Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of the best of its kind, an exciting quest thriller with a diving expert and underwater photographer as its hero, so lots of interesting detail in its non-stop action plot. Highly recommended.

Comparison: Clive Cussler, Gordon Kent, Dale Brown.
Similar this month: Vince Flynn, Duncan Falconer.

If you like Patrick Woodrow you might also like to read books by Gordon Kent, Dale Brown and Andy Mcnab.

Synopsis

Double Cross by Patrick Woodrow

When Ed Strachan's parents were killed in a horrific car crash eighteen years ago, they left their son a miserly inheritance: the memory of a mangled nursery rhyme and a cufflink inscribed with a single set of coordinates. But eighteen years later when a beautiful girl tries to poison Ed and steal the cufflink he guesses it may have greater significance than he had imagined. Christine Molyneux is just the first of many who will stop at nothing to get hold of it. Ed is soon prime suspect in a complicated homicide and immersed in a mystery that goes back way before his parent's death. It is a mystery that lies hidden off a coral island in the South China Sea; that has already cost thousands of lives and that will cost many more before it sees the light of day again. Fans of Clive Cussler will love Double Cross: a breathtaking mixture of mystery, action and undersea adventure.

Reviews

'Double Cross moves at double time, twisting like a sidewinder and kicking like a mule. Woodrow plots like Dan Brown and sets locations like Clive Cussler, but his characterisation is superior to either - a refreshingly imperfect hero, a femme more feisty than fatale, and a supporting cast expertly rendered in shades of light and dark. For a debut thriller - come to think of it, for a thriller full stop - Double Cross is exceptionally accomplished. If this is the first you've heard of Patrick Woodrow, rest assured it won't be the last.' - Boris Starling, bestselling author of Messiah.'
