Review: I liked it. It felt like it was a very slow burner. It kept building up and building up. I was left waiting for it to get anywhere. Boy did it at the end, very action packed. I liked that it was set in the 1970s, it made it different and interesting to read. You learned a little bit of history. (the story and places were fictional) It didn’t really feel like a thriller more of an action adventure.
It was extremely well written and the pace was steady throughout. In some places, I did feel like the Author repeated himself with information he had already mentioned before. It only happened once or twice wasn’t anything bad. More of a reminder than anything.
It was split into different parts. You didn’t just follow the main character. It took you a while to realise that it was all linked in some way.
