The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Accoun&hellip by Morgan Jones
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 26 Dec 2013
Knowing the author i felt i should at least attempt to read this book. What i got within just the first few pages was an honest account of life within hostile environments. For security he changed all names but still kept an accurate account of his time within Libya. Much has been said recently regarding this account but knowing this person his integrity and honesty is never in question he has fallen ill to protecting others reputations ahead of his own, so have no doubt that everything written is correct and truthful. A very good read

1.0 out of 5 stars Why Ray why, 22 Jan 2013
As a fan of Ray Winstone i was looking forward to this, but the film was rubbish. You have this police unit who think they are the SAS (without the skills or drills).
The old one handed shooting (may aswell done it john woo style).
They did not need the whole love story bit and the 70s style policing in 21st century uk made the film even worse.
They missed a trick with this one, after the success of life on mars why not just do the film in late 70s. Would been whole lot better instead you have a film which cannot decide if its 70s or mod con 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 22 Aug 2012
I picked this book up n an old book shop and what a read. I had heard of Michael Mason before , a former fur trapper,boxer and land owner in Oxford, he was one of Ian Flemings inspirations for 007 and this book does not disappoint. Telling of his life just before the war and into the war years. He does not in any way try to give it the big 'I AM' as you see in most miliatry biographies today. A very good read
