I must admit to being biased in this review as its written by my brother and I spent quite a lot of time reading it before it was published!  The reviews on Amazon say it all, its a great fast packed read, a really brilliant , funny baddy meets his just deserts, and the hero Jon Hunt is great.  Only thing I didnt like was when they shot the dog…….

The Falklands war took place inconveniently when I was due to be married and Larry missed the cermony. He nobly said go ahead anyway!  I can’t believe its thirty years ago, it makes me realise how when I was a child, the Second world war  was still so close to my Mum in the 1960s.

We’d watched the QE2 sail down the Solent, but had little idea really of what was going on.  News reporting was quite different then with the lack of  digital technology that we have today.  I can still remember news reports that such and such a ship begining with the letter A or so has been hit/sunk, must have been a nightmare for the families- compare that to the coverage coming out of Syria today.  Larry spoke on his return of nearly being shot down by an Exocet, which has taken all this time to make its way into the book!  He’s also blogging his was experiences  from  his Flight log book. We seem to be becoming a literay  dynasty
