“If you hanker for fast-moving adventure novels reminiscent of the golden era of Desmond Bagley and Hammond Innes, look no further: with these two kinetic novels by Martin Granger, the uncomplicated excitements of an earlier age are enthusiastically conjured, but given a modern-day twist. Both books have the kind of cinematic vividness we might expect from a writer who has been making documentary films for thirty years, and the orchestration of tension is sure-footed. If the moral complexity of Gerald Seymour in such territory not in evidence, it matters not a whit — clearly, Mr Granger is a name to watch.”
