"Channelling â€˜The Wild Geeseâ€™ and â€˜Where Eagles Dare,â€™ Adlerâ€™s hard-boiled, knowing homage to the action thriller has a dark, modern twist."
- Harry Keeble, author of â€˜Crack Houseâ€™ and â€˜Terror Copsâ€™.
Raw young talent who manages to engage the reader through plot and characterisation.
An excellent thriller that had me hooked from the start, hoping for good things in future from this author.
Superb read, the author must be applauded. Gets my vote for sure :)
Thoroughly enjoyed this well researched read! Couldn't put it down
A great read, really enjoyed it.
Loved this book... exciting plot and a great page-turner. I particularly enjoyed the sardonic sense of humour and country-hopping exploits of Cal Winter and his crew. The events felt contemporary and relevant to current events, and I strongly feel that this author deserves encouragment and reward to progress his career â€“ he is a real talent to be nurtured and developed.
