This book is the first of a series of novels featuring Alec Fincham, a SBS operative. As an introduction it was a very good story. It seemed to start off slow and although it wasn't excitement all the way through, it kept me wanting to read it. In fact I read from about 20% to the end in just one day.
I didn't think the book was anything special, yet it was addictive reading. There were spelling mistakes, but I have informed the author and I might have had an earlier copy. These didn't really take me away from the read.
Will I read more of the exploits of Alec Fincham? Yes, I think I will. The character was interesting and not flashy like Dirk Pitt can often be. I'm not comparing these to Clive Custler books, more like Andy McNabb books.
