Tweed and his dynamic team face one of their biggest challenges yet. Not even the most sophisticated security systems nor the most experienced counter-terrorist czars can stand up to a force that threatens the whole of Europe. Tweed rarely experiences fear or doubt, but is almost overwhelmed when he has to make a seemingly impossible decision about one of his own team. Loy ...more

An enjoyable enough story but not up to the standards of previous Tweed & Co novels. Whilst to some extent the Tweed & Co stories have always been a tad formulaic (at least you know what to expect) this just felt like a repeat of several other plots and very little in the way of activities that SIS would traditionally get involved in.
We had another attempt by ‘not nice’ politicians to merge security services into an umbrella organisation that has more in common with the old KGB that Br

This will be the last of the series I read. I know they have always been outdated but the lack of use of technology by the characters plus the same plodding storylines has become tooooooo far outdated.

I read this book.. one or two years ago, my mom gave it to me when I had absolutely nothing to read.. my bookshelf was empty and I needed something to read, and I ended up reading "Blood Storm" by Colin Forbes. Actually, at first she gave me a thriller of Nora Roberts, but I never really got into it, and I like this book much better. I never really read that much thrillers, except maybe some YA thrillers, but this one I liked. Very much.
"Blood Storm", the original title is so much better, I re

I really should make this comment about all the Colin Forbes books I have read (and I am pretty sure I have read them all). All are very easy to read but the plot is far fetched and every book has the word diabolical used a diabolical number of times. And every second one has a blonde girl wearing a green dress with gold belt and another with a blue dress and pussy bow. Mark my words. Read them all and prove me wrong :)

I have recently gotten into reading Colin Forbes books this being by second, I wish to continue reading more in the future. This book is about Tweed and his team, they work for the SIS. The plot was very well structured and fit well together which all the loose ends joining together at the end. I cannot say how pleased and exhilarated I am with this novel a pure legend, Colin Forbes.

Easy to read, but a very flat story line. I know Forbes/Sawkins only wrote another two books before he died, yet recently they've lacked the vigour and foreign-based intrigue of previous novels. Tweed and his team are now simply coppers with guns who have an awful lot of luck, and whose basic and dated trade-craft is never outdone.

Well i am a die hard Colin Forbes or should i say Tweed(the central character) and team fan. Any review i write would be biased since i naturally enjoy any Tweed book and have tried to hunt down and read each and every one available...

It was sort of ok, though not one of his better ones - every Colin Forbes book makes me smile, I know they are far fetched, and the writing isn't brilliant either but somehow they keep me reading to the end, so they must have something!! For all their cheesiness they are addictive.

Got about 5 chapters through when i suddenly realised that i've read it before!

It still kept me entertained and despite my previous read i still couldn't figure out the ending.

It reads like the script for a low-budget, direct-to-video movie. Starring Van Damme, most likely. Waste of time and paper.
