I’ve just finished reading Michael Saint’s third book and what a cracking thriller it is.
It pulls no punches with action across the globe reminiscent of a supercharged James Bond film. The story commences in the Arabian desert with the night time murder of two wealthy travellers, ending many years later with another deadly desert skirmish.
It reminds me of a thrilling roller coaster when you tighten your seatbelt sit back and enjoy the ride. So join Richard Neilson as he strives to seek out and terminate those responsible for his father’s ghastly execution.
