Luke is a bit daft in trying to buy a fake driving licence but he suddenly realises he is involved in something a lot more serious than a few forged documents! Maybe if his parents weren't so totally absorbed in their high powered jobs and had spent just a little more time with him, everything would have been different. Gemma, on the other hand spends rather too much time in her father Liam's company. Liam has a nicer side, but all to often Gemma sees the anger - and he is planning something big to settle old scores with the British government. Even though Gemma likes Luke, she in unable to tell him the truth, and even though he knows she is lying to him, Luke likes Gemma - quite a lot!
It would be wrong to give away too much of the story, but there are plenty of twists in the plot and almost every form of transport known to mankind - fast cars, slower cars, vans, a flat bed truck, a speed boat and a helicopter or two.
I like the fact that we know why Liam has decided on this drastic -and alarming! - course of action. This is no two dimensional baddie. He is a complex, if misguided, character.
This a really well crafted thriller, with characters you can understand and some of them you can even like!
