    ‘Loose Ends’ is a high octane, pacey action thriller that’s crashes its way through the more sordid parts of London. Fights, shootings, car chases and brutal killings, follow Oliver Hurst’s intriguing blind antihero; Matthew Bartimaeus ‘s 48 hour journey of revenge and retribution. Whose conflicted moral compass , swinging erratically as an iron one at the North Pole, chases his prey down. Cold and unyielding, Bartimaeus, does however, possess seeds of redemption within his character. The action is fast moving, the writing punchy and the dialogue sharp and snappy. Bartimaeus’s character requires more depth and history, but I’m sure we will see this in future novels, when , hopefully, he is operating on the right side of the law. All said a very worthy debut novel.
