Smashwords book reviews by Michael Carmel

  • The Arch Deceiver on March 10, 2015

    This engrossing story about a multi-ethnic team of intelligence agents tracking down an equally diverse group of insurgents, gangsters and war criminals is a great read. I especially enjoyed the unique, often colourful, characters and how each contributes to the plot. The comprehensive, vivid descriptions of the book’s many locales are also impressive. Webb’s first work of fiction is a winner. I give it a five star rating.
