"This is an exciting extract that I enjoyed reading. Straight in from the opening sentence - BANG - literally - which I feel is probably essential for a novel of this genre.

The narrative is slick and well developed which adds to the pace and unfolding of the story. There are lots of characters, switching here and there, but the author has structured this so well, and in such a way, for there to be no doubt or confusion in the mind of the reader as to what is happening. The writing is dialogue heavy in places, but in my opinion this works well also. Most impressive were the descriptions of Spanish cities, clearly the author is a lover of, and is very knowledgeable about, the country. On the whole, a cracking opening."
