The author specialises in books like this where the forces of law and order are faced with an imminent threat and the story follows their efforts at break-neck speed. It’s a topical scenario with a deadline given that a catastrophic terrorist attack will hit London if demands are not met by 8pm. Smaller attacks earlier in the day confirm that the perpetrators are serious. Islamic extremists are obvious suspects but the plot turns out to be more complex. Bodies pile up and characters make stupid decisions that get them into dangerous situations. It’s a very macho book: even DS Tina Boyd, the only prominent female character, is gung-ho in her approach to policing punching and shooting her way out of trouble.
This is not subtle literature but it certainly holds ones attention. Of its genre this is a good example. I’d say that the authors previous book, Siege, involving some of the same characters, is an even better book.
The narrator’s delivery-style adds to the sense of urgency and danger.
