BookLife Prize Review

I recently received a review from BookLife Prize for West Wind Clear, my fourth book in the Clement Wisdom Series.

 Plot: West Wind Clear is the fourth title in the Clement Wisdom series, which centres on the titular character, who was once a married vicar in East Sussex before being recruited as an intelligence operative. Knox brilliantly blends history with espionage and compassionate characterization.

Prose: Knox’s prose offers a winning blend of voice-driven warmth and historical detail. 

Originality: While subtle in its execution, Knox brings a quiet and unique power to the page.

Character/Execution: Readers will benefit from having read the previous titles in the series, but Clement will nevertheless leave an impact on first-time readers as, in this instalment, Knox whisks her protagonist away to far-flung war-time regions. 

West Wind Clear is the fourth book in the Clement Wisdom Series available from all online booksellers and in selected bookstores.

Canberra November 12

My thanks to Rebecca and her team at The Pulp Book Cafe (O’Hanlon Place, Nicholls) in North Canberra for stocking the four books in my Clement Wisdom WW2 espionage novels and for inviting me to their wonderful cafe book shop to meet their readers and sign books on Saturday November 12.

See you there.
