What makes Ford's novels so gripping is that there is little plot explained, rather it is driven through the characters – in the trade, it's called ‘Hard-Boiled'. Red Tide is the 4th in the ‘Corsoâ series but only feel you have to start at the beginning if you are feeling especially purist! This time itâs a terrorist plot using modified ‘Ebolaâ virus and the real potential of catastrophic loss of life – gripping stuff.

Reunited in custody with the frightened Meg, he must elude the SPD and pursue the terrorists himself before an infinitely more devastating attack annihilates his city ...
