Recommended readers:

  • Fans of spy novels
  • fans of historical mysteries
  • fans of Maisie Dobbs
  • and readers of WWI-era fiction

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3.5/5 characters
  • 3.5/5 plot
  • 3.5/5 overall


The second in Robert Goddard’s The Wide World adventure trilogy picks up where The Ways of the World left off (and ends, just FYI, in a major cliff hanger readers will likely have to wait a year to continue, unless you can get ahold of the British edition). Having discovered the truth behind the death of his father, Max now commits himself as a double agent between great powers seeking to reconstruct Post WWI-Europe (and we all know how well that turned out). With a racing plot moving between characters, The Corners of the Globe is a plot and character-driven thriller that proves the only way to win is to stand and fight.

The Corners of the Globe is available in the U.S. on June 7th
