The writing exhibits a good "insiders feel" for policing and counter-terrorism. It is enjoyably tense if one sets aside much of the main character's "chip on the shoulder." In a world of compromise and shadows, the finale (or finales - there is the public and the personal) is appropriate (can't say more, as any hint may spoil it).

A very good thriller, gripping from page 1 till the end. Fight against Terrorism by the English Sleuths to prevent terrorist attacks and how counter-terrorism units work.
