punchy, and any reader will find himself or herself being completely consumed by it and dragged along at quite a pace. He does not waste words or use words where they are not needed.
None of his characters is a superman. They are all human and have their weaknesses, just like the rest of us.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Format: Paperback
If you believe the State has an all-seeing spy system set up in the UK, then this is the thriller for you. Although I am sure this will arrive, at present it remains a fictional idea which makes this book a little hard to understand. Hard, because by using such a system, an innocent teacher is suddenly on the run, wanted by the State for crimes he didn't commit but can't prove, finding himself at the mercy of his pursuers who know almost before he does where he's going.

Initially it seems the teacher has stumbled on a death supposedly covered up by the authorities during the miners' strike and there is still much bitterness coursing through the book about that period when the UK was brought to a standstill by unelected communists. However, this death is not the issue and the Tom Whitehead, the teacher, needs all the help he can get to clear his name and come out smiling. Enter Moran, an ex-policeman who can call in old favours to try to help his new client. The action moves around the North with a quick journey to London as the plot unfolds.

I didn't have much time for these characters. Even another death close to home doesn't really seem to bother them but then, we northerners are made of stern stuff, I'm told. Anyway, it certainly makes for an interesting read. This is the first book by this author I've read. If I choose another one, I'll be a little more careful about the subject matter before buying it.

Fascinating book, it is so believable it's frightening. The plot is very good, runs at a racy pace, and is well written.
I have bought this book twice, as I leant out the first, and it wasnt returned.
This book makes a real talking point 95/100

Having read other Paul Adam books, I expected an intellingent page-turning rollercoaster of a thriller - I wasn't disappointed. Knowing that the research behind Adam's books is spot on- so the level of surveillance technology used by the powers that be in 'Enemy Within' must be in existence- makes this 'big-brother' scenario all the more chilling. The main character is something of an everyman, with a naivity about every-day technology most of us probably share. An innocent forced to turn fugitive, his life is turned upside-down as he tries to get to the bottom of what's happended to him whilst desparately staying one step ahead of the violent villains of the story. You turn the pages with your heart in your mouth, starkly aware of how vulnerable we all are in this modern age of technology - I didn't use my mobile for weeks after reading it!! More please...
