Sorry to hear of the recent death of Bill Paxton. He was surely the single most underrated Hollywood star of the 80s and 90s. Met him once on the (incredibly windy) set of Evening Star in Houston (we have a problem), Texas, in 1996. The film was a follow-up to Terms of Endearment and quite a Shirley MacLaine diva-fest. He seemed a nice, easygoing guy. Little-known fact, he had strong British family connections and used to spend a lot of time over here hanging out in pubs in the Richmond/Twickenham area. Let's hear that line one more time...

The book is the first in a series starring my reluctant sleuth Ingo Finch, whom we meet here in the very final hours of the nineteenth century, serving as a doctor with the Royal Army Medical Corps during the PR disaster that is Boer War. On leave in Cape Town, things take a strange twist when Finch is asked by local police to identify the body of a murdered British officer. Shocked by the identity of the victim and fobbed off with a too-convenient resolution to the crime, he decides to investigate further.
From then on, Finch is in way over his head, plunged into a web of deceit and intrigue involving military intelligence and the very power brokers of the Empire, forced on the run alongside Australian nurse Annie Jones — his accidental and rather bolshy accomplice.
If you buy it, thank you. If you like it, then you'd be doing me a huge favour by posting a brief review on Amazon. Word of mouth is everything!
