This was one of the first Creasy books I read, many years ago. I was delighted to find it reissued on Kindle. However, I was surprised to find that the Kindle edition was censored: a sex scene involving the protagonist and female lead has been heavily edited in the Kindle version: I compared my old paperback copy side by side to be sure, and there isn't any doubt. It isn't that it is such an essential scene, but it is a bit worrying that a Kindle edition could be censored without this fact being made transparent in the item description. It makes me wonder whether other books I have bought on Kindle have been similarly cut. The scene was not particularly graphic either, which begs the question of why it was done.

Fairly predictable story-line but nevertheless worth reading for relaxation. The plot unfolds in a logical sequence and you do not need to be a genius to understand where the characters will interact and the resulting outcomes. Enjoyed the group the hero (Mirek) encounters in Poland and this was probably the most tense segment of the story. Nothing earth shattering but just about worth your time - especially for a winter night or beach read.

Since finding A.J.Quinnells novels at the begining of June I have read all of his books published for Kindle.
They are so captivating all my free time has been taken by these wonderful stories.
I have become a bit of a bore with friends extolling this very fine author. Certainly I continue to recommend these novels.

Earth shattering, it may not be, but this is still a very good, very well written thriller. The characters are interesting and believable, the narrative and dialogue perposeful and effortlessly handled by Quinnell; the book is so easy to read, you'll have finished it in a matter of hours.

I recommend "In The Name Of The Father" very highly. This is one of the more readily available A J. Quinnell titles, so, if you fancy a good read, pick up a copy. You won't be disappointed.

On the one hand this is a simple thriller set in the late '80s. On the other it is a masterfully crafted tale with an eye to technical, technological and historical detail akin to the best of Frederick Forsythe's thrillers. Moving on from that it is a one-off romance which whilst probably inevitable would also seem inevitably doomed. The hero isn't, at first, anyone that you might have any empathy with but as the story develops........ It is a magnificent read and one of the few novels that I will happily re-read and find new nuances in.

I just ordered this on my Kindle as it sounded good. Well I was not disappointed. It involves a dissolutioned assassin, the Vatican and a mutual desire to kill a man who wishes to kill the Pope. It takes you through all that is required to get to the heavily guarded quarry. I never go into the details of plots or plans in a book as it could spoil it for the reader. All I will say is read it if you like this type of genre--romantic or therapeutic, it isn't, but I really enjoyed it.

Whatever the subject this author takes you along for an amazing ride. I have enjoyed all his books so far several times and would recommend this.

I read this book about 15 years ago. Having just bought it for my kindel I cant put it down. A really excellent thriller from the cold war era.

This is the first A.J. Quinnell book I've read that doesn't feature Creasey but it's another cracker and yet again I had a job to put it down.
