The last book set up one of the most intriguing and deadly threats encountered so far. This book runs with it.
It’s the 1960’s and that means outer space and nuclear bombs. Both of which are effortlessly folded into the story in a way you couldn’t imagine. The sense of jeopardy has never been greater either and you are really worried at how many, if any, of the characters will survive.
Albuquerque is with us through the whole book and is on top form. Lots of drama in the action scenes and a brooding matt palette throughout.
Double Thumbs Up!
