While I am not usually someone that particularly enjoys fast-paced action thrillers, this one (as well as the excellent follow-up '37 hours') caught my attention and had me gripped more or less from the off. The pace is relentless, combining a strong story line, interesting and very human characters, travel, and plenty - plenty - of action, much of it needing a strong stomach. Not to mention some mild eroticism. And if you are interested in diving, Kirwan's long experience of the sport allows him to weave accurate technical details with the practicalities and risks that can involved, particularly in the case of deep dives (the clue is in the title the book). You can virtually smell the sea and hear the sound of the respirators. Had me sweating more than once!
Great stuff, and I will look forwards to the 3rd in the series.

Definitely in the Lee Childs bracket. Had me gripped from the start (delighted when I realised it was the first book in a series). Characters that I was interested in, and a well-crafted plot that held my attention to the end. And an insight into diving that I never had. About to start the next volume.

I wouldn’t say a spy thriller would be top of my list of choices to read but I’m gradually coming round to this sub-genre, having read Rob Sinclair’s Enemy and James Ryker series. So when I was asked to read 66 Metres, I was interested to explore another spy story.

The characters in 66 Metres are larger than life but it’s not at the detriment of the book. I think that this adds to the complex tale that the author has woven across a number of locations, the main of which is the Scilly Islands which I must admit I don’t know too much about.

I really liked Nadia even though she’s kind of the baddie in all of this. She’s a strong woman, not to be messed with but she’s a woman of principle. She’s made a promise to her mother and she’s sticking to it, no matter what. And that sisterly bond she has with Katya; Nadia will do anything for her little sister!

Oh and Jake 😍 I got this hunky surfer dude type image in my head, a bit weathered from his time in the deep depths but in a rugged kind of way!!

The author’s writing is fast paced – you hit the ground running, or should I say the Thames diving?! When you read the book you’ll see what I mean! I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next, who would get the Rose!? Would Nadia and Katya be released from Kadinsky’s hold?

I thought I would enjoy this book when I started it but I was surprised by how much as I read through to the end. The climax at the end seemed to just keep giving. I’ll definitely be reading 37 Hours and the forthcoming 88˚ North.

Many thanks to J F Kirwan and Thick As Thieves Publicity & Promo Services for my e-copy of 66 Metres. I look forward to seeing what’s ahead for Nadia!

I absolutely adore a good spy novel, and a good spy novel 66 Metres certainly is. I soooooo want to be Nadia Laksheva, but without the hard-hitting family life it took to get there … it was a rough ‘un!! Nadia is a heroine like no other and I have a feeling that she is a character that a lot of readers are going to fall for – in a hard way, she is die-hard!!! Nadia is like the girl from Blindspot (f you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it)!

Espionage, crime, thriller, mystery, abuse, emotional turmoil (the list could go on) … 66 Metres has it all. Even the undersea interludes are to die for, and very very VERY realistic! I was there. I was SOOOOOOOOO there.

Transported around the world to London, Russia and other exotic places, the reader is taken on an action packed journey from downed helicopters to fighting off Navy SEALs – WOW!!!

66 Metres is exciting.
66 Metres is fast paced.
66 Metres is one heck of a roller coaster ride.

Oh man, J. F. Kirwan, you are sooooooo ‘warped speed’!

Nadia’s life is cold. Not just because it starts in Moscow. Not just because her father is a killer. Not because her mother is hard to understand and her sister stuck with a terrible crowd. Nadia’s life is cold because there is no way out. At least until an opportunity gives her the choice of sacrificing five years working for a bad guy for a better life for her and her sister, away from the Russian’s affairs, away from her father’s legacy.

Nadia is not your usual character. I felt she barely had a choice in everything that happened to her. You don’t choose your family, but you choose to protect them, and the things you agree to can lead you… oh so far. This story is very cold. Freezing even. This family was dysfunctional from the start and Nadia has no choice but to live with the knowledge her father wasn’t a saint, a sister is a prostitute, and her mother not a very good help. There was a sad and chilling feeling that grabbed me from the start, coming both from the characterization and the writing, transporting me into the ruthless world of survival. Because this is what this story is about, at its core.

To save her sister, and herself, Nadia ends up on dangerous missions and we catch up with her on her very last, the threshold of freedom, five years later. I could actually see the heavy chains on her ankles start to disappear until I realized this mission was special. Dangerous. Crazy! We know that Nadia has spent months in a training camp so she could face whatever challenge her Russian master would throw at her, but I wasn’t expecting her in the Thames!

It took me a little while to warm to Nadia’s story and the action itself.
