If you want to pick up Bannerman’s Ghosts, I can tell you where. If you go to the Raleigh-Durham airport, go to the food court in the terminal and take a right. The bookstore is on your right. It is, as far as I know, the only used bookstore in a major American airport (or it least it was when I wrote this review, ten years ago). It is filled with airport novels, the sort of books that are good to have on long-haul airplane flights and nowhere else. The inventory could easily have been cobbled t ...more

After I bought this book for my Kindle I quickly discovered that I had read it before. As a matter of fact, the paperback was sitting safely in my basement.

I was not too concerned as I had enjoyed it the first time round and I reckoned it would be like re-visitng an old friend.

Not so, knowing how the story plays out eliminates all suspense which is a key ingredient for the enjoyment of this type of novel.

Still I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fast moving thriller with interesting character

I liked the dialogue and the relationships but it wasn't the pageturner/thriller it claimed to be. Maybe that's because I didn't fully understand it... I hadn't read the other books in the series and I didn't know it was even in a series until I had already started it. Oh well.

Good; man developing and testing bio-weapons attempts to find former spy who would be insurance against one of his foes and her former lover; main character from Haven, might be in better context if I had read the earlier Bannerman books.

I am very interested in the topic of bio war. Enjoyed the plot and characters as well. Maxim always keeps me in suspense.

I like John Maxim, but to read the Bannerman books you need to start with the first one.
