This is a terrific thriller that really keeps you on your toes. We are introduced to our charismatic hero Solomon Creed as he runs barefoot and skimpily dressed from an air crash in Arizona. With memory loss but a burning knowledge that he must somehow save this small town, he stumbles upon a drug-related plot, a host of ‘baddies’ and a family mystery. It ends with a strange twist, that is improbable and intriguing and I am sure it will be developed in future volumes, for this starts a series. It is hugely enjoyable. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

One of our Books of the Year 2015.

If you like Simon Toyne you might also like to read books by Raymond Khoury, Eric Van Lustbader and Lee Child.

  • Teresa O’Halloran - 'I loved this book. A cracking read. I was gripped from page one.'
  • Janet Gilliard - 'I really enjoyed this novel - at last someone to rival Jack Reacher. This is a page-turner that you won't be able to put down. I really enjoyed this book.'
  • Jillian McFrederick - 'As the story progressed I did want to find out what happened and the climax was exciting, but I found the characters hard to follow.'
  • Phylippa Smithson - 'At last, Jack Reacher has some credible competition.  Solomon Creed is that challenger and what an engaging, exciting and ‘full on’ story he makes.'
  • Sarah Jones - 'The story hooked me in as an intriguing thriller... By the end I really wanted to know who or what had sent Solomon on his mission.'
  • Victoria Goldman - 'Solomon Creed is a modern-day Wild West thriller. It gripped me from the first chapter and captured my attention all the way through. Solomon Creed is certainly a character to remember.'
  • Carolyn Huckfield - 'For anyone who likes a modern, intriguing and violent story this is a great read. However it is the underlying mystery that will keep me reading more. Can’t wait for the next one!'
  • Celia Cohen - 'Wow. An electrifying roller-coaster of a book. This is a must read. Everything was put on hold, I simply had to finish it. A mixture of Lee Child and Stephen King yes but unique in it's own right.'
  • Joy Bosworth - 'This story is certainly different – it’s opening paragraph hooks you in and the descriptions make you feel you are there.'
  • Emily Griffiths-Hall - 'I felt the book is well written and the use of the language is very detailed. However the only thing I had a small problem with is how each chapter begins - there is no clarification as to which character the chapter refers to.'
  • Sarah Musk - 'This is an absolutely cracking supernatural thriller set in Arizona...I have rarely read a book with so many elements contained within it.  It is exciting and intriguing from the first page'
  • Cathy Small - 'This book has more twists and turns than you would expect...and it all comes together at the end in spectacular style.'
  • Ian Harvey-Brown - 'A great summer's read is to be had from this juggernaut of a thriller that moves relentlessly forward right from page one.'
  • Sarah Harper - 'An addictive, suspenseful and thoroughly enjoyable read providing just enough information to keep the reader guessing and wanting to know more.'
  • Michelle Hodson - 'Fast paced, entertaining plot.  Solomon Creed is a hero with a supernatural twist. This book had me hooked from the very start.'
  • Jacki Moorcroft - 'WOW! Great characters and story line. Kept me hooked right to the end.'
