This book captures you from the start….then twists and turns in every chapter, taking you on an intriguing roller coaster ride until the end. At first you think the main characters are Dan, Cate and Robbie, but then Gordon and Patricia enter the picture (along with a very nasty character – Stemper) and add another dimension to the already gripping story. It’s one of those books where all the baddies get exactly what they deserve and the good guys come through in the end! My only one criticism was that the story of how Gordon and Patricia are involved was a little long winded (so I skimmed that bit) and got on with the thrilling story!
I’ve never read Tom Bale before but will definitely try another of his books! Great Stuff!!!
