Wow! Packed with excitement, danger, intrigue and peril – I loved it!
I absolutely adored Nick Sullivan and the enigmatic MI5 guy – I’d want those two in my corner if I were ever in a spot of trouble!
The storyline is well plotted and the tension just doesn’t let up, it is jammed full of ‘oh god how will he get out of this one’ situations that are all thrilling to read. I was completely engrossed in this story.
I didn’t particularly enjoy the women in the book being quite so secondary to everything but I guess this is a spin on a James Bondesque trope and it certainly didn’t spoil the book for me, just an observation.
Super delighted to note this is book 1 in the Nick Sullivan series and I already can’t wait to read book 2.
My thanks to Dark Stroke, Damp Pebbles and Karla Forbes for letting me be a part of this blog tour.
Blurb: The British Government is being blackmailed by criminals who have got their hands on a quantity of plutonium left over from the cold war. Only one man knows their identity and can prevent a catastrophe but he is on the run for a murder he didn’t commit and has no intention of being found. As the authorities attempt to hunt him down, the clock is ticking and they are running out of time. They pin their hopes on the fact that a bunch of amateurs won’t have nuclear technology and the worst they’ll come up with is a dirty bomb. With luck, the carnage can be limited. A few people might die in the explosion but the majority will run away at the first sign of danger and the radiation will drift harmlessly into the atmosphere. But what if the terrorists have found a way of keeping the radiation near to the ground, encouraging people to hang around breathing in death and when they invite them to their own slaughter they come willingly? They would be dangerous then…wouldn’t they?
