Unhappy Families (The Romney and Marsh Files Book 6)
Unhappy Families (The Romney and Marsh Files Book 6)
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I struggled to find a title for the review. I have thoroughly enjoyed each of the book in this series, and again this did not disappoint, far from it, it delivers. It delivers great characters, great plot, and some shocks. A wonderful book, and I still maintain this would transfer incredibly well to the small screen.

It was a Roman disaster, very well written and researched. Very plausible characters, and explained how the centurianate was so crucial

4.0 out of 5 stars Poweful, 30 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only other book I had read about Stalingrad was Anthony Beevors book. This book was astonishing, a true indictment of the inhumanity of war, and the lengths that men can go to to survive. A pretty good translation, with a few jarring exceptions. Could have done with some maps, but a very powerful read

I have been rather disappointed with the collaborations with IV but was very happy with this new series. Though it does not share the martial comradeship, by its nature in the espionage arena it does have the get things done attitude that to me seems very authentic. Very much looking forward to the next in this series

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Bond book for a while, 23 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Please do not be put off by the number of one star reviews, these are solely related to a technical issue and are not valid reviews of this book. It stands alone, though reading the excellent prequel would be a good idea. A good storyline, an excellent understanding of modern weaponry and tactics, a very plausible insight into one of the most secretive and ruthless regimes, all combine to deliver Mr Bond's best book for a while


No Quarter: A Matty Graves Novel (The Matty Graves Novels)
No Quarter: A Matty Graves Novel (The Matty Graves Novels)
Price: £9.14

4.0 out of 5 stars Good nautical yarn, 22 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this. A good storyline, decent characters, and a style that reflected the location and date setting, without going over the top. When I enjoy the first book of a series, especially when it is for free, I normally go on to buy the rest of the series, but at £8.39, sorry Broos, no sale.

3.0 out of 5 stars Action thriller, 29 Jan. 2016

Decent plot, but utterly ruined for me by the appalling misuse of apostrophes. Really does need a good edit. But if poor grammar doesn't worry you, enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning alternative history, 21 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a free offering on Amazon, and for that I commend the author. I have gone on to buy all of the next books, and can hardly wait for the next one. It is a massive achievement, dealing with political matters, high command, unit command, down to small units and individuals in combat. A different decision by Stalin in 1945, and this could have been reality. Stupendous.

I have really enjoyed this series. Well written, well edited, all of the characters that everyone knows, but put into an historical context.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still not decided, 13 Dec. 2015

This review is from: Breakthrough (Kindle Edition)
The first time I read this book, I loved it but hated the ending, which, and it is difficult to do without a spoiler, let's say disappointed. But there is a sequel. I know it has been compared to Grisham, Childs, well. IMHO not really. A thundering good adventure, worth following on to the next. If only to discover what dolphins really think about us. And gorillas!
