First I have read of this series but after a few chapters I was hooked. great character development and an unexpected outcome.
As ever with Bob Skinner, full throttle start to finish. Cleverly constructed and all the loose ends clearly on view for the reader to make of them what they will. Jardine makes no mistakes in his storytelling or in his series continuity. Bring on the next Bob Skinner epic
Brilliant story ,never wanted it to finish ,having read all the series I think it was the best can't wait for the next one
