Review by: Sue Dwan on March 06, 2014 :
I so enjoyed this story. Once I started it I found it difficult to tear myself away, as the story crackles along at a good clip. I couldn't read it fast enough. I liked the characters, the marvellous dog, the informative details about the high country and the slow build up of tension as the story developed. Highly recommended. I look forward to reading the next book.

Review by: Michael Anderson on Dec. 15, 2013 :
As a Secondary School English teacher I was hugely impressed with this book's potential as a class set for boys and girls ages 11-14. It's a rattling good yarn, fast-paced and with interesting characters, including the wonderful dog!
It's geographic location would appeal to all, as would its timely topic of terrorist activities within seemingly safe societies.
The characters are well developed and Hubrick avoids the cliches often associated with young protagonists. The females give as good as they get in this novel.
The book lends itself to many great classroom activities-mapping, news stories for TV/Radio/Print media, research etc etc
Highly recommended.
