I woke up one morning on holiday last week to find an incubus in my bed - on the Kindle beneath my pillow, where I'd been reading the night before.

I'd forgotten that I'd preordered the latest in David Penny's Thomas Berrington series, but was glad to find it. Although I had no idea what an incubus was, I was confident that book 4 in the Thomas Berrington series would be a cracking holiday read.

This time, Thomas's first whiff of a murder mystery appears while he is escorting a hundred Moorish refugees to safety in war-torn territory where Spanish troops are eroding the power of the Moors. After a hazardous journey they take refuge in the soon-to-be-besieged clifftop town of Ronda, (stupidly, I took a while to stop mentally reading it as Rhondda, an entirely different place!) Here the mystery thickens, and Thomas is torn between tracking down a serial killer and seeking resolution to the conflict between the two cultures that is decimating lives and territory. There is an uncomfortable irony in Thomas and his trusty team of fiancee Lubna and sidekick Jorge spending so much time pursuing the perpetrator of a serial killer while so many lives are lost as a matter of course in the battles between Moors and Spanish.

While Thomas is of course a surgeon rather than a soldier, his combative skills are called on more than ever in this book. There are many scenes of hand-to-hand fighting, as well as numerous grisly deaths. Normally I'd baulk at scenes of violence, not because I am squeamish about blood, but because I don't like life being cheapened, but in these books, although there are many deaths, the fighting is done with appropriate surgical precision, and the descriptions do not at all glorify the violence.

Read all the Thomas Berrington books but am halfway through this one. Really good, the way you realise after a while the Spanish names for the places that have been given the Arabic names that would have been widely used at the time of the Moors is so interesting. Especially when you have been to the different places yourself. Anyone interested in history would, I'm sure, like these books.

I've read all of the series of the Thomas Berrington books. I'd highly recommend them if you want a story covering both historical fact and lots of fiction.
Plus a who dun it to keep your interest peaked.
Once started you have to finish.
I'd recommend reading them in order but it's not essential.

Thomas, Lubna and Jorge feature again in this story where the Spanish, including Isabel and Ferdinand, feature laying siege to Rhonda.

Finished reading this in the early hours. Thomas and Jorge seemed such real, flawed human beings and all the characters are so well written. Book five awaited with impatience. Strongly recommend all of the series..

Really enjoyed this read. I like the various facets of Thomas Berrington's character and the convoluted twists and turns of the plot. Very satisfying.
