I first read this book Feb 2016. As book 2 is due out soon I decided to reread this, and I can safely say it was just as good the 2nd time around.
I have read and listened to the book this time and loved every bit of it. So thought I would share my original review again.
How much is real and how much is fiction, only YOU can decide!
July 2005: in the midst of Operation Theseus, the largest police investigation that the UK has ever known, Detective Inspector Jake Flannagan begins to ask difficult questions that lead to the mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend and his sudden suspension from the Metropolitan Police.
- Who masterminded London's summer of terror?
- Why can’t Flannagan make headway in the sprawling investigation?
- Is Jake’s absent girlfriend really who she claims to be?
It was an absolute privilege to read it.
It's fast paced and has you gripped right from the beginning. Based around DI Jake Flannagan and his quest to find the perpetrators of the London bombings. His quest to attempt to stop terrorist acts before they happen.
This book certainly makes you think. There is not a week goes by without seeing something regarding terrorism on the news, and this book is so interesting, it really does make you think what is really behind a lot of what goes on.
Jake is certainly one of those coppers that has his own set of rules. And he will follow where his crazy mind takes him.
There has certainly been an awful lot of knowledge or research put into this book and it's really made it one of the Must read books of 2016. It's very well written, interesting and will hold your attention all the way through.
You are taken on one hell of a ride through the pages.
All the way through this book and long after you finish reading it, you keep asking, how much of it was JUST a STORY. It really does have you thinking about it.
I'm now hoping that there are going to be many more books written by this author.
