I would give it 2 and a half stars, but erred on the generous side.
Entertaining read, but very strange obvious errors about Britain make you read the whole book assuming the writer has not done his research. Obviously he has never been to Britain, but also did not do minimal research on the internet. He talks about Greenwich Mean Time and Dover time being different... There is only one time zone on the British Isles. They are serving horse meat pie in a pub... In the rest of Europe maybe, but in Britain it would be the equivalent of eating puppies, would suggest steak and kidney pie as an alternative. And there is no such thing as a Mackinaw (featured repeatedly) probably a Macintosh coat is intended. And scotch whisky is very appreciated in England.
(Living in Ireland btw. so not personally involved :-)

Really?? This got published? With an expanse of factual errors, immediately obvious to anyone that's ever been to the UK, along with extremely stereo typical Brits, who only seem to speak American English? I especially liked the amazing overvaluation of the French Franc, I would loved to have drunk out on 3 Francs in 1989 too!!!!!! Very poor indeed!

The Fire Theft grabs your attention on page one when a ferry boat sinks in the English Channel and never once lets up until a mystery involving an ancient archeological site and heroin smuggling is solved. The protaganist is Stephen Kaine, a gifted archeologist, and one of the best written characters you'll ever experience. Mark Graham writes with the best of them.
