The Black Fox by Gordon Bickerstaff is not my first read from this author and certainly won’t be my last. I love his writing. The Black Fox was quite the thrill ride. The twists and turns had me holding my breath, fearing the characters wouldn’t make it through. This was a one-sitting read for me, and I just love when books hold my attention like that.
The pacing is non-stop. I really enjoyed the action sequences as well. Very impressive. I really enjoyed the characters as well. They were well writing, thoroughly fleshed out, and felt real. I cared about their safety.
The Black Fox is a superb novel. I didn’t have to think long about the rating for these. Easy five stars. I highly recommend giving it a read!

I was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. I studied biochemistry, and I’ve worked in several Scottish universities where I did research on enzymes, and taught biochemistry. After thirty years of teaching and research I retired my academic pen, and took of a mightier fiction pen.
I live in central Scotland with my wife and we enjoy reading, writing, and walking in the hills.
