Okay, things are trundling along at a better pace now. The end of next month sees me half way through the year (where has it gone?) so to be totally on track for reading 30 books by the end of the year, my total come the 30th June should really be 15.

Which means the rest of May and the whole of June have to be good reading months - I need to get through 5 books!

Unsurprisingly, given the title, this book follows on the tale of the Spook’s Apprentice, Tom Ward, from the last book I read.
