I finished reading this book on Tuesday, now it’s Wednesday and I'm trying to write my review. This is going to be a hard review to write!
This book totally blew me away. It was amazing from start to finish! The plot flows from scene to scene with ease. Sam Popes past and present are all intricately woven together throughout this story. The Night Shift is extremely well written, it was clear to me Mr Enright has put a lot of time, love, energy and research into the details and events in this boo

Sam Pope was ex forces, now working in the archives of Scotland Yard. An unimposing man who was a bit of a loner. But he had a secret he worked the night shift. However, he forced to decide whether to break a promise or walk away.
Sam Pope was one of the most bad ass characters that I have read in a while. A man of action trained to be the best, who had a sense of justice. He kept himself to himself and was underestimated by many that he worked with. After a bombing at the London Marathon,

Someone has already mentioned that this book needed more editing. In my opinion it needed more research, or any, together with some police knowledge! It's based on the premise that the Detective Sergeant in charge of the Counter Terrorism Unit isn't just driven but corrupt and that he's got the wrong side of a Special Forces sniper who is employed as a filing clerk in the Met. A bit unlikely to say the least. I'm sorry Robert but the Met Counter Terrorism Command consists of 1,500 Detectives and ...more

An action filled roller coaster of a story! Lots of violence, bodily harm, blood, guts and gore. Which is not to everyone's taste but sometimes it's nice to see justice delivered in fiction as it sometimes isn't in real life. The characters are well drawn, the hero is damaged but still likeable, as are the secondary good guys while the “bad guys” are rotten to the core! I can easily see this as an action movie... If I have a reservation it's at the negative portrayal of the police officers since ...more

What a fast past action novel to read.
I fell in love with Sam Pope from page one. Forever being the soldier that services and protects. He just can’t help himself and then when the very system that is suppose to protect you turns out to be the very one that wants to kill you, what do you do? You become Sam Pope and survive.
Definitely, a must read if you want to lose yourself totally between the pages of a book. You cannot put down the book before it's finished.
Absolutely loved the book a

A great book let down by too many mistakes

This should have been a five star review about a story that was all action and really exciting to read. The main problem is the number of printing errors throughout the book which for me really spoilt it. If more time had been spent proof reading the story before releasing it this would most definitely be a five star review but as it is I can only give it four.

He suffered a life threatening injury while on the job so he returns to his family and takes a new job. Now he is happy but it won't last as an attack happens and he tries to find out what is going to happen. Follow him as he tries to find the person behind it

I loved it. It is exaggerated, violent and sad in many ways but it moves quickly, let's the good guys win, and introduces a wonderful hero. Wild ride.
