This review is from: A Spider's Thread Across the Tay (Kindle Edition)
What a delight to read a well-written, well-crafted book at such a reasonable price. From the Prologue, which gives us a factual account of the last minutes of the disaster, to the surprise fictional ending, I quickly became involved in two stories.
As a new-comer to Glasgow I had read the author's `Who belongs to Glasgow?' which shows, through extensive research, how the vibrant, multi-cultural community of Glasgow came into being.
In `A Spider's Thread' this attention to historical accuracy is again reflected, this time woven in with a gripping fictionalised but highly credible story.
Although the historical ending is no surprise - the Bridge still collapses - the fictional part of the story left me wanting to know what happened to Andrew, a man with a conscience, so I look forward to the sequel.
This is an author who knows how to write.
