4.0 out of 5 stars A Very English Thriller, 29 Sept. 2011
This review is from: A Very English Revolution (Paperback)
A fast moving,action thriller that doesn't get too bogged down in description or backstory so holds the reader's interest. The novel explores the power, deceit and dark secrets of the Catholic church and its hidden influence on right-wing politics. In some ways the author could have taken more of risk and gone deeper into the dark side of the Church and its echoes years later. Very topical especially following the recent riots in Britain.

I liked that the story had strong female characters and one of them, Lucy Sayers, was a villain in the story, which was refreshing.

I didn't warm to Rachel as much as I did to Sarah and felt that the author could have opened up the layers of her personality more than he did. Hopefully we will get more of a glimpse at her past and what makes her the character she is in the sequel.

A good book to enjoy while relaxing on holiday, far away from all the tensions on British streets.
