"Astoundingly accomplished and pacey. Real-life police experience and know-how shine through on every page without it ever slowing the pace of the drama. The scenario he paints is a vivid and realistic one. Possibly too realistic!" Editor at Hodder & Stoughton
"A very exciting proposition indeed. The concept behind this book will make headlines." Editor at Hachette
"Subtle conspiracy, professionally written, credible and above all - intriguing. The desire to find out the truth will drive interest alone. Incredibly strong stuff." Editor at Harper Collins
"I adored the lead character, DI Jake Flannagan. He is one of a kind. I would class this novel in the same arena as the blockbusting best seller 'Bravo Two Zero' by Andy McNab - but for the fact that 'The Theseus Paradox' is far better written!" Editor at Penguin
"We're into the action immediately and there's a great sense of authenticity and control in David's storytelling. The plot revelations in this book are all too possible. The whole tale is just far too chillingly credible!" Agent at one of the UK's big five literary agencies
"Finished this at 6.00am this morning having thoroughly enjoyed it! Eloquent and adeptly argued, with an utterly thrilling conclusion. It leaves the reader hungry to research whether they believe this version of events!" Former Mail-on-Sunday journalist
"An explosive finale with dialogue that has that rare ring of authenticity to it. Brilliant stuff that smacks you in the face!" Editor at one of the world's top three news agencies--Editor reviews
The Theseus Paradox is an expertly written crime novel. Videcette has done justice to a very sensitive subject...The Theseus Paradox is a wonderfully written story. I was not expecting what Jake uncovered during his investigation and this is what made me love the book even more! I gave The Theseus Paradox 5 Stars on Goodreads as it was a unique read for me and they don't come around very often! --Bibliophile Book Club
From the Author
I went out to work on 7 July 2005, and came home two weeks later wearing the same clothes and with fifty-six people dead.

David Videcette, you have created a true-to-life character in an exciting thriller, capturing the situation regarding the 2005 bombings so well we can easily imagine the events happening the way the author describes them. Jake is such a great character you simultaneously love and hate him. He demands that his team be fully focused on the job and yet he is not! He is in need of a wake-up call to realise how self-destructive his behaviour is but, then again, he is an excellent detective with all the right instincts. It is confusing, exhilarating and sometimes downright irritating when Jake again gives in to the lure of alcohol or lust. The novel is well-written and the short chapters are in line with the urgency of Jake’s mission as well as the pace of the novel. A remarkable thriller providing us with insights into Police procedure and how the different branches of the Police sometimes have difficulty cooperating! The Theseus Paradox is simply a cracker of a thriller!
7/7 & the bombs in London, a Leeds connection, terrorism & his theory.
Jake can be a hero & can undo that instantly, but with all that's going on, it's a hard slog!
Great fast story, with life alongside the hectic life in the police force. But you have to decide what's true or what's made up!
Small chapters to let u breathe! Like the facts at the end as well, pieces to put together. A great read
This book looks into this dark world where the frustration of investigators can lead to results with dire consequences. It does however, give you a sense of how difficult it is to maintain focus on extremely unstable people who are hell bent on forcing their agendas onto others regardless of the consequences.
I'm sure that once you start reading you will want to continue.
