Fantastic read, could not put the book down.

Who needs a female James Bond? Lucinda Spark is already out there! Clearly a writer with a lot more to give; the story is gripping and exciting and it's so well written, with measure and tempo. Harry Bucknall obviously has a good understanding of the Middle East, its' peoples and religions too, so I learned a lot as well as being entertained; not an easy combination to get right. Well done to him. I genuinely look forward to reading what Lucinda Spark does next.
Buy and read this book, and then tell your mates. Wonderful stuff.
