CRAMMED with adventure, this book has more twists and turns than a plate of spaghetti and is sure to grip any avid reader’s emotions throughout its 223 pages.

Centred around the life of Ewan Strachan, a second rate journalist, who ends up becoming a suspect in a serious murder investigation, the book manages to present the life of crime in a very realistic manner.

The author now lives in Cumbria but has spent time in Sweden and so conjures up an authentic account of Scandinavian life.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a really dramatic read.
