The Art of Misdirection: A World War 2 Thriller
The Art of Misdirection: A World War 2 Thriller
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch World War 2 mystery thriller, 2 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A first-class historical thriller, full of intriguing characters, authentic period detail and a twisty plot which builds to a gripping climax.

Veteran thieves Hudson and Howell plan an audacious heist to steal a rare art treasure stored deep within the vaults of London Underground during the height of the Blitz. Yet when their meticulously planned robbery goes wrong, Hudson find himself shot, betrayed, a captive and with his life hanging by a thread.

Freed by an unlikely ally, he pursues his old mentor through London's dark underbelly in search of answers, becoming entangled in a morass of bent coppers and shadowy criminals, ultimately becoming embroiled in a sinister plot which could shake the very foundations of empire itself. When duty and dishonour collide, will this master thief serve his own self-interest or heed his country's call?

Cunliffe weaves a twisting, deeply satisfying tale which takes you through the very heart of war-torn London under the shadow of the Blitz. Powerful, evocative and at times even tender, you can practically smell the smoke, see the searchlights pierce the skies and hear the drone of German bombers overhead. Huddle down in the nearest Anderson shelter and enjoy this finely crafted and absorbing mystery thriller.

1.0 out of 5 stars ... short and riddled with spelling errors - might be useful for kids/students as an easily digestible intro I suppose ..., 25 Feb. 2015

Extremely short and riddled with spelling errors - might be useful for kids/students as an easily digestible intro I suppose but that's taking a rather generous view. If you're looking for a proper examination of Napoleon's life and legacy, then this isn't it.

This review is from: World War Z (Kindle Edition)
Superb read, by turns chilling, horrific, humane and quietly subversive, a brilliant portrait of of how a zombie apocalypse might play out...
