    1. Book Reviewed by Stacey on whisperingstoriesAs daft as it might seem, I actually read book two, 37 Hours, and book three, 88° North, before I got around to reading this book, so it was nice to be able to see exactly where Nadia’s story began.When she was just a little girl Nadia Laksheva watched as men burst into her home and dragged her father out, he was never seen again. She spent years feeling guilty, believing that she could of helped him. Her relationship with her mother was fraught, an [...]

    2. 5☆ Jam Packed Full of Action, Thrills & Suspense! Prepared to be left breathless!66 Metres is the first book in the Nadia Laksheva spy thriller series.It was action packed, thrilling, a race against time, good vs bad, it was real adrenaline rush.There was a fair amount of deep sea diving, which actually took my breath away. I felt as though it was me going underwater.It was a lil claustrophobic but in a good way as it felt so real.When Nadia and her sister get caught up in the underground [...]

    3. 3.5* --> 4*66 Metres introduces us to Nadia Luksheva, who has been forced to undertake missions to keep her sister safe from harm. For the past five years, Nadia has been working for Kadinsky, who’s been holding her sister prisoner as an incentive. But now Nadia has just one last mission to complete and she and her sister will be allowed to go free.Nadia is instructed to retrieve a device, a military weapon called The Rose. But as is always the case with things like these, there are of cour [...]

    4. 66 Metres is a fantastic thriller. The whole diving thing was so interesting and the atmosphere created so perfectly, I felt completely in the setting. The characters are cool- Russian characters always are, even the mean ones- and the plot, even though the usual 'terrorist' kind of thing, was actually really well beefed out- the main plot and the subplots, equally. I will definitely be continuing with the series!

    5. From the opening pages the reader is faced with an intense storyline and is first introduced to a young Nadia Laksheva who is yet to face up to the harsh realities of her dysfunctional family. As she ages she learns that her father was not the man she thought he was, not a saint, but a killer. Her sister is a drug addicted prostitute and her mother is a cold and distant figure who is quick to remind her that her father was a killer. Combine these things with the harsh freezing temperatures of Ru [...]

    6. Nadia's life is cold. Not just because it starts in Moscow. Not just because her father is a killer. Not because her mother is hard to understand and her sister stuck with a terrible crowd. Nadia's life is cold because there is no way out. At least until an opportunity gives her the choice of sacrificing five years working for a bad guy for a better life for her and her sister, away from the Russian's affairs, away from her father's legacy.Nadia is not your usual character. I felt she barely had [...]

    7. 66 METRES by J.F. Kirwan is a spy thriller with a difference and a must-read for fans of the genre.Nadia's life in Russia has never been normal with a killer for a father and a cold, distant mother. Her love for her sister is what keeps her going and when their lives are threatened, Nadia signs away her life for five years to gain freedom for her and her sibling.Five years of training and missions for a Russian criminal thug has certainly taken its toll but as Nadia finds herself diving into the [...]

    8. I wouldn’t say a spy thriller would be top of my list of choices to read but I’m gradually coming round to this sub-genre, having read Rob Sinclair’s Enemy and James Ryker series. So when I was asked to read 66 Metres, I was interested to explore another spy story.The characters in 66 Metres are larger than life but it’s not at the detriment of the book. I think that this adds to the complex tale that the author has woven across a number of locations, the main of which is the Scilly Isla [...]

    9. All my reviews can be found on my blog: pageturnersnook.wordpressI absolutely adore a good spy novel, and a good spy novel 66 Metres certainly is. I soooooo want to be Nadia Laksheva, but without the hard-hitting family life it took to get there it was a rough ‘un!! Nadia is a heroine like no other and I have a feeling that she is a character that a lot of readers are going to fall for – in a hard way, she is die-hard!!! Nadia is like the girl from Blindspot (f you haven’t watched it, I hi [...]

