Review this Book

A Spot of Vengeance


Ex-Army intelligence Danny Swift has always yearned to be an artist. By coincidence, he meets art dealer Hafiz De Mercurio who promises to help him launch his career. Little does Danny know that Hafiz hides behind a deadly cloak of deception until British intelligence recruit Danny, and his perilous mission is to covertly observe the elusive Hafiz. They believe something big is coming, something coordinated, a terror spectacular to rival anything seen before, and the key lies in a cypher hidden in works of art. Unable to refuse, Danny is drawn into a world he’d turned his back on, a world of lies, deception and double-dealing.

As the clock ticks down and Danny begins to crack the code surrounding the enigmatic Hafiz, Danny will be tested in ways he never imagined... including preventing the massacre of innocent people and artworks on display in the eleven Gagosian galleries around the world.

A brilliant read that I could not put down. It is full of twist and turns, the art world and miliarty - perfect. I loved the character of Danny and I know there are more adventures for him... I am now waiting for new books from this author.

My Recommendation


Me thinks there is another "ex" solider/spy who loves art but is drawn back to violence? Strong writing here although there is a resonance of "tea" with a few phrases :), I still enjoyed the story and the twist with Hafiz. "Danny-boy" shows promise throughout for a sequel no doubt!
