The Shattered Eagle - Colin Payne

The Shattered Eagle by Colin PayneA bracing British Police Crime Thriller with twists that make it much, much more than you would expect. (I don't want to give away ANY of the plot).

The book is a brilliant 'page turner' an 'explosive' story. There are some essential slowdowns in the beginning, but the laying out of the plot is essential to the flow of the book later. You have to know the characters to understand what happens to them and what does happen is amazing. The way the plot weaves together makes for a bumper ride of a suspense thriller and the reader is held spellbound right up to the last page. It is not your normal run-of-the-mill crime thriller. You will enjoy it immensely.

The author apologizes for some of the language, but realistically these days, the language isn't so far removed from the norm that most of us would consider it to be out of place. I would definitely follow this author in future and purchase others of his books. He has a great writing style and and with a bit more polish to the editing he would definitely see off the few critics I have seen.

I write Space Opera SF and books that encourage the idea that a future world with AI is not necessarily a bleak place.
