Interesting in its way but with one tiny flaw. When I worked in the civil service occasionally I'd come across security experts with a police background. Two classics were one who didn't trust software encryption he wanted something with real cogs and another who didn't realise that destroying a hard drive didn't mean all the copies of the files were destroyed.

At the very highest level of security the important thing was key control for encrypting and decrypting data. We would fly a person to physically carry the keys. Interestingly enough once the data was encrypted we didn't care too much about what happened to it. We would quite happily send it over the internet even though we knew that thirty percent of the servers it would go through were not security patched to the latest standard. So splicing into an underwater cable would not in my opinion compromise the data.

Otherwise an interesting book.

Mr. Lindsay is a very talented story teller. I enjoyed the Ben Hood character and will read more in this series.

If you want a light fun detective story with a classic "cop in trouble" protagonist, then this one's for you! It's fun, a bit corny at times like most of this genre, but has a decent story line. I read this one as a break from my last read, which was more serious and darker subject matter ( a realistic war theme).

A fun read that I enjoyed. Some reviewers had criticism of the English and sentence structure etc., I suggest you overlook this, relax and escape into the world of Ben Hood for a few hours.

A great read dragged down by a lack of editing. The main character is engaging and the plot is believable. I recommend it if you can ignore or skip over the errors.

"Aussiematt" is correct that the editing is bad. I hope Mr. Lindsay will take the criticism positively and endeavor to improve the spelling, word usage, sentence structure etc.
Now the positives; pacing is good, characters are well developed and the descriptions are good. I liked the lead in giving information about Ben. If he is going to be the main character in a series I want to know his background history and who he is mentally and emotionally. Yes, that takes time and delays getting into the action of the main storyline; but I like it.
Overall I think the author is a great storyteller. Now he needs to improve his writing technique so readers aren't distracted by his mistakes. I believe Mr. Lindsay will then have the opportunity to be a popular author.
