!!An Absorbing, Gripping Read!!
on 28 December 2013
This is a cleverly written story with perfectly gauged amounts of intrigue and mystery. Jamie Strachan, a soldier within the intelligence core, cannot help but feel that there is more than just coincidence connecting two accidents, one involving his brother in-law and the other involving himself and his nephew Nick. Pushing his instincts as an analytical thinker aside, he tries not to dwell on what has happened, but is unable quell his thirst for an answer believing there is something not quite right about the incident in which he was involved. Meanwhile, Detective chief superintendant Clive Patterson is investigating a case with the same gut feeling that something is amiss. Together they try to get to the bottom of what is going on. This is a book you can easily lose yourself in, with so much detail and a well thought out story line it was incredibly hard to put down! As the story unravels you find yourself asking more questions, which I loved, there is nothing worse than a predictable book! And Mason N Forbes has done a wonderful job by avoiding just that! I will definitely be looking out for more of his works.
