Very very goodReviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 August 2013
Having read Graham Hurley's later books (DI Farraday etc.,) I decided to go back and read this first of his standalone novels. It was an excellent read. I can't recommend it enough. One of the things with books on kindle, is that you're not so aware of the length of the book. This seemed a very long book, and just when you think the plot is coming to a conclusion, GH takes it further. I feel he's put a lot into this book, and I've just purchased Reaper and The Devil's Breath on the strength of that. One of my faults is that I tend to speed read when I'm trying to get to the conclusion of the plot; but with this book I wanted to read and savour every word. It was a very very good and satisfying read.

If you were around in the 80s you will love this.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 March 2017
Excellent, mostly gripping. There was a passage during the 'core action' near the middle where I just couldn't stop reading...way into the small hours even on a 'school night'. I'll be buying more of Mr. Hurley's books.

Good read.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 August 2015
Turkey's first novel has all the requirements for a good read. A bit rough round the edges with perhaps too many side characters the novel still engages the reader. Set in Portsmouth on the eve of a potential nuclear war the book charts well the scenarios and situations that may arise and the effect on people.
Well worth reading

Another superb book by this highly skilled author.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 January 2013
Graham Hurley is very good at all aspects of writing. His research is excelleny his characters vivid and convincing and his plots are exiting and clever. The pace of all his novels keeps the reader rivetted. This book was a little different dealing with the exercise of power in an emergency situation and was thought provoking as well as a very entertaining read.
