Review:
Originally published 1992 and itís easy to see why this book has been republished this year, since it is set at the time of the Olympic Games in London. Alongside the story of a young Scottish medal contender Cliff Rennie has added a tale of international smugglers and death threats, adding even more excitement. When my son saw me reading this book he immediately recounted the plot of one of the authorís other books Offside in Ecuatina which he received about 20 years ago as a Sunday School prize. I think thatís a pretty good recommendation for any writer!
