    Fast-moving thriller

    While not up to - yet - the standard of Downing's Second World War thrillers, this first entry in a new series makes for easy reading. Set against the backdrop of the impending First World War, it races from China to the United States to Mexico to Ireland and England. McColl is an interesting lead character, possessing idealism and cynicism in equal measures. It will be interesting to see how he progresses in future adventures.
