'This is up there with Harry Sidebottom and Ben Kane' M.C. Scott. 'A thumping good read, well-crafted, atmospheric and thoroughly enjoyable. Where's the next volume, please?' Ben Kane. 'Hugely enjoyable. The author winds up tension into an explosion of fast-paced events' Conn Iggulden. 'Ian imbues any situation with some wonderful twists, reinforcing that nothing in life (and therefore within these pages) is as simple as it seems ... a writing masterclass in adding research and factoids that help rather than hinder the pace' The Bookbag.
