The Night Shift (Sam Pope Series Book 1) by Robert Enright
Published 8th September 2018
232 pages

Sam Pope was ex forces, now working in the archives of Scotland Yard. An unimposing man who was a bit of a loner. But he had a secret he worked the night shift. However, he forced to decide whether to break a promise or walk away.
Sam Pope was one of the most bad ass characters that I have read in a while. A man of action trained to be the best, who had a sense of justice. He kept himself to himself and was underestimated by many that he worked with. After a bombing at the London Marathon, he knew that he needed to find out who was behind it and when innocent lives were in danger, his training kicked in and he was a man on a mission. Going up against the men behind the bombing he got support from an unusual source. Throughout the story, you understand what made Pope the man he was and the revelation about his family left me agog. Finding out more about his army life, just enforced how highly trained he was and the explained how he was injured on his final tour.
This book lived up to the tag line, it was full of action and by the end I had lost count on how many dead bodies there were. Some of the kills were due to torture so can you can imagine what carnage was caused. There were times when I could not believe how much punishment Pope’s body could take and it showed just how serious he was of getting justice. This book was fast paced, as there was always something going on. However. there were times when it did slow down and the scenes involving the police officer’s funeral were really moving. From page 1 you are drawn into a story that will please thriller lovers.
I have enjoyed reading this author’s other stories about Bermuda, but Sam Pope is now my favourite. Can’t wait to see what this character does next.

Bermuda: A thrilling prequel novella by Robert Enright
Published 4th June 2018
Reviewed by Yvonne Davies

If you have read Doorways and The Absent Man, then you would recognise Franklyn “Bermuda” Jones. Whilst hints are throughout these books of his earliest life in the BTCO, I wanted to know more. Bermuda is that story.
Reading this book, you soon realise what a lonely life Bermuda had. Having no one to explain why he can see the Otherside, his only hope was medical intervention, which did not go down well. Once he was on the BTCO radar he found his purpose with his life and we get to learn more about the agency and the people who worked there.
We follow him whilst he is going through training and on his first case. We are introduced to is partner Argyle, but the author does not give to much away about his past, given me hope that a short story will be written about him. On this case Bermuda spent most of his time with his trainer Denham. I really liked Denham, he was no nonsense and reminded me of a sergeant major in the Army. There was a bond between himself and Bermuda and by the end I think they were friends. Denham whilst not liking Bermuda’s methods knew that he was an exceptional agent.
This was a quick read and it was interesting to follow Bermuda from not having a purpose to becoming the agent who got the job done. The creatures from the Otherside are fiendish as ever, their killings are savage. Because Bermuda is not as experienced, the story felt more intense. If you have not read any of the full length novels than this is a good book to start your journey, if like me you have than it a good book to carry on Bermuda’s story.

After saving the world 6 months prior, Bermuda Jones is back. When women are turning up dead and with their hearts ripped out, Bermuda is called to Glasgow to help solve the case.
It was great to read that Bermuda had not changed. He still balked authority to get the job done and his smart mouth annoyed everyone he worked with. However, working with the Glasgow Police, he met his match with DC Sam McAllister, hard drinking and as stubborn as him.
Having read Doorways, I knew that I was in for an action packed thrilling read and from page one I was not disappointed. After destroying Big Ben in Doorways, I didn’t think that Bermuda could top this but destroying another monumental building in London and derailing a tram in Glasgow, proved me wrong. Argyle played a bigger part in this story and the more you read, the more you learn about Argyle’s past. Spending time with Bermuda had rubbed off on Argyle as he picked up some of his habits and some of his witty remarks brought a smile to my face. The Others featured in this book were more sadistic than Barnaby and whilst the world was not in danger, the women in Glasgow were.
The story was well plotted and flowed smoothly. With all the action in the book making it a page turner as I wanted to know if Bermuda survives the constant onslaught. There was moving moments when McAllister and Bermuda reminisce about their past. The ending was unexpected and I am still in shock as I cannot believe what the author did. However, I hope there will be more in this series as who does not love a tattooed bad guy who saves the world

Working for Behind The Curtain Organisation(BTOC), Franklyn Jones, Bermuda to his friends, had a skill, he found missing people. Not people who just up-sticks and wanted a better life, but the ones who left no trace. Having a gift to see “Others” creatures from another world, he protected he was tasked to keep the peace between the two worlds. Working with Bermuda was Argyle, an Other who lived on earth and worked with the humans. Most of their mission were easily solved, but when a high number of people went missing at a rapid rate and a strange symbol cropped up at every scene. Bermuda and Argyle had a race against the clock, when Barnaby a deranged other wanted to destroy humanity.
Bermuda was not your typical save the world type of guy. He smoked too much, ate a lot of Tic Tacs, did not like authority and hated his gift. I loved him, whilst his methods were quite unorthodoxed he got the job done. Argyle was the complete opposite, a warrior who took his job seriously. Saying that they worked well together and were more like friends than partners.
From the moment you start this book you are transported in to a Bermuda’s world. There is a lot of action in this story making it a fast-paced read. Throughout the story you learn about Bermuda’s past and you understand why he is so troubled and you do feel sorry for him. The final battle is built up to a climatic ending and if it was written a couple of months ago, it would explain why Big Ben is now silent. Thanks to the descriptive way the author wrote I could close my eyes and picture Bermuda, Barnaby and Argyle straight away, and would love to see these characters represented in a video game, like CSGO, that I always play with boosting online that help me gain rank in csgo.
Whilst this book has been categorised as sci-fi, paranormal and urban fantasy, it also has a mystery/ thriller feel to it and readers of any of these genres will enjoy it. This is the 1st book I have read by this author and with book 2 already in the pipeline I am looking forward to more of Bermuda Jones’ cases.
