The Lost Relic

I was so chuffed when I spotted this at the library.  And my excitement was not displaced.  This is a gripping next instalment in the Ben Hope trilogy, this time involving art thieves and much excitement.  Well, the much excitement is pretty well a given in these books.  Also, a brilliant side plot (but not resolved!), involving Ben's ongoing relationship with his girlfriend and issues therein.

Well written, gripping, and they feel authentic too (in spite of the fact that, as far as I can see, the author has no real experience in the military...  Do correct me if that's wrong). 

I'm not quite sure what else to say.  It's worth keeping an eye out for certainly, and I'll probably get myself a copy as soon as I see it second hand (this is nothing against the book, I'm a student--there are only a handful of books I'd buy new as soon as they come out).  Also, space limitations at home mean this is probably a pretty good indication.  I'm not sure where I'd fit it if I got a copy...  I'm sure I'll manage somehow.  I'm going to have a college and a home collection of books I think.  Being a fast reader, who enjoys rereading, has disadvantages.

To conclude: read it!
