Thoroughly enjoyable, a good thriller with humour and heart.
8 July 2000 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Forsyth gives us a tried and tested format of the good agent going off the rails, then twists it into a personal rescue mission for chief spy man Sam McCready. A Classic race against time thriller, with excellent acting, a touch of wry humour here and there, and an unexpected twist at the end. Thoroughly enjoyable. A pity we did not get to see more of the inimitable Sam McCready after the run of 'F.F. Presents' finished.
