Customer Review

on 4 September 2006
I've been reading Stephen Leather for 9 years and year after year wait with baited breath for his next novel to come out. I think he's one of this country's most talented writers and his past experience as a journalist shows through in both his research and his use of language and prose. I've found all of his books fast-paced, easy to read and very, very well written. If I have one criticism I think that some of his plot-lines are maybe weaker than others - The Fireman, for instance - but it was none the less gripping or enthralling. I get the impression that his books have only recently started getting the exposure they deserve in supermarkets,etc and hopefully in the future he will begin to become as much a household name as Jack Higgins. If you want a damned good thriller writer who with Soft Target managed to predict the London bombings roughly a year before they happened, with topical story-lines and relentless pace, suspense, and gritty realism then I would strongly recommend Stephen Leather's novels. I think he truly is a wonderful, wonderful writer and I hope his success continues.
