Absolutely brilliant. This is Tim Heath's best novel to date and shows how much he is growing as an author. His use of English is excellent and there are no typos, misspells or missing words, so it's really easy to read. The story is a sort of continuation of a previous novel, The Prophet, but you don't need to have read it first as The Shadow Man further develops the plot and one of the characters introduced there. Tim has reached new heights for me, as he made me develop a real empathy for the main two characters and I became really involved, even though they were both really nasty people - that shows how good his characterisation is. The story moves along at a great pace and I found it really difficult to put down. This is a fantastic, well-paced, engrossing novel and if you like thriller/espionage stories that will leave you feeling engaged, then do not miss this story.This journey into the life of a somewhat minor character from The Last Prophet opens up a whole world of intrigue, tyranny, love and sacrifice. Building to a strong finale, matching personal desperation against government and agency plots, the story fizzles with angst and thrills, all the while setting the scene for more to come. Looking forward to seeing Gudu in action again!
