Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A compelling mixture of communists, the Cold War, British intelligence and Nazi death doctors, all embroiled in a science-based plot blanketed in the deathly fog of post war London … wonderfully atmospheric. Twins figure in an interesting side theme – twins stillborn and twins murdered. The science of the book centres around DNA, the blueprint of life and as the double helix of the DNA molecules twist and turn, so too does the plot. Highly enjoyable.

Similar this month: None but try Jacqueline Winspear.
Comparison: Robert Harris, John Le Carré, Henry Porter.

Synopsis

Visibility by Boris Starling

London, 1952. As the fog rolls in, the chase begins…

A stranger's approach offering highly sensitive information seemed routine to an ex-spy turned policeman. But when a body turns up instead of state secrets, Detective Inspector Herbert Smith finds himself in a race against time to solve the murder.

For he is not the only one after the dead man's secret. It seems the CIA, KGB and MI-5 are all vying to get to the truth first and some are prepared to kill for it.

As the Great Smog descends on London, bringing chaos and death, Herbert finds himself facing one of the greatest evils of the twentieth century. At stake is the biggest prize of all: the key to life itself.

Reviews

'Breathless... with numerous twists and a gloriously far-fetched climax... the atmospheric portrait of London leaves the greatest impression.' Evening Standard

'Oozes authenticity... the plot plumbs fascinating depths...some wonderfully unpredictable twists. Mystery at its best.' Guardian

'Engrossing… Starling is a name to watch… an intelligent and thought-provoking book.' New Statesman

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
