5.0 out of 5 stars A great read
This author obviously knows a lot about the secretive world of military intelligence. I was hooked from the first few pages and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The plot is original with plenty of twists and turns and an excellent finale. I can recommend this book to anyone interested in the machinations of SIS.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow burning
Good plot but for me it was lacking in action until right at the end. Good price. Well detailed and researched.

Fantastic, clichéd I know but I just couldn't put down the book. Waking up at 4 am and seizing the opportunity to get in another chapter or two must be a measure of it's worth.

If you've read the preview of this book and are still not sure just buy it, you wont be disappointed. One warning though, the book starts slowly but stick with it because everything becomes clear in the end. John MacRae appears to know things about the secret services that are not only fascinating within the storyline but become just a bit uncomfortable when awareness of the implications of their activities dawns. Recommended.

So very believable. One of those difficult to put down books. Well told, and gives a balanced view of conflicts.

A slow start but gained pace as the story moved along. A few spelling and grammar errors were apparent, not a bad book but took too long to get up to speed

This is truly one magnificent read, the author has really gone to town with this story. It makes you wonder whether a massive incident has actually taken place or something very similar has occurred.

This has been one of the best books I have read in a long time.
John MacRae knows the system and how it operates.

This is a fairly long but exciting and enthralling read. The author obviously has a good knowledge of the culture behind the story line. Highly recommended.

This review is from: In The Name Of The Queen: Al Qaeda, the SAS, and the Secret Service (Kindle Edition)
Slow to start, but persevere and the story develops into an almost believable secret mission mainly based in Egypt and ending in Turkish Cyprus. Would have given it the full 5 stars, but for the appalling typos and missed words. Who on earth proof reads these novels?
