This is a powerhouse of a read, it will tempt and cajole you into reading faster and faster, the last page will whisper seductively to you but hold on firmly to your horses and enjoy the wild ride.

This, the fourth in the Joona Linna series is hang on to the edge of your seat stuff and an absolute knockout.
