's review


And The Wolf Shall Dwellis a great debut novel. Excellent development of the characters as the story progresses. This is a spy thriller that switches back and forth from past to present. Full of intrigue and suspense etc., that gets you hooked into the story - which is exactly what great fiction is supposed to do.

The story starts off with an old man colliding into John Daniel, knocking them both to the ground. Apologising profusely, the old man also mutters:

'The Queen......the Queen....,.where she is seated......they are all standing behind her............'

The old man rushes off again, only to throw himself in front of train. A man asks Daniel if the old man gave him anything, Daniel said no and was handed a card in case he thought of anything later.

The day before, Adam Grey, a retired Government agent, received a phone call that used a code from way back in the 80s. Grey after phoning the service, eventually managed to speak to Henry Haft. Haft told him that the service is rotten and needs to meet with Grey tomorrow to give him a dossier.

Grey receives a call from Finch telling him that Haft has jumped to his death in front of a train. Grey makes his way to the station and manages to speak to Daniel. The telephone number on the card that Inspector Moore gave to Daniel, rang to the service, but Finch told Grey that he had no idea who Moore was. Grey gave Daniel his mobile number and reassures him that he will find out whoever is responsible. Daniel told Grey what the old man had said to him, but Grey didn't know what it meant.

Daniel left, trying to decide whether to go to work or go home, he decided instead to walk back to Liverpool Street Station. Mulling over what the old man had said to him, Daniel retraces his steps and works out what the message was about. Daniel found a brown jiffy envelope stuffed behind the card stand that was under the portrait of the Queen.

Events have now been set in place. Grey and Daniel work together to unfold the plot. Do they manage to put a stop to the corruption and the potential disaster?

A very enjoyable read and hopefully we won't have to wait too long for Joni Dee to publish his next novel.
