There is a depth of descriptive prose not often found in novels of the genre and yet it still flows excellently. The characters are engaging and Graham gives all of their drives and actions purpose that makes clear sense to the reader, there's no need to jump to wild assumptions. It's clear that Ian Graham is an author to keep an eye on for fans of action novels. Could Declan McIver be the new Jack Reacher?
I have just finished this book in 2 days whilst on holiday. I don't read that often, but when I do, the book needs to be engaging, fast paced & difficult to put down - this was all of those. Couldn't wait to read each next chapter, much to the dismay of the girlfriend! Will certainly be looking for more books from the author.
