>EUROCRIME REVIEW: BLOOD ALONE

My review of Blood Alone by James Benn has been posted here at Euro Crime. Set amid the confusion of the Allied Invasion of Sicily in 1943 I thought the book lost itself between the different genres, and became more war thriller than crime fiction.

The painting shows a tent and trees in Algeria 1943, on the way to Sicily, Anzio, Rome and victory in the Mediterranean Theatre.

  1. >Norman – Thanks for this thoughtful and careful review. I know what you mean about stories that don't establish the kind of novel they are. There's no harm in being a crime novel that's a thriller, for instance, but that can lead to some lack of focus. I appreciate your comments on the book.
