A good read,
This review is from: Sea Lord (Paperback)
As with some of the other reviewers, I knew who did it very quickly into the story. I have to say that it didn't spoil the experience at all. The plot was by no means predictable, but the first half was a bit slow as the protagonist doesn't really take assertive action against the bad guys until the second half of the book.
Cornwell has a fondness for the West Country - or at least that's apparent form his writing - and it shows here. South Devon gets as much attention as the supporting characters and if you live in the area you'll like the little nuances in the book.
If the book fails you as a thriller, it still has a lot to offer.
