Reviews

'Vividly written and delivering a glimpse of what counter-terrorism feels like, it's a highly promising start from a writer who could well have a big future.'
Daily Mail
'The high-octane action begins on page one and doesn't let up until the end. A top-notch thriller with the unmistakeable ring of authenticity.'
Peter Robinson
'Dramatic, fast-paced, codeword-heavy fun.'
Guardian
'It's a tribute to Roger Pearce's ability that the plot never becomes inpenetrable and there's an uncomfortable authenticity as real-life operations are referenced... a breathless, hurtling page-turner.'
Financial Times
