This was a great find for all those who like a fast paced action adventure story. This story is in a similar genre as The Davinci Code only with more plausible adventure and more believable characters.
Sean is still traumatised from the death of his wife and his sadness continues at the news of the death of his best friend Alex, who was working on a Turkish heritage site for their academic research. Sean goes out to Istanbul to identify the body and his adventures start there when he meets up with an intriguing foreign office representative who knocks on his hotel door one morning. Adventure ensues and they chase, and are chased, around Istanbul and London.
If you like a fast paced adventure story with a mystery attached, then this is for you. Once you follow Sean to the Turkish capital it becomes a real page turner and you won't stop until you reach the end. O'Bryan makes Istanbul come to life and the information at the end about the city itself is a really nice touch. Looking forward to reading the sequel.
