Excellent praise for Max Seeck in Finland’s biggest daily Helsingin Sanomat

Max Seeck’s thriller works perfectly – the trilogy comes to an end in this book that has a plausible plot and well-drawn characters. The Call of Hades is exactly as strong as its predecessors; The Angels  of Hammurabi and The Mephisto Touch, and it is a perfect combination of spy story and action thriller.”
 Helsingin Sanomat daily newspaper
