Book Review – Five Stars for Laurence Bradbury’s book, Fatal Flaw

2013-04-09 12.28.08

I delayed posting this blog until I could finish reading an extroardinary new book, Fatal Flaw, by a very talented writer, Laurence Bradbury. Laurence is from the UK and has written two books.  I was fortunate enough to read excepts from two of his books on his blog.  I fell in love with both of them.


As its cover states ‘A callous Murder, A Calculated Theft, A Drive for Vengeance, and Time is Running Out….  This book delivers on all counts.  The story takes you around the world from UK to Japan and to Thailand.   Laurence has an extensive knowledgeable of electronics due to his engineering background.  His true love though is product and car design which has enabled him to travel the world.  He was one of six who designed the Smart Car .  His knowledge has enabled him to write a blockbuster of a thriller of epic proportions.  As you read the book you can visualize the beauty of Japan and the wonder of Thailand.  Laurence puts so much depth and structure into his writing to create or describe a scene that you feel as if you are there.  Laurence also shows a sense of humor in his writing.  He makes his characters real and believable.


If you like murder, mayhem, and magnificent jewels, you will love this book.  His main character. Alexander Webb, is a strong, dynamic, thrill seeking adventurer who has a sensitive side.  He is a world traveler who finds action and adventure and intrigue wherever he goes.  He always finds time for love though.  Women will fall in love with him as they read this book.


I give this book 5 Stars out of 5.  You can reach Laurence at his website,
