I first read one of Rod Humphris Simon Ellice books (well, ok, four on the bounce - I enjoyed them that much) last year as part of a blog tour and liked the idea of there being novels (2) and novellas in the series as you can choose just how much 'Simon Ellice' you want at any time.
Getaway follows on from the last in the series, Bloodstock, and sees Si sailing up towards Corsica with the woman he rescued then. As always, trouble is never far away and our hero is soon tangling with the Corsican mafia. It's brutal but Ellice can look after himself... hopefully!
Ellice is not always a nice person, but he knows how to get the job done, the kind of guy you want on your side.
Getaway is novella size but packs plenty in for it's size and has me itching for the next in the series. Thoroughly enjoyed it 5/5*
Also a quick nod to the publishers, Rats Tails, who have, again, produced a lovely edition
Thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me on to the tour and to Rats Tails for providing the review copy.
