This is the third book in the series and is just as superb as the earlier two! The Bird of Prey being sought by Ayesha Ryder in this story is the Maltese Falcon. The story involves solving historic clues, the attempted assassination of a prime minister, murder, archaeology, ancient weapons – including cannons and bows and arrows, parliamentary malpractice, MPs, students, a special family member, new friends, lots of intrigue and twists and turns.
Brilliantly written, with a strong, resourceful and highly intelligent female lead, the story takes the reader on a whirlwind adventure involving many relatively current real occurrences woven into the fabric if the novel making you question what is fact and what is fiction. Superb, scintillating and stupendous – or to put it more plainly, simply brilliant. This is a book I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who enjoys great writing with historical and current affairs entwined in a fast paced, all action mystery thriller.
Whilst it isn’t essential to have read the earlier books in this series to fully appreciate this one, they are all great books so I really recommend you to read them all. I eagerly await the publication of sequels to this as the story continues. This is one of those all action books that you really wish someone would make into a film – they’d be brilliant!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
