This review is from: Dream of Darkness (Paperback)
I usually enjoy Reginald Hill very much. This book was originally published under a pseudonym. It is set in Uganda at the start of Amin's rule, and in England in the present.

This review is from: Dream of Darkness (Paperback)
Reg Hill is one of my favourite authors,but this book was nowhere near his usual standard.Only the action bits were exciting.The rest was bitty and hard to follow.A strange format which didn't work for me,and the characters boring,
