Another excellent review of the Fourth Reich.
"The Fourth Reich – Head of the Snake will be enjoyed by anyone who likes conspiracy theories and books by the likes of Dan Brown. Gary Compton has a much more action packed style though and if I have any gripe at all it is that nothing is left to the imagination, you get a full blow-by-blow account of the story from every angle. Personally I would have liked more mystery, I prefer being kept in the dark as to what is going on. The storytelling is clear, even though you get to see it all from so many points of view.
Story-wise, it will come as no surprise (because of the title) that this is about the return of Nazi forces trying to drive the world into chaos and take over. There is a large supernatural element, with the main character being somewhat psychic. It also slips into horror in places, with some quite graphic scenes reminiscent of Shaun Hutson’s novels. The main character is a likeable grumpy copper, and comes across well.
All in all, an enjoyable read that leaves you wanting to read more. The only reason I won’t give this five stars is that I would like more mystery and tension instead of knowing exactly what is happening, why and who by all the time."
