5.0 out of 5 stars Action packed full of suspense...

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 June 2021

Crikey, what an entrance to the book. Without giving anything away it was extremely fast paced, shocking and completely unexpected. What a lad John is. Probably the best introduction to a book I’ve read all year so far.

The writing is detailed and keeps you wanting more. As John embarks on his new (not wanted but end up having to be part of) adventure you have absolutely no clue what’s going to happen the deeper you get into the book. Only 5 chapters in and I could imagine this being a film or a series which grasps millions of viewers.

As a favour to an old friend in the FBI John returns to West Texas. But there is now a whole new town and way of life that has sprung up since he was last there ten years previously. He soon finds out he is in the middle of some very rich men who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

About Ian ...

Ian is a Londoner born and bred, now living in the leafy south west with his family, cat, tortoise and a hamster.


He started writing seriously in his twenties, black comedies normally but was never able to complete a novel, and created mostly short stories.


This carried on until he  began working on an idea for a thriller, then by chance was in Las Vegas for work and realised that it was the perfect setting and was able to (finally) finish the work. He has always enjoyed telling stories and loves to write.
