Product Description

Review

"'Double Cross moves at double time, twisting like a sidewinder and kicking like a mule. Woodrow plots like Dan Brown and sets locations like Clive Cussler, but his characterisation is superior to either - a refreshingly imperfect hero, a femme more feisty than fatale, and a supporting cast expertly rendered in shades of light and dark. For a debut thriller - come to think of it, for a thriller full stop - Double Cross is exceptionally accomplished. If this is the first you've heard of Patrick Woodrow, rest assured it won't be the last.' - Boris Starling, bestselling author of Messiah."

One of the greatest benefits of online shopping are customer reviews (as long as they're not just a few effusive comments that could have been written by company employees!). I have been saved from many a bad purchase of e.g. electrical goods, by consistent but constructive bad reviews. However, where it is a matter of taste, rather than function, it must be taken into account that anyone can write a review. I was so alarmed by one person's one-star review of this book, a review which is more of a rant than a review, that for the first time ever I looked into the author and the other reviews written by him. From seeing the sort of material to which this reviewer awards five stars, I concluded that his tastes are so diametrically opposed to mine that I should dismiss his negative review entirely and not let it influence me. I suggest others also look into negative reviews and decide whether the person posting the negative review is someone whose opinion they might respect.
I'm a fan of Clive Cussler and thought 'Double Cross' to be in the same vein. I've yet to find a book that starts badly and gets better (I've struggled to stick with books in the past but always to no avail) and though I'm not far into this book (audio version) yet, it has me gripped.

Highly recommended for prisoners of airline seats, sick-beds and Her Majesty. Not recommended for busy readers who cannot afford the time to guzzle 400 pages at one sitting. The average chapter length is only 5 or so pages - but alas they provide no obvious put down point as each ends with a barbed fish-hook for your attention. A swashbuckling treasure hunt both above and below the ocean's surface. The excitement is relentless and the style free flowing. I was fortunate to get a preview copy. I wish now I hadn't opened it until my next flight back to Europe.

I picked up a copy of Double Cross at the airport a few days ago (it is not on general release yet) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Woodrow's style is punchy, sharp and witty - the book is a joy to read. With 77 chapters over 400 pages it is written to allow you to put it down and come back later. But the gripping plot (the end is truly spectacular) means that the book is unputdownable.
This has to be the best thriller of the year. I can't wait for Woodrow to write a sequel!

'Double Cross' got my pulse racing. Gripping story, brilliantly drawn characters and some funny and wonderfully observed lines. I miss Ed Strachan like an old friend.

This book was found amongst the shelves of Boyes of all places and I wondered if it would be value for money. It starts at a fast pace and keeps you going throughout. It is a well thought out book with some clever twists and turns. My only negative comment is that the title forewarns you a little and it has an air of predictability about it.

Nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed it and had it read in a couple of days, it merits my positive comments as it meets what I look for in a armchair book. As Patrick's first novel I feel he has a talent that he should follow.

As a diving instructor I was conscious of the technical facts of sub aqua diving and found them close enough to be right.

I look forward to future novels of this type in anticipation.

Double Cross is a triumph of a thriller in the vein of Clive Cussler. The complex plot twists and turns keeping the reader riveted. Patrick's debut is a fantastic read and anyone familiar with Dan Brown, Clive Cussler or for that matter, any well known thriller writer, should snap this title up if only to say that they read his first title of what will surely be many best sellers of the future. The diving action is accurately described and believable. The characters are well put together and colourful. I've grown bored of Cussler recently and will pre-order Woodrow's next title without hesitation.
