Customer Reviews

Well, this is certainly an alternative kind of thriller! Melia has been put in charge of organising security for the visit of a Chinese government official – not to London, the capital, but to Salford. The importance has been explained to her drawing similarities to events in 1914 when a visiting dignitary was killed in another country and the fallout led to the great war. So there is plenty at stake – can Melia get it right? Having read this from beginning to end, I’m still not entirely sure what to make of it. At times I wondered if it was a bit of a spoof, but I suspect it was just a very different style of writing to what I’m used to. Perhaps, I would have felt differently if I had read the series from the beginning? As it was, I often felt wrong-footed and I reckon that I’m not really the target audience for this book. Regardless of my personal feelings towards the novel, a final edit would have made it much more palatable. As followers of my reviews know, I’m only too happy to hold my hand up to being a bit pedantic and minor errors do annoy me more than most. Having checked other reviewers opinions (after writing my own), I can see that – not for the first time – I’m out of step! If you like something different to read, this may well be one for you. For me, it’s 3.5*.
