Product Details

Dear Mr Videcette,
I have a complaint to make. Make that several . I start your book and what happens? Real life disappears. You write with such vivid descriptions and enough “punch” to pull me into the storyline from the outset that everything around me ceases to exist. Jake is a character- a bit of a case in this one. His life before hand has fallen to pieces and so is he. And here is me having to read further to make sure that the poor bloke is alright. And then there is the main story line. Vehicles parked outside a nightclub being possible bombs and then linked to the Glasgow airport bombings. How can I sleep , eat. survive without knowing what is going to happen and is Jake going to be OK? You might have guessed by now that I have a bit of a “thing” for Jake. Well, he is a caring chap. One of those you know would do anything to help a friend, so the very least I can do for him is cover his back . By this I mean get to the back cover to make sure that he lives. Mark- don’t get me started! A professional altercation between him and Jake- both DI’s. Mark is out to get rid of Jake as Jake shows up his inexperience and incompetence. Lemme at him! I love that there is another side to the story with this. A side that shows the characters in a very different type of combat. And then Jake goes and gets himself mixed up in another investigation with his ex-girlfriend. As if he doesn’t have enough to do! Trouble sees Jake and stalks him until he takes notice and then being the guy that he is goes after the bad guys. Gotta love him! Aside from the story there is a history line after the book which makes for very interesting reading. I won’t say anything but those of us who remember a certain period of events along with others interested in Governments and “deals” will find this an intriguing addendum.

Got to go now- Starving and dehydrated but with a smile. Love the scone analogy! As ever a brilliant book to keep the reader enthralled. Next time-please give me a warning (or food and drink). I very much look forward to the next installment. Mr Videcette- you owe me chocolate.I voluntarily chose to read this ARC and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
