Editorial Reviews


"You will fall in love with this novel in the first chapter and will be powerless to put it down. . . Corruption of Power is an incredible reading experience." (Awesome Indies Books)
"An up-to-the-minute compelling thriller that combines political sophistication with traditional gore and glory." - Ray Snoddy, former media editor of The Times and Financial Times and BBC presenter 

"This a terrific thriller beautifully paced as it gets faster and more furious in the final third of the book. I give it five stars." - Temple Emmet Williams, Former Editor, The Reader's Digest
"Corruption of Power, the second book in the Alex Leksin series is about as fine an example of a perfectly nuanced thriller, as you will read all year. Premised on Russia's quest to regain its former colonies, GW Eccles writes with the authority of an expert on the region, and he goes to great lengths to create an utterly convincing story world. The author puts the reader right in the middle of the Garabil Plateau in Turkmenistan, a place I had barely even heard of before I read this book. Fully realised characters, original action sequences and short chapters drive the pace of this outstanding thriller." (Lambert Nagle, author)
"I not only really enjoyed this book but I felt that I learnt something. It's been sold as a thriller but it is more than that. It's a literary experience and one I really, really enjoyed." (My Little Book Blog)
"Eccles writes in an easy to read style, and like many modern action writers he uses short chapters to keep the reader's attention, making page turning a must." (Whispering Stories)
"Corruption of Power was full of subtle nods to local cultures, ways of interacting and lifestyles that I, as a mere intermediate in world travel, just ate up. From the crowded markets of Turkmenistan to the chilling scenes in Russian boardrooms, the thriller was full of local colour and behind the scenes knowledge. It really filled out what could have been another run-of-the-mill spy story into a well-rounded novel. Think Jack Reacher meets Lonely Planet. This, and the excellent well thought out plot turns, made it a really easy read."
