Very direct and no holds barred insight into a troubled mans journey from self-destruction to leader.

While much is focused on Ant and his perspectives on leadership a time more could have learnt from his acknowledging many others, not just positive people in his life, who were the making of this leader.

Critical though is the importance if self reflection through which everyone can learn and grow.

An enjoyable book

A story that pulls your senses hard & viscerally.

Following a similar yet enjoyable pattern, this makes for an excellent novel in this genre. Details demonstrate Frank Gardners knowledge base very well.

Excellent continuation of the Gabriel Wolfe story.

Excellently constructed storyline holding the pace & drama perfectly to the end.

Characters plausible while Mark's luck seems too much, but hey works out with extended scenes of high drama.

Seemingly limitless deceit underpins the battle between good & evil played out in a journey around the continents.

A sharper focus needed

Really love the 'Victor' stories but this one not only started very slow but seemed to drift quite a lot.

Shame it had to be this way, but overall loyalty to the 'Victor' character means happy to wait for the next installment.

Ended too soon - mainly due to being such a gripping storyline. Tough is an understatement!

Second installment: Visceral and compelling story.

Compelling and addictive story shedding insights into many key characters. The telling of a life guided by founding experiences honed over time and underpinned by core values with a form of moral code. Well written, yet some narration somewhat wooden.
