Review - I won this e-book from LibraryThing members give-away in return for a review. The book stated this was a Bert Franks adventure, in fact this is the second "Bert Franks" story published September 2011. Just months after the first, Lost In The Land of Sheba published in March 2011.
It took me a chapter or two to get into the story, to get an understanding of who's who and how the characters fitted into the plot. Once I was au fait with the characters and plot the story really took off. Lots going on, much intrigue and a fast pace to keep the reader turning the pages. Great characterisations, some quite complex, particularly Julie Billeaud. The author shows a good knowledge of his setting in both geographical and political aspects which make the plot so real. As I read the story I could visualise the territory and imagine the situation. I would like to read the first book and will await for more Bert Franks adventures. 3*
