A complete change of direction by Steve Horsfall but, and no discredit to his first two books, in my humble opinion this is by far his best effort. As usual he develops the major and minor characters with skill and subtlety, the difference this time is the plot which sucks you straight into a tangled web of intrigue (and doesn't let go).
Sounds corny maybe but this defintely has the 'can't put it down' quality a good thriller should.
Buy it, borrow it, whatever but above all read it.
More of the same please.
