    2. This is one of those books where I seriously suggest you just go get yourself a copy instead of reading my review – the book is an amazing, up to date, enthralling read that had me riveted from start to finish.Myles Munro is a brilliant character, a highly intelligent misfit, expert analyst of military history and something of a maverick. He’s absolutely awesomely different! The knowledge and expertise of the author shines through in this superbly written, highly topical, action packed thril [...]

    3. This was a scary scenario! Why? Because it's SO relevant given the conflict and terrorism around the world. Pirate warlord Juma, and his half American wife Placidia are intent on bringing about the fall of America, in much the same way as the fall of the Roman Empire. They see many similarities between these two great powers. There are many theories as to what actually did cause the fall of Rome, from the plague, to the fact that they added lead to their food, which actually caused madness. Juma [...]

This has continued to be [...]

That's the reason I thoroughly enjoyed this book - it is one of those rare things: a compelling thriller that also makes you think.

Juma a Somali pirate and terrorist had a vital role to play in this book. his vicious nature coupled by his brill [...]

    17. This newest installment by Iain King in the Myles Munro series is better than the first!

This book also makes real the problems that refugees around the world face. This fast paced action thriller is highly recommended.

    25. Superb5 stars from me as I can't fault it in anyway! I just wish I could read quicker! This book had everything I like, action, conspiracy, suspense, twists and all the while making you think about how the world could be if this happened! As I've visited Rome where a large chunk of the book is set, allowed me to get a greater understanding of the scene, particularly the end. This helped build the suspense. A really enjoyable action packed read. I would love to see Iain produce novels on the Brit [...]

    26. Great book.Forget the housework, all I wanted to do was to curl up with this book in my spare time. I bought the second book in this series "The Secrets of the Last Nazi" first when it was offered as a kindle daily deal. First thing I did when I finished it was to order this book. Can't wait for more adventures for Myles and Helen!

    27.

With the clue that the US will fall for the same reason the Roman Empire did, Myles is soon on the track of a former love turned terrorist, Placidia, and her African warlord husband, Juma. Throw in a powerful US senator, his son who thwarts a bomb attack on Wall Street, poison, an [...]

    28. Very attractive plot. Well written. You learn something about Roman Empire and its end. I liked the book from its first till the last page. There are some flaws (Myles' border crossings, almost unbelievable or unrealistic survivals) but all in all it's better than the first Myles Munro book and I am looking forward to the third book.

    29. Another in the series, that was just as thrilling as the first book. I have to admit, some of the factual elements went over my head, but they were easily overshadowed by the 'current day' activities. I worked out the real villain of the piece quite early on but this did not detract in the slightest from the story line that had me absolutely hooked right from the start.
