A very good follow up
on 15 November 2012
This is the author's second title featuring Tom Pascoe, who we first met in 'The Watermen'.
This time, he is still running the river police, and has to solve a murder mystery, which involves espionage, sabotage, and various other twists and turns.
The central character is still growing; he was a little one dimensional in the first book, but he grows somewhat in this instalment. The story has a couple of unexpected twists, which perhaps may limit Pascoe's character development in future books - if there are any, but we shall see.
Overall, this is a good read; the author's feel for the period is good, and If the era is of interest to you, you will like this book. If not, give it a try anyway, it may hook you.
