O'Donnell's fabulous Blaise franchise is, to quote the late great Kingsley Amis, "endlessly fascinating and features the greatest partnership in crime fiction since Homes & Watson" and this, the second novel in this high quality series is also the best.
The plot features a plan to invade Kuwait on September 11th! How prolific is that?
O'Donnell's clairvoyance skills aside, this is the tight, taunt kick ass thriller that firmly established Blaise as the rightful successor to Bond.
Blaise pulls no punches with her efforts to thwart the plan and readers are in for a treat as our cool, sophisticated heroine drop kicks her way through the most dastardly set of villains since Sax Rohmer gave us Fu Manchu.
Brilliant stuff and so well written