    10. The first novel in J. F. Kirwan’s Nadia Laksheva series introduces a heroine that readers are bound to fall hard for. “The only thing worth killing for is family,” reads the book’s telling dedication, and as readers meet Nadia and her family, they’re led down a seedy storyline involving government corruption, a labyrinth of dead ends and lost leads.66 Metres brings readers along for a rollicking and fast-paced ride that includes undersea interludes (66 meters is the depth at which air [...]

    11. donnasbookblog.wordpress/I really enjoyed this book, it was fast paced and I was gripped from the first few pages.  The characters were great and I really thought that Nadia was an excellent lead character – I do love a good strong female lead in this kind of book and the author certainly did not disappoint!  I gave this book a high four stars, its definitely a book and author I would recommend, so much so that I have the next book in the series lined up to read already! 

    12. *I received a free e-copy of this book in return for an honest review as part of a review competition by Books and the Bear.*I normally avoid thriller novels, especially if they have the word ‘spy’ anywhere in the blurb, but I confess that this book had me hooked from the Prologue. It provided just the right amount of characterisation, background and plot set-up to be intriguing without giving away what the actual plot would be or falling into lengthy descriptive prose.I found myself immedia [...]

    13. I am often a bit reluctant about starting a new series because often they start good and go downhill or they just mean that I'm committed to reading too many books in order to keep up. There aren't that many series that I read and follow but something about the blurb for 66 Metres appealed to me.I have dived before, quite a few times before I unfortunately got the bends (long story but it was because I was dehydrated from being seasick rather than anything I did) but that scared me enough to put [...]

    14. 66 Metres is an excellent debut novel for J.F. Kirwan. I don’t recall ever reading a novel where so much of the story takes places underwater (without being set on a submarine), but Kirwan’s diving experience combined with his descriptive style made it easy to imagine how these scenes played out. I learned a lot about the ocean, currents and diving, and would love to see a shipwreck one day!In this first outing, Nadia is a fledgling spy. After 3 years of intensive training and 2 years on ope [...]

    15. This story was Brilliant! I don't throw that word around very often when describing a book, but in this case it absolutely fits. It was very exciting, lots of action! I loved reading about the deep sea diving which I know nothing about. And, it is something I would never do! It seems way too scary for me. But it was very interesting to read about. You can definitely tell the author is an experienced diver.There is a lot going on in this book, seriously never a dull moment. There are a lot of pla [...]

    16. This is the first of the Nadia Laksheva spy thriller series. We initially meet Nadia when she leaves home on her 18th birthday and heads to Moscow, to meet up with her sister, Katya. Within the first few months, Nadia ends up in trouble, and Katya's gangster boyfriend, Kadinsky, saves her with the agreement that she will work for him for 5 years and then he will free both Nadia and Katya.The main story starts at the end of the 5 years, when Nadia is taking part in what will be her last mission f [...]

    17. I received a free copy of 66 Metres in exchange for an honest review.66 Metres begins with gripping intrigue. Right from the first page, I knew this novel's plot promised an intense and exciting experience. I followed well developed characters into a world that was foreign to me and, thus, full of surprises. Some of the characters were on the edge of morally bankrupt, callous beyond comprehension, and I hated them. One or two I managed to feel twinges of sympathy. That's the gift of an accomplis [...]

    18. A very fast pacing book that cannot be put down from the very first chapter. The multi-character story telling humanises characters that are indeed gangsters and/or terrorists, with an undefined line between ethics and personal interest. Towards the end, as the plot and characters are fully drawn, the book becomes more predictable in a comical British style that only adds to the texture of the book.Overall a smart and interesting plot that is easy to read and keeps you engrossed in the story unt [...]

    19. This gritty novel captured me after the initial set up of the many characters. Set in the realm of the world's power thugs, it has believable characters and a plot that could be out of today's newspapers.I liked Nadia. She is a tough woman, pitting loyalty to her sister against the vow she made her mother to never kill. I felt for her, getting caught up in the world of ruthless power mongers. She has to overcome deep pain to succeed in her task.The plot is fascinating, with several groups wantin [...]

