"Astoundingly accomplished and pacey. Real-life police experience and know-how shine through on every page without it ever slowing the pace of the drama. The scenario he paints is a vivid and realistic one. Possibly too realistic!"Editor at Hodder & Stoughton
"A very exciting proposition indeed. The concept behind this book will make headlines."Editor at Hachette
"Subtle conspiracy, professionally written, credible and above all - intriguing. The desire to find out the truth will drive interest alone. Incredibly strong stuff."Editor at Harper Collins
"I adored the lead character, DI Jake Flannagan. He is one of a kind. I would class this novel in the same arena as the blockbusting best seller 'Bravo Two Zero' by Andy McNab - but for the fact that 'The Theseus Paradox' is far better written!"Editor at Penguin
"We're into the action immediately and there's a great sense of authenticity and control in David's storytelling. The plot revelations in this book are all too possible. The whole tale is just far too chillingly credible!"Agent at one of the UK's big five literary agencies
"Finished this at 6.00am this morning having thoroughly enjoyed it! Eloquent and adeptly argued, with an utterly thrilling conclusion. It leaves the reader hungry to research whether they believe this version of events!"Former Mail-on-Sunday journalist
"An explosive finale with dialogue that has that rare ring of authenticity to it. Brilliant stuff that smacks you in the face!"News editor at one of the world's top three international news agencies
From the Author
The quest for the truth about the London bombings took years to unravel. Thousands of men and women played their parts in helping to unravel that truth, some of which was presented to a public enquiry. Yet, despite years and years of painstaking work, I still feel that we only ever scratched the surface of what really went on.
I was not a victim of the bombings, but in many ways, my life was altered forever by that day too, along with a large proportion of the people whom I worked with on Operation Theseus. What started off as a normal day at work within the Anti-Terrorist Branch, turned into a nightmare that still haunts me and many others.
