• Great Holiday Reads – The Final Reckoning by Sam Bourne

    Date: 2010.09.23 | Category: Book reviews, Holiday reading | Tags: ,,

    Described by the Daily Express as ‘compulsive reading’ and as ‘gripping’ by the Guardian, this Sam Bourne novel had a lot to live up to before I had even started reading.  However it doesn’t fail to deliver in another fast paced book full of intrigue, twists and turns, mixing real events in to a great story line.

    Set in the modern day Tome Byrne, a former idealist United Nations lawyer, is asked to help out the UN in placating the family of a harmless old man accidentally shot by security staff. However, there is more to this old man than you would expect including membership of a secret brotherhood responsible for unexplained deaths across the World.  As Tom tries to get to unlock the secrets he is pursued by those prepared to kill to keep the secrets safe.

    This was an enjoyable read mixed with sadness over the real World War II events that underpinned the story.
