    "Hungry Ghost"

    I particularly enjoyed this story - goes at a fast pace, is engaging and all very plausible. For the most part set in areas of Hong Kong and the New Territories that I used to know well. One of Stephen Leather's better books - well read and thoroughly enjoyed.

    "An action packed book for lads, superbly read"

    Great read for the lads. Action packed from the off and Russell Boulter reads this book so well. a real must if you like an action packed thriller. couldn't believe how old the book was as it has worn the years well.
