#ThrowbackThursday ~ the Lighterman (Charles Holborne #3) by Simon Michael #Crime #HistFic @simonmichaeluk

Published in 2017 The Lighterman is the third book in the series. Not having read the first two books I was a little concerned, but happily there was enough back information woven into the story so that I didn’t feel confused at all or unable to follow the plot.
