New Book Review: The Far Side of the World by Daniel Kalla – reviewed by Ian Shone

the-far-side-of-the-skyA new book review from Ian Shone:

Coming off the last book reviewed for Alt Hist (Rebecca Cantrell’s A Game of Lies) there seems to be a certain accidental continuity with this book, which deals with a Jewish doctor’s flight from Vienna to Shanghai in the wake of the Anschluss. It’s another tense but sober story of life under the shadow of Nazism, tastefully and sincerely written, and it benefits from a similar consistency of pacing.

A Games of Lies by Rebecca Cantrell reviewed by Ian Shone

A Game of LiesWe have just published a review by Ian Shone of Rebecca Cantrell’s A Game of Lies – it’s an espionage thriller set during the 1936 Berlin Olympics – so quite a timely publication! The plot involves the leaking of Nazi secrets to the British and a murder mystery. Ian thought that it was a very readable thriller.
