3.0 out of 5 stars 3rd star is because it made me laugh March 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book gets a star for its quirky characters, a second one for a more or less cohesive plot, and a third because it made me laugh. It loses a star for its myriad of spelling and grammatical errors and loses another for its lack of action.
Most of the characters in this tale spend their days and nights sitting around tables, cooking, eating, and drinking. They occasionally move from one country to another (pretty regularly crossing between Latvia and Lithuania) where they continue to sit around tables, etc.
There were exactly two action (more of less) scenes - one in which two members of the "action" squad set off some explosives in the bad guy's yard, ostensibly scaring him into inaction (why would a gazillionaire evildoer go cowardly over a few explosives?) and a second when a member of the team goes rogue to chase after the person who killed his girlfriend. Everything else is handled by a computer guru who communicates by Skype and an investigative journalist who always seems to know everything before the team, albeit, given her profession they try to keep her in the dark.
Quirky characters, no matter how lovable, do not a novel make. Read at your own risk!

More About the Author

I am Albert Andrew Hedley. I was born on the north east coast of England on St Patricks day 1956. After qualifying as a mechanical engineer in 1976, I relocated to Peterhead on the coast of Scotland to work in the oil industry. I married a Peterhead girl in 1977 and we had three children together, we now have two grandchildren.
In the late 1970s and into the 80s I would write poetry and short stories for the local press, many were very well received.
I wrote my first novel 'Jolanta's Revenge' in 2010 but did not publish until 2013, followed by my novel 'Different Shades of Red' published in 2013 and my book of English urban poetry 'Caprice Shadows' published in early 2014. All three have been well received.
In my novels I base the characters on real people, mostly friends and family as I know how they will react in most situations. My locations are also in the main taken from real life as it allows me to give them the flavour which they merit.
I find it quite difficult to describe myself, however I did once ask a close friend to describe me, he said "All smoke and mirrors or not, as the mood takes you." I quite like that.
