C.R.O.P.: Covert Rural Observation Posts are places where men like Danny 'Badger' Baxter hide for endless, motionless hours, secretly recording criminal or terrorist activity.

But now Badger has a bigger job than photographing dissident Republicans in muddy Ulster fields or Islamic extremists on rainswept Yorkshire moors.

I.E.D.: Improvised Explosive Devices are the roadside bombs which account for 80% of British casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I've reviewed books in the past.  It's a challenge because you want to respect the effort the writer put into the book.  You also have to be sensitive that what you dislike may say more about you than the novel.  I think that's why I thought you did such a nice job with this review.  It seemed very judicious.

Best to you,
