Terror of the Innocent, Mike Boshier
Somebody called Jess Lowther has been demanding that I post reviews of a couple of Mike Boshier's books that were entered in the 2018 Ngaio Marsh Awards. These reviews have been queued up on the site for sometime now, and I've been resisting posting them as there's nothing much I can contribute to discussion of the books. My apologies to the author, I had intended leaving it at no comment.
Originally drafted in 2018: TERROR OF THE INNOCENT is the second book in the John Deacon action adventure series, which shows some improvements over the first from a plotting point of view. As always, other readers may find these books considerably more appealing.
