1.0 out of 5 stars The Author spends lots of time in this particular book dealing with boring politics, and with the dodgy politicians manourvering, 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always rushed out to buy new books by this author, but the Tom Buckingham series is a big step backwards. The Author spends lots of time in this particular book dealing with boring politics, and with the dodgy politicians manourvering to gain power. I had enough of that with the General election! He also takes lots of digs at current Government policies, dealing with Extreme muslim terrorists who return to the UK after taking part in atrocities abroad. The story does not provide the usual pace and action associated with McNab stories. Lots of the story dosnt hang together and is very disjointed and not realistic, you end up asking yourself, 'why would the character bother doing that? there was no need?' This isnt a thriller or an action story more of a 'Yes minister' about politics...........lets hope he returns to writing what he is best at. The end is not logical and unrealistic. Last point, too much time concentrating again on the Buckingham's 'Rich parents', basically I dont need to know in detail about his family, its not exciting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not afraid to kill off persons who are supposed to be on the good guys side, 26 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very well written, very fast pace, lots of action. Not afraid to kill off persons who are supposed to be on the good guys side, if that is what Victor is. I am very fussy with choosing books and will often abandon books if I get bored half way through. Just finished this one and already researched which Tom Wood book to buy next.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the usual McNab story, bit disappointed, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I nearly gave up! I have read all of McNabs books and have always found them to be very well written, fast paced and full of action from the start. This book was a huge disappointment. I don't know if the author is currently going through his mid life crisis ( I hope not to wind him up, not a good guy to have on your case) but for the first third of this book he is trying to copy a Mills & Boons love story. Instead of the usual violence and action, he seems to concentrate on Tom's love life. If I wanted all luvvy duvvy mushy stuff, I would have chosen a book from the romance section. As for the lengthy introduction to Tom's posh parents who have a problem downing loads of gin, I felt sorry for them, but was so bored with the dragged out details, that I skim read that particular section.
Even when the real action gets started, when the terrorists are in the tunnel, our hero Tom, single handed, takes on about 40 veteran soldiers trying to rescue his girl. I usually love McNabs books because they are realistic, with the good guys getting injured and killed, and sometimes even failing in their mission. Tom appears to be invincible when chasing after his true love. I hope Tom and his Gal live happily ever after, but lets get back to what McNab is good at please, no more Romance. McNab is far, far, better than this when he sticks to what he is best at.
I have only ticked OK because the last two thirds pick up a bit with more action, last out until then if you can.

1.0 out of 5 stars double concertina black leather wallet, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tried to reorder the same wallet I had ordered 12 months previously which was made from high quality materials. However for some unknown reason I was sent this piece of junk made in China. Supposed to be a 'double' concertina wallet but it wasn't. Returned the same day to Amazon. To be fair to Amazon the returns facility was first class and my money was returned to my account very quickly. I have now ordered and received a Buxton double concertina wallet, far better quality and I am happy with it.
