The novel has many brilliantly formed characters and a story line which is thoroughly captivating – exploring a world of top-level espionage and gritty street-level drug crime. A beautifully crafted book which I would recommend wholeheartedly.
The very first part of the book is a bit of background on Branen.. all very interesting but I was waiting to get to the good stuff…and the author didn’t keep me waiting long.
As soon as Branen’s daughter is involved the fast pace of the story turns to suspense and a brilliant story builds up leading on from her murder.
For me two characters stood out, Snowman and Harry.. these guys play pivotal parts in the book and I just loved any scene with them in.
One of the best things about this book is how the author has decided to write it. Each part of the story is broke down into manageable chunks clearly stating who is involved. This style of writing made it very easy for me to read and helped reinforce the character info you’ve learnt as you can clearly see their progression. There is also a section at the beginning of the book which details each character.. I must admit I skipped this and don’t think it did me any harm.. the author explained each characters and their motivations well enough during the story
The plot line has twists and turns and was exciting to read.. with each page turn i was left wondering what else could possibly happen! I won’t lie there is a lot going on within the plot but for me it all worked. It’s a gritty crime drama full of suspense.. for me it was like James Bond.. but with a lot of drugs involved set in the seedy underworld of Soho.
I’d definitely like to see where the author goes next. If you enjoy crime gritty/dirty/dark crime books this book will work for you.
Thank you to Kate Appleton and Clink Street Publishing for this review copy.
The story for me took a little bit of time to get into but once we watch an incredibly well known incident take place, it starts to warm up. After the death of Carrie when Branen comes back to the UK to find out who murdered her and why, that’s when the story really took off for me. The author has obviously put his heart and soul into his fictional creations and his depth of knowledge and research really shows. I almost felt I was in Soho at times, it came to life very vividly and practically lifted off the pages so I could smell and even feel the atmosphere. There is a lot of sex, violence and drugs as you would expect but it’s all integral to the plot. I loved The Controller character (large gin, little tonic!) And was gobsmacked several times by twists in the plot. Warning though, this ends on a cliffhanger ripe for part two. Thrillers such as this one aren’t normally my cup of tea but if you want a thriller with a difference then this is the one for you.
Many thanks to Kate Appleton at authoright and Clink Street Publishing for my review copy.
I was initially drawn to this book after seeing what I believe to be a captivating cover. The colours and contrast drew me in, so when asked if I wanted to take part in the blog tour, I read the blurb and thought this book definitely sounds right up my street!
The story is set in London and the author’s description makes you feel you are right there in the heart of Soho. It is a thriller that mixes government agencies, murder and the search for answers into an interesting story-line. In terms of the plot, I was left feeling that a lot of information was crammed into the first half of this story which in fact, could have been left out. There was, for me, just so much background, it almost felt slightly chaotic and I found that I was not immediately hooked. But as the story unravelled, I was just unable to stop turning the pages!
Various themes were evident within this book. Love, loss, revenge are just a few to mention. There is a lot going on and you have to pay attention so that you can piece the story together as Branen (the protagonist) returns to Soho after being in hiding for 20 years. The characters are what intrigued me the most in this book. The choice of names, the individual personalities and being drip-fed their stories made me want to learn more about them.
The last half of the book was exceptional in my opinion and had the book started here — well I think my rating would have been very different. It was action-packed, totally unnerving (in a good way) and really allowed the reader to see what was at the heart of this story.
I would definitely recommend this book to those of you who enjoy gritty, action thrillers and I will be keeping my eye out for A.W. Rock as once I got through the mass of information at the start, I just could not put this book down!

I hope the book will be translated into Italian because I am sure that Italy would become a bestseller
