An interesting exploration into the events surrounding this mysterious true story. Using Steele and his supporters to examine the details behind the loss of this aeroplane and the 239 people is a fascinating departure from the purely fictional action that Steele has been involved in latterly. At the same time the story has all the action and ruthless outcomes associated with our hero.
By the end of the story can you be really sure that what you have read is not true?
A pacey and enjoyable read with the undercurrent of voracity.
The strength of Steele's convictions over matters of right and wrong draw him into a situation which brings him into conflict with corporate influences on the government and their effects on the ordinary people of the UK. Steele uses the full range of his influence with the Gurentai to try and deliver truth and accuracy and so give succour to a bereaved family and draw attention to corruption in high places. This story is in the mould of the pacey Steele novels that precede but in this one there are consequences to the well-defined central character and his relationships that may be unresolvable. An intriguing read that ends with a potentially disastrous puzzle and leaves the reader wanting more.
Author Colin Holcombe has begun his writing career with a very strong example of the genre. The tale is well sculptured and described with thoroughness. The characters in the story are credible and engender emotions within the reader which is always a good sign for me.
The author handles the action well and it is quite unique to have such vivid description of someone dying.
I enjoyed reading this book. It is not my usual genre but the style I found compelling and the characters were well constructed and believable. The dialogue was beautifully described and the tension between Tilly and Edwin built and maintained brilliantly. Highly recommended.
A very good beginning to what I am sure will be a fascinating account of the difficulties and privations suffered by our troops during war. As the preface states how are our troops managing in Afghanistan and how ill they manage in the future.
Great beginning and loads of interesting facts, historical novels I find stimulating and informative, and this will be no exception. Just thought that may be there were too many facts to take in and not enough about the narrator.
