Reviewed in Australia on 16 December 2017
If anything, this page-turning mystery WW1 novel is more riveting than its prequel, A Fatal Tide...! It skillfully weaves together a very human story of its fictional Australian hero caught up in a web of murder and mystery, amidst astounding, historically true events and characters. It is beautifully written, satisfyingly bringing to life dramatic historical events including the demise of Kitchener at sea, spy plots to overturn the outcomes of WW1, exotic locations including Gallipoli and Cairo, little discussed themes of aboriginal and women’s participation in the war, cameo encounters with Lawrence of Arabia and sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The perfect Christmas read or Father’s Day gift...
