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 more ›
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.
