New Reviews: Franklin, Furst, Izner, James, Seymour, Templeton

Here are this week's new reviews and details of the current competition:

Latest Reviews:

Norman Price reviews Ariana Franklin's follow-up to her prize winning Mistress and the Art of Death - Death Maze (aka The Serpent's Tale) and finds it good but not as good as the first in the series;

Mike Ripley reviews the latest excellent espionage thriller from Alan Furst - The Spies of Warsaw;

Terry Halligan reviews Murder on the Eiffel Tower by Claude Izner, set during the Universal Exhibition of 1889;

Maxine Clarke reviews the newest from Peter James: Dead Man's Footsteps, a story that encompasses 9/11 in "a realistic, exciting yet dignified way";

Geoff Jones reviews E V Seymour's The Last Exile and his advice is to stick with it as it gets much better

and I review the latest available on audio book in the Marjory Fleming series by Aline Templeton: Lying Dead - it's a fine police procedural series coupled with a brilliant narrator in the shape of Cathleen McCarron.
