Skin and Bones by Tom BaleTom Bale has quickly become a name you can trust for the bloody thriller. You can happily pick up any of his books and know that you are going to be entertained by assorted styles of violent action told in enthusiastic detail, and be left with a pleasurably high body count. This one involves a terrifyingly accomplished slaughter of a small village, behind which is a labyrinthine plot and back stabbing galore. Stupendous work, perfect for a Saturday afternoon read with a nice cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich.
