As stated in some prior reviews, the plot is pretty thin. There are no surprises or plot twists. But because of the suspenseful writing and drama, I found the story engaging enough that I was drawn along until the end. The best part was in the cave with Pete and Josh while they tried to find their way out by following the sheep.
It’s also terrifying to think there might be a country with this type of weapon in their arsenal. Shudder!!
And here is what takes away from the story. There’s a mannerism that Thornton uses excessively as a sign of frustration or anger. It became annoying. I can see one person doing it as a habit, but not every character. It’s the slamming of fists or hands on desks, tables and steering wheels. I also found a handful of proofreading errors.
I recommend this book for a suspenseful romp through the English countryside and parts of London. I give my 4 feathers.
