A rare quiet day so am making the most of it and doing some blogging.
I have very recently finished Malice by Hugh Fraser – ‘Malice’ is book 3 in the bestselling Rina Walker series, following ‘Harm’ and ‘Threat’. London 1964. Gang warfare is breaking out and Rina Walker’s struggle to survive amid the battles and betrayals of a gruesome cast of racketeers and gangsters requires all her considerable skills as an assassin. Playing one side off against the other to protect those she loves, Rina is caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse where her life is just one of many at stake…
Loved both Harm and Threat and have been looking forward to the release of Malice for quite some time.
This is a fabulous read and the best of the series so far in my humble opinion.
Great scene setting, locations extremely well described, and a superb story. And I have extreme admiration for Rina – misplaced possibly but she is quite a character and her life is one I enjoy reading about enormously.
There is something that sets this series apart from others I have read on similar topics, possibly the grit, realism and overall quality of the writing as it stands out as a brilliant series and I look forward to reading more by Hugh Fraser in the future.
Talking of Hugh Fraser, back he July 2016 he very kindly took part in a Q and A for the blog and should you be interested in learning more about this very interesting author and famous actor, you can do so here.
