As topical as tomorrow's headlines and a compelling, taut read.
On the thriller front the author keeps the reader guessing using cleverly integrated red herrings that are both fleeting and apparently insignificant in order to repeatedly throw the reader off the scent. Politically the author's obvious knowledge of each of the areas in which the book is set ensures that the political and religious debate reflects that which takes place in such areas and not in the minds of the metropolitan elite. This brave agenda seems designed to challenge readers of both left and right wing persuasions to question both the validity of their convictions and the effect these can have on others.
This is an honest and brave first outing from SG Norris and I look forward to his next effort.
I liked that the story had strong female characters and one of them, Lucy Sayers, was a villain in the story, which was refreshing.
I didn't warm to Rachel as much as I did to Sarah and felt that the author could have opened up the layers of her personality more than he did. Hopefully we will get more of a glimpse at her past and what makes her the character she is in the sequel.
A good book to enjoy while relaxing on holiday, far away from all the tensions on British streets.
The themes, ie. religion, political extremism and corruption appealed, but the plot was so unbelievable and the characters so two dimensional that I was constantly put in mind of an A level English language student. Maybe that's unkind - to the A level student, obviously. But the analogy is fair insofar as the author seems enthusiastic and over zealous in that partially informed way of one finding his political feet. And don't get me started on the dialogue...
In short, one most definitely to miss.
I normally read something based a little bit more on the historic side like Bernard Cromwell but would recommend this as a good read.
