The Battle of the North Cape: The Death Ride of the Scharnhorst, 1943 (Campaign Chronicles) - Angus Konstam A solid 4 stars

I would not have guessed this was a debut novel. Well written and well paced.

In the story, a serial arsonist is terrorizing the city. Building are burning and people are dying. Arson is not exactly compelling crime fiction. In this case, it didn't matter as the characters were very entertaining and you knew the story was going to get more involved.

After about 3/4 the book was a 3 star book but the last quarter provided some interesting and unexpected plot twists. Had the final outcome been a bit more clever it may have been 4.5 stars.

Overall, a superb novel and a favourite of 2013.
