Fast-paced, gripping, can't-put-it-down read!
on 11 November 2005
This was a fantastic book, I read it in one sitting through the night. For one, Sara Sheridan takes you from static, bleak Scotland, to the neon infused, bustling, around the clock buzz of Hong Kong, via the bright lights of London. After reading The Pleasure Express, I literally felt like I had spent months travelling around these locations, such is Sheridans knack for capturing the atmosphere and details of these places.
The story is also an unputdownable page turner. International organised crime, unimaginable wealth, youth and danger are all mixed up in this lethal cocktail of a book.
The narrator, Kate, is also an addictive character, with her complete and utter lack of guilt in any aspect of her life. Tough and unimaginably daring, you get caught up in her, her friends and their lives of luxury and danger. I recommend anyone who likes reading to read this and take a journey with Kate to the underworld of society.
