This is the first book that I have read by Will Adams and although I found it a little slow to start off with it soon became a page turner. The story continues on from where the storyline of the previous novel finished. I didn’t find it a problem that I hadn’t read the previous novel because this story stands on it’s own. The plot has it’s share of twists and turns as the two main characters are drawn together from their separate lives. Along the way it also covers some aspects of maritime history which is interesting in itself.
I found it an easy read with just enough plot twists to keep it interesting until the last page. If you like this type of thriller it would be an ideal holiday read.
