"Light the blue touch paper and retire to a comfortable chair."

“Victoria Cross” has been used as a writer’s pseudonym before, but has there ever been a thriller by a winner of one of the two highest awards for courage? There certainly can’t have been a better first one — duff title aside — than this terrific start to a new series by Kim Hughes, who won the George Cross for bomb disposal in Afghanistan.... It remains to be seen how versatile a hero can be who specialises in bomb disposal but the writing here thoughtfully fuses Hughes’s real-world expertise with the heightened scenarios of adventure stories. Light the blue touch paper and retire to a comfortable chair.
