    1. “The Siege” eBook was published in 2016 and was written by Charlie Flowers. Mr. Flowers has published over half a dozen novels. I received a galley of this novel for review through netgalley. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence. Most of this Thriller novel is set in London of 1980. The primary character is former SAS officer Captain David Mahoney who now works for Intelligence Corps. A unit of the Democratic Revolutionary Front for the Liberation of Khuz [...]

    2. "The devil is in the detail"I admire writers who can keep my interest when all around me I see words and pictures I don't understand. The detailed research required to produce a fictionalised account of the 1980 Iranian Embassy Siege must be staggering. I've read several books by Charlie Flowers; this one is different.Just as good, but different. At no time was I tempted to skip the minute analysis of every piece of kit, every character, every second of the action. It all rings true. Every word. [...]

    3. A gripping read. I could tell straight away in the first few pages that Charlie Flowers has a talent for writing Action Thrillers. The Author has done a great job in building this story from the beginning, right through to the main action. I like that Saddam Hussein is the bad guy in this, ordering the destruction of the Iranian embassy in London. Then the SAS being used to go in after the terrorists. The action scenes are great, and this is well put together book. Well worth reading.

    4. In “The Seige” Charlie Flowers skillfully unwinds a tale of “no-holds-barred” action and with a unique twist of irreverence and humor. Captain David Mahoney is a British intelligence officer working to foil the activies of terrorists lead by, of all people Saddam Hussein. While plans are laid to seize and destroy the Iranian Embassy in London, Mahoney is working to foil the entire plot. Mahoney has placed a man, Tariq, inside the cabal of terrorists. As the plot unfolds we are introduced [...]
