I thoroughly enjoyed The Domino Effect. It has a quick moving and sharp plot, some horrible characters to hiss at, simple, readable prose and a gripping climax. The Doctor, Fitz and Anji are trapped in an alternative reality governed by a sadistic matriarch. They are literally on the run for their lives and this makes much of the book exciting and in places gripping. Concentrating on his characters David Bishop knows how to make you hate his bad guys. The sinister Hastings is a real piece of work, his abuse of Fitz is quite horrible to read. If you are careful you can spot some of the Doctors old friends from "his" reality cropping up in this one. Yes it is another arc story but it is quite a quick read and contains enough action and suspense to see you through.
