"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.

Extremely disappointing and a waste of money.
Let's hope there is no follow up book by this author!
Heart racing, blood pressure elevated, palms sweaty, brain active and alert even though it was the middle of the night and I needed to put this book to down. Clearly, my body was having a physical response and emotional to this book depending on what the main character was going through.
I don't normally pick up mystery novels but I wanted to understand more about the London bombings. This book is so much more than just a mystery - it is part drama, part sex, part self-help, part history and facts. And it all comes together to make an intriguing story. It easy to become attached to the main character, the Detective Inspector. I was rooting for him, I wanted him to 'win', I learned so much from him. But, then he would really frustrate me with his Mommy-issues and substance abuse problems. I mean how can an intelligent, skilled, strong, manly-man like him, who is responsible for anti-terrorism, have so many female issues and substance abuse problems. You just want him to get his sh!t together in the evenings so he can kick some terrorist ass during the day. Soon, I realized that he was not weak, he just needs to escape from the day-to-day realities of his line of work. Things that a normal person wouldn't even know about, he sees, addresses, and resolves first-hand, often with minimal support and recognition.
I don't want to ruin the ending, but I was really pleased with how he handled things with the bloke at the end.
Finally, I am thrilled that I finally got to know the WHO and the WHY of the London bombings.
Go read this book people. You will enjoy it!
Even understanding that the story, based on fact, isn’t entirely true, it made for a good read.
