Sunday book review – Cruel Intentions by Alan Stewart

This is the sequel to the excellent Calls from the Wild (reviewed here). PC Bob McKay gets to tackle more wildlife crimes such as Fox hunting and deer poaching. Grouse moors, and their shady managers, play large parts in this volume along with bothered Beavers, baited Badgers and disturbed dolphins.

Alan Stewart writes very well and the plot zips along, but his greater strength is that he knows about wildlife, wildlife law and the details of investigating crimes against wildlife, from first hand.  There are few who could possibly write such books, and none that has, except Alan Stewart. It’s a good job for we readers that he writes so well too.

The cover? Very attractive – I’d give it 8/10.

Cruel Intentions by Alan Stewart is published by Thirsty Noir.



My forthcoming book, Reflections, will be published on 4 July and already can be ordered.
