Fault Line (2012)

review 1: From a low-voltage & unpromising opening amongst St Austell's china clay workings, & the disappearance of company records, Robert Goddard's 2012 crime novel develops into an entertaining if convoluted whodunnit,whatdunnit & whydunnit! It moves in 3 distinct time-zones (1967-9 to ...

review 1: I found this book a thoroughly engrossing read. I took it with me when I was out of town for five days, thinking, given its 500-page length, that it would last me for the entire trip; however, it engaged me so much that I finished it in two days. The story begins when the presid...

review 1: Good mystery set primarily in Paris at time of the peace talks after WW1. Downside is the whole thing is still somewhat unresolved at the end when you see a nice large "To be continued" message. I was looking at the remaining pages and wondering how it was all going to get wrappe...
