I was enthralled by the book from start to finish. It is powerful and gripping and the lines between fact and fiction are cleverly blurred and keep you in suspense. The intricate plot keeps you on the edge of your seat and the author shows a great command of the use of language. The characters are realistic and true to life. I loved the way the author weaved his relationship with his son into the novel - was this autobiographical? It is a book you cannot put down until you have read the very last page – and what a last page it is!! All I can say without giving the plot away is that the last line is the perfect lead into what I hope will be a fantastic sequel! A MUST for any lover of action packed thrillers.

I grew up reading Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy. It's been a while since I became so totally immersed in a novel that I couldn't put it down. The action involves North Korean shenanigans and one seriously unscrupulous British politician. Topical stuff! The characters are diverse and credible and the bad guy is properly warped. This is the best thriller I've read in two decades.

What a great read. A real page turning thriller. Bang up to date with current global issues interwoven into the plot with a very cleverly interwoven sub plot, taking us literally all over the world. The author goes into astonishing detail relating to the worlds of finance,
espionage, medicine, politics, geography, and much more. The author must have done extensive research, or one suspects may have inside knowledge of many of the areas that this great yarn goes.
Thoroughly recommend this book, and I for one really look forward to the sequel, which is clearly set up in the final twist.
