OMG! TOTALLY BELIEVABLE-COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN!, 5 Sept. 2010
Do you know when you get a book and you just can't put it down, and you have one of those brilliant Saturday afternoons curled up with a bottle of wine on the couch and a FAB READ, well welcome to the world of David Hurst. One of the best page turners I have read in a long time. I am sick of stuffy totally NOT BELIEVABLE detectives, and stories that have no basis in reality at all. David Hurst is a real man's man,(and Deb is mine kind of woman - just as tough as him!)and as for his boss!! This could really happen - that is what is frightning. You can tell that the author writes from a knowledge base - his author page is FAB, worked for the special branch and lectures in terrorist studies at university, (his life story would make a great book!) that's why it is so authentic. If you love the Wire, Dirty Harry and totally not "politically correct" detectives then you will love this. A real working class hero. It shows you what real police officers have to deal with.It ain't prety at times, but it is REALLY entertaining. FORGET THE HORROR STORIES - THIS SCARES THE LIFE OUT OF YOU! Would make a great film, can't wait for the next installment! BRILL!!
