#bookreview ~ Tabula Rasa (A Lambeth Group Thriller) @ADPase

Tabula Rasa: the end is nigh…
(A Lambeth Group Thriller)
By Gordon Bickerstaff

A hundred years ago, a wealthy family of visionaries prophesied the devastation that global warming would bring to world food supplies in the 21st century. They decided to prepare for the worst, and embark on an ambitious plan of revolution.

Lambeth Group agents, Zoe Tampsin and Gavin Shawlens, prepare to investigate the unusual death of a government defence scientist. Someone is determined to stop them before they get started. Zoe uncovers two unfamiliar words, Tabula Rasa. The only other clue is the curious behaviour of the dead scientist's son, Ramsay.

Posing as a couple, Gavin and Zoe enter the secret and dangerous world of Ramsay's aristocratic guardians, headed by philanthropist billionaire, Lord Zacchary Silsden.

What Gavin uncovers, shocks him to the bottom of his soul. Does he have the courage and the conviction to stop the greatest revolution in human history?

What Zoe discovers about Gavin—words can't describe. Zoe is faced with an impossible choice, but one thing is certain, she will not hesitate to do her duty, no matter the cost.

What did I think of the book?

What if Armageddon wasn't an act of God, but an act of man?

There is something very suspicious about the death of a renowned British Scientist. Lambeth Group agents, Zoe Tampsin is determined to find out the truth. But at what cost?

Well, Gordon Bickerstaff has done it again!

Full of intrigue and ripe with action, Tabula Rasa: The end is nigh ...  by Gordon Bickerstaff is a not to be missed read. This book is a gritty race against time story, which is simply unputdownable.

Zoe Tampsin is a female James Bond, I can think of no other way to describe her. She is tough, clever, but human. Her character came across as very real in the telling. As for the antagonists, they are a twisted bunch with a warped idea about how to save the world. Their goal is to create a new Eden, but at what cost?

The story is super fast-paced, and it certainly is a very compelling read. I really enjoyed it.

If you love high action thrillers then you can not go far wrong with  Tabula Rasa: The end is nigh.

I Highly Recommend.

About the author

I was born and raised in Glasgow but spent my student years in Edinburgh. On summer vacations, I learned plumbing, garden maintenance, and I cut the grass in the Meadows. I learned some biochemistry and taught it for a while before I retired to write fiction. I do some aspects of DIY moderately well and other aspects not so well. I live with my wife in Scotland where corrupt academics, mystery, murder and intrigue exists mostly in my mind. I have written the Gavin Shawlens series of thrillers: Deadly Secrets, Everything To Lose, The Black Fox, Toxic Minds and Tabula Rasa. More will come in due course. I enjoy walking in the hills, 60s & 70s music, reading and travel.
