To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I enjoyed the stories and characters but the author spoils the stories by padding them out with very very boring stories about Bridge card games in minute detail that are completely irrelevant to the main plots and of no real interest to the reader unless you happen to be Omar Shariff. I soon ended up skipping these sections completely as they were not important at all. It was quite annoying. Also there should have been an warning that they are quite old and quite dated with mentions of dual up modems as the latest in high tech. But I did enjoy the series despite these anachronisms.
I really enjoyed these books. The plots where original and very well developed. The characters are perfectly drawn. I love Nick Shannon and all of his team. I was so sorry when I finished the set and I hope that the author will write more in this series.
Downloaded the box set to accompany me on holiday. A thoroughly good series in all. Well written and had me not wanting to put it down. Each chapter ending had you wanting to move on to see what was next. Excellent characters , well thought out.
An author not known to me before I started on this series but one I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a story that makes you sit and think. The story lines are brilliant and complex but so enthralling .
