Amazon reviews of ARTICLE 109:
5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable, 28 Dec 2012 By "Eastlife"
This modern-day legal thriller was a surprise page-turner. Set inHong Kong, the ever-thriving financial hub of Asia, its clever plot and suspenseful storyline is sure to keep you hooked. I liked the well-compartmentalised structure of chapters, which made it easy for me to follow through. I would recommend this book if you like crime fiction with a contemporary twist.
5.0 out of 5 stars Article 109, 1 Jan 2013 By "Sophie":
An exciting and well crafted novel. The division of the book into relatively short chapters racks up the continuing suspense as each chapter ends on a tantalising note with the reader wanting more. The absence of any major sub-plots concentrates the reader's attention on the main gripping story. The detailed description of locations and events enables the reader to visualise the action as it takes place, especially for those who knowHong Kongwell. The author certainly knows his stuff! The nail-biting climax certainly parallels the best of time honoured crime fiction.
