The Set Up

This is packed with fights, shootings, killers, dodgy Russians and the odd cute cop...in Byrne he has created a new fictional powerhouse...the plot is tightly written, financially plausible to those of us whose knowledge of this murky world is restricted to our monthly overdraft charges and a complete page-turner. Great read, great new hero, great effort Mr Riley.
