5.0 out of 5 stars evoactive
This a clever and haunting book that you will want to return to over and over again - some one should make it into a film. The end cries out for a camera.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best book!
Nicholas Shakespeare is a wonderful author, and he has written some exciting stories based in South America. This, however, is slightly disappointing and I couldn't help feeling unsympathetic towards Thomas Wavery and slightly frustrated by him: if you're expecting another "Vision of Elena Silves", another "Dancer Upstairs" or another "Snowleg", then this book isn't for...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best book!, 4 Jan 2012
This review is from: The High Flyer (Paperback)
Nicholas Shakespeare is a wonderful author, and he has written some exciting stories based in South America. This, however, is slightly disappointing and I couldn't help feeling unsympathetic towards Thomas Wavery and slightly frustrated by him: if you're expecting another "Vision of Elena Silves", another "Dancer Upstairs" or another "Snowleg", then this book isn't for you.
The book's strength is in its description of Ceuta (named here as Abyla) which is a Spanish enclave on the tip of North Africa. The politics, too, are clear - the Spanish don't really like this dreary place just across from Gibraltar, but politically it's too important for them to hand it back to Morocco.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not good for new quality..., 8 Mar 2013

This review is from: The High Flyer (Paperback)
Whilst the book arrived in reasonable time, the quality of it as a brand new book was poor with too much damage on it which was disappointing. Sorry guys that I am not able to give you a better rating.
