  • Well written adventure series

    It's lovely to find a new series you know you're going to enjoy. This is the second volume: the first, 'Not The Faintest Trace', introduced Sergeant Frank Hardy, a retired British soldier living in New Zealand in the second half of the 19th century. Frank makes a great hero, tall, strong, darkly handsome and competent. His adventures are aided by his two friends, a Chinese cook and a Maori constable, and Mette, a Danish woman who starts out as the classic 'damsel in distress' but soon emerges as an intelligent, strong woman. Wilson has a great sense of history and has created an entirely believable world peopled with a fascinating cast of well-drawn characters and I'm looking forward to reading more about them all.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • good

    I am a big fan of this author but it is obvious that I need to read the first book in order to get the total story. If you have read the first book, then this book is pretty engrossing as I witness by the other reviewers but I could not really get into it without the background. If I can get the first book then I will re-read this one. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Getting better

    The second in the Frank Hardy series was a more entertaining story. The first felt more like a series of history lessons/factoids strung together with a threadbare plot and minimal characterisation. This one eased off on the history, and added more depth to the story. The improvement was sufficient to persuade me to try the third and see how it goes.

    Thanks for your feedback!
