Adrian Magson's latest Marc Portman book, A Hostile State, was given a brilliant write-up in Booklist:
"Fans of Magson's Marc Portman series know they can count on pulse-pounding action and plenty of surprising twists ... [a] diabolically clever plot, which delivers Magson's signature breakneck pace, adding a dash of romance, and further establishing Portman as an action hero who's hard to resist."

"Producing a crime novel in the midst of pandemic is difficult. If it's set in the present day, does the author ignore Covid-19? Pretend it's not there?

Brian McGilloway has opted for the bald-headed approach and it has worked beautifully ... This is a stylish, measured, superior police procedural."

"[A] great yarn with some very neat modern touches ... It's pacy and visual, it would sit very well alongside Marcella and Bloodlands as a TV series. Fennell dunnit!"
