Reviews

"Macho, sexy, profoundly bloody and a wonderful adventure story" * Sunday Telegraph * "Surround-sound entertainment" * New York Times * "A classic" * Mail on Sunday * "With a slow-burning pace and a knack for a cliffhanger, Willocks builds the tension terrifically amid graphic slaughter and velvet-gloved treachery" * Time Out * "A novel of high adventure, blood, guts and romantic love...as master craftsman, [Willocks] tells his story with extraordinary pace" * Literary Review *
