“Shankin is a great main character – he has a good side keeping him from being a cold-blooded killer, but a keen sense of survival means he is willing to break the law and kill those that threaten him. The plot takes Shanklin across the world and introduces a number of other characters. Whilst sometimes a large number of characters and names can confuse and results with the plot becoming diluted, Rees manages to keep on track and gives each character a reason for their existence. Each page holds its own story and keeps the pace going from strength to strength. And just when you think it’s all over, there is another twist. My only criticism? The book is left on a cliff hanger meaning I will have to wait to see how Shanklin gets himself out of ” – Crime Squad.
