Orders from Berlin
Confidence. Readers who like character-driven suspense novels are those most likely to enjoy Simon Tolkien’s Orders from Berlin. This is Tolkien’s third novel to feature Detective Inspector William Trave, and in this outing, Trave’s skills are put to the test as he places himself at professional risk to get to the bottom of the case. Set in 1940s England, the story involves a plot to kill Churchill, directed from Berlin. MI6 is in the middle of something and Chief Inspector Quaid is confident about a guilty suspect. The real confidence should be placed in Trave’s talent. The suspense makes for rapid reading, although the mystery gets revealed earlier than will satisfy some readers. I enjoyed the novel and ended the book quite satisfied. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Orders from Berlin from amazon.com.
