      The author was born in the US, educated in Britain and served in the Black Watch and the Queens’ Own Highlanders. His colourful CV includes clearing landmines around the world and winning the Crime Writers’ Association’s Steel Dagger for A Loyal Spy.In his latest thriller, Rock Creek Park, he seems to have used much of his service experience to create a pulsating story that flies around the world in the dangerous company of two protagonists – Washington detective Michael Freeman and a fo [...]

      Imagine a world where James Ellroy has penned a secret eighth season of the West Wing but the Pentagon has banned it because it cuts too close to the bone on military technology. That world might not exist, but you can get a taste of it by reading Simon Conway's new novel Rock Creek Park.Conway offers us a fast-paced murder investigation; genetic manipulation of bonobos, baboons and humans to create dominant soldiers; murky dealings between Senators, private security companies and lobbyists; and [...]

      My goodness. This book is excellent for insomniat for curing it, but for causing it! I literally could not put it down and ended up losing a lot of sleep, but happily so. The story was thoroughly engaging, characters were well thought out, detail was amazing just sucked me in and would not let go. Ever read a "mystery" and have the end figured out by the first chapter? Well, that is definitely not the case here. If I say the twists and turns in the story line are "bizarre," I certainly don't mea [...]

      Contrary to some of the other reviews, I preferred the Abkhazia bits. Maybe I just find the Caucasus more interesting than Washington. Not a place I know anything about, but the picture painted of a ravaged barely-holding-it-together nation really struck me. I like wild, savage places where it seems anything could happen, even the extremely weird-slash-terrifying shit posited by the book, and if they happen to be part of the former Roman Empire, all the better! Plus I'm never really going to enj [...]

      Rock Creek Park reminds me of Quentin Tarantino’s 1996 movie From Dusk till Dawn, as it suddenly changes dramatically in character. It is as if there are two different books glued together, the second perhaps more of sketch than a fully developed book. Rock Creek Parkstarts out as a carefully paced, straight-laced police procedural and ends up as a furious, disjointed action story. It is a shame, for I really enjoyed the first part.

      An excellent political thriller with a welcome science twist mostly set in a frozen Washington DC. Towards the end action moves to the Caucasus for an adrenalin-packed punch which, although edge-of-seat exciting, is, in my opinion, less satisfying and more fantastical than the very smart and gripping Washington section.

      A well written novel with an odd and somewhat disturbing storyline. I am unsure if this a standalone novel or part if a series because I felt that I should have known more about Harry than I actually learned from this book. I don't feel an overwhelming urge to read other books by the author.

    9. Chris on said:

      Gripping tense thriller until the cat is let out of the bag. It then becomes yet another shoot 'em up fight to the end, which I found predictably disappointing. Overall, though, a well-written, atmospheric novel, which is an exciting page-turner.

      Odd combo of murder mystery international intrigue and genetic science badness but really good.
