Loved this book. Fast paced from the word go and till the end. Provides such insight into our Secret Services....And used current atrocities that we all remember. I loved the main character. Has that Never Say Die attitude and the loyalty of each member of the team to one another....It's gritty and sad in some parts where the vulnerable are victims. You read it knowing that there's a lot of truth in this fictional story. And the fear for our future is real. Going to download the second book right now!

A pity that the publisher's editor did not insist on less James Bond-ish derring-do and more plot. I got tired of the breakneck narrative (sometimes unbelievable) that reads like a Boys Own Paper adventure story or a film script. However I enjoyed the procedural descriptions obviously written by somebody who had been there and done it. Would I buy another by the same author? Don't know!

Confusing wearisome story with lots of references to Police Departments by name etc. This book has it all – child kidnapping, trafficking and murder, Syrian suicide bombers, Turkish Hitmen, Russian Mafia Overlords, Sex parties, a corrupt Government Minister and Police Chief. What more do you want?
And then the main character is a super brilliant detective who is totally nerveless with Superiors and opponents armed with bombs and of course is indestructible.

The infighting between different departments ring bells with other conglomerates I have been involved with. Try hard to keep up with the names and nicknames of the people involved in the story. It is eerily in line with what is actually happening in Britain early in 2018. A really good read

I could not put this book down. What a great story, and the attention to detail was breathtaking . Obviously the authors experience in the police gives you a blow by blow account of actual procedure . The plot seems like a true story, it's so plausible especially the blackmailing of politicians and security agents who have free rein to do as they please .

The news media will never print a story like this. It feels very much like a John Carre novel, in that it outlines the horrors of government and its minions, by people in the know.
Written by a previous Special Branch commander, who no doubt has seen his hard work exposing villains, gone to waste, it tells a harrowing tale.
The story is well written, fast paced and engaging. Kerr is a well drawn hero, who along with his loyal team elicit the truth whilst their bosses desert them.
I look forward to reading another.

What a great read this book was. Some books that you read, it takes around 50 pages to get into it. This book was gripping from the first page and I will recommend this book and Roger Pearce to my friends. I look forward to reading his next book.

After reading quite a number of proclaimed and established "political thriller " writers and being disappointed by their "recipe" efforts it was a relief to read this refreshingly in depth and well written thriller by a knowledgeable newcomer . I hope his future efforts will maintain this excellent standard ! What a relief it can be to find an actual "good read !"

Best book I have read this year almost ran out of iPad juice reading none stop, if only a quarter of the storyline is true it's scary best police thriller to date , can't wait for the next book.

This is a really good, uncomplicated, plain vanilla thriller with a terrific plotline, occasionally stretching credulity, first rate characters and real pace. If half of this is a faithful reflection of what the security services are up against God help us. What makes the plot compelling is the thread of what the author calls The Great British Hypocrisy which is what keeps the wheels of our establishment greased in the name of national self-interest.
