Top critical review
Board room politics and intrigue.
on 9 January 2015
I find myself at odds with all the excellent reviews that Ray Green has received for this novel. I could not honestly award it a five star review which the majority of reviewers have, but I have to put that down to my own, preferred type of thriller. Board room politics and infighting should have evoked an element of tension and anticipation for me as a reader, but it didn't happen. Ray Green's knowledge of this area of corporate management are evident, but for me, who always worked on the factory floor, they came over as tedious. I find myself questioning my own perception of this novel when so many others have reviewed it in glowing terms, so I bow to their views and accept that this is a book deserving of more stars than I can give. I recommend it to readers based on the unarguable reviews already posted.
