As you read about the person who seems to be the protagonist you think you are reading in the present, but as the book begins to tie things together near the end you realize you have been reading about him in the past. All in all it was very disjointed and in no way could I refer to it as a smooth read. And of course the author had to turn his hero into a dummy on occasions. His boss tells him to watch out that the bad guys are setting up a trap, but of course the hero becomes a dummy and say no they are not. I am fine. And of course he wasn't. But then if he had listened to his boss the author wouldn't be able to write his very disgusting torture scene. And if the hero hadn't been a dummy he would have figured out who the murderer was long before he did.
I started to quit but was just curious enough to skim most of the rest or the story. I started to give it one star but the writing and editing were decent so I upped it to a two. I'll not be reading more from this author.
The chronology (and locales) is all over the place; so it becomes bewildering.
Situations are described in detail, but the reasons behind the actions are not clarified until later - leaving the reader confused.
For most of the book there seems to be several unrelated and unexplained stories running concurrently.
The tale is sometimes rather drawn out with extraneous descriptions.
The tale is set in the UK, but reference is made to 'gas' for 'petrol'.

Alan McDermott is a very skilled writer and he's plots are well thought out. If you like suspense thrillers read Alan McDermott. Highly recommended.
Without giving away any spoilers I will just say that there is a twist that had me fooled and I didn't see coming and that made everything even more shocking for one character.
I really hope we see more of them in future stories because I really enjoyed this.
