When I heard that this very brief book was a memoir by one of the forensic investigators into the bombings in London, I thought that it might be an interesting read. While there have been libraries written about the September 11 attacks, the London terror attacks seem to have gone unexamined.

The problem with this book is a serious lack of depth. It is a personal memoir from Cliff Todd that covers a relatively short period of time, and gets so bogged down in the technical detail of bombs and explosives, almost to the point where it lacks any sense of a human connection to the events.

I guess I was expecting more storytelling, rather than a dry recitation. It is both a blessing and a curse that the book is so short, because it quite frankly bored me.

One for the truly interested in such matters.

I received a review copy from the publisher through NetGalley.
