The Black Sun Paperback – 3 April 2006
PRAISE FOR JAMES TWINING’S THE DOUBLE EAGLE
‘A carefully constructed tale straight out of the Dan Brown mould of thriller writing’
‘The Double Eagle will leave you breathless, but never dizzy. Solid debut work’
'This would make the perfect Tom Cruise movie'
The Independent on Sunday
‘A captivating, engrossing debut,…a fast-paced tale of international crime and skullduggery written with style and panache. Twining is a worthy successor to Forsyth, Follett, and Higgins. Highly recommended.’ Christoper Reich
‘This is an auspicious beginning for a fledgling series’ Publishers Weekly
‘Twining's obvious research pays off as we are treated to a compelling fusion of real historical events and modern thrills. His references to notable art and artifacts, especially pieces lost to art thieves, lend an air of veracity to the entire novel’ Library Journal
‘Brilliantly written with numerous double crosses taking place, James Twining has created a delightful and thought-provoking protagonist. Along with deceit, shattered promises, and murder all going hand in hand The Double Eagle is certainly a pacy novel’ Shots
