In My Own Words:
I'm an Irishman living in England who enjoys the pleasure that books give - both reading them and writing them. The advent of the Kindle has been wonderful as it is so easy to try new authors and not overload my book shelves in the process.

I love to travel, cook and share a bottle of good wine. Apart from these essentials of life I also read a lot and play chess. Then there are my other interests - ancient history, geology, philosophy and mythology.

I have read most of the books in this series and have enjoyed them all. Even thought I tend to prefer my plots and characters to be a bit more developed I can never turn down an opportunity to read another Dane Maddock book.

There is constant movement, action and adventure in exotic locations across the world.

What I think draws me to the books though are the main characters whose enjoyable friendship and humour as a central feature is in contrast to most other books in the genre.

This was a wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable book to read.

There were all the elements I would usually look for in a thriller - fast paced plot, an element of violence, all tossed in a rich mix of adventure.

What made this really stand out for me though was the level of detail. The characters were developed in a way that provided more depth than many books in this genre and there had clearly been a lot of research conducted into Roma culture and history. Then there was the level of detail of the plot which wove together Nazi loot, cutting edge scientific research, history/mythology and occult or esoteric power.

I read it in the course of two days - a… Read more
