5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely enjoyable, 21 Dec. 2014

Another great Ben Hope romp. Ridiculously far-fetched which is why we love them! Already downloaded the next one! Keep them coming please.

2.0 out of 5 stars Total and utter nonsense, 6 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Believe me I tried. Tried to believe the amount of scrapes and near misses two people could encounter, but once the action moved to Saudi it really lost the plot. Secret mountain location protects for thousands of years given up to the first thug in town, also how did the journo spot the bull horn location when all the egg head archaeologists had failed? No more, please

Great plot twists and turns. Another great Barclay read and probably his best yet. Now let's find his next one!


A Game of Sorrows (Alexander Seaton series Book 2)
A Game of Sorrows (Alexander Seaton series Book 2)
Price: £4.18

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth bearing with, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slow burning period thriller with plenty of under plotting going on between families and acquaintances. Seaton's character is developed well from the first book and so are those around him. The danger and atmosphere of 17c Ulster comes across through the story and is an interesting backdrop.

A good read, gripping enough. Although highly implausible throughout I enjoyed it! Would maybe try one more of this author's work to get a balanced view.

Good plot twisted as always from Barclay. Stretching the realm of fantasy that so many in the close circle would have inter linked skeletons in the cupboards but a damn good read that is hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding thriller, 30 Jan. 2014

A worthy final book in the Khalifa & Ben-Too series that sadly ends now that Paul Sussman is no longer with us. The characterisation and plot lines in this book are woven so skilfully that you believe you are actually in the story. A fitting tribute to a very talented writer who's potential was unlimited. All there is left now is to re-read the series starting with the lost army of campuses, a prospect I am looking forward to with great relish. This is writing of the highest quality, my favourite author from a very long list.

Nothing spectacular but overall an enjoyable read. The story had a well developed plot with a good retro vs present tense switch. Some characters were simply unconvincing, the taxi driver Humph with his Capri??? Gary the young reporter and others. A first intro to Jim Kelly.

This review is from: The Cold Calling (Kindle Edition)
Enjoyed most of this however too many bizarre characters with unusual plot lines connecting them. Guess that makes it fiction!

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter nonsense, 21 July 2011
This review is from: The Prophecy (Paperback)
After reading mixed reviews prior to ordering I kept an open mind, this is a genre I normally find gripping. Naturally with such books one has to suspend reality to get into the plot and resulting twists. However, what a disappointment this was, turgid and ridiculous plot (even with total belief suspension applied), boring and irritating characters and written in a style that made me want to leave it alone after 200 pages. I always finish books though, however enjoyable and I persisted to the bitter and predictably boring end.
Are we to believe that even in a fictional world, a single individual working for British Intelligence service would be jetting around Muslim mosque sites after 'terrorist' attacks, as opposed to the US agencies taking over, (sorry real world kicking in there) or the ludicrous associates of Tynnan's fellow writer friend 'Mike'. I'm sure the average novelist/writer mixes with the underworld. So many outcomes at key points were underwhelming, what on earth did Nostradamus and the French modern day wannabee have to do with anything?
This book and it's plot were really not that complex as commented by other readers, in my view the author was both confused and confusing in his laboured and tedious explanations of sequences of mosque attacks, consequent reactions and the supposed tensions between the fictional terrorist 'leaders'. What a dull dirge it all was.
I am looking forward now to my next input of James Forrester, James Twining (at least the plots are interesting), Glenn Cooper, Scott Mariani, CJ Sansom and others.
