Their savior is David Roth, a recent arrival in Boston and the owner of a grader, the only vehicle that can negotiate the snow-clogged roads. He saves the stranded travellers, but now they are trapped in town. Amongst them are two killers, desperate to get back to the stranded bus and the money they stole from the man they murdered. And there is the woman from the sports car, who isn’t quite who she claims she is. David plays the hero, believing that he is doing penance for his own painful secret, something so unforgivable that it would surely banish him from town if it ever came to light. But soon he is fighting for his life and the lives of his friends.

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.
