Now i’ve read quite a few Desmond Bagley books (i’d say about 7 of his 16 books) and enjoyed them all, this one included. I’ve actually just looked through my section on the bookshelf of unread books and found two more, which is all good as I enjoy his writing style which is rather quick paced but this suits the thriller books he writes. All i all a smashing read and another happy reader.
