Book review

One of my regular and enjoyable tasks is reviewing thrillers for Shots Magazine. The latest read is 'The Abomination' by Jonathan Holt - see here. It's set in Venice, which provides a nicely sinister backdrop to a tale of sex-trafficking, corruption, war crimes and religious intolerance, and you can smell the muddy water in the lagoon all the way through.

It might not be the side to Venice some tourists have come to know and love, but it's a great setting for this excellent book, and the protagonists, Captain Katerina Tapo and 2nd Lt. Holly Boland (US Army), are a good team.
