Review quote

"Impossible to put down" Sunday Telegraph "Gripping tale" Independent on Sunday "An exciting and ambitious story ... Behind the fast-moving adventure and the gadgets and gizmos of the 21st century, however, lies a moral tale which successfully raises important issues about conscience, society and human behaviour" TES "Gets off to an exciting start and the tension never lets up" Newcastle upon Tyne Evening Chronicle
