Praise for Adrian Magson’s writing:

The Harry Tate spy series

“With high-octane action, steadily building tension, and a plot packed with twists, Magson’s second Harry Tate novel suggests the best of Ken Follett or Robert Ludlum but with a touch more substance.” Booklist (American Library Association)
