The author takes the reader from London, Paris and the West Indies. We follow Harper Buchanan, a detective from London being drawn into a world of plots and subplots. Men seeking power with motives both political and criminal are trying to take advantage of the secret heart operation of the Prime Minister Sir Walter Julian’s and the future of the Island hangs in the balance. There is a looming coup which leads to a very carefully crafted thriller.

It is a fast paced narrative with a very interesting and likeable hero in Harper Buchanan, he goes back to his roots, an unwilling hero with a sense of justice that has to outwit and think his way out of the situations he finds himself in, he develops a very interesting partnership with a Parisian tenacious cigar-smoking female detective and there is lots of very enjoyable dialogue and tension between them. It is a very action packed book, with lots of twists. The ingredients of drugs, murder, politics and a little bit of love all mix beautifully into a highly enjoyable read. Take it on holiday or on a journey, you’ll love it!

I minute I saw Robert Banks Stewart's name on this book I knew I was in for a treat; he has given us so many wonderful TV viewing experiences. I was not disappointed. His new creation, Detective Sergeant Harper Buchanan is a winner. Son of ambitious West Indian parents, he is suave, handsome, a County cricketer and a university graduate being fast tracked for promotion at the Met. If thrillers are the genre for you, this one covers it all. Harper bends all the rules and regardles of danger to life and limb relentlessly tracks and pursues his quarry. Throw in a georgous, tough Lady Cop, the dubious delights of Paris,the magic of the West indies, vile murderous drug barons, corruption in business and politics at all levels and 'bingo' you won't be able to put it down. I hope Robert gives us many more Harper Buchanan stories in the future.

If you loved those classic British TV series like SHOESTRING and BERGERAC -- which Mr Banks Stewart created -- then you'll love this too. A rich mix of characters, each with a quirky twist, and a palette of precisely described locations laced with water, make this an engaging romp. Written in 52 bite-sized chapters, it's an easy read and entertainment all the way!

A really enjoyable well-plotted story, full of surprises, both nice and extremely nasty, that carries you along on a sea of suspense. Detective Sergeant Harper Buchanan, is an interesting character and certainly unique to British Crime Fiction, being a black cop on fast track promotion to the top ranks at the Met. His annoyance at being assigned, he suspects because of his skin colour, to 'babysit' the Prime Minister of a leading Caribbean Island, whose life is under threat, fades, as he is drawn into a plan called 'Operation Hurricane' and a sinister world of drug dealing and political corruption that threatens his own life. It's great!

Format: Paperback
This must be the best crime thriller I've read that involves the Caribbean and, bravely, the hero is a handsome British-born and educated West Indian Scotland Yard man who's never been back to the island of his parents. There's also a delightful relationship that begins in Paris with a girl from Martinique. Compared to that rubbishy, unfunny BBC drama seriesset in the Caribbean, this is the the real thing.
