And, she likes it!
Any review that opens with the statement that the book under consideration ‘marks a departure from the books I usually read’ makes me quake in my boots a little. Well, a lot, really.
I shouldn’t have worried.
The endorsement of Amanda from Mrs B. Book Reviews does count for a great deal. She sees fit to describe it as: ‘…rich and historically infused action’, ‘…a solid piece of investigative fiction,’ and concludes that: ‘[r]eaders have plenty to draw from in The Honourable Thief, it is an original and bracing novel.’
Given how much she reads, not to mention her standing in the Australian literary community… well, colour me pretty damned chuffed.
