This book was written by a teacher at the St Charles school in Pietermaritzburg, which my nephews attanded: when I heard their teacher had written a thriller I requested she send it to me so I could review it for the Sunday Times. Thank Heavens she did not.I like to encourage local writers by being supportive of ther work but, quite frankly, Boston Snowplough is simply not well written. There is a touch of Alastair MacClean to it as the hero [a doctor who has lost his licence] goes out again and again [and again and again and again] into the deep snow, clearing roads and rescuing people. He rescues the passengers on a stranded bus, two of which are ruthless killers, whom he brings back into the small community: its not long before they show their true colours [both white, as it happens] and the killings begin. Bitty, boring in parts, and badly structured, I'm not sure the book could be rescued, even with decent editing and a total rewrite. Dull to read, it must have been deadly to write and I can only say hats off to the author for sticking to it. But, a word of advice, don't give up your day job.
