This book starts with a BANG! And from there it does not stop.
Matt Drake is retired SAS, he is trying to transition to civilian life as a photographer along with his computer geek friend and tenant. He is drawn into trying to stop not just one madman, but two from inadvertently destroying the world (oh yeah, these two madmen are fighting each other at the same time).
After reading a book, I don’t often think this…but this book would be better as a movie. The action is non-stop, the descriptions of places are sometimes over the top, and at times the dialogue was hard to follow. Don’t get me wrong, the plot was good. In my opinion, it is just something that would have flowed better as a visual, or perhaps with a bit of fine tuning.
I am having a hard time with this one. While I enjoyed the concept, it’s almost like the author is trying to do too much. Sometimes the K.I.S.S. principle really does apply (keep it simple stupid). David Leadbeater had a really good story in his head and the transition to paper could have been better.