    20. 66 metres is my very first spy thriller novel. This is a genre I have never read before so I wasn't quite sure what I was going to make of it. Well I can honestly say I will definitely be reading more of this genre, its so exciting!!66 Metres for me was intense, the more I read the more I didn't want to put it down. I found myself thinking about the main characters Nadia and Jake at every given moment, I constantely wanted to know what was going to happen next. J.F. Kirwan really gets you hooked [...]

    21. I would like to start by saying that I don't have much experience of reading spy thrillers, this however certainly didn't put me off of reading 66 Metres as I found the blurb to be so intriguing.Nadia is devoted to her sister Katya and she has one last mission to do at the hands of Kadinsky to free them both from his evil clutches forever. However the mission proposed is the deadliest one yet, a mission to retrieve The Rose, a weapon capable of great destruction when in the wrong hands. I found [...]

    22. *I recieved a free copy of this book in return for an honest book review for the review competition by Books and the Bear*66 Metres is a great read and Nadia is a great character. J. F Kirwin has done a brilliant job in writing about a women’s history of abuse and her emotional turmoil, which is rare to find in a story revolving about a lady. Nadia’s journey feels like the reader walking up to their own liberation. The author does not shy away from deeply engraved social issues like racism a [...]

    23. The next best thing to diving. I am a scuba diver and was amazed at how the diving scenes were portrayed, very lifelike. Highly recommended, whether you dive or not.

    24. Espionage, thriller, mystery… 66 Metres has it all. It’s exciting, full speed but in it’s espionage genre a bit predictable. First half is well written and fun to read but towards the ending things are getting cluttered and maybe some choices in the storytelling should have been different (if there’s a 2nd book in this series (?) planned).66 Metres is J.F. Kirwan’s first book and it is a good one, there’s some room for improvement still looking forward to his/hers (?) next one.

    25. Gritty. 66 Metres is gritty.Exactly what is expected in the shadowy world of crime families, covert operatives, and terrorists looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and those who crave only power.There are no good guys. Only those with agendas—be they escaping past demons or seeking to possess future riches.There are no friendships… only alliances.And they are temporary.Nadia Laksheva is our protagonist, trapped into service for five years in this dangerous world to pay off [...]

    26. All reviews can be found on my blog at thewritinggarnet.wordpressIf you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know that I am a HUGE fan of J.F.Kirwan and this series. Now, usually I would suggest reading book serial's in order and, whilst you can get away with reading the second book in this series BEFORE the first one (just like I did), I found that I was unable to enjoy the first book as much as I would have liked because I knew what was going to happen later on down the line. Make sen [...]

    27. 66 Metres is the first book in the Nadia Laksheva spy thriller series and now I am left thinking why didn't I read this book sooner! This is definitely what I call a crime thriller.First of all I have to say that I love the fact this book features a strong kick ass main character….Nadia. Who we meet her at the age of 18 after her father’s death she learns that her dad was a killer. and her mother is dying. Nadia’s character is quickly built up in the first few chapters giving us plenty of [...]

    28. I managed to go about reading this series a bit backwards, I started with book two by mistake and then, of course, couldn't wait to read book three but I knew that I couldn't not read this one and I am so glad I circled back to do so! Whilst I understood everything that happened in subsequent books reading this just slotted some pieces together for me in terms of relationships and motivations.I feel like I got to know Nadia really well by reading this book and finding out about more about her ba [...]

    29. “She’d been fourteen when two men in combat fatigues and balaclavas burst into the kitchen where she and her father were enjoying breakfast. She could have darted for it, threatened them, helped him. But she hesitated. The moment slipped past. They threw a black hood over his head, cuffed him, and dragged him away to be interrogated, tortured, executed and buried in the woods. A single thought haunted her ever since. Had he known they would come?”Nadia promised 5 years of her life and 10 o [...]
