Book Reviews

This first book in the Dave Roberts trilogy had me hooked from the beginning. It is a classic of the Jack Reacher-esque genre, but with a British military focus which is pithier and more contemporary in the context of the current geopolitical climate. There are a few editorial corners that need fixing, but these do not detract from the overall effect of this compelling page-turner. I also liked the less formulaic approach that Lee Child would have taken with regard to the hero’s dalliances with unfeasible pretty transient characters. There is a bit of sexual tension, but it is subtly done and not always about our main character, the enigmatic Dave Roberts. I look forward to book 2 and getting to know our character a little better. Well done Barry for a great debut novel, you definitely have the storyteller’s gift.

Scavenger Hunt 5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic debut novel, 8 Oct 2014

A really good read. It's not to long so can be read easily, ideal when you need to relax and escape in a busy week. It is not to gory or sexually explicit so suitable for teenagers or if you don't want anything to heavy. Love that the "hero" can stray into the grey not the usual all American hero type but the bad guys need to watch out! Will be downloading the next one to see what Dave gets up to next.
