The first novel by this author, In The Blood, was excellent & it seems quite a long time ago. His second novel To The Grave is just as good & really well worth the wait. The novel is so well written that it soon transports you right into the pages & you are standing right beside the characters,the writing is so vivid you can hear & smell what is written on the page. I loved the WW2 chapters! Like all good novels before long you start to care about the caracters, they seem so real that you don't want anything bad to happen to them. Mena, the main character is like any young girl with very real hopes & dreams. This novel give you a tense crime thriller with just the right amount of human feelings & relationships. The subject was handled sensitively & with care. Steve Robinson was already high on my top ten author list & To The Grave just confirms my original opinion that Steve Robinson will soon be up at the top with the best of the them. If you don't buy this novel you will miss out on a wonderfully written & highly entertaining novel that keeps the pages turning from start to finish.
