Reviews

'Action and scalpel-sharp suspense' - Daily Telegraph on THE BIRTHDAY GIRL 'Exciting stuff with plenty of heart-palpitating action gingered up by mystery and intrigue ... Leather is an intelligent thriller writer' - Daily Mail on THE TUNNEL RATS 'This book should be compulsory reading' - Aberdeen Evening Express on THE SOLITARY MAN 'Stephen Leather should be nestling in your bookshelves alongside Frederick Forsyth and Jack Higgins' - Daily Mail 'This is as hi-tech and as world-class as the thriller genre gets.' - Express on Sunday on THE BOMBMAKER 'Excitement is guaranteed' - Independent on THE FIREMAN

Tessa Chudy on
 
An innocent but dangerous man escapes his homeland after being imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. But even in Hong Kong he isn't free. Tracked down and coerced by the IRA into helping break a soldier out of prison. Nothing however is quite as simple as it seems. Plenty of convolutions and its really rather compelling.
