Thoughts on Warlord

Finished it yesterday and have been trying to write a blurb for it since then. Lets just say that I'm sure some people will be offended by this book because it does detail two actual deaths, one was murder the other a tragic papparazzi-fueled accident and there's several acts of vandalism and arson. Bell has blended fact with fiction, even fictionalising people like HRH and the Queen. This book is big over 500 pages - it won't feel like that when you're reading it. To me it felt real and it's a scary picture that Bell paints. All I can say is that the next writer to take over the James Bond franchise - if it isn't Bell - had better pull their socks up. Alex Hawke could take James Bond with one hand tied behind his back.
