I don't intending going back and reading any more of the Harry Jones series. I first came to Harry Jones with The Lord's Day which was a cracking thriller if not a little implausible. Michael became Lord Dobbs of Wylye in December 2010 after a long career in and around politics. The pace does not let up from then on as the adventures and near misses mount up. There is little left apart from his love for the headstrong Jemma, and now he must risk losing her and even his own life to uncover the truth about his dead father. This is the 6th in the Harry Jones series - not the best but still a great read.
