Reading the Kindle edition but can’t find the version on here yet.
A great start with an unusual murder.
I agree with some other comments that this novel is a more plausible story than the Da Vinci Code, which I hated and couldn’t wait to get to the end of. The film was even worse than the book!
At the moment Sean Ryan has been escorted to the tarmac by two F-35′s into Irag while he tries to find out where his dead colleague Alex managed to take some photos of an unknown mosaic. Only for the Orthodox priest who gave him some information to be blasted from the road journey out by an IED.
And that’s about as far as I’ve got…. So we’re embroiled between London, Istanbul and Iraq with a little assistance from the British Consulate.
Watch this space for more on this book.
So, I did finally finish the book and have only gotten around to writing my review today. That’s really bad I know. Ooops!
What did I think in the end?
As said earlier it was an excellent opening and for the squeamish types maybe this isn’t the book for you if you don’t want to know about warm blood running all over the place!
The story was good although I did find it a bit jumpy going backwards and forwards between London and Istanbul. Not quite sure about the Iraq part being brought into it if only to bring the book to the up to date market?
However, I enjoyed the way it was written especially with the descriptions in and around Istanbul, which is still on my bucket list of places to visit one day. I did feel it ended a bit too quickly though once everything came to a conclusion but I would read another by the same author, just to check it wasn’t a flash in the pan.
Still better than the Da Vince Code for me!
