I downloaded what appears to be the whole series about Jonny Davies and they are all quite good yarns that you could easily lose yourself in BUT and it's a great big BUT, the Author seems to have not been taught any English at all in school and he has also saved a fortune on getting his novels proofread by competent people. This means that just as you are suspending disbelief you are jarred back into the real world by a really dumb spelling error. These include Too a hell of a lot here he means to, thee likewise where he means the, Up and at 'em written as Up and Atom!!
Sorry to give such a poor score but writing like this shows a total lack of respect for his readership.

What a truly awful read. I couldn't believe how bad it could get, so I kept reading hoping there was some point to it. Alas there is no reason for anyone to plough through this turgid mess of butchered English. Did anyone proof read this because it's obvious Mr Crowley didn't.
This book is 3 times longer that it could be to do the same job. Full of rubbish descriptions of events and actions that lend nothing to the plot. Has Mr Crowley ever been to England? He shows total ignorance of the geography London and the home counties. e.g. the M4 takes you west NOT north! A simple atlas please!!! "He" stops on the outskirts of Oxfordshire. He travels miles across London in minutes yet takes several hours to travel to Brize Norton. He stops in Hammersmith yet minutes later he ends up in Shoreditch without any explaination as to why. Whats that all about?
Don't even think about the spelling and use of our English language. Several times (once could be a mistake) he uses the word "gage" meaning gauge. Every door is "ripped" open. Every movement is "exploded". How on earth does someone's head explode between the front seats??? Irish people do not use the words "so it is" in every sentence. He finds "drive" in a manual transmission. The list could go on and on.
I still can't believe that I went through to the utterly pointless ending. Not only does the reader realise that there was absolutely no plot to the book, but apparently the hero dies achieving nothing after being shot in the chest with a shotgun. As the book is written in the 1st person, how can he describe his own death? No doubt to recover for the next book.
Suffice it to say that this is the first book I've removed from my Kindle and I've read 100's..........some bad but NONE compares to this.

This is the third book in the series and, I must say, it has been a bit of a struggle to get this far.

Mr Crowley seems to have relied completely on a spellchecker to do the proofreading. There are so many correctly-spelt but inappropriate words throughout the 3 books I have read so far - for example a 'breech of international law' should be breach.

There are also quite a lot of unnecessary commas and the usual unnecessary apostrophes which turn plurals into possessives, not to mention the usual interchanging of 'their/they're/there'. I could go on.

Ultimately I think these are good bloke-type books, but they need to flow better. The aforementioned typographical problems prevent that.

Get your work properly proof-read, Mr Crowley, I think they will do much better. In fact, let me proof read for you....?

Fast moving, intriguing, well written and compelling read. Found it difficult to put the book down. Lots of twists and turns throughout. Highly recommended.

Another good read from PM Crowley,, plot twists and turns towards the end, but some over fictional pieces, nevertheless hundred miles an hour action interlaced with scene setting preparatory text giving an air of reality to the story

More like a comedy of errors. With the mistakes made by so called ex SAS men they would have been dead before they left their front door.

The first book was quite good but this has now become silly
