Would of appreciated the removal of the charity shop stickers though!! Verified purchase: Yes Condition: Pre-owned. Never judge a book by its cover- Never was this phrase more appropriate than with this novel. The front cover and spine have artwork that is reminiscent of a s Commando comic.

However what is inside is in no way done justice by the artwork. If you like action with a carefully thought through plot, with some twists, then this is for you. I have never read any of Mr Hollands books prior to this, or knew anything about the main character Jack Tanner, who features in other titles. However this does wet the readers appetite and encourages exploration of others works.
On turning the first page, you are presented with maps, and a page of abbreviations- this is a serious book, and the author clearly kno ws his topic, and scripts a ripping yarn. You know that you are not in for throwaway beach read, but a serious story that develops well. The plot revolves on two levels, and close attention needs to be paid to geographic features- where the maps become invaluable, otherwise you will become lost easily.
All characters are well fleshed out believable and its is easy to immerse oneself in s Cairo, and the surrounding area. One criticism and this applies to many books is that the profile of the story appears crafted to cover a certain amount of pages, in this case The end comes rapidly and whilst all loose ends are nicely tidied up it all finishes rather quickly. I suspect another 50 pages could have easily been found, to tie matters up in a more orderly manner. Ultimately the test of any book is would I buy another from this author? Whilst as mentioned above I would rejig the artwork as books are often selected in libraries on the spine image.
