A Surprising Mystery,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE MYSTERY ON THE MINIATURE RAILWAY: STEAM TRAIN DETECTIVE THRILLER (Kindle Edition)
I loved this story by June Winton, definitely her best to date.
The subject matter is surprising and very topical in terms of current news items. Particularly if you are up-to-date on where economic priorities overide environmental considerations and human interests.
June's story also raises issues on how an event labelled as a 'national emergency' can escalate out of control if too much power is put in the wrong hands.
The characters in the story are all very believeable and so was the situation which revolves around the kidnap of an eminent nuclear scientist in very strange circumstances. The situation was so realistic it was quite scary. But I loved the way the author resolved all the issues for all the characters. Oh! that real life could be changed in that way with the human touch.
