Western Telegraph, St Davids
Author hoping book sales go with a bang 3:59pm Friday 2nd May 2014 in Local News
"Dead Centre": author Owen Jones ST DAVIDS and suicide bombers - these are not two things that you would usually associate with each other, but that is indeed that case in a new book.
Welsh author Owen Jones has recently published 'Dead Centre,' a thriller about two former Welsh SAS soldiers who are running an agency for suicide bombers on a farm just outside of St Davids.
Reviewed By Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite
Dead Centre - Not All Suicide Bombers are Religious by Owen Jones was a great read. A well written thriller that starts off on top gear and stays there all the way through. The scary thing is this sort of event could happen - could be happening now for all we know - and the subject is likely to get one or two backs up. However, subject aside, Mr. Jones has written a superb story, with great characters, that spans 9 different countries and dozens more cities. Excellent book, I will definitely be looking out for more from the same author.
Barry and District News 8th May 2014 A THRILLER that takes place across the globe features not only a lead character from the author's native Barry, but also scenes that take place in the town.
Dead Centre, a political thriller about a terrorist agency being run from a farm in Wales, takes in Rhoose airport and even Barry's Master Mariner pub alongside exotic locations such as Baghdad and Thailand.
Owen describes Dead Centre, as "an exciting story that will have you on the edge of your seat and make you think again about many aspects of criminality that you have taken for granted."
"Is it a Religious Zealot or a Ruthless Businessman? Fast moving and extremely thought provoking!
This group is not totally heartless--just ruthless!! Do they get caught in the end--or do they get away with the entire scheme?" mikishope.com --This text refers to the paperback edition.

This group is not totally heartless--just ruthless!! Do they get caught in the end--or do they get away with the entire scheme?
An average read.
Well, he’s done it again in his latest offering ‘Dead Centre’.
Two ex-Special Ops soldiers decide to set up in business but follow a different tack than many others of their ilk. Instead of offering Executive Protection services, security consultancy or basic mercenary skills, these two come up with a completely unique ‘product’ that attracts equally original clients.
Jones tells the tale from the point of view of the ex-SAS men rather than the loose coalition of International Law Enforcement that sets out to curtail the success of their ‘product’ (sorry, NO SPOILERS here folks) and that in itself is also a refreshing change. Here you could say that the protagonists of the tale are the antagonists, yet a certain sympathy evolves toward them as we are allowed to see the reasoning behind the deadly service they provide.
The novel will expose the reader to a moral ambiguity that may be uncomfortable for many, but that should not put you off; Owen Jones handles the issue with impeccable taste and does not lose sight of the narrative in the process.
Definitely one to recommend to readers who enjoy the works of Andy McNab, Chris Ryan and Stephen Leather.
I marked the plot as Full of Surprises, because there were a number of times things did not happen as I thought were about to occur.
Mood: Dark. It is hard to mark Hopeful or Light-hearted, unless you are referring to all the drinking and eating these men are doing. Oh, to live that life again....
Pace: Fast. In truth, I'd say somewhere between Steady and Fast, but that is probably because I had a lot going on in my life and I was only able to put in 10 or 20 minutes of reading a night.
Characters: Developed. I could have gone with "One-dimensional", but there was more to these characters than just a name.
I had a good time reading this book. Yes, there are a few grammar errors in it. If this were a full priced book, I would have expected it to have gone to an editor before being published.
In the end, I felt like I read a book written by a friend.
I hope to read more from him, and I think others should pick up a copy of this to read for yourself. It is definitely a change of pace from the books I typically read.

Some spelling mistakes !!
Would have preferred extended sections to vary the story even more, not going straight into the next hit !!
Look forward to DC2 ?.
