Robert Goddard The Corners of the Globe

The excellent Robert Goddard has begun a new Trilogy set during the peace negotiations after the First World War. Book one came out in paperback in June and book two in hardback  this month. They are both available as e-books. The books follow the attempts of ex WW1 flying ace James Maxted to solve his father's  death. They are both exciting edge of the seat stuff but despite James being an amateur he has astounding success in uncovering the lies and treachery that led to his father's demise. He uses his war experience to propel him into increasingly dare devil and dangerous situations. His quick thinking propels him forward. They are real page turners and a fascinating insight into the negotiations and machinations in Paris at that time.
I loved both of these books and now cannot wait for the last in the series and the final denouement. I think book one would make an excellent Reading Group Read as there is much too discuss about the Ways of the World at that time!
