Knight's writing is intense, driven, and keeps the reader hungry for the next page. There are admittedly problems with the spelling, grammar and punctuation throughout the book, but honestly I don't feel that these mistakes took away from the story itself.
Author – Colin Knight
Genre – Mystery, Suspense, Thriller
Rating 4 stars out of 5 Posted 5/7/16
Craig Wilson is an analyst with Canada's Integrated Terrorism Center
Morris Marshall is the head of the English Defense League, a radical right wing racist organization.
Anthony Mitton-Wells is a highly respected, wealthy, fanatical, domestic terrorist.
My impressions: terrifying, possible, fanatics, high placed domestic terrorist, despicable thugs.
It took a while for me to get into this plot, but then I was engrossed to the end. I even stayed up past midnight to finish it. Racist hatred is the central theme and manipulation of the losers at the bottom of the economy is the means of implementing a major act of violence to rid England of all immigrants, especially Muslims.
Of course, it takes a sick minded but intelligent, wealthy, high placed person or small group of people to put an outrageous plan like this in action, so we have the upper and lower classes uniting in an evil plot.
Craig Wilson is the experienced and respected analyst who has a bureaucrat for a boss instead of a professional who has advanced through the organization gaining a background in what Craig is most proficient at.
The guts of the story lays out Craig's fears of terrorist slipping through their nets due to bad analysis of available information or management's inept, micromanagement of his conclusions. Craig's fears soon prove to be real and he has to put his career on the line to force people above him to listen before thousands of victims are injured or killed.
The plot is well thought out and maintains intensity from start to finish.
The flaws are that internal thoughts need to be in italics, and there are occasional common editing errors. If those issues don't turn you off the story gets a 5 star rating based on the strong intense plot. If perfect editing is a must for you, knock the rating down a bit.

Vigilant Reader Book Reviews.
Bad Analysis was well written and extremely detailed. Colin Knight certainly did his research! This is not a fluff book or one for the faint of heart! If you enjoy reading Thrillers then you will probably love this book! Go get it!
*Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Bad Analysis is an excellently-paced spy thriller, hitting all the right notes of intrigue, duplicity, and desperation. The protagonist is sufficiently flawed to be credible, and the case is convincingly built on a series of tiny details, luck, and hunches. The conflict between the politic aspirations of Wilson’s bosses and the very real danger posed by their myopia is an especially nice touch. Unfortunately, the stellar plotting and story of this book was badly undermined by the technical aspects of the writing, especially in the punctuation. This is the kind of book that would easily hit five stars if not for the fact I had to stop on multiple occasions to figure out where the comma should have gone, and what the most likely meaning of the phrase had been intended to be.
