Critic Reviews

''As long as meticulous craftsmanship and honest entertainment are valued, and as long as action, authenticity, and expertise still make up the strong framework of the good adventure/thriller, Desmond Bagley's books will surely be read.'' (Reginald Hill, Twentieth Century Crime and Mystery Writers)
''Bagley is a master storyteller.'' (Daily Mirror)
''Mr Bagley has no equal at this sort of thing.'' (Sunday Mirror)
''Bagley is one of the best.'' (The Times)

Classic thriller

Readers who enjoy military strategy, extreme weather survival, and heroes scrambling around in rough terrain and turning the tables on enemies by using guerilla tactics and pre-gunpowder weapons will find everything they want in High Citadel.
